Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Vetoes Five Pro-life Bills, Including One Protecting Babies that Survive Abortion

Bridget Sielicki : Dec 7, 2021  Live Action News

"Killing an unborn baby because of their sex, race or disability is not health care. 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." -Senator Julian Bradley

"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," he tweeted.

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke expressed his dismay at the veto. "Governor Evers made his position clear today that a life not wanted is a life worth wasting,"  he said in a statement. "Despite our governor's radical ideologies, I will never stop fighting against this injustice to protect those who cannot protect themselves."

The legislation that Evers overturned includes:

• A born-alive bill that would require medical professionals to provide life-saving care to infants who survive an abortion
• A bill that would prohibit discriminatory abortions based on the preborn child's race, sex, or national origin
• A bill that would require doctors to give information to parents whose preborn children test positive for a congenital condition
• A bill that would require that doctors give women information about the abortion pill reversal process if they receive a chemical abortion
• A bill that would reduce state funding for abortion facilities by prohibiting them from registering as a provider under Medicaid

This marks the second time that the Republican legislature has pushed through pro-life laws only for Evers to veto them. In 2019, he also vetoed four bills meant to implement abortion restrictions, including similar legislation aimed at protecting infants born alive after an attempted abortion. Abortion proponents claim that this is a very rare occurrence, but as Live Action News has previously reported, infants have survived abortions and there is currently no legal penalty for doctors who leave these children to die.

Senator Julian Bradley spoke out against the veto of the anti-discrimination bill. "Killing an unborn baby because of their sex, race or disability is not health care," he said 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."

According to NBC News, Republicans do not have enough of a majority in the state legislature to override the veto. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
