MILWAUKEE - Senator Lena Taylor appeared on MSNBC on Saturday, and had some negative words about the Wisconsin state Senate's debate last week regarding the bill that requires women to get an ultrasound before an abortion.
"The war on women is alive and well. Anti-women legislation has been (Republicans') priority, not creating jobs," Taylor told host Ed Schultz, according to the Journal Sentinel. "We were silenced that day. The (Senate) president broke his gavel, the women in the gallery, in the assembly, were escorted out."
Sen. Taylor continued by saying she felt the same way she thinks women in another area of the world must feel.
