Real Pro-life work

These folks are getting at the real tap-root of abortion. I do not believe we will ever successfully overcome the abortion problem until we get at the contraception problem. And the contraception problem is not a legal question in my mind; it is a mind-set problem. Sex is for babies. If you don't want babies, what are you doing?

Pro-life group protests birth control ruling

Members of Pro-LifeWisconsin, along with other anti-abortion activists across the state, protested the 43rd anniversary of the Griswold v. Connecticut decision.

Each June 7, protesters gather nationwide to draw attention to the Griswold decision that prevented states from banning birth control between consenting adults and also introduced the "right to privacy" as legal doctrine.

In prayer vigils or protests from La Crosse to Appleton, men and women encouraged people not to use birth control pills, including emergency contraception, for its role in terminating life.

"It is crucial to mark June 7 with a symbolic time of silence to memorialize everything we as Americans have lost," said Peggy Hamill, state director for Pro-Life Wisconsin. "The deadly connection between contraception and abortion is all too real. The birth control pill acts to end a newly formed human life."
