In 2011, when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel asked Walker to confirm that he “oppose[s] abortion even in cases of rape and incest,” Walker replied with a resounding “that’s correct.” Then Walker was asked: “As governor you will push hard for laws to curb abortion, how hard will you work on that issue?”
Walker’s response: “Well I’m pro-life… I’m pro-life across the board.” Followed by a litany of examples of anti-women’s health legislation he has supported throughout his career.
So what’s changed? Nothing other than Walker’s ever dimming re-election prospects. Now, in his too-close-to-call fight for his political future, Walker is now trying to have his cake and eat it too, but voters will easily see through his charade.
