One Comment to “On women’s reproductive rights, Scott Walker is pro-death”

  • Walker is not alone! Every Republican governor is trying to destroy a woman’s right to choose and limit access to contraception. Maybe next, they will try to take away our right to vote! After all, the right to vote (by women) was not specifically spelled out in the original Constitution. Either that or they will blame it on the current fiscal crisis!
