The Thin Mints are as good as an orgasm! I take in a lot less sugar these days but that article makes me want to run out and buy several boxes. I think it would be pretty funny if this didn't back fire into greatly increased sales! After all the Boy Scout motto is: Get Ready! The Girl Scout motto is:Be Prepared!...

The reporter points out that their arguments are bullshit:
Told of this, Peggy Hamill, Pro-Life Wisconsin's state director, said "our concerns still stand."

because their 'concerns' having nothing to do with reality.

The Wisconsin State Journal has been know to talk to Planned Parenthood, and even quote their members verbatim. Shouldn't Pro-Life Wisconsin be boycotting the WSJ?

RE: an earlier comment by jman with quotes from Walker about how he doesn't believe that this is an issue for "the women he talks to in his state"......

Apparently, he also doesn't think equal marriage rights are an issue either because he believes that no one in Wisconsin talks about it. At least, he doesn't hear about it anyway.

Does anyone have a photo of Scooter with his fingers in his ears saying nah, nah, nah, I can't hear you.....

You have to talk to people that disagree with you if you want a differing view point.

Attorney General Van Hollen is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the injunction against enforcing the law requiring admitting privileges.

U.S. District Judge William Conley issued a preliminary injunction blocking the law from taking effect while he weighs the case. A federal appeals court upheld the injunction in December.

DOJ, which is controlled by Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to review the appellate decision and put the law into effect.

One Wisconsin abortion restriction was just declared unconstitutional in federal court. Meaning that our state Supreme Court won't have a say in it, although it can be appealed to the federal appellate level.

You may remember another tactic the Walker administration is using against providers of reproductive services.
Last August, a Wisconsin state agency told two family-planning organizations that they owed a total of $3.5 million because they had overbilled Medicaid programs for prescription drugs and certain services.

Well, oops, that wasn't quite accurate.
Last week, the agency — the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Health Services — lowered the amount by more than $3.2 million.

How did they explain this massive fuckup?
White wrote that his office became aware from the clinics' response that "employees of this department had given verbal instructions to a small subset" of providers on billing for prescription drugs.

But Diane Welsh, a lawyer with von Briesen & Roper s.c., who represents the family-planning clinics, said the reimbursement rates were published and were consistent with what the clinics were paid.


Apparently they just decided to send threatening letters that contradicted published values just to see if they could get away with bullying family planning clinics. And now that they've been called on, they're hiding behind email.
The Department of Health Services would not make White or anyone else in the department available for interviews this week, and White did not return phone calls. The department would only answer questions via email.
...
One other aspect of White's letter annoyed Waloway.

"No apology whatsoever," she said.

There is little evidence that a fetus at 20 weeks can feel pain. Also, given that abortion and circumcision are entirely different subjects, your question is rather non sequitor, no?

Also, the State really wants to talk you out of exercising your constitutionally protected rights.

Experts: Federal trial court would likely strike down abortion bill

"Whether the Supreme Court might eventually be persuaded to change its interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment to permit states to override a woman's decision a month earlier than 24 weeks, before the fetus is capable of surviving outside the womb, is hard to predict, but no lower court is free to make that change on its own, and neither a state Legislature nor a state's chief executive is free to do so either," said Laurence Tribe, a professor at Harvard Law School for nearly a half century.

If federal courts strike down the measure, Wisconsin taxpayers would almost surely be on the hook for the legal fees of those bringing the challenge. That could easily stretch into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.


Looks like the Republicans in state government are going to waste more taxpayer money on this futile gesture.
