IN THIS EDITION
A new report from Forward Analytics shows that the state of Wisconsin will face challenges in the coming years due to stagnating population growth during the last decade. According to the report, the state’s population increased 3.6%, the slowest 10-year growth rate on record. This trend is being driven by a declining youth population. Over the decade, Wisconsin’s under-18 population fell 4.3%, more than double the 2.1% decline during 2000-2010. The decline in the youth population was largely driven by falling birth rates.
Julaine Appling pointed out a solution, “This is an issue we must keep returning to. All over our state, employers are desperate for workers. This isn’t just a skills gap or people being paid not to work. This is a demographic issue. Our decades-long low birth rate has caught up to us. One answer to this serious problem is for all of us to become marriage and child-bearing champions, especially families and churches. Simply put, we need more ‘good fertility,’ which is that which takes place in one-man/one-woman marriages. We need to view children as gifts, not burdens or unwanted responsibilities.”
Election integrity continues to be a hot topic in Wisconsin. Adding to the controversy, Governor Evers announced earlier this week that recently he joined with 16 other governors to send a letter to US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell urging them to pass the so-called “Freedom to Vote Act” and the John R. Lewis “Voting Rights Advancement Act.” Both bills, which have already passed in the US House of Representatives, essentially federalize all elections and are heavily supported by liberal lawmakers and organizations.
Julaine Appling clarified, “Federalizing our elections is exactly the wrong way to ensure free and fair elections where it’s easy to vote but hard to cheat. These bills would remove from states the ability to make and enforce election law. That’s a set up for fraud because it removes the process further from the people. Hopefully, conservatives in the US Senate will continue to stand strong on this issue.”
In other words, federalizing elections directly opposes the preservation of a government that is “of the people, for the people and by the people.”
“Wisconsin’s Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul said in an interview Tuesday that he would not investigate or prosecute anyone for having an abortion should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade and a currently unenforceable state ban takes effect,” wrote Scott Bauer, reporting for Associated Press earlier this week.
Julaine Appling pointed out the significance of Attorney General Kaul’s statement, “State attorneys general do not get to pick and choose which laws they wish to enforce based on political expediency. Science and our moral reason tell us that a child in the womb is just that, a child. Wisconsin has a law that would prohibit most abortions should Roe be overturned. It’s important to remember that elections have consequences. Attorney General Kaul is running for re-election next fall.”
In preparation for an After Roe America and Wisconsin, Wisconsin Family Action has partnered with Family Policy Alliance in an After Roe campaign. HERE you can watch a video of Julaine Appling assessing what Wisconsin might look like in a post-Roe time.
Many today are trying to say dads are not essential in the lives of their children. They couldn’t be more wrong. Dads are gifts from God, and the relationship they have with their daughters is, well, simply irreplaceable.
This week I, Julaine Appling, attended a funeral of a pastor friend during which all four of his daughters shared. As I listened, I was reminded in a powerful way the difference a dad can make in the life of a daughter and of how necessary that influence is.
If you are a dad with a daughter, I urge you to do everything you can to build a strong relationship with her. Fight for her, teach her, give her roots and wings, cherish her, encourage her, appropriately admonish her—love her.
Daughters, thank God for the dad you have or have had. Foster a good relationship with him, seek his counsel, learn from him—give him honor and respect—and love him with all your heart. Dads and daughters—a special relationship, a great gift from our loving God.
