From Pro-Life Wisconsin:
HUNDREDS FLOODED THE WISCONSIN STATE CAPITOL
Last Monday, January 22nd, was the 45th anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion on demand in the United States. On that dark and rainy day in Madison, Pro-Life Wisconsin co-sponsored a March for Life, organized by the Diocese of Madison, which brought over 300 people into the State Capitol building to advocate for the lives of the unborn.
These activists started out with a Mass at St. Patrick’s, just blocks away from the Capitol building. Then, equipped with Pro-Life Wisconsin signs they marched to the Capitol and circled the building before taking a few moments in prayer. Once inside the Capitol, participants delivered a red rose to each state representative and state senator along with a message encouraging them to advance the Heal Without Harm Legislative Initiative. This current piece of legislation would ban the sale and use of aborted baby body parts and also provide a way of encouraging ethical fetal tissue donation for research.
Additionally, participants visited their own legislators to express the urgent need to save lives through pro-life legislation. It was an overwhelming pro-life presence as pro-lifers with signs could be seen on every floor of the Capitol, knocking on doors and spreading a message of dignity and love.
Thanks to you who participated and all whose prayers were with us! Through God’s grace, education, prayer and 100% pro-life legislation, we look forward to a day when ever human person is cherished and loved.

U.S. SENATE SET TO VOTE ON BILL BANNING ABORTIONS AFTER 20 WEEKS: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for next week, legislation that includes exceptions for rape and the life of the mother. “Rebecca Kiessling of Save the 1 pointedly asked, ‘Are babies conceived in rape somehow incapable of feeling pain?’ Pro-life activist Monica Kelsey, who was conceived in rape, agreed with Kiessling, criticizing the National Right to Life Committee’s endorsement of the ban. And they say the ‘life of the mother’ exception implies the false idea that abortion can be a necessary medical treatment.” Read the full article here.
