Scott Walker Campaign Spokeswoman Supports Planned Parenthood, Abortion

Last Thursday, news broke that Gov. Scott Walker's campaign spokeswoman, Alleigh Marre, is a vocal supporter of Planned Parenthood, abortion, and contraception.

"Obviously, that's a problem. These are top positions," said Matt Sande, Pro-Life Wisconsin's Legislative Director. "They should be of one mind on these core social issues. I think he needs a new spokeswoman, immediately."

In 2011, Marre, 25, wrote on her blog, which has since been deleted, "I'm a Republican, and I support Planned Parenthood, a woman's right to choose, access to STD testing, birth control, etc. Did I mention I'm a Republican?"

The same day, Gov. Walker defended his hiring of Marre, saying he hires people for his campaign based on their abilities, not their pro-life beliefs. He added that Marre would be keeping her job. “She’s not a policy maker in those particular issues,” he said in her defense. “She’s acting as a communications person.”

More on this later. It's a move to make him look "presidential" I'm sure.  Just like Paul Ryan supporting gay "marriage."  


  1. This is dissapointing.

  2. Gov. Walker has a right to staff his team with whomever he thinks will do the best job.

    I as a voter and a tax payer do wonder however how someone who so ardently supports an organization that is a master of the murder of the unborn, the devastation of the dignity of marriage, and the corruption of youthful innocence, can possibly comfortably and articulately support and defend the governor's positions in the very public job she has?

  3. Mark Belling was going off about this the other day. He called himself a "proud supporter" of the pro-life organizations in WI, but came down hard on the pro-life groups because he was saying that this position has nothing to do with policy making, so it shouldn't matter if she's pro-abortion. He made the case that it's impossible to have everyone onboard agree with "everything". But no one is saying "everything" in terms of being in agreement. Abortion is a huge issue and having someone who's moral compass is so far off serving on any close role to the governor is disappointing.

    If abortion is as evil as we say it is (which it is) the judgement of those supporting it must be extraordinarily impaired. So why have them working for you in any capacity? Makes no sense. Belling was making a straw man argument.

  4. What's disappointing is being a Catholic and seeing people judge, I believe that it shouldn't be allowed in our church, but to judge people and limit their full potential because of their beliefs is not something I believe Jesus would have been proud of.

    1. Leviticus 19:15: "You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.

      Proverbs 31:9: Open your mouth, judge righteously; maintain the rights of the poor and needy.

      Matthew 7:2: For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.
