Pro-Life Wisconsin Testifies on Bills Defunding Planned Parenthood

On Wednesday, September 2, Pro-Life Wisconsin Legislative Director Matt Sande testified before a hearing of the Assembly Health Committee on Assembly Bill (AB) 310 and Assembly Bill (AB) 311, legislation that will further defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI), the state’s largest abortion provider. Authored by Representative Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) and Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), AB 310 and AB 311 together will eliminate approximately $7.5 million in public funding from PPWI.

She Used to Work for Planned Parenthood. Now She's Our Keynote Speaker! 

Abby Johnson used to run a Planned Parenthood facility. She was proud of her work and thought she was really helping women. All of that changed on September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13 week baby fought, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist.

That moment began a profound transformation in Abby's life. She is now a passionate pro-life activist, author, and speaker who travels the world speaking out for the unborn and helping others leave the abortion industry!

Come hear Abby's powerful message at our 2015 Annual Auction Dinner on October 17! Space is limited, so register now!
