From Wisconsin Eye:
On February 6, 2019, Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) along with his Assembly colleagues took a public stand against the new efforts to loosen abortion restrictions during a news conference in GAR hall at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison, WI. Recently, a law was enacted in New York; another was proposed in Virginia. Last Session, Wisconsin Democrats introduced a similar proposal introduced in the Legislature.
“So we’ve seen this week all across the country, unfortunately, is the lack of concern and really what I would say is the outrageous position that people are taking in protecting human life. So why are we here today. First of all we have a reason to be concerned in Wisconsin because there is obviously, all across the nation a nationwide, an attack on the unborn. And I am here to say that, along with my colleagues, we are not going to allow that to happen in Wisconsin…”
Watch the press conference above.
Wisconsin Family Action is a proud member of the Heal Without Harm Ethical Research Coalition (HWH), comprised of Wisconsin Catholic Conference, Wisconsin Right to Life and Pro-Life Wisconsin. The HWH Coalition supports ending the trade and use of abortion-derived baby body parts, while also promoting ethical alternatives in research.
The HWH Coalition has serious concerns about recently circulated state legislation because it would continue to permit trafficking and use of children whose lives were taken by abortion. This perpetuates the exploitation of the unborn. The Coalition urges state legislators to refrain from supporting this flawed proposal.

From Family Research Council:
On March 30, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced changes to the labeling for the Mifeprex®(RU-486) abortion regimen. With these modifications, the FDA accepted wholesale the “off-label” regimen now being used by abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. These changes will greatly lower the already inadequate safety standards that had been put in place when the drug was first approved by the Clinton FDA in 2000.
WFA president Julaine Appling notes, “With this move, the pro-abortion industry has escalated its war on women. This is a potent combination of drugs and comes with significant side-effects. The lack of research on certain aspects of this new regimen puts women at more risk than under the original protocol. The abortion industry and the FDA should both be held liable.”
Rather than offering resources to help moms and babies, a radical pro-abortion group is giving Wisconsin women free food and shelter if they abort their babies.
Julaine K. Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, said NARAL’s new program is a “seemingly caring act” that encourages abortion.
“NARAL Pro-Choice’s new plan actually highlights what we’ve been saying all along—abortion isn’t just life-ending for the baby, it’s traumatic for the woman,” Appling said.

Great news in Wisconsin for women and babies!
The death knell has been silenced at the Grand Chute Planned Parenthood. On October 14, the Appleton North Health Center stopped putting the kibosh on babies’ lives. Reportedly, all abortion “services” have come to a halt, though the so-called health clinic says they plan to continue with the grisly practice again in six months.
As Planned Parenthood is feeling the pinch of squelched taxpayer funding across our nation, your voice is the driving factor behind the victories we are hearing about each day – death camps closing, babies given a chance at life. Thank you!
Here in Wisconsin, three pro-life bills are now awaiting the full Senate. Two of these bills deal directly with over $7 million of YOUR tax money going to Wisconsin’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. NOW is the time to say something!
If you haven’t done so already, please contact your legislator about these bills. As you can see, YOUR VOICE really DOES make a difference! Save time and CLICK HERE to use our pre-formatted email TODAY. It’s easy, and it only takes a few minutes.
We can’t make this stuff up.

2015 | March 3 Walker says he supports ban on abortions after 20 weeks
Via The Weekly Standard:
In an open letter released on Tuesday, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker said he would sign legislation banning most abortions after the fifth month of pregnancy, the point after which infants can feel pain and survive if born prematurely.
“As the Wisconsin legislature moves forward in the coming session, further protections for mother and child are likely to come to my desk in the form of a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. I will sign that bill when it gets to my desk and support similar legislation on the federal level,” Walker wrote. “I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it.”
A Beautiful Picture of Worth, Value, Love, Belonging and Security
Though this article is from 2012, the message it holds is one worth repeating. The author, Rob Schwarzwalder, with Family Research Council, discusses how one woman has taken her strong conviction that lends hope and a future to all children to another level, then challenges Christians to consider if they could be doing more for children who need homes.
Thriving Family also brings us this beautiful story of one couple’s adoption experience as…empty nesters!
The topic of adoption is near and dear to the heart of WFA president Julaine Appling. Julaine, herself, was adopted into the Appling family as an infant and frequently lends the beautiful testimony of her forever family to groups and organizations. Julaine states, “Adoption is one of the most wonderful words in the English language. It evokes a strong sense of belonging and being wanted. It describes our relationship as children of God, adopted sons and daughters. (Romans 8:15, Ephesians 1:5). We, as the adopted children of God, have the spirit of adoption in us. In the way of the Father, adoption is a form of redemption, of redeeming something that was lost because of its inherent value to the one doing the adopting. What a beautiful picture of worth, value, love, belonging and security! We have a very tangible illustration of that picture here on Earth in the act of adoption, when a married mother and father choose a fatherless and motherless child to become their own child. A ‘forever family’ is a precious gift to an adopted child.“
