Pro-Life Victory – Scott Walker Defeats Pro-Abortion Recall
(LifeNews.com) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker survived a pro-abortion attempt to recall him and install him with pro-abortion Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, as the new governor for the Badger State.
With 59 percent of the precincts reporting, Walker captured 57 percent of the vote and Barrett 42 percent.
From the beginning, Planned Parenthood supported the recall effort. “Governor Walker has led the attack against women and women’s access to health care and information,” said Tanya Atkinson, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin. “As a health care provider serving almost 80,000 Wisconsin women last year, most of whom are at or below the federal poverty limit, our patients cannot afford three more years of Governor Walker.”
“This is such a tremendous victory for Wisconsin taxpayers,” said Ciara Matthews, Walker campaign communications director. “Today, Wisconsin voters have told the nation they stand with Governor Walker because he stands with them.”
