MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republicans running for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin support banning abortion with no exceptions and they back new restrictions on stem cell research.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that both Kevin Nicholson and state Sen. Leah Vukmir told the group Pro-Life Wisconsin that they back those positions. They both also support a federal “personhood” law that critics say would criminalize certain forms of birth control.READ MORE: Procession Outside Minnesota Capitol Honors Victims Of Domestic Violence
