Abortion extremism in Madison

My column for the Washington County Daily News is online and in print. Here’s a part:

In the same week that the United States Supreme Court heard arguments about a challenge to the Mississippi ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, Gov. Tony Evers wielded his veto pen to demonstrate just how radical abortion supporters have become. We have come a long way from the time when abortion supporters advocated that they be safe, legal, and rare.




One of the bills would have made it a crime for a doctor to withhold medical care from a baby who survived an abortion and was born alive. While very rare, it happens. It is more common than an infant dying of COVID. As I wrote above, to assign the beginning of a life at any point after conception is arbitrary, but as a society, we at least once agreed that children who were born were considered human and worthy of protection. There is no logical distinction in the rights of a baby born during a failed abortion and a baby born in other circumstances. It is a living, breathing, feeling baby. And there is no logical distinction between a doctor letting a baby die for lack of care and a parent doing the same thing. In vetoing this bill, Evers has sanctioned infanticide.


Another bill would have banned women from aborting their baby based on the baby’s sex, race, or national origin. It would have given the same protections against discrimination that our laws extend to the born. It is a logical extension of the recognition that unborn people have human rights too. In a logical extension of his unscientific opinion that unborn humans are not humans at all, Evers vetoed this bill too. In Evers’ Wisconsin, a woman may abort her child if she doesn’t want a girl or a brown son at her discretion. In-utero discrimination is the law of the land.


While I strongly advocate for the end of all abortions, at the very least, we should not be using abortion as a way to curate the population for favored races and sexes. We should also all be able to agree that once a baby is born, it deserves protection from being killed through intentional neglect. Unfortunately, there is no such agreement anymore.

    The positions that Evers took are not supported by many people at all.

    The heaviest support comes on the question of “life of the mother,” but the lying and fraud in the interpretation of that phrase is unbelievable.

    But then, lying and murder have always been bed-mates.

    “Unfortunately, there is no such agreement anymore.”

    If he just vetoed these bills that makes it a crime, then that means it is currently legal for a doctor to withhold care to an infant that lives through an abortion and is born? Where is the ‘anymore in that statement? Was that just mis-written or am I missing something there?

    “But then, lying and murder have always been bed-mates.”

    If I was ever going to sanction murder of babies, it would be the offspring of Lying and Murder as bed-mates.

    Sadly, many liberals favor killing innoSadlyn and minorities.
    In many liberal cities, murder is sky rocketing and the liberals don’t care.
    Kill innocent babies, even out of the womb? Hey, that’s not murder. That train of thought used to be favored by extremists like Obama and Feingold, but it is more accepted today.
    Kill a baby that can survive outside the womb, who cares according to current day liberals,
    Kill a baby in the womb because they are a man and a woman, might have a disability, no problem.
    And of course statistics show most babies aborted are minority, by rate,, which isn’t surprising since the founder of Planned Parenthood was an avowed racist.
    Killing in the streets by minorities, the modern day liberal doesn’t care or might even support it.

    But it seems like some members of the media are now saying that that the unborn baby is actually a baby and not a clump of cells.
    This is from Fox 10 in Phoenix: “A pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed in a crash involving a suspected drunk driver on Dec. 5 in Chandler.”
    There are more examples of this elsewhere in the mefia.

    “And of course statistics show most babies aborted are minority, by rate,, which isn’t surprising since the founder of Planned Parenthood was an avowed racist.”

    Avowed believer in Eugenics is what you should say. The founder of planned parenthood would have happily sterilized every minority that entered PP.
