Pro-Life Wisconsin - Marathon County Affiliate
Founded on Principle
In 1992, almost 20 years after Roe v. Wade, a new statewide pro-life organization was formed in Wisconsin. The vision for this new organization - to achieve total protection for all preborn children in Wisconsin - was shared by dedicated and seasoned pro-lifers who realized the pro-life movement needed to re-focus on principle.
Pro-Life Wisconsin is that organization
Today, Pro-Life Wisconsin has grown to become a powerful statewide voice for the total protection message, as well as an agent of cultural renewal in Wisconsin. With local county affiliates throughout the state, and a legislative team advocating at the State Capitol, we are the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves.
Based in Brookfield, Pro-Life Wisconsin represents more than 30.000 families across the state. We are here to serve pro-lifers like YOU!

The president, Judie Brown has to say: "Pro-Life Wisconsin has consistently defended our preborn brothers and sisters without exception, compromise or apology! It is an honor to support their renewed efforts to focus attention on the truth: every preborn citizen is a person!"
The Total Protection Message
Working to end all abortion
Ending abortion - all abortion - is the ultimate goal of the pro-life movement. Reaching that goal has been elusive, particularly in the legislative realm. Politics by nature involves "the art of compromise", but what exactly can we as pro-lifers compromise without giving up the fundamental principles of our movement?
If we can't save all the babies, shouldn't we work to save the ones we can?
Some pro-lifers argue we have to be "political realists". They argue that exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother are necessary to pass pro-life laws.
There are many ways in which pro-lifers can further a pro-life agenda incrementally, but we can never compromise the life of a single baby by explicitly sanctioning his or her destruction. To do so would undermine the very foundation of the pro-life movement.
What is Total Protection?
Acheiving total protection means legislatively prohibiting the killing of preborn children - at any stage of development, for any reasons. Achieving total protection means all preborn children are equally protected under law without discrimination - a condition called "personhood".
What it Really Means to be Pro-Life
Ultimately, it's pro-lifers themselves who set the standard for what it means to be "pro-life". As more elected officials claim to be pro-life, and then fail to stand for each and every one of our preborn brothers and sisters, the term "pro-life" becomes ambigious. Meanwhile, the "pro-choice" leaders never show a willingness to compromise. "Pro-choice" means unequivocal support of abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy
