A Wisconsin Democrat over the weekend compared her Republican colleagues to the Taliban for supporting and passing a bill that would require women to get an ultrasound before being allowed to have an abortion.
During the debate over the bill last week, lawmakers and demonstrators who opposed the measure shouted and protested loudly, leading to the forcible removal of certain protesters from the senate gallery, TheBlaze reported.
And according to Democrat State Senator Lena Taylor, her Republican colleagues behaved just like the Taliban.
“This is no different than what I experienced when I went to Turkey and heard of what the women in the Middle East are experiencing with the Taliban, trying to silence them for being at the table,” she told MSNBC.
“The war on women is alive and well,” she said. ”Anti-women legislation has been their priority.”
The bill, which Gov. Scott Walker says he plans on signing into law, was introduced by State Senator Mary Lazich:
