Coggs supports killing babies

Rep. Elisabeth Coggs (D-Milw 10) has introduced JR81 relating to Women's Reproductive Rights.. 
Relating to: women's reproductive rights.
Whereas, the basic right of all women to decide freely on issues of childbearing  and sexual and reproductive health without threat of coercion, violence, or discrimination is a safeguard that must be protected; and
 
Whereas, women comprise fifty-two percent of the United States' population but bear the sole responsibility for childbearing; and
 
Whereas, women who plan their pregnancies are more likely to seek prenatal care, improving their own health and the health of their children; and
 
Whereas, it is obvious that politics is a key arena for the fight to protect and expand reproductive rights for women both in Wisconsin and the nation, and merely electing more women or more "good" politicians is simply not enough to ensure this necessary commitment; and
 
Whereas, reproductive health is a component of overall health, throughout the life cycle, for both men and women; and 
 
Whereas, reproductive decision-making, including voluntary choice in marriage, family formation, and determination of the number, timing, and spacing of one's children rests with the ability to have access to the information and means needed to exercise voluntary choice; and
 
Whereas, a majority of American voters believe that matters related to women's reproductive rights, including contraception and abortion, are personal issues that should be decided by women and their families, health care providers, and clergy members; and
 
Whereas, supporters of women's reproductive rights include the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Planned Parenthood, National Organization for Women, NARAL Pro-Choice, Center for Reproductive Rights, and the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association, just to mention a very few; now, therefore, be it
 
Resolved by the assembly, the senate concurring, That the Wisconsin legislature supports women's reproductive rights.
Rep Coggs, I would ask you this young lady, who speaks for the "least of these" in the 10th District?

It certainly isn't you.
