The Magic Vanishing Law: You'll Pay for Abortions in Wisconsin


Legislation introduced/sponsored by these folks:

Senators Zipperer, Leibham, Cowles, Galloway, Hopper, Kapanke, Kedzie, Lazich, Moulton and Wanggaard, cosponsored by Representatives Vos, Jacque, Ballweg, Brooks, Endsley, Farrow, Honadel, Kapenga, Kerkman, Kestell, Kleefisch, Kooyenga, Kuglitsch, LeMahieu, Nass, Nygren, A. Ott, J. Ott, Petersen, Pridemore, Severson, Spanbauer, Steineke, Thiesfeldt, Van Roy, Weininger, Williams, Wynn and Ziegelbauer.

PURPORTS to prohibit State taxpayers from funding abortions.

But in reality, it's Barbara Bush-Approved Vanishing Law.

This funding prohibition does not apply in the following circumstances: 1) the abortion is directly and medically necessary to save the life of the woman and a physician so certifies; 2) the abortion is performed in the case of sexual assault or incest, a physician so certifies, and the sexual assault or incest is reported to law enforcement; and 3) due to a preexisting medical condition, the abortion is directly and medically necessary to prevent grave, long-lasting physical health damage to the woman and a physician so certifies.

As Badger notes:

A direct abortion is never "medically necessary"; the "rape/incest" exception does not belong here, as the question is WHO PAYS, not WHO DID IT; and the "necessary to prevent...." language is designed to ensure abortion for any reason, at any time, for anybody.

But every one of those 'sponsors/co-sponsors' will tell you that they passed a law which "prevents" taxpayers from funding abortions in Wisconsin.

Psalm 139:13-16

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed and in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

Abortion -- the great “no”

Unlike the rest of creation, we are capable of a personal relationship with God. Not only did God create us, but created us according to a plan devised from all eternity. No matter how far back we go in our imagination, there was never a time when God did not know each of us, in every detail of our being. There was not a particular time when God decided to make us. The decision to make us has been in the mind of God from all eternity. He decided to make us for as long as He has been God. All our days were written in His book. To dare to say that a human being, developing in the womb, should not be born is as wrong as to say that a born person should not continue to grow and live. In each case, an attack on human life is an attack on the God who formed and made us. Jesus Christ is the great “Yes” to the promises of God; abortion is the great “No.”

To assert that the unborn are not human is to ignore indisputable evidence and is a classic manifestation of the oppression and exploitation of people. When people challenge us to prove that the unborn are human, they should be challenged, in turn, to prove that they are human! All the scientific evidence that proves born persons are human also proves the unborn to be human.

Lord, I pray today for every unborn child. The beauty of the bodies and souls of these children flows from your hands and your eternal plan. Awaken in every human conscience a profound reverence for human life, and grant us grace to defend our smallest and most defenseless brothers and sisters, those still being formed in the secret places of their mothers’ womb.

I think certain institutions in the state can be thanked for influencing this one.
