In an interview with conservative radio host Dana Loesch last week, Scott Walker defended his recent decision to sign a bill that requires women to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion. Walker praised the procedure of having a 10-inch rod probed into a woman’s vagina as “lovely” and “a cool thing.”
“The thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea,” the anti-choice governor said. “Most people I talked to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time that pull out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, we still have their first ultrasounds. It’s just a cool thing out there.”
But Walker revealed the real reason behind the mandatory law, and it’s not so you can have a blurry image of your future child for keepsake.
“We just knew if we signed that law,” the governor said, “if we provided the information that more people if they saw that unborn child would make a decision to protect and keep the life of that unborn child.”
