Wisconsin Gov Will Veto Bill Stopping Infanticide, Protecting Newborns “Not a Productive Use of Time”

Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers vowed Monday to veto the state’s born-alive bill mandating doctors provide care to infants who survive abortion procedures, calling the legislation redundant.

“We have all sorts of issues to deal with in the state of Wisconsin and to pass a bill that is redundant seems to be not a productive use of time,” Evers said in a Monday interview, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “And clearly I ran on the belief — and I still believe — that women should be able to make choices about their health care. But this deals with a specific issue that’s already been resolved,” Evers added.

The proposed bill requires doctors to “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care provider would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age,” according to the legislation. A doctor must ensure that a child born alive is immediately taken and admitted to the hospital, under the proposal.

Physicians who violate the law face fines up to $10,000 and a maximum of six years in prison.

Republican lawmakers introduced the bill, AB179, on April 18. The legislation hasn’t been voted on by legislative committees, according to The Hill.

Democratic North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed SB359, or the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” on April 18. The bill sought to explicitly direct physicians to provide care for infants who survive abortion procedures.

U.S. District Judge William Osteen recently struck down a North Carolina ban on abortions after 20 weeks. Legal abortions in the state may occur to the point of viability as determined by a presiding physician under Osteen’s ruling.

Senate Democrats also blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in February, which would have required doctors to provide medical care to babies who are born alive after an abortion procedure.

Democratic Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly on Monday also vetoed a bill that would have required doctors to tell women seeking abortions about an abortion reversal pill, The Chicago Tribune reported. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists maintains there is no medically accepted evidence saying “abortion reversal” is legitimate.

A number of states including Arkansas, North Dakota, Iowa, Mississippi and Kentucky have proposed or enacted laws outlawing abortion in the presence of a fetal heartbeat. Most of the bans have remained ineffective due to court orders prohibiting enforcement.

Evers did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment in time for publication.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
