“I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker said of pregnancies caused by rape and incest.

“In this case, again, it’s an unborn life, it’s an unborn child and that’s why we feel strongly about it,” Walker said. “I’m prepared to sign it either way that they send it to us.”

On Tuesday, a public hearing on the bill featured testimony from women who have had abortions and medical experts. While the Wisconsin State Assembly and Senate are expected to vote on the bill soon, none is scheduled.

Walker, a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, made news last week when he said ultrasounds were “pretty cool” while discussing Wisconsin’s mandatory ultrasounds for women seeking abortions.
