Another abortion activist is coming under fire for comparing killing babies in abortions to a legitimate medical procedure.

Tony Evers, the Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee running against pro-life Governor Scott Walker, compared abortions to tonsillectomies while pushing for taxpayer-financed abortions.

As the Weekly Standard reports:

Evers told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that “pro-life Democrats are welcome in the party, and I respect their decisions on this issue.”

Evers then proceeded to compare abortions to tonsillectomies while advocating for unlimited taxpayer funding of elective abortion under Medicaid.

“We need to have the Medicaid money be available for all people and restricting it because of a certain procedure, whether it’s a tonsillectomy or any other procedure, seems to me a foolhardy thing to do,” Evers told me.

Evers is currently locked in a close race with Governor Scott Walker, but his advocacy of unlimited taxpayer funding of abortion under Medicaid and his callous rhetoric comparing abortions to tonsillectomies could make it difficult for Evers to win over some undecided voters.

Earlier this year, Walker signed into law a bill to ban taxpayer funding of abortions. Walker has been a pro-life champion as governor and has signed numerous pieces of pro-life legislation. The latest measure would ensure that taxpayers in Wisconsin are not forced to fund abortions on babies of state employees.
