Today scores of pro-life Wisconsin citizens, in bitterly cold temperatures, gathered at the state capitol in Madison for a brief outside rally for life. The Rally for Life was sponsored by the state’s 3 leading pro-life groups, Wisconsin Family Action, Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right to Life. Speakers included leaders from these organizations as well as the legislators who authored pro-life bills that are pending in the state legislature. After the outside rally, those attending went inside to visit their legislators and urge them to support these bills.
Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, said, “We are so grateful for those brave folks who joined us! The opportunity to pass these bills ends no later than the middle of March. Now is the time for the legislators to know the people of this state want these bills to pass. The bills stop millions of taxpayer dollars from going to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.”
