Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has proclaimed today as "Protect Life Day" in Wisconsin, however, the official proclamation first appeared on a Catholic conservative blog and is not available on any official Wisconsin state government website.

Heather DuBois Bourenane, a progressive blogger from Sun Prairie, e-mailed Governor Walker himself about the anti-choice proclamation, and, according to Bourenane, Walker's gubernatorial office told her that he did, in fact, sign an official proclamation designating today "Protect Life Day" in Wisconsin. Bourenane is in the process of contacting mainstream media outlets in Wisconsin, however, the sentencing of former Walker aide Tim Russell for stealing from veterans' groups is certainly going to be the big anti-Walker story on the local news in Wisconsin tonight, so they probably will not cover this.

Call Governor Walker's office at (608) 266-1212, or e-mail Governor Walker's office at, and demand him to explain why he would sign an anti-abortion proclamation without wanting Wisconsinites to know that he did so.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
