Controversial Appointments Advance to Wisconsin Senate

On Tuesday, April 14th the Senate Health Committee voted on recommending for confirmation 3 men to the UW Hospital Hospitals & Clinics Authority Board.  Just recently this Board voted on allowing the Madison Surgery Center to begin the gruesome procedure of killing babies in the womb during their 2nd trimester.  These three men include:

Pablo Sanchez – voted against killing babies in the womb during their 2nd trimester at Madison Surgery Center– he was approved Tuesday by the Senate Health Committee on a vote of 7-0

Mike Weiden – voted in favor of killing babies in the womb during their 2nd trimester at Madison Surgery Center – he was approved Tuesday by the Senate Health Committee on a vote of 4-3

Roger Axtell – voted in favor of killing babies in the womb during their 2nd trimester at Madison Surgery Center – he was approved Tuesday by the Senate Health Committee on a vote of 4-3

These confirmations will now advance to the full Wisconsin Senate on a yet to be determined date.  Citizens across the state may contact their state senators using the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-362-9472.
