I thought Planned Parenthood Advocates must be exaggerating when they described Pro-Life Wisconsin, which just made a dual endorsement of Scott Walker and Mark Neumann for governor, as opposing not only all abortion but virtually all birth control, too.
But that's actually the case. Pro-Life Wisconsin is as extreme as it gets when it comes to the issue of women's reproductive rights -- or men's, too, for that matter:
Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund supports candidates for public office who demonstrate a commitment to protect each and every innocent human life – in all circumstances and at all stages of development. To be “100% pro-life” is to know that a human life begins at fertilization and that there may never be a legal exception to an innocent child’s inalienable right to life.
That means the group supports a law that would require a 14-year-old girl, raped and impregnated by a relative, to carry a child to term and give birth -- even if it meant the teenager would die.
Think that's extreme, to not even allow exceptions for rape, incest, or to save a woman's life? There's more.
Because hormonal birth control can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the wall of the uterus (hence the name "contraception",preventing conception), the group believes the pill, patch, shot, ring, all cause abortions.
The group's legislative director, testifying at a hearing on the Compassionate Care for Rape Victims Act, actually said they oppose condoms or diaphragms use as well. They oppose contraception. Period.
And Walker and Neumann sought and have accepted their support.
Wow! What more is there to say?
