On Friday, Democrat Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers vetoed five pro-life bills passed by the state’s conservative-majority legislature. 

The Star Tribune reports:

Evers, who is making his support for abortion rights a key plank of his 2022 reelection campaign, had been widely expected to veto the measures the GOP-controlled Legislature passed in October.

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again today: as long as I’m governor, I will veto any legislation that turns back the clock on reproductive rights in this state — and that’s a promise,” Evers tweeted in announcing the vetoes.

Republicans do not have enough votes in the Legislature to override the vetoes. Republican legislative leaders did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

One bill, which Evers also vetoed in 2019, would impose criminal penalties on doctors who fail to give medical care in the extremely rare circumstance in which a baby is born alive following an abortion attempt. Violators would be guilty of a felony punishable by up to six years in prison.

“Killing an unborn baby because of their sex, race or disability is not health care,” said Republican Sen. Julian Bradley in a statement. “This is a radical, pro-discrimination veto from Governor Evers. Wisconsinites deserve to know life is valued whether they are a man or woman, white or black, or have a disability.”

A conspiracy that is not a theory but ongoing and predictable. Globally, you no longer have to invade a country with military soldiers. Consider travelers and cultures. From experience and study, travelers into our country permanently who do not speak our English language, first and second generational offspring do not abort their babies. Babies are not a burden and only another place at the family table. Muslims do not abort their babies, no burden … a place at the family table.
Eventually there will be so few of our generations who pioneered this country and so few black families and no invitation to the family’s table.

The choice is made before having sex, not after.
