Up until recently, Scott Walker has enjoyed a robust presence in the presidential race, even though he hasn’t declared yet. He’s playing very coy about his views, trying to remain the least controversial choice. A Serious Contender. No more:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker defended his decision to sign a law in Wisconsin mandating ultrasounds for women before they get abortions, calling ultrasounds “just a cool thing out there.”
In an interview on “The Dana Show,” the Wisconsin Republican and 2016 presidential hopeful boasted to host Dana Loesch, “We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea.”
Defending the legislation against what he called the “gotcha” media, Walker said, “Most people I talk to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time who’ll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It’s just a cool thing out there.”
Guilting women into an unwanted pregnancy is “a cool thing”. That is, if you can find a doctor to violate your reproductive rights in Wisconsin. This will not play with moderates. I want to know-how can Scott Walker be a contender for president when he is ruining his home state? Is the plan to fuck the state dry and then move on to destroying the federal government? Methinks so.
