Compassionate Care wins

-- despite Grothman and Strachota.

Hi everyone,

Despite Pat Strachota and Glenn Grothman's efforts, victims of rape in Wisconsin can now avoid pregnancy.

Somehow, common sense won out.
The Badger Herald - Compassionate Care bill passes final state hurdle:

After years of debate and recent technical holdups, a bill mandating that rape victims receive emergency contraception upon request passed its final legislative hurdle in the state Senate Thursday.

[...]

The bill that would require hospitals to give victims of sexual assault information on emergency contraception — often called Plan B — and to administer the drugs upon request passed in the Senate by a 25-6 vote Thursday.

So the new-conservatism loses to common sense? What does that say about the new-conservatism?
