Governor Walker Throws Women Under the Bus to Iowa
Governor Walker puts presidential ambitions ahead of women’s health and safety
“Today, Governor Walker threw women squarely under the bus to Iowa, signing a dangerous and cruel abortion ban into law to further his case with right-wing voters on the campaign trail.
Abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy are rare and often involve serious complications that threaten the life or health of a woman or severe fetal abnormalities that cannot be detected before the 20th week. It is unconscionable that Walker is taking medical choices away from women facing the most tragic circumstances.
It crystal clear: Democrats believe personal medical decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor without interference from politicians, while Republicans will go to great lengths to take away our liberty to make personal medical decisions privately.
Signing this blatantly unconstitutional abortion ban is yet another attempt by our Governor to cement votes from the far right in a presidential primary. It bears repeating: Governor Walker has thrown women squarely under the bus to Iowa. I urge the Governor and legislative Republicans to stop playing politics with women’s health and safety.”
