PLW Victory Fund PAC candidate endorsements
The Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund political action committee (PAC) has endorsed 23 candidates who are 100 percent pro-life and running for state office in tomorrow’s general election.

To be “100% pro-life” is to know that a human being begins at conception and to therefore understand that there may never be a legal exception to an innocent child’s inalienable right to life. Accordingly, it requires defending the child conceived in rape, the child whose mother’s life is perceived to be in danger, the disabled preborn baby, the tiny embryo vulnerable to experimental research, or the terminally ill patient who is viewed as a “burden” on society.

We are proud to endorse these candidates who recognize the personhood of the preborn baby and who hold the principled and compassionate no-exceptions pro-life philosophy. Only when we have lawmakers who will fully protect preborn children as “persons” will we see an end to the scandal of legal abortion.

Colorado and North Dakota to Vote on Personhood Amendments Tomorrow




The citizens of Colorado and North Dakota will go to the polls tomorrow and vote for or against amendments to their respective state constitutions establishing the legal personhood of the preborn child from conception.

The Colorado Definition of Person and Child Initiative, Amendment 67, is on the November 4th ballot in Colorado. The measure seeks to include preborn human beings under the definition of “person” and “child” in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act. The amendment reads in part:

Section 17. Protection of Pregnant Mothers and Unborn Children
2. Definitions. In the interest of the protection of pregnant mothers and their unborn children from criminal offenses and neglect and wrongful acts, the words "person" and "child" in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act must include unborn human beings.

The North Dakota Life Begins at Conception Amendment, Measure 1, is on the November 4th ballot in North Dakota. Passed by the North Dakota Legislature as Senate Concurrent Resolution 4009, the amendment seeks to establish the inalienable right to life at every stage of human development. The amendment reads:

Measure 1 adds a new section to Article I of the Constitution of North Dakota:
The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.

Coloradoans and North Dakotans are simply trying to protect preborn children as persons in their respective states, and they are under intense attack from the national pro-abortion industry. Please pray for them!

Brittany Maynard Takes Her Own Life



Brittany Maynard, a 29 year old woman with terminal brain cancer, shot to national fame for her decision to end her own life rather than suffer the debilitating effects of her condition. After first announcing her decision in October, Maynard received a worldwide outpouring of grief and countless appeals to re-think her decision.

But despite the global outpouring of love, Maynard tragically took her own life on Sunday, November 2, using drugs legally prescribed under Oregon's assisted suicide law. Maynard's death is being used by the "death with dignity" group, Compassion and Choices to push for the national acceptance of assisted suicide. 

While the culture at large is hailing Brittany's choice as positive and courageous, we must call it what it is---a tragedy and an act of cowardice. Brain cancer is a terrible condition, and yet self-inflicted death is not the answer. What Maynard needed most was love, support, and medical care---not encouragement to end her life. Tragically, Maynard's example will encourage countless others to give up hope and discard their own lives. Her choice will extinguish the will to live in the hearts of countless others, causing the culture of death to envelope even more souls. 

At Pro-Life Wisconsin, we resolve to continue resisting the deceitful yet growing "death with dignity" movement that cheapens human life. We believe that every life is worth living, and suffering does not make life meaningless. As Helen Keller once said, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it."
