Help Justice Kelly; It Won’t Cost You a Dime!
Have a Postcard Party—We’ll Give You Everything You Need

Want to make a HUGE difference for Justice Kelly, without knocking doors or making phone calls? Then Wisconsin Family Action has just the thing for you: host a “Get-Out-The-Vote Postcard Writing Party”! Justice Daniel Kelly is the only conservative choice on the ballot for Supreme Court Justice and has been endorsed by Wisconsin Family Action PAC. We are doing all we can to help Justice Kelly win this critical election against his opponent, Jill Karofsky, and hope you’ll join us in our efforts to “get out the vote” far and wide across The Badger State!

We will supply the postcards, the stamps, the mailing addresses and the pens. You supply your friends, some handwriting labor (and maybe some coffee, tea and treats!) and have lots of fun all while making a big impact in the upcoming election.

Every vote matters. A lot of research has been dedicated in recent years to various mobilization (i.e.¸ get-out-the-vote or GOTV) experiments. Consistent findings show that
• personalized methods and messages work better.
• social networks and interpersonal influence can be powerful mobilizing forces.
• the content of mobilization messages is not as important as the quality, timing, and delivery of messages.

Well-designed postcards with personal, handwritten messages are a proven, EXCELLENT way to mobilize voters!

CLICK HERE NOW to sign up for your “postcard package” (or call us at 888-849-2536) and we’ll ship it right out to you today!


​​​​​​NEW! CANDIDATE FORUM

Hosted by WI Family Council & DaySpring Church 

On Tuesday, April 7, Wisconsin has a critical Supreme Court election on the ballot. As part of our organization’s attempt to do our best to engage with Wisconsin families about issues of great importance in The Badger State, we are providing this candidate forum so you can take advantage of this opportunity to hear the candidates’ views on the role of the court, the upcoming election, and their qualifications.

On Monday, March 16, from 7-8:30 p.m., Wisconsin Family Council (WFC) and DaySpring Church will be hosting, for the first time ever, the Wisconsin Supreme Court Candidate Forum at DaySpring Church in Pewaukee. Our media host for this event will be VCY America. WFC president Julaine Appling will be the moderator and a panelist, along with Pastor Daniel Reehoff of DaySpring Church and Jim Schneider, Executive Director of VCY America.

The Candidate Forum is free and open to the public.

Find all the information you need to know about our Candidate Forum on our brand new Vote Right Wisconsin website by clicking HERE!

Mark your calendar and plan to fill your vehicle with friends, family and neighbors. Get the word out now and plan to arrive early as we expect a full house for this event!  Light refreshments will be available before the Forum.


Report Shows Abortions Increasing Across Wisconsin

The state Department of Health has released the newest abortion data, and they don’t fare well for Wisconsin. The number of induced abortions reported for Wisconsin residents in 2018 was 6,042, an increase of 7 percent over induced abortions reported in 2017. Women ages twenty to twenty-four accounted for the largest proportion, thirty percent, of abortions in 2018. Eighty-six percent of reported induced abortions were obtained by women who were not married at the time of the abortion. Eighty two percent of women who had abortions have never been married.
READ THE REPORT HERE

Julaine Appling, WFA president, says, “It’s discouraging to see the number of abortions increasing. We still have a lot of work to do to change hearts and minds. However, the data once again clearly show that the safest place for an unborn baby is in the womb of a married woman. Only 14% of these abortions were obtained by married women. While that’s still much too high, it reminds us marriage really is a difference-maker.”

SPEAKING OF ABORTION…
This week the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments about a Louisiana law that requires abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges to treat women who have emergency complications. Opponents say this requirement places an “undue burden” on women’s access to abortion. Louisiana state attorneys, with backing from the Trump administration and support from pro-life groups, contend the law is aimed at improving health and safety measures at abortion clinics. This will be the first abortion case President Trump’s appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, will hear.

Wisconsin has a similar law that has never been enforced because Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit against it shortly after Governor Walker signed the bill. The decision of the court will have implications nationwide. Wisconsin Family Action was honored to join with a number of other pro-life family policy councils from around the country in submitting a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the law.

Listen to the update to the case on this week’s Home Front radio program HERE.

Direct Primary Care Bill Passes Senate, Goes to Governor’s Desk

Last week the state senate gave the needed final vote on a bill, SB 28, that helps families control their health care. The direct primary care bill, authored by Republicans Representative Joe Sanfelippo and Senator Chris Kapenga, exempts direct primary care agreements from the state’s insurance laws. Direct primary care agreements are contracts signed between a health-care provider and an individual in which the health-care provider agrees to provide primary care services to the individual for an agreed-upon fee and period of time. Governor Evers vetoed the bill last Friday.

“Direct primary care agreements offer families more flexibility and very often more affordability in their health care,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president. “It’s part of how we keep or help families become self-sufficient and independent. Getting insurance companies out of these agreements assures more control by the people directly giving and receiving the health care. Apparently Governor Evers isn’t interested in truly helping Wisconsin’s best natural resource–her families.”
