State Sen. Glenn Grothman pushing for votes on abortion bills

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - One of Wisconsin's most conservative senators is pushing to get votes on two anti-abortion bills that Senate leaders are holding up.  

West Bend Republican Glenn Grothman said Monday that some of his GOP colleagues are afraid of media criticism for focusing on social issues. But he said all of them would vote for the pro-life bills if they had the chance.  

Last week, Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said the votes are not there to pass bills to ban public workers' insurance policies from covering abortions -- let religious groups not have to insure contraceptives for their employees -- and ban abortions based solely on the babies' genders.  

The Assembly approved those measures late last year. Senate Democrat Jon Erpenbach of Middleton had predicted, "all out hell" if his chamber was to take up those bills.  

Fitzgerald and his spokesman say Republicans want to avoid passing measures that will just get tied up in the courts. They'll wait to act on the pending measures until the federal courts are finished with a held-up law to make abortion doctors get hospital admitting privileges.  

Grothman agrees there might not be enough support right now for bills that would die if the Senate doesn't act on them by early April. Grothman's not up for re-election until 2016, but 10 of his GOP colleagues are up this fall -- including Fitzgerald and Senate President Mike Ellis.
