It gets even better

God, Scott Walker is really scum:

A Wisconsin abortion bill supported by Gov. Scott Walker (R) would allow a father who disagrees with the abortion to sue the physician for “emotional and psychological distress,” the Huffington Post reported on Wednesday.

The bill, which bans abortions 20 weeks after fertilization or in the 22nd week of pregnancy, would reportedly allow the father of the unborn child to sue, regardless of whether he has a relationship with the woman having the abortion.

If the physician gives or tries to give an abortion after the 20-week mark, the father would be able to sue for damages, which include “personal injury and emotional and psychological distress,” according to HuffPo. The site reported that the right would be provided to the father so long as the pregnancy was not the result of rape or incest.

The bill would also allow the mother to sue the doctor, according to the Huffington Post.

One thought on “It gets even better

  1. So why would any other medical procedure performed on someone other than yourself not be the same. If you object to your spouse getting plastic surgery, elective mastectomy or vasectomy – whatever – wouldn’t this law lay the groundwork so that anyone could sue a medical practitioner for just about anything done to anyone?

    The lengths these whackos will go to control women is reprehensible.
