Totally banning abortion makes some people uncomfortable. We’ve been told time and again there are unique situations for which abortion is the best option. If a lie is repeated often enough, people begin to accept it as truth.

Pro-Life Wisconsin was formed 18 years ago to provide a voice for thousands of pro-lifers across Wisconsin – pro-lifers who believed in a higher standard, pro-lifers who wanted to see contraception’s link to abortion addressed, pro-lifers who weren’t afraid to take a stand.
As our Victory Fund Political Action Committee prepared to release the list of endorsed candidates for the 2010 fall election, we were humbled to realize our endorsement list totaled 96 – the highest number ever! Click here to view the list of endorsed candidates.
But do these candidates defend their 100% pro-life convictions?
A recent Wisconsin Public Radio clip focused on Republicans’ effort to unseat Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker in the Wausau area. The Republican candidates are unabashedly 100% pro-life during this interview, even when pushed by the reporter. To listen to the WPR clip, click here (the story is titled, “GOP state senate candidates target long-time incumbent” and is dated 8/30/10).
We are proud to support candidates who stand up for all the babies and who are not afraid to articulate their pro-life convictions. We are proud to create a political culture where people do not hide their pro-life views or simply talk about regulating the practice of abortion but when under pressure, do not bend in defending EVERY baby’s right to live.
Wisconsin’s 2010 general election primary is Tuesday, September 14. Vote pro-life!
