Planned Parenthood and abortion activists took over the Wisconsin state Capitol building on Wednesday, as the GOP was set to uphold a pro-life law that will take effect if the Roe v. Wade decision is overturned.

Governor Tony Evers (D-WI) signed an executive order this month calling for the special session to repeal a 173 year-old ban on abortion, The Cap Times reported, noting, “While the governor has the authority to call lawmakers into a special session, lawmakers are not obligated to take action on any bills.”

“Whose choice? Our choice!” dozens, if not hundreds of protesters chanted inside the Capitol rotunda, protesting the GOP’s expected refusal to overturn the ban. “If we don’t get it, shut it down! If we don’t get it, shut it down! If we don’t get it, shut it down!”

“The people of Wisconsin support access to abortion! Our legislators need to listen and pass the Abortion Rights Preservation Act!” Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin tweeted Wednesday, promoting video of the protest.

Many protesters were wearing Planned Parenthood gear and sporting the abortion provider’s signs.


Conservative Jack Posobiec referred to the protesters as “insurrectionists,” a term used to describe Trump supporters who breached the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, to protest the 2020 general election.

“Planned Parenthood insurrectionists scream inside Wisconsin state capital as GOP upholds 173 year-old law criminalizing abortion,” Posobiec captioned video of the protest.

The Cap Times’ Jessie Opoien covered the protest in-person and referred to the protesters as “Planned Parenthood/abortion access supporters.”

Despite pressure from loud protesters inside the Capitol, the Republicans in the Senate and Assembly quickly gaveled in and out of Evers’ special session without taking votes to repeal the state’s abortion ban.

CBS 58 News reporter Emilee Fannon posted video from the quick sessions, noting, “Republicans [sic] inaction means if Roe is overturned, nearly all abortions will become illegal in Wisconsin.”

Since a draft opinion regarding Roe v. Wade was leaked in May, sometimes-violent pro-abortion activism has exploded across the country.

The Daily Wire learned last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is “investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country.”

“The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities,” the bureau told The Daily Wire. “We would like to remind members of the public that if they observe anything suspicious or have information about potential threats to report it to law enforcement immediately, call their local FBI field office, or submit a tip to”
