Who Are We
In 1992, almost 20 years after Roe v. Wade, a new statewide legislative and educational pro-life organization was formed in Wisconsin. The vision for this new organization was shared by dedicated and experienced pro-lifers who realized that the pro-life movement needed to refocus on principle to achieve total protection for all preborn children.
Pro-Life Wisconsin is that organization.
Founded on the bedrock principle of the pro-life movement – that all preborn babies are "persons" and all innocent persons share the inalienable right to life – Pro-Life Wisconsin educates the public and lobbies elected officials. Believing that "it is never the will of the Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost" (Matthew 18:14), Pro-Life Wisconsin is a Christian organization relying on God to change hearts and minds toward His most precious creation of human life.
As a legislative and educational organization, Pro-Life Wisconsin is continually working to bring us closer to the day when all babies in Wisconsin (no matter how they were conceived, what stage of development they are at, or whether or not they are in perfect health) are protected in every community in our state.
Through advocacy at the State Capitol in Madison, we urge our elected officials to ban surgical abortion without exceptions for rape, incest, or the life and health of the mother. We advocate passage of a state constitutional amendment to establish the legal personhood of every preborn child from fertilization. We defend the conscience rights of medical professionals who refuse to prescribe or dispense abortifacient drugs or devices, and we work to stop all efforts to legalize euthanasia, assisted suicide and infanticide.
PLW’s True to Life media campaign and Speakers Bureau educate the public on a variety of pro-life issues. In communities throughout our state, Pro-Life Wisconsin’s local affiliates change hearts and minds by spreading the Gospel of Life. By educating friends and neighbors about the connection between contraception and abortion, our affiliates help build strong families thereby reducing sexual promiscuity, unplanned pregnancies, and chemical and surgical abortions.
