Gov. Scott Walker supports a 20-week abortion ban.

After staying mum on the issue during his re-election campaign last year, the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate moved Tuesday to specifically embrace banning abortion after 20 weeks.

A letter from the Wisconsin governor, on a "Friends of Scott Walker" letterhead, was released by the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life organization.

"As the Wisconsin legislature moves forward in the coming session, further protections for mother and child are likely to come to my desk in the form of a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks," his letter said."I will sign that bill when it gets to my desk and support similar legislation on the federal level. I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it."
