$31,000 Distributed to Eleven Wisconsin Pregnancy Care Centers
Understand the Disturbance Caused by Texas’s Heartbeat Bill
Do Not Draft Our Daughters
Why 20 States are Suing the Biden Administration
IN THE MEDIA
Last week, Choose Life Wisconsin distributed $31,000 to 11 pregnancy care centers across Wisconsin. Those centers are located in De Pere, Fond du Lac, Hayward, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee, Mukwonago, Sheboygan, Waukesha, and West Bend. With this distribution, Choose Life Wisconsin has now given over $152,000 to more than thirty pregnancy care centers, all of whom are doing life-saving work for women, their unborn children, and in many cases the men who have fathered the babies.
The money that is being distributed is from the sale of the Choose Life Wisconsin license plates. Pro-life citizens who purchase the plates pay an additional $25 per year, all of which goes to Choose Life Wisconsin. Choose Life Wisconsin then takes every dime of the proceeds and gives it to pregnancy care centers that have submitted applications.
The reason every cent of the money from the sale of the plates can go to the incredible pregnancy care centers is that Wisconsin Family Council and our partner on this project, Pro-Life Wisconsin, underwrite all the overhead and administrative costs for Choose Life Wisconsin—and we are honored to do so.

In the wake of the US Supreme Court’s last-minute decision to not stop the Texas heartbeat bill from going into effect, the Biden administration announced earlier this week that it will, in the words of Attorney General Merrick Garland, “urgently explore all options to challenge” the new Texas law “in order to protect the constitutional rights of women and other persons, including access to an abortion.” Garland further said federal law enforcement will provide support for any abortion facility that is, in his words, “under attack.”
Julaine Appling responded to this news by pointing out the consequences of elections: “This Texas situation is a huge reminder that elections have consequences. Biden-appointed Attorney General Garland is flat-out wrong when he talks about abortion being a constitutional right. Abortion is legal only because we’ve allowed the US Supreme Court to get away with making law. Abortion is not a constitutional right, and it’s not health care. Let’s get the facts right.”

On July 21 the Senate Armed Services Committee approved legislation that WFA considers unacceptable because it would amend the Military Selective Service Act (MSSA) to require young women to register with Selective Service for a possible future draft. Research shows that legislation like this if passed, would draft women ahead of able-bodied men which according to the U.S. male population is unnecessary and would severely weaken our national security.
Julaine Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council, signed a joint letter to the 117th Congress urging them to oppose this amendment.
In this coalition letter signed by dozens of state and national leaders representing millions of concerned citizens, they affirmed that “We admire and support the patriotic women who volunteer for military service, and no one questions their commitment or their courage. Those who serve in America’s military are free to pursue their dreams and contribute to the defense of our nation to the best of their abilities. But this is quite different from the involuntary registration and possible conscription of draft-age women. Instead of improving military readiness, such a policy would make combat arms units less strong, less fast, more vulnerable to debilitating injuries, less ready for short-notice deployment, and less accurate with offensive weapons during combat operations.”

Christian Post reported last week that twenty states are suing the Biden administration for implementing expanded LGBT+ nondiscrimination provisions that the plaintiffs believe run afoul of federal law as well as U.S. Supreme Court precedent. The Tennessee Attorney General filed the lawsuit and is joined by nineteen other attorneys general. Early on, Biden issued an executive order asserting that Title IX, which was originally designed to prevent discrimination based on biological sex in education, also prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Julaine Appling further explained that “Biden is threatening to withhold funds from schools that don’t give special rights and protections to boys who identify as girls and vice versa. There is no federal law and no court decision mandating that boys are allowed to play on girls’ sports teams or use the girls’ restrooms and locker rooms. These attorneys general are doing the right thing in challenging this order.”
