Two opportunities to hear Steven Mosher

Pro-Life Wisconsin is hosting Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, in March.

Mosher spent time in China studying the effects of their one-child policy. He personally witnessed forced abortions and had a dynamic conversion experience. He is now a strong pro-life advocate.

He'll speak in Madison and Waukesha at our two spring dinners.

Tuesday, March 28, in Waukesha, Mosher will speak at the Marriott West.

Wednesday, March 29, in Madison, at the Living Courage Awards Dinner, we'll honor activists Tom & Amy Lang and legislator State Sen. Chris Kapenga at the Crowne Plaza. Mosher will speak after the awards.

Purchase tickets for either event online.

See you in March!

Congressman Sensenbrenner introduces bill ending the trade and use of aborted baby body parts

U.S. Representative F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-WI) has introduced legislation, House Resolution (H.R.) 1203,  to prohibit research using aborted human fetal tissue.

Entitled the Safe RESEARCH Act, H.R. 1203 would ensure that fetal tissue derived from miscarriage and stillbirth can be used in research.

The move was applauded by the Heal Without Harm Ethical Research Coalition, composed of member organizations, including Pro-Life Wisconsin, Wisconsin Family Action, Wisconsin Right to Life, and the Wisconsin Catholic Conference, among others. U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) is a co-sponsor of the legislation.

Pro-Life News


PLANNED PARENTHOOD: The Planned Parenthood clinic in Johnson Creek shut its doors in 2013. It was one of four Wisconsin clinics to permanently close that year, following a loss of $1 million in state funding delivered in Gov. Scott Walker’s first budget as governor. PLW: We urge legislators to starve the abortion giant by cutting off all state and federal public funding streams to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

FAITH: To them, he says the reality is that people will seek abortions whether it is illegal to do so, or not. By choosing to support those people instead of demonizing them, “we create an environment that is safe and healthy so that if you are afraid of lives being lost, then we are losing the least amount of lives possible.” PLW: When Christians stand together against the slaughter of innocent unborn children, abortion will end.

UTAH: Dr. Leah Torres, one of the handful of physicians who performs elective abortions at the clinic, said she has been trying to comply with the law, but she doesn't know how to administer fetal anesthesia. PLW: Doctors in Utah don't know how to administer anesthesia to unborn children prior to abortions, which reveals the problems with  trying to regulate abortion rather than ending it.

MONTANA: A bill introduced in Montana on Monday would effectively make abortions illegal after 24 weeks, with no exceptions. PLW: Exceptions in abortion regulation say that it's OK to kill some children based on their manner of conception or their development. That's legalized discrimination.

MEXICO CITY POLICY: In early January, abortion practitioner Santiago Diaz abruptly shuttered his clinic. PLW: Puerto Rico abortion facilities are already closing after President Trump stopped U.S. funding of overseas abortion providers.

MEXICO CITY POLICY: The Netherlands started the global fund in January, pledging $10 million. They were soon joined by Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Canada and Cape Verde. Norway has now pledged $10 million (toward international abortion funding) of their own. PLW: These countries say they are "stepping up" to help women, but these funds could help empower women with education or job training rather than sent to abortion facilities. Abortion doesn't help a woman long term, but furthering education would.

FEMINISM: There may not be that many differences between the secular and religious pro-life movements after all. PLW: Marie Claire magazine interviewed pro-life feminists, many of them atheistic. While Pro-Life Wisconsin relies on God to help us cultivate a culture of life, it doesn't take faith in God to know when life begins.

RUSSIA: Unfortunately, abortion is very prevalent in Russia. This can be traced back to Soviet times, when many people considered abortion to be a routine form of family planning. PLW: The Catholic and Orthodox churches are working together to move Russia toward life.

ROE: Norma McCorvey's death brought to light her personal struggles after the Supreme Court decision. Her life shows that there is healing and forgiveness possible after leaving the abortion movement.
