Were Scott Walker's abortion laws created to protect women’s safety and health? Didn’t think so….
Not only that, Scott Walker and AG lapdog Brad Schimel got that whole constitutional rights to choose thing wrong:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal from Wisconsin of a federal appeals court ruling that struck down the state’s law placing restrictions on abortion providers.
Watch the tantrum begin in the Republican legislature as they set out to prove how oppressive they can truly be when it comes to banning the constitutional right to choose. This is what we get for questioning their authority. WSJ:
1. State lawmakers pledged new abortion-related bills during the next legislative session.
2. State Attorney General Brad Schimel said said Monday’s ruling “is disappointing and undermines the respect due to policymakers.”
3. Walker on Tuesday tweeted, “We’re disappointed an activist court overturned common sense standards on abortion providers, (and) we will cont(inue) to protect sanctity of life.”
4. Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life, said the anti-abortion group remains “undeterred in our efforts to protect women and unborn children from the abortion industry.”
5. Rep. Jesse Kremer, R-Kewaskum, said he plans to propose a bill next legislative session requiring doctors to inform patients of the ability to reverse medication-induced abortions. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists urged its members in 2015 to pressure Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to veto a similar bill on the grounds that the medical advice is unscientific and could be dangerous.
6. And Rep. Andre Jacque, R-De Pere, who authored the bill that included the abortion restrictions that Tuesday’s decision invalidated, said he plans to introduce again legislation that bans research using fetal tissue, which was unsuccessful last Legislative session.
7. Myranda Tanck, spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, said in an email that Fitzgerald fully expects to see bills related to abortion next legislative session.
