The issue was front-and-center in the prayer led to begin the convention by Rev. James Reiff of Saint John's Lutheran Congregation in Oshkosh, during which Reiff criticized GOP leaders.
"Heavenly father, you know that when Wisconsin Republicans had the majority under Gov. Walker, they did nothing to safeguard the rights of the preborn," Reiff said. "Now, however, when we have a Democrat governor, these same Republicans piously claim that they're against abortion, all the while knowing that any abortion bill they bring to the governor's desk will be vetoed. Dear heavenly father, forgive our Republican legislators for their hypocrisy."
Reiff called for lawmakers to reinstate a ban on abortions in Wisconsin.
