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?
