Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker yesterday signed legislation that would require women seeking abortions to obtain an ultrasound in order to help them make an informed decision. That move inspired comedian and Disney voice actress Sarah Silverman to express her desire to anally probe Walker whenever he himself needed help making an informed decision. That tweet was about as logically sound as it was classy, but it earned a retweet nonetheless from champion of (some) women’s rights, Colorado Rep. Joe Salazar.

Yes. Yes, he did.

Why, yes. Salazar, many will remember, is the Colorado Democrat who argued strenuously against allowing women the right to choose their own form of self-defense. As citizens of Colorado argued the merits of sweeping new gun control measures earlier this year, Salazar argued against concealed carry and in favor of alternatives like call boxes, rape whistles and campus “safe zones.” A ban on campus carry would preclude hysterical women from popping off rounds mistakenly in situations in which they wrongly assumed they might be in danger.

If Walker is hypothetically in danger of forced anal intrusion by Sarah Silverman, could he at least enjoy the benefit of a Joe Salazar rape kit, complete with whistle and ball-point pen? Salazar apologized “if” he offended anyone with his comments suggesting women couldn’t be trusted to recognize when they were in danger, and despite the patronizing attitude he apparently still fancies himself a champion of women’s rights.

No, but it would have been nice if screaming protesters chanting “Hail Satan” could have been on hand. It’s pro-choice tradition, you know.

Yes, Walker’s “private” signing of the bill is just another one of those tactics, like those sneaky “midnight votes” to restrict women’s rights. Of course, the only reason the Texas senate’s vote on S.B. 5 was held at midnight was because of Sen. Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster delaying it until then, but … midnight!

“Secret” votes in the dead of night? That’s like signing a bill in your office on a Friday after a public hearing and several readings and multiple votes on amendments over the course of a full month. Very sneaky.

Let’s get this straight, then. A man voting to restrict a woman’s right to defend herself with a firearm if she so chooses does not fall under the “war on women,” but requiring an abortion provider to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital does.

Many say Salazar has blocked them on Twitter rather than debate the finer points of the war on women, but he, Planned Parenthood and NARAL seems destined to be best friends forever.

    Pro abortion, pro rape, yet he’s for women’s rights???

    • Elaine

      I still don’t get how the men who want all these violent acts against women, are not considered the ones who are actually engaged in a war on women? They think it makes a promiscuous life easier for them, since they don’t have to take any responsibility for their part in the pregnancy. Just like a liberal. They don’t care if a women has to kill her own baby. Pro Life men are the responsible, caring ones.

    • trixiewoobeans

      He’s for the right- to- rape- and- abort women (for their own good, of course). It appears he’s including Governor Walker, too.

    • grais

      It’s hard to take seriously someone who thinks he knows what women’s rights are, yet applauds the idea of anally probing another man.

    • Damien Johnson

      Exactly! I am about to make this comment about me though but still-I support a woman giving natural birth to a child per how we’ve been surviving the past several million years, and somehow liberal women label me as a sexist who doesn’t care about women. But a man that supports an unnatural, man-made, invasive and barbaric procedure where a child gets his/her limbs ripped apart and sucked out of what’s supposed to be the safest place on Earth, is not considered a sexist?!

    AMAZING the things that these supposed “leaders” are writing in public. Didn’t one of these left wing-nuts call Justice Thomas an “Uncle Tom” last week? And now this fool? These are the “adults” in the room ?Our govt. has become a laughing stock ! And We, the People ALLOW it.

    Midnight votes? That’s how Obamacare was passed.

    • trixiewoobeans

      That took me aback, too! Oh, the irony! AND I GUARANTEE at least the Gov. read it before he signed it. Hmmm, maybe that’s why it was late! They actually READ IT before they passed it! This guy just hates women, period.

    I can’t get my brain to “reason” as brain-dead leftists try to reason. How is access to medical equipment and services and providing full information a violation of anyone’s rights?

    • NRPax

      I’ll take a shot at explaining it:

      All forms of birth control are to be delivered to the doorstep of the women requesting it, preferably by cute guys of their choice. Should they require an abortion, the state must provide a limousine with tinted windows that has a full selection of beverages and snacks. The abortion is to be done immediately, with all complications being discretely handled at someone else’s expense. Anything less than this is cause to think that “you hate women” and “you hate womens’ health.”

      • mike_in_kosovo

        Pretty much sums it up, yes…

    • trixiewoobeans

      I can’t think of any major medical procedure where this isn’t done. Not to do it is inviting a lawsuit! You can’t even get a prescription without pages of paperwork with “full information” on side effects, warnings, etc., I guess murder doesn’t qualify.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Liberals whine about the supposed necessity of separation of church and state, when what we really need is a separation of state and fetishes. Joe Salazar needs to keep his gay fantasies out of government.

    Does Salazar want to make it more difficult for woment to defend themselves against rape as a means of justifying Planned Parenthood?

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Rep. Joe Salazar @HouseSalazar

    @ExJon Actually not. At least we would hear what the democratically elected governor’s rationale was in signing.

    8:21 PM – 6 Jul 2013

    Passed with a vote of 56-39,

    Maybe he should ask the democratically elected state house what their rationale was in passing the bill, instead of the governor for signing it.

  • $1014973

    Shouldn’t the hispaniard worry about what is going on in his own state?

  • ernst1776

    Silverwoman and Salbazar are like middle-school children.

