National Day of Remembrance for the Unborn

Several Wisconsin communities will participate in a National Memorial Day for the victims of elective abortion. These vigils are sponsored by Priests for Life, Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society. In Wisconsin, they are being organized and cosponsored by Pro-Life Wisconsin. 

This powerful memorial "continues to emblazon in our minds...the fact that these tiny pre-born children are full people and deserve to be treated as people," said Peggy Hamill, Pro-Life Wisconsin's State Director. 

In Wisconsin, the September 14th Abortion Memorial events will take place in the following locations:

Milwaukee - 3 p.m. at Holy Cross Cemetery (Children’s Section) at the burial site of over 1,200 preborn babies. (With Peggy Hamill, Pro-Life Wisconsin's State Director)

Dane - 10 a.m. at a burial site located on the church grounds of St. Michael's Parish. (With Matt Sande, Pro-Life Wisconsin's Director of Legislation)

Spooner - 8:30 a.m. at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church

La Crosse - 1:30 p.m. at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Memorial to the Unborn (With Emma Scuglik, Pro-Life Wisconsin's Development Director)

Why the term "fertilized egg" should never be used 

"As I’ve mentioned before, my first major foray into the pro-life world was the 2008 Colorado Personhood campaign. As spokesperson, I had countless opportunities to present our message to the public – often through the media.

One of the most frustrating things was to pull up a newspaper article, after an interview that I thought had gone pretty well, and to see a headline that talked about protection or legal rights for “fertilized eggs.” Even I had to laugh. Protecting and recognizing eggs does sound pretty funny."
