Evers fundraises on abortion fears

Empower Wisconsin  | May 11, 2022

MADISON — Surprise, surprise. Gov. Tony Evers’ campaign is raising money on fears that abortion may soon no longer be federally protected in America.

The liberal’s election campaign — Tony for Wisconsin — dashed out a Reproductive Freedom Survey not long after Politico published the leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft ruling that, as it stands, would overturn the constitutionally suspect Roe v. Wade.

“Should Wisconsin overturn the laws in place to ban abortion access if Roe V Wade was overturned?”  the survey asks.

Actually, the law in place predates the 1973 Supreme Court decision (not a law) legalizing abortion nationwide. It prohibits abortion in most cases, penalizing physicians and others who perform the procedure, not the women who get an abortion. Roe v. Wade superseded Wisconsin’s law, but the long-standing statute would “spring back to life if the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ends federal protection of abortion.

But blue states across the country will still be free to provide abortion on demand, and will most likely do so.

The campaign survey, of course, seeks the participants’ name, email address, zip code and mobile phone number.

And then, “[BEFORE YOU GO]”, Tony for Wisconsin asks for cash for the Wisconsin left’s abortion champion. The re-election campaign seeks donations of $5, $10, $25 or “another amount.”

Evers’ campaign, like his radical left allies, is billing the Democrat as the last line of defense of abortion on demand in Wisconsin. And they’re hoping to raise a lot of money on that fear.

“It’s never been more important to have a Governor that supports access to quality, affordable healthcare and reproductive rights. With Tony’s opponent on the air attacking him with dishonest attacks he needs your help,” the appeal states, without identifying the opponent or specifying the “dishonest attacks.”

Democrats raised $12 million in the first two days after the publication of the draft opinion, according to The Hill.
