As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, please remember that of all the gifts you give this Christmas, none is more precious than the gift of life you give by supporting Pro-Life Wisconsin. You can make that gift of life by clicking here to give a much-needed tax-deductible donation.
In just nine short days, Baby Zion (pictured) will celebrate his first Christmas. But believe it or not, this beautiful bundle of joy almost didn’t make it. Zion was scheduled to die at a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood abortion center.
Fortunately, Pro-Life Wisconsin was on the sidewalk that day to bring Zion’s parents the hope needed to bring their little guy into the world. But the support for Zion’s family didn’t end there. Pro-Life Wisconsinites met his parents at a crisis pregnancy center for a free ultrasound and counseling, threw a baby shower for the family, and one PLW supporter even offered the dad seasonal employment!
Baby Zion’s safe arrival is truly one of the highlights of this past year. But he’s not the only baby celebrating Christmas for the first time due to Pro-Life Wisconsin’s efforts.
- PLW efforts spared 125 babies from late-term abortion at the Madison Surgery Center in 2010.
- A PLW billboard campaign kept endangered babies safe by directing more than 500 calls to PLW’s exclusive Option Line phone number that connects women facing crisis pregnancies with support and resources in their communities.
- PLW provided material and logistical support as well as volunteers to assist 40 Days for Life campaigns across the state—campaigns that saved dozens of babies in Wisconsin.
That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news: without a boost in contributions, the economic downturn will make it extremely difficult for us to ensure that EVERY possible “Baby Zion” is saved in 2011.
We’ve come too far to let up now. From the landmark victory at the Madison Surgery Center to this fall’s historic elections to the development of a statewide network of grassroots pro-life activists, we’ve got the momentum. This is a crossroads, a watershed moment, a once-in-a-generation opportunity to stop abortion in Wisconsin. If we miss this opportunity, it could be years before we get another chance to roll back the culture of death.
When we’ve asked you to take to the sidewalks, you’ve done it. When we’ve asked you to contact elected officials about critical legislation, you’ve done it. Today we ask you to help us with a donation to ensure these difficult times don’t reduce our capacity to save lives and protect families.
There’s no better time than this season of perpetual hope to give the gift of life. And to sweeten the deal, your donation to Pro-Life Wisconsin Education Task Force on or before December 31can be written off as a charitable contribution for your 2010 taxes.
We’re working harder than ever before to defend each and every innocent life. Please click here to keep the ball rolling!
