Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are hell bent for leather to make sure that women are unable to get a perfectly legal abortion after 20 weeks — no matter if they have been raped or are a victim of incest — and Gov. Scott Walker is standing by and more than willing to help handcuff the doctors and have them hauled away.
A bill before the Wisconsin legislature would make it illegal for anyone who performs or attempts to perform an abortion after 20 weeks subject to three and a half years in prison, in addition to a $10,000 fine.
Anti-choice Republicans are pushing the bill through — assigning it more importance than working on the budget — and, according to Rep. Jesse Kremer (R), Gov. Walker is fired up to sign it. As for instances of rape and incest: too bad, victims. Jesse Kremer and Scott Walker are only looking out for your best interests.
Kremer used what could be charitably called an “unfortunate” term, when talking about allowing an exception.
“As a husband, father and EMT, I feel absolutely terrible for a woman who’s involved in one of those heinous crimes,” Kremer said. “However, that does not mean we should put carve-outs in this bill that would essentially double down on that awful situation and selectively decide which children should and should not be inhumanely tortured to death by tearing them apart, limb from limb.”
