From Pro-Life Wisconsin:
The annual March for Life is Friday.
Pro-Life Wisconsin is bringing two buses to the nation’s capital to peacefully protest abortion.
Unlike this weekend’s so-called women’s march, Pro-Life Wisconsin marches for one reason: to save lives.
Friday, we’ll gather with pro-lifers from around the country and descend on the streets to rally for life. Like the marchers this past weekend, we’ll have signs and we’ll chant.
But we will do it out of love. We don’t hate women.
We hate the lie that says women can’t succeed if they are mothers.
That’s why we march.
Please pray for all marchers’ safety in the travels to and from Washington, D.C., and follow our progress across social media using the tag #PLWmarches.
EUGENICS: Lena Dunham enlisted the help of Hollywood stars in a video tribute to Planned Parenthood that praises its racist eugenicist founder Margaret Sanger. The seven-minute animated film, entitled 100 Years, features Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer, America Ferrera and Mindy Kaling. PLW: In the same way that abortion supporters gloss over what an abortion actually is with euphemisms, they’re revising the history of Planned Parenthood’s founder.
VIRGINIA: The Virginia House of Delegates voted 57-36 Wednesday to pass a symbolic resolution recognizing an annual “Day of Tears” and encouraging Virginians to mourn abortion. PLW: While the resolution doesn’t mandate anything, Virginia legislators are trying to keep abortion in everyday conversation. It’s working.
ABORTION: This is old news, but it deserves a bump back into the spotlight. In 1952, Planned Parenthood was against abortion. In their publications that year, they describe abortion as killing a child after his life has begun.
PRO-LIFE LAWS: We must also acknowledge the world we live in. It’s a world where selfish desires, outside pressure, and fear can lead some people toward a horrible, irreversible decision, unless someone else tries to prevent them. In that world — unfortunately — sometimes people have to be told what not to do, so that other people can continue to exist. PLW: This article explains what the choice in pro-choice means: choosing life or death for another person.
NO EXCEPTIONS: A baby is the beginning of something — not a “problem” to fix. The words “I’m pregnant” should never be followed by, “What should we do about it?” The thing is, it wasn’t ever “Her rapist got her pregnant,” or “Because she was assaulted, now she’s having a baby.” It was: My wife is pregnant. We’re having a kid. A new baby. PLW: Stories like this one, from Save the 1, show that all lives, regardless of their manner of conception, are worth protecting.
OUR LADY’S HELP: When protesters tried to shout down the speakers at a pro-life rally commemorating the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Sunday, they got an unusual response. Mother Olga, the keynote speaker of the event, and Cindy Dorsey, the event’s emcee, walked calmly to the podium, rosaries in hand, and led the assembly in prayer, their communal “Hail Mary’s” drowning out the shouted profanities and chants for “abortion on demand.” PLW: Once again, we’re shown that prayer and peaceful witness is the key to pro-life victories.
MICHIGAN: One of six Michigan pregnancies ended in abortion in 2015, according to the latest data from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. PLW: Abortion numbers and statistics are often staggering, and Michigan’s data is no different.
FEMINISM: Susan B. Anthony and other “feminist foremothers . . . without known exception, spoke out against abortion during the first wave.” The suffragettes were unmistakably pro-life, using terms such as “crime against humanity,” “feticide,” and “child murder.” PLW: The suffragettes were fighting for equality. It’s unclear exactly what today’s feminists are fighting for.
