WI Republican Lawmaker Renews War On Women
July 3, 2016

Wisconsin State Representative Jesse Kremer (R-Underneath a rock) wants everyone to know that he is not prejudiced or a bigot - he hates everyone equally.

Last year, Kremer surfaced when he came up with the utterly insane and inane idea of shaming the poor by requiring them to use a photo ID when they bought anything with an EBT card.

This year, Kremer crawled out from from under his rock to wage war on transgender kids. He followed this up by doing some whitesplaining to a African American colleague.

Now, this time Kremer has slithered out and decided to do something about those uppity women and all their rights.

Kremer is proposing a law that would require doctors to tell women who want the abortion pill about an injection that could reverse the abortion, even though there's no proof and it could actually harm the woman:

Rep. Jesse Kremer, R-Kewaskum, said this week he plans to introduce a bill next legislative session that will require doctors to tell patients who request an abortion pill that getting injections of progesterone could reverse the effects of the pill and direct them to websites such as abortionpillreversal.com, which is owned by a San Diego-based anti-abortion rights doctor George Delgado.

But the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has warned no scientific evidence exists to support such a process and it could be dangerous to women who seek the injections.

"This approach is not recommended in ACOG’s clinical guidance on medication abortion," said guidelines the group released to its members in 2015 in response to similar legislation in Arizona. The group also noted that while progesterone is generally well-tolerated, it could cause "significant cardiovascular, nervous system and endocrine adverse reactions as well as other side effects."

Let me repeat this - Kremer wants women to be told about an anti-abortion website and an injection that could do serious harm to them. For what purpose? I dunno.

Republicans might consider Kremer to be a rising star but they need to remember that what goes up always comes down. And with dolts like Kremer, it's usually hard and on their face.
