necessary to kill babies who have “genetic defects”
Writing about the Madison Surgery
Center and quoting Pro-Life
Wisconsin’s press release, pro-abortion columnist Robin Marty stated,
“The [Madison Surgery Center’s]
intent was to perform abortions that would have occurred in the weeks shortly
after a woman has her fetal abnormality scan. In other words, it was most
often likely to provide abortions to women who discovered that their wanted babies had genetic defects
that made them often too sick to survive outside the womb.
activists had their way, all they want to accomplish with closing this clinic
would be forcing women to carry to term babies that they wanted but would not
live for long after birth, if they even made it to term.
Pro-Life Wisconsin considers
forcing another 120 women a year to have to carry wanted, loved, but unviable
babies to be a ‘victory for God.’ My God has much more compassion than
This is nothing more than Hitler’s eugenics gone
mainstream. Lest we forget, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger
advocated for eugenics against the disabled, Catholics and minorities.
opposes abortion in ALL cases. Not
even in the case of fetal abnormality? When abortion is used to do away
with a disability, it is discrimination of the most severe kind. These
children are not merely discriminated against for their disability; they are
killed because of it. Abortions in these cases raise frightening prospects,
for if it is right to kill a disabled person in the womb, could it not then
be permissible to kill a disabled infant? A disabled adult? The answer is
clearly “no” in those cases; why is there any question when the victim is a
child in the womb? Preborn children diagnosed with disabilities deserve to be
treated with the same respect as people born with or without a disability.
Every person, born or unborn, has the same worth in God’s
eyes. The circumstances of a person’s conception or physical or mental
handicaps do not diminish our worth. As we pray outside abortion clinics – we
pray for the souls of the babies killed and the souls of those involved in
vaccine now marketed to young boys
The article below from the Chicago Tribune outlines how the HPV vaccine is now being
marketed to young boys.
Unfortunately, the article quotes the U.S. Center for
Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration as saying most side
effects of the drug have been mild.
In reality, at least 18 young women have died from the
vaccine since it was approved in 2006. In 2008, there were 140 reported
"serious" complications, 27 of which were categorized as
"life-threatening," as well as ten spontaneous abortions and six
cases of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, according to LifeSiteNews.
In 2007, Pro-Life Wisconsin defeated an attempt to mandate
the Gardasil vaccination of sixth grade girls in Wisconsin’s public, private and charter
schools. We continue to keep a watchful eye on government intrusion into
From the Chicago Tribune:
For parents already uneasy about
vaccinating their children, the news that the maker of Gardasil recently
began promoting its HPV shots to boys as young as 9 is prompting yet another
round of internal debate.
Gardasil was introduced for girls in 2006 as the first vaccine to offer
protection against human papillomavirus, or HPV. The sexually transmitted
virus can cause genital warts in both sexes.
But although HPV has been linked to rare types of cancers in males, most who
carry the virus never have symptoms. Certain types of HPV in females, though,
are known to raise a much greater risk of cervical cancer. So advocates say
the most important reason to have men vaccinated is to protect their female
Most side effects have been
mild, according to the CDC and Food and Drug Administration.
workers pressure those in their care into abortions
Earlier in May, a Philadelphia
social worker revealed that a girl under her care was pressured by the
Department of Human Services to get an abortion. The social worker was then
fired after she took a stand against abortion.
A caseworker with the Philadelphia Department of Human
Services (DHS) allegedly pressured a pregnant teenager in foster care into a
late-term abortion by threatening to take away her toddler or her yet-unborn
baby. Additionally, Marisol Rivera, the girl's social worker, said that
she was fired for refusing to take the teen to a late-term abortion clinic.
"They hired me to work in child protection, not to
kill children," Rivera told the Philadelphia
Then last week,
Bishop Victor Galeone of St.
revealed a social worker tried to pressure his mother into aborting him
during the Great Depression. From LifeSiteNews:
Bishop Victor Galeone, who has been a priest for nearly
fifty years and the bishop of St.
for the past nine, recently revealed that he owes his life to his mother, who
resisted pressure by a government social worker to abort him during the Great

Griswold v. Connecticut Prayer Vigils
June 7 marks the 45th
anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Griswold
v. Connecticut, which set a legal precedent by claiming the Constitution
grants women the “right to privacy” in matters of sexual practice. This paved
the way for Roe v. Wade and
abortion on demand. As in years past, Pro-Life Wisconsin affiliates will
observe the day with prayer and a community presence outside abortion mills
and birth control centers.
