Action Alert: Call your legislators!

On Friday State Representative Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) reintroduced the  Wisconsin Personhood Amendment, legislation that would amend the Wisconsin Constitution to apply personhood rights to preborn children at all stages of development.  Assembly Joint Resolution (AJR) 49 extends the inalienable right to life already found in the Wisconsin Constitution to all preborn children from the beginning of their lives. 

Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) is the lead author in the State Senate. The legislation has been referred to the Assembly Committee on State Affairs chaired by Rep. Mike Kuglitsch (R-New Berlin). An amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution requires passage in two successive legislatures followed by a simple majority vote of the people.

The Wisconsin Personhood Amendment is the strongest, most comprehensive pro-life legislation ever introduced in the state of Wisconsin. It seeks to end abortion in Wisconsin, not to regulate or restrict it.  It seeks to end all violence toward preborn children – surgical, chemical, experimental, etc. – at all stages of development. 

We thank Representative Jacque and Senator Grothman for their steadfastness and faithfulness to the cause of personhood, and we certainly thank the amendment’s eleven co-sponsors for their heroic and principled stand in support of personhood: Representatives Dave Craig (R-Big Bend), Garey Bies (R-Sister Bay), Mark Born (R-Beaver Dam), Rob Hutton (R-Brookfield), Tom Larson (R-Colfax), Dan LeMahieu (R-Cascade), Don Pridemore (R-Hartford), Joe Sanfelippo (R-West Allis), Michael Schraa (R-Oshkosh), Jeremy Thiesfeldt (R-Fond du Lac) and Paul Tittl (R-Manitowoc).

Personhood: It's for you, Andrew

Wisconsin Family Action shared a touching story about the power of personhood on their weekly radio commentary. 

"A couple of months or so into the pregnancy, Judith realized something was very wrong and went to the hospital.  While there and under treatment, she asked the doctor, 'Is my baby dead?'  The doctor replied, 'Please, Mrs. Brant—product of conception.'"
