From Pro-Life Wisconsin:


Love for Life Gala a success

This past weekend, we hosted Matt Walsh, the conservative blogger and speaker from the Blaze.

He was well-received by all our guests at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee.

If you came to the Gala, we appreciate your generosity and your time. We took a lot of photos from the night, and they’re online on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

At the end of the Gala, we asked for your best gift in support of our mission. If you took home an envelope to pray about your contribution, we appreciate your discernment. You’re welcome to return it at your convenience or make your investment online right now.

If you were unable to attend but would still like to invest in a culture of life, it’s not too late! You can click here or call Matt Von Rueden at (262) 796-1111 ext. 15 to make your Love for Life Gala contribution.

As a final Gala note, if you didn’t complete the survey, can you take it online? It’s a seven-question survey about your experience. Find it here.

Pro-Life News

TRAFFICKING: In their groundbreaking study … Laura J. Lederer and Christopher A. Wetzel examined the stories of sixty-six victims of sex trafficking. They found that fifty-five percent of these women had undergone at least one abortion while being trafficked and more than thirty percent underwent multiple abortions. PLW: We’ve known for a long time that abortion helps cover up a myriad of crimes.

SUPREME COURT: Republican candidate Donald Trump promises that the landmark Roe vs. Wade ruling will be overturned “automatically” if he is empowered to make appointments to the nation’s Supreme Court. PLW: While the SCOTUS can’t overturn a decision if it isn’t deciding a case, Trump’s commitment to appoint pro-life justices is heartening.

SIDEWALK COUNSELING: They said the kindness and understanding shown by the pro-life prayer warriors outside the abortion clinic really changed their lives. Not only did they keep them from aborting their baby, but they also opened up their faith in God. PLW: Prayers save lives, it’s as simple as that.

ELECTION: If she is elected, Americans should expect Clinton to use all the resources and political will of the Oval Office to accomplish her abortion objectives. PLW: Clinton’s unfailing support of Planned Parenthood and abortion throughout pregnancy are shocking to many Americans.

CONTRACEPTION: Scientists have made a major breakthrough in male contraception after developing a compound that could switch off sperm’s ability to swim. PLW: Another pill to “fix” something that isn’t broken.

PP FUNDING: In Mississippi, a U.S. District judge ruled that “essentially every court to consider similar laws” has found that (stripping Medicaid funds from abortion-providers) violates the so-called Free-Choice-of-Provider Provision. PLW: Despite having 377 federally qualified health clinics and rural health centers, women have “no where else to go” except Mississippi’s ONE Planned Parenthood.

LIFE TALK TV: PLW’s Communications Director Jade Hrdi was a guest on Life Talk TV, an online show about life-issues. Watch it here.
