During an interview with conservative radio host Dana Loesch this Friday, Wisconsin governor and potential GOP contender for 2016, Scott Walker, said that the bill he signed which requires women seeking an abortion to first have a medically unnecessary ultrasound is a “lovely” and “cool thing.”
Walker complained that criticism he received about the bill was merely an attack from the “gotcha” media, and that he was only trying to provide women with something that would enhance their pregnancy experience.
“The thing about that — the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea,” Walker said. “Most people I talked to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time that pull out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, we still have their first ultrasounds. It’s just a cool thing out there.”
“We just knew if we signed that law, if we provided the information that more people if they saw that unborn child would make a decision to protect and keep the life of that unborn child,” he added.
