Pro-lifers await excuses from pro-abortion governor

pregnancy ultrasoundWisconsin’s pro-abortion governor is expected to veto several pro-life bills and a pro-life group is anxious to hear his reasoning.

"He is simply following his party line," Kristen Nupson, legislative director at Wisconsin Right to Life, says of first-term Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat.

“We hear opponents of these bills saying we're restricting women's health care and access to abortion,” Nupson says, “when in fact not a single one of these bills actually restrict a woman's access to abortion."

One bill, for example, is the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. It requires a baby that survives an abortion attempt to be treated as any other baby, which pro-lifers contend is basic, humane treatment of a living human being.

21-week baby"That really has nothing to do with restricting access to ‘health care’ or a woman's access to abortion,” Nupson tells OneNewsNow, “but they're just kind of using those same talking points that the party has put out there."

Abortion supporters routinely claim the fetus is not human, just a glob of cells or “pregnancy tissue,” yet abortion survivors such as Gianna Jessen are speaking out about the issue.   

Another bill expected to be vetoed by Gov. Evers would ban abortions based on race, gender, or disability.

"We're kind of curious to see how he is going to justify that because he himself has promoted his administration as a pro-woman, pro-baby, pro-minority group governor," Nupson continues. "So we're confused as to how he's able to justify discriminating against those in the womb just because they're at a different stage of life."

Mifepristone (abortion pill)A third measure would require physicians provide information to women seeking chemical abortions, specifically that there is a drug capable of reversing the effects of the first pill before they take the second pill.

"This is just informed consent, empowering women with information,” Nupson says, “and the governor has also promised to veto that."

A pro-life rally is planned for June 20 in Madison, where GOP leadership will sign the pro-life bills before handing them off to the pro-abortion governor and his ink pen.

"We're just wanting to demonstrate for Gov. Evers that we are the people and we have a voice, and we are pro-life and we are pro-women, and these bills are worth his time,” she tells OneNewsNow.
