Wisconsin Legislature Passes Four Pro-Life Bills to Save Babies From Abortion

Wisconsin | October 28, 2021

The Wisconsin legislature is expected to pass four pro-life bills Wednesday to educate and empower parents while protecting their unborn babies from being killed in abortions.

The Republican-led state Assembly is expected to approve the bills after the state Senate passed them by a strong majority last week. The legislation soon will head to Gov. Tony Evers’ desk. A pro-abortion Democrat, Evers is expected to veto the legislation.

All four bills would provide life-saving information and support to protect unborn babies from abortion. Prior to the vote, Republican lawmakers said the measures should not be controversial and they should have bipartisan support.

The Woman’s Right to Know Act (Senate Bill 591), sponsored by state Sen. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, would require abortionists to inform their patients of thlife-saving abortion pill reversal procedure, which has saved more than 2,500 babies’ lives thus far…. (Excerpts from LIFENEWS.COM)

Mom says parenting son with Down syndrome is the ‘greatest pro-life work’ she could ever do

Wisconsin | October 11, 2021

Catherine Daub and her family have learned firsthand the reality of having a child with Down syndrome. In the Summer 2021 issue of American Life League’s Celebrate Life magazine, the long-time pro-life activist shared the story of learning that her eighth living child, William, had a “99 percent chance” of having Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. Daub described how her family’s experience has differed from the gloom-and-doom predictions she read online after receiving William’s diagnosis.

Having participated in pro-life activism over the years, by 2019 Daub had settled into her role as director of ALL’s ‘Culture of Life Studies Program’ (CLSP), which creates supplementary materials for incorporating the pro-life message into K-12 curricula. At the time, she wrote that she felt “quite certain that this [CLSP role] was how God would use me to help build a culture of life while still allowing me to be a mom and a wife first and foremost.” And with seven living children and nine miscarried babies, she also felt sure that “the next baby I’d care for would be a grandchild.” ..

Wisconsin Senate Passes Bill to Stop Infanticide, Provide Medical Care for Babies Who Survive Abortions

Wisconsin | October 4, 2021

The Wisconsin Senate passed a bill Tuesday to protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide.

Sponsored by state Sen. Roger Roth, R-Appleton, the Born Alive Abortion Survivor Act (Senate Bill 16) passed in a 19-12 party-line vote, the AP reports.

The bill would require abortionists and any health care provider to give the same degree of medical care to a baby who survives an abortion that they would to any other child born at the same gestational age. It also would require that the baby be transferred to a hospital for further care. Anyone who violates the legislation could be charged with a felony, fined up to $10,000 or both.

“Regardless of the circumstances of how a baby comes into this world, he or she must have the same rights and protections that you and I have,” Roth said earlier this month…. (Excerpts from LIFENEWS.COM)

Congress failing to allow vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

Wisconsin | July 5, 2021

— Our government’s most sacred duty is to safeguard the right to life for all Americans, including the most vulnerable. That’s why pro-life leaders in Congress are demanding a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to ensure that every newborn receives equal care, no matter the circumstances of their birth.

The effort is bitterly partisan – but it shouldn’t be. It would take only five House Democrats joining the Republicans’ petition to force a vote on this bill. Five Democrats – not to guarantee passage, just to simply have a vote. If just five House Democrats sign the Republicans’ petition, this decidedly popular, common ground legislation will get a vote. Every Republican member of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation supports this bill. Shamefully, not a single Democrat has signed on. Rep. Ron Kind, up for re-election again next year in one of the country’s most competitive districts, consistently sides with Nancy Pelosi in favor of abortion on demand. On the Senate side, Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin also refuses to support the Born-Alive Act.

Most Americans are horrified when they learn that Roe v. Wade permits abortion on demand up to birth. Indeed, the U.S. is one of only seven nations that permit late-term abortions for any reason more than halfway through pregnancy, even up to birth – a shameful club that includes North Korea and China. Even more shocking, babies sometimes survive and are callously left to die….

19-year-old mother graduates from Pulaski High School, shares message to other teen moms

Wisconsin | June 24, 2021

19-year-old Marlena Moore is sending a message to teen moms currently working to get their high school diploma: You can do it. The mother of two, with one on the way, graduated from Pulaski High School Wednesday, and she says her little ones were her motivation.

Moore says it hasn’t been easy balancing school – life and motherhood with her 2-year-old and 7-month-old sons.

She says luckily she’s had the support of her boyfriend, teachers, and family to push her to help her achieve her goal of graduating high school in four years.

The mom of two also says this past year has been especially hard dealing with the pandemic and transitioning to virtual learning and faced some challenges along the way…

Republicans, UW clash over abortion ban proposal

Wisconsin | May 31, 2021

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican legislators sparred with University of Wisconsin medical school officials Wednesday over a bill that would end an arrangement that allows UW doctors to train on abortion procedures at a Planned Parenthood clinic.

The bill comes as the fight over abortion has intensified nationally in recent weeks. A federal judge in Madison is set to rule soon on whether to expand availability of abortion-inducing pills in Wisconsin, and the U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to consider a Mississippi law aimed at overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a right to abortion.

Under the UW bill, school employees would be prohibited from training medical residents to perform abortions at Planned Parenthood’s Madison clinic or any other private facility.

Wisconsin law prohibits using tax dollars to fund abortions. UW doctors are state employees. The bill’s supporters contend UW is getting around that prohibition by having Planned Parenthood pay those physicians for performing and training abortions at the organization’s facility. Opponents counter that the bill would threaten national accreditation for the university’s obstetrics-gynecology program because it would no longer be allowed to teach abortion procedures…
