Wisconsin Abortion Foes Try to Recall Pro-Choice Senators

Wisconsin abortion foes are seeking to recall their two U.S. Senators, Russell Feingold and Herb Kohl, because the senators voted against the D&X abortion ban. Abortion foes claim they have collected over 300,000 signatures on each senator and will have the 391,000 thousand required for each by the 5:00 p.m., June 3rd deadline. Opponents of the drive claim it is unconstitutional because courts have ruled that states cannot set regulations for electing members of Congress.
