MUST SEE VIDEO: State Senator Mary Lazich, re: Sonya's Law

Pro-Life news


I’ve known state Senator Mary Lazich a long time. I’ve worked with and for her. She’s not just a colleague, she’s a dear friend.

I don’t believe I’ve ever been more proud of her than I was today when her ultrasound bill passed on the floor of the state Senate.

State Senate Approves Sonya's Law

"We stand with women who want to make a truly informed decision". . . Senator Mary Lazich, Author of Sonya's Law

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Wisconsin Right to Life today is hailing the passage of Senate Bill 206 (Sonya's Law) in the State Senate.

"Wisconsin Right to Life is deeply appreciative to Senator Mary Lazich for her tremendous leadership on this issue and to the members of the State Senate who voted for this important legislation," said Susan Armacost, Legislative Director for Wisconsin Right to Life.

Senate bill 206 (Sonya's Law) is legislation that provides a baby with the opportunity for his mother to see him through ultrasound before his mother makes a choice about how to proceed with her pregnancy.  The woman can choose the type of ultrasound after all options are explained to her.  The ultrasound helps to determine the age of the baby. 

Sonya’s Story           

Sonya, mother of two children, learned she was pregnant with her third child this past November.  Sonya was stunned – how could this be?

She had taken precautions -- but now she was pregnant.  Sonya worried about how she could handle another child, emotionally and financially.  She seriously thought about abortion.

Sonya saw a Milwaukee transit bus ad about a free ultrasound and decided to have one.  She learned she was seven weeks pregnant.  Once she saw her child and realized his heart was beating, Sonya made an emotional connection with her baby and made the decision to carry him to term. Sonya will deliver a baby boy in July.

"In spite of the blatant misinformation being promoted by the opponents of Sonya's Law, this legislation does not force women to have a specific type of ultrasound, said Armacost.  "It is up to the women to choose the type of ultrasound she prefers, after all options are explained to her.  The actual language of the law states:  'perform an obstetric ultrasound on the pregnant woman, using whichever tranducer the woman chooses after the options have been explained to her.'"

"During the floor debate, Senator Lazich eloquently summed up why Sonya's Law is so greatly needed," said Armacost.  "She said, 'We stand with women who want to make a truly informed decision.'"

"Wisconsin Right to Life stands with Senator Lazich and with Representative Pat Strachota, the Assembly author of Sonya's Law, in their efforts to empower women in making decisions regarding how to proceed with their pregnancies."

Senator Lazich gave an impassioned speech on the floor of the Senate this morning. Rather than rely on the biased Milwaukee Journal Sentinel coverage that only focused on a few seconds of her testimony that lasted over 10 minutes, I urge you to watch her testimony in its entirety that begins about 21:35 in.

Bravo, Senator Lazich!
