Dem Legislator Shows Wisconsin Catholic Conference the Right Path

This is almost from Ripley's "Believe It or Not" ...

Senate Democrats proposed a bill that would force all licensed Wisconsin pharmacists, regardless of their medical and moral judgment, to dispense the morning-after pill and other FDA-approved abortifacient contraceptive drugs. The legislation also redefines the statutory definition of abortion to exclude all FDA-approved contraceptive drugs and devices.

A hearing was held in the Senate Health Committee this week, and Senate Democrats didn’t count on amendments from one of their own members, Senator Kathleen Vinehout (D-Alma), amendments that dramatically altered the bill.

In complete disbelief and horror, Democrat Senators John Erpenbach and Lena Taylor tore into Vinehout at the hearing, badgering her over and over. To her credit, Vinehout stood her ground and principles. Vinehout voted with the three Republicans on the committee.

Naturally, Planned Parenthood's Liars went into full spittle-flecked attack mode.

Ms. Vinehout has obviously read and digested the latest medical information about "Plan B," the 'contraceptive' in question. All she did was 1) insert a "conscience clause" in the bill, and 2) make certain that abortifacients like "Plan B" are defined correctly in Wisconsin law.

These actions demonstrate far more courage than that shown by Abp. Timothy Dolan, who literally abandoned MD's, nurses, and hospitals to the tender mercies of Planned Barrenhood's "rights" lawyers in a companion-piece proposal, AB377.

Kudos to Ms. Vinehout!!

And when Sen. Robson proposed a substitute amendment to undo Vinehout's changes, who voted to toss out Vinehout's courage?

Sen. Darling. The very same senator who has the nerve to beg conservatives and the prolife folks for money to help her get reelected.

Screw you Sen. Darling.
