Ron Lowe: Walker not presidential material

Republican presidential hopeful, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, is an anti-abortion extremist. With Madison, I’ve always considered Wisconsin a liberal state; where did he get the votes to become governor?

Last week, Gov. Walker signed a bill that outlaws non-emergency abortions at or beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy. Walker’s record also includes defunding Planned Parenthood, requiring doctors to have abortion privileges at nearby hospitals (now blocked by a federal court order), and requiring women to have and see ultrasounds. Walker sounds dictatorial, not the type of person to be president of the United States.

In an effort to win votes of the extreme base of the Republican Party, Walker has traded the health and well-being of women to score cheap political points.
