Scott Walker Promises to Fight for Unborn Children


Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker sent a letter to the Susan B. Anthony List stating that he will sign a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks. The bill is currently being considered in the legislature. In a nod to a probable Presidential run, Walker stated that he would support pro-life legislation at the federal level.


“Life is a value I learned from my parents, and it’s a value I have cherished every day, predating my time in politics. My policies throughout my career have earned a 100% rating with pro-life groups in Wisconsin. Just in my first term I signed numerous pieces of pro-life legislation and I will continue working for every life.

In my past four years as governor, we have made substantial progress in the fight for our pro-life values in Wisconsin. We defunded Planned Parenthood. We prohibited abortion from being covered by health plans in a health exchange. We passed legislation assuring the women and their unborn child are better protected under law – through placing stringent requirements on medical professionals and requiring the provision of thorough and vital information to the mother.

As the Wisconsin legislature moves forward in the coming session, further protections for mother and child are likely to come to my desk in the form of a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. I will sign that bill when it gets to my desk and support similar legislation on the federal level.

I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it.”

It is important to many Republican primary voters to have a Presidential nominee who is pro life. Walker has re-affirmed his stance on life. This can be viewed as an important step towards the launching of a national campaign.

Many pro-lifers are feeling cheated by Representative Renee Ellmers who campaigned as a pro-lifer but then killed a bill that would ban abortions at 20 weeks. Walker’s proactive letter reaffirming his commitment to the unborn could further ingratiate himself with pro-life voters who feel betrayed by Ellmers.
