  •  She is Pro-Choice (0+ / 0-)

    I asked her about this directly and also did some research.  The accusation that she is "not pro-choice" is based on a single vote she took on a pharmacy conscience clause.  Her vote was based on technical reasons related to provisions in the Wisconsin state constitution.  The matter was settled the next year to everyone's mutual satisfaction (or at least everyone who favors access women's health services).

    This one vote was taken out of context in order to slime her.  I'll let others speculate on where the slime originated.

    •  That's not true at all. (0+ / 0-)

      She has a long anti-choice record. She killed a bill repealing the criminal abortion ban and served on the board of Democrats for Life. She opposed the appointment of two qualified doctors to the state medical board because they supported performing abortions at the UW Hospital, and she couldn't even bring herself to support a non-binding resolution honoring Planned Parenthood.
