Walker defends stance on abortion, recent comments


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is standing firm on recent comments about abortion and ultrasounds in the face of criticism.

Asked by a New Hampshire woman during a 2-day swing through the early voting state, Walker defended a Wisconsin law that requires doctors to conduct ultrasounds before performing abortions. Speaking about abortion on a talk radio show recently, Walker touted the law, then said ultrasounds are "just a cool thing out there."

He said in his Concord stop: "I'm pro-life, but if someone's pro-choice don't you want an informed choice?"

Walker says his decision to hold firm on his stance despite criticism is an important quality for a future president.

His trip to New Hampshire also includes speaking slots at two county Republican party events.