  • Mary Lee

    How in the world is this bill against women’s rights? Someone please explain how keeping women in the dark; using euphemisms; railing against regulations and ultrasounds; telling them “don’t look”; and completely lying to them about fetal development and the abortion procedure is actually helping women make informed decisions. You make informed decisions when you are given INFORMATION. You get information from advances in technology, from accurate medical FACTS, not from Planned Parenthood watchwords. These people DO NOT CARE about women’s health. They care about abortion, at all costs. Abortion uber alles!

    • Raye09

      I truly don’t get it, bills like this actually make it safer for women to get abortions, they are not restricting rights. After Kermit Gosnell and his little shop of horrors you would think more regulation would be welcomed, but no it’s not, it’s seen as “anti woman”.

      • grais

        Their fight against any and all regulation is what created Kermit Gosnell and allowed him to do what he did for as long as he did it.

        • Mary Lee

          Yes….they blame us for Gosnell (……??????…..) but Gosnell is just the logical conclusion to “abortion rights.” They don’t want regulations, they don’t want limits, they don’t want safety. It’s just fearmongering, demagoguery, and lies.

    • Damien Johnson

      Funny how it’s called “Reproductive Rights” and yet the product of said reproduction has none, nor benefits anything from said “reproductive rights”.

      • Mary Lee

        Yes, and also how there is absolutely nothing “reproductive” about abortion. At all. It is, in fact, the OPPOSITE of “reproductive.”

        Women have “reproductive rights.” We have the right to reproduce, or not. Once a woman is pregnant, she has already reproduced. She is already a mother. As abortion is used primarily as birth control, I would suggest pro-aborts just call a spade a spade and stop using euphemisms.

  • ObamaFail

    Informed decisions are considered evil by the left. If the left made informed decisions, Obama never would have been elected President, or re-elected. Liberals are against any chance of someone making an informed decision. Planned Parenthood is scared that the number of abortions will drop if women see the baby while it’s in the womb, because they’re scared that the zealot getting the abortion will see that it’s not just a blob of tissue, that it’s a freaking baby.

    • grais

      As if we needed more proof, there’s this tweet from Salazar: “At what level a woman wants to be informed should be her choice – not forced on her.”

      It’s mind-boggling.

  • Caleb Herod

    Walker should have surrounded himself with a gaggle of preemies. It’s exactly what Democrats would have done–that is, if they liked babies.

  • Lisa Dean

    So, asking for ultra sound machines and that an abortion doctor have admitting rights to a hospital nearby is waging #waronwomen. However, Dr. Gosnell and his horrendous actions and non licensed personnel is just hunky dory – got it.

  • CDUB

    Is it just me? Regulations on every thing, and I mean everything, and this bill calls for an ultrasound, as part of the lefts LOVE with regulation.

    Good grief women, just being safe.

    • Basset_Hound

      Never mind that the practitioner should first determine the age and position of the fetus. Or should he just reach blindly into the woman’s uterus and start ripping?

      • Hiraghm

        Well, if they actually intend killing the baby, I’d prefer it that way. Or if they just started gutting her with some garden shears.
        Not a whole hell of a lot of sympathy for irresponsible premeditated murderers.

        • GaryTheBrave

          Drawing and Quartering the woman to complete the abortion? Sounds like that is what Salazar wants.

          • Hiraghm

            Hey, then maybe he’s really a very sneaky anti-abortionist?

  • Dane Gunderson

    So Gov Scott Walker should carry a rape whistle?

  • Basset_Hound

    On several occasions, I pointed out that my daughter and I had to listen to a list of complications and see the x-rays before we had her wisdom teeth removed. When I asked why this shouldn’t apply to abortion, I got no answers, only snarky comments.

    If the schools would quit teaching children that a “fetus” is just a tissue mass until 9 months old, there wouldn’t be a need to have ultrasound laws. I will be curious to see how many girls back out of abortion when they see their baby at 15 wks of age.

  • right_on

    …I’m still trying to figure out how requiring a pre-abortion ultrasound infringes on a woman’s right to keep having unprotected sex…at will. Or, perhaps because it might expose their lack of a conscience? (Out of sight, out of mind?)

    • Red Fred

      Planned Parenthood filing lawsuit because they fear imaging that’s clearly an infant will change women’s minds and cut into their profit margin. We have to take, not ask for, TAKE our country back.

    At the risk of bringing civics down several levels, Joe, here you go:

    1. If the governor SIGNS the bill to make it a law, he is in favor of it.

    2. If he vetoes the bill, he is against it.

    That is how you express your “position” on the issue.

  • Dunnyveg

    You would think after all Jews went through in the last century that Silverman would be a little more sensitive and responsible about spreading hate. These kinds of comments coming from a Jew and a Hispanic give the lie to the liberal false stereotype that only whites can be oppressors and spread hate. It appears the “oppressed” are spreading a little hate of their own.


    The Governor of a state doesn’t just write a law and sign it. ( unlike Pres Obama ) this law obviously went through the state House and Senate. It was debated and passed by both and sent to the Governor. Anyone who has an interest in why the law was passed and signed can simply read the transcript of the debate. No midnight shenanigans behind the people’s back.

  • Mark81150

    Is brain dead a condition required for democrats elected Rep’s at the state level?

    They call a vote.. which THEY delayed a “secret” vote, with the well full of media to record it..

    and this idiot essentially doesn’t want women to have the right to defend themselves against rape, because they being such delusional hysterics, they might just shoot up the campus….. and liberal pro-death zealots call this moron a “defender” of women’s health?

    seems he’s far more concerned with a rapist’s health… since he’s all for keeping women defenseless when that is the issue. But allowing a woman to make an INFORMED choice?… that’s “harming” women’s health?

    He’s worse than merely stupid, he’s stupid AND a zealot…
