Scott Walker wades into the abortion issue, proclaims “Protect Life Day” in Wisconsin
Well, so much for the talk about Scott Walker not wanting to wade into sensitive social issues such as abortion…Walker just waded into the abortion issue with an official proclamation.
On the 40th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision, Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker proclaimed January 22, 2013 as “Protect Life Day” in the State of Wisconsin. Walker is politically opposed to women having the right to choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy, even if the woman was raped or subjected to incest. Walker’s views on abortion are exactly the same as, if not more extreme than, those of Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock, who, while campaigning for a U.S. Senate seat in Indiana, said at a debate that he believed that pregnancies resulting from rape were “something God intended to happen.”
Scott Walker doesn’t like to talk about social issues, and there’s a reason for that. He is the governor of a state that twice gave Barack Obama, who is an ardent supporter of women’s reproductive rights, its presidential electoral votes.
As the 40th Anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that gave women the right to make their own decisions about their reproductive health approaches, Scott Walker proved once again that he doesn’t care about Wisconsin women.
