The Wisconsin Department of Health released their latest report this week “Induced Abortions in Wisconsin” that reflects 662 babies were saved from abortions in the latest year for which abortion data is available compared with the year before. Specifically, 6,462 abortions were performed in 2013 and 5,800 in 2014.
Read the report HERE.
“While we grieve the thousands of babies aborted last year, this drop is truly significant,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president,”Pro-life efforts in our state are working. Laws such as requiring women seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound are making a difference. We need to keep the pressure on by passing Rep. Andre Jacques bills that will significantly defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.”

In response to strong outrage elicited by the recent undercover sting videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of body parts from aborted children and the gruesome dissection of children in Planned Parenthood laboratories, Wisconsin’s pro-life champion Rep. André Jacque (R-De Pere) authored three new bills that ban the sale/transfer of baby body parts AND defund Planned Parenthood.
