The Wisconsin legislature on Friday approved a “right-to-work” bill that will bar unions from requiring workers to join or pay union fees. The measure, which passed the state legislature by a 62-35 vote after an all-night debate, will now go to Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s desk for approval.
The anti-choice action group attempts to mobilize Wisconsin voters before the June 5th recall.
In a recall election that it likely to come down to who can better turn out voters, Wisconsin Right To Life plans to motivate “tens of thousands of right-to-life supporters” to vote for Walker.
With Tom Barrett winning the primary, the Wisconsin battle will be between two old foes.
Anti-choice advocates are anxiously supporting Governor Scott Walker, saying birth control and abortion may lie in the balance.
Beyond union busting, Walker now moves to eliminate access to contraception for low-income women and a return to allowing insurance companies to deny coverage for contraceptive supplies.
