Update: You just can't make this stuff up. Check out the latest suggestion the organizers have for today's participants:
For best effect, wear shorts, capris, or a dress so that it looks like you're naked under your hospital gown. If you want to bring props to this exciting edition of political theater, I recommend implements of women's health in order to consult with the governor, such as a box of (unused) tampons, a bottle of Midol, or something like that. Also, start thinking now about the fictitious health problem you'd like to put on your appointment request slip.
It's becoming more apparent pro-abortion advocacy and socialism are as compatible as peanut butter and jelly.
When Katie attended the National Organization for Women conference two years ago, she found that the "women's right group" was selling socialist and Marxist books like The Communist Manifesto. Now, news out of Wisconsin suggests this relationship is stronger than ever.
In an attempt to protest the recent 20-week abortion ban that passed in the State Senate, the Wisconsin's NOW chapter is leading other pro-abortion activists to the state Capitol today with their chants, signs, and interesting wardrobe choices to try and stop the legislation. More information from the event Facebook page:
Last Tuesday, a deplorable 20-week abortion ban passed the Wisconsin State Senate. Governor Walker has already promised to sign the bill once it makes it through the Assembly. We know his style - he'll wait until a holiday weekend or some other event overshadows his involvement in one of the worst abortion bans in the country. So let's put the spotlight on him now.
We'll be meeting at the Capitol in paper hospital gowns for a march to the governor's office. If he's willing to play the women's health expert, we're going to demand treatment - or demand that he stop making medical decisions for Wisconsin families.
And we won't be letting up anytime soon. He might think he can launch a presidential campaign on the backs of Wisconsin women and workers, but we're not going anywhere and we won't let his record on women's health escape him.
Once you're done rolling your eyes at the tired attacks against pro-life Governor Scott Walker, focus for a minute on the fact that Wisconsin NOW is partnering with International Socialist Organization - Madison for the rally. This relationship apparently goes way back. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was even described by the New York Times as "an active worker for the Socialist Party." Socialism's laser focus on the economy suggests that it supports access to abortion because it paves the way for low-income women to have the procedure.
Chelsea Shields, who is the Legislative Director for Wisconsin Right to Life, responded to the event.
"The fact that these groups are working together demonstrates just how radical it is to defend abortions on unborn babies who can feel pain," she told Townhall.
A 2013 survey from The Polling Company revealed that a majority of Americans, 64 percent, support the Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. It seems, therefore, that most of the country considers the protection of life more important than income equality.
When it comes to abortion, unborn babies are treated as non-human, mere masses of cells. So much for equality.
