Gov. Evers: Saying Abortionists “Execute Babies” Is “Blasphemy”

MacIver News Service | May 1, 2019

MILWAUKEE – Gov. Evers’ remarks at the Milwaukee Press Club are getting a lot attention today. Republicans describe killing an infant after a botched abortion as “executing babies.” The Wisconsin left and their allies in the media were quick to criticize the characterization after President Trump repeated it at a campaign rally Saturday in Green Bay. And at Tuesday’s Press Club event, Evers said calling infanticide an execution is “blasphemy.” He repeated his vow to veto the Republican “Born Alive” bill that would make infanticide a specific crime in Wisconsin.
