When Gov. Scott Walker announced this month that he would sign a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin pounced:

“In his four years as governor,” the group said in a news release, “Walker has made substantial progress in his fight against women.” Board member Eliza Cussen is quoted calling Walker “anti-woman,” then without a shred of self-awareness complains, “This guy isn’t subtle.”

In case you didn’t catch NARAL’s feathery soft, nuanced approach to Walker, the group thinks the Wisconsin governor has a record of “derailing women’s health services.” Certainly, the idea that abortion is a “women’s issue” has become almost as culturally ubiquitous as Pharrell’s song “Happy.” And equally as odious.
