Scott Walker Would Rather a Woman Die Than Have an Abortion That Could Save Her: It’s True
MARK KARLIN, EDITOR OF BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes a woman who has been raped and will die in childbirth should not be allowed to live, even if an abortion would save her life.
That’s right, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Political Fact “truth-o-meter”* confirms that Walker “‘wants to make abortion illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother.’ Walker acknowledges that is his position.”
When Walker was running for governor, his opponent charged that Walker would seek an abortion ban without exception. Walker’s campaign confirmed to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that this would indeed make it illegal for victims of rape or incest or those whose lives were imperiled to end a pregnancy.
