“I would encourage everyone to be involved with Pro-Life Wisconsin…”



 
For over 20 years, Pro-Life Wisconsin has been faithfully laboring to cultivate a culture of life in the state of Wisconsin. But how do we plan to end abortion? Why are teens and young adults attracted to us? And why does Bishop Hying think everyone should support our work?

Choose Life Specialty License Plates at Stake at U.S. Supreme Court




Thomas More Society has filed an amicus brief urging the United States Supreme Court to rule that specialty license plates, including “Choose Life” license plates, constitute private speech in a designated public forum, which is protected by the First Amendment as free speech. The brief is brought on behalf of Choose Life America, Choose Life Wisconsin, and Illinois Choose Life. Because there have been many disputes among lower courts over how to treat specialty license plates, the Society’s brief encourages the U.S. Supreme Court to rule in the case brought by the Sons of Confederate Veterans in favor of free speech for all specialty plates, without any viewpoint bias.

“Millions of dollars for pregnancy centers as well as a powerful means of pro-life advocacy are at stake here,” said Tom Brejcha, Thomas More Society president and chief counsel. “If the U.S. Supreme Court affirms free speech for Choose Life license plates throughout the country, the revenue generated will support countless pregnancy resource centers."

You Did It! Two More Months of Life Saving Bus Ads!



Last Fall, around 100 enthusiastic pro-lifers ran for women and babies at our first-ever Loving Life 5K! And they did not run in vain---over $8,000 was raised to support women in crisis pregnancy situations! 

Now, those funds are being put to good use. In addition to supporting local pregnancy care centers, we used a portion of the funds raised to renew our beautiful crisis pregnancy bus ad running in the Milwaukee area for another two months! This ad is providing life saving options to women in need. Thank you for your support!
