Action Alert: Move the Heal Without Harm Legislative Initiative Forward
Your state legislators need to hear from you!
The Heal Without Harm (HWH) Legislative Initiative – SB 423/AB 549 and SB 424/AB 550 (Sen. Terry Moulton, R-Chippewa Falls and Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc) – would ban the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts and instead encourage the donation of tissue from children who are stillborn or miscarried for use in research.
Currently, SB 423 and SB 424 have received public hearings, but Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee Chair Van Wanggaard has indicated he will not advance the bills out of committee unless Senators make their support for these bills known. AB 550 has received a public hearing and will be voted out of committee thanks to the quick action of Assembly Health Committee Chair Joe Sanfelipppo. AB 549 has been separated from AB 550 and was sent to the Assembly Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee chaired by Representative John Spiros and has yet to receive a public hearing.
Please call your State Senator ASAP and urge him/her to do the following:
- Support SB 423 and SB 424 and make that support known by contacting Sen. Van Wanggaard.
- Ask Sen. Waggaard to hold an executive session on SB 423 and SB 424 and vote to advance these bills out of committee ASAP.
Please call your State Representative ASAP and urge him/her to do the following:
- Ask Rep. John Spiros to hold a public hearing and executive session on AB 549 ASAP.

Drink hot chocolate while we work…
You’ve probably heard the ridiculous accusation, “You pro-lifers only care about a baby until they’re born.”
Nothing could be further from the truth, but here’s another opportunity to prove this statement false.
This coming #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28th, we have a simple and strategic plan to help young moms and babies with their most basic needs (clothes, diapers, baby items, etc.). If we collaborate in raising $4000, Pro-Life Wisconsin will do the shopping for the needed items and deliver them directly to four Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) in Wisconsin who are located closest to abortion facilities and serve the greatest number of women. These PRCs have expressed the need to us and we’re making it convenient for you to help!
What your dollars do:
- $25, buys a pack of diapers
- $50, buys maternity clothes and baby clothes
- $100, buys a high chair or stroller
- $150, buys a crib
Together let’s meet these basic need of moms and babies in this season of giving.
INSIDE PLANNED PARENTHOOD: “Matt Sande, legislative director with Pro-Life Wisconsin, says: ‘We hope that when we talk about (these issues), when we lobby on them, when we put out press releases and engage the public on this discussion, that it will personify the preborn child so people realize that there is a life here.’” Read the full article here.
PRIEST: CHALLENGE YOUR PASTORS TO ‘SPEAK THE TRUTH’ AGAINST ABORTION: “Healthcare, women’s rights, and social justice are all good things, until they are taken over and used by the enemy to kill by abortion and now euthanasia, said a Catholic priest during a National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children in a video published on Youtube November 22. ‘The enemy has co-opted the language,’ said Father Michael Orsi, former Ave Maria Law School chaplain, in a speech during the September 9 event in Florida.” Read the full article here.
