Scott Walker doubled down on his anti-choice agenda yesterday, saying he would support the 20 week abortion ban introduced by Republicans in the Wisconsin state legislature. Walker is in favor of extreme policies when it comes to a woman’s right to choose, opposing abortion even in cases of rape, incest or to protect the mother’s life. The governor also supports personhood which could restrict women’s access to birth control and hurts families trying to conceive through nontraditional methods like In Vitro fertilization.
