While Wisconsin Families Celebrate our Nation's Independence, Walker Signs Attack on Women
MADISON - Today, Governor Walker signed a bill forcing women to undergo unnecessary, invasive ultrasounds before receiving a safe and legal abortion.
Following the Governor's signature, Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson commented, "The Governor is admitting he knows how extreme this bill is with his decision to sign it the Friday after the 4th of July. Many Wisconsin families are still enjoying their families over Independence weekend and would be shocked to find out Walker is spending his day signing a divisive law that requires women to undergo an unnecessary, invasive procedure to appease another extreme special interest. Women should be trusted to make their own decisions; not insulted by yet another extreme law pushed by Republicans in Wisconsin."
