Pro-Life Wisconsin

The constitution guarantees the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Nowhere does it exclude the unborn. The unborn are children of God and citizens of this country and should be equally protected under the constitution.  Pray to end abortion and euthanasia.  For more info on pro-life issues contact Pro-Life Wisconsin (877-463-7945). 

History has shown that it is always the dispossessed, those whose lives are easily overlooked, who are subjected to the worst abuses of scientific research. So-called ‘spare’ human embryos are particularly vulnerable to this kind of moral blindness because so many people seem to have difficulty identifying with their humanity. But only a purely utilitarian ethic would measure the value of an individual’s life on the basis of how useful he or she may be to others. When we treat human lives as disposable commodities, we inflict harms on our human community that no scientific advances can cure. Only by respecting the inherent value of human life from conception to natural death can we build a culture worthy of the supreme dignity of human life.
—Cardinal Francis George,
“Statement on Stem Cell Research” (Aug. 3, 2001)

Foster Care Families Needed

For various reasons we have children and adults that need to be placed in caring homes for a length of time. There is a foster care reimbursement for foster families, but that good family environment is priceless to the individuals receiving this service. By increasing the number of foster families in , two things are accomplished. First, by providing the best, most appropriate services in our own communities to people that need foster care. And secondly, this reduces financial burden on the county because alternatives to foster care are much more expensive to the taxpayers. For more information, please contact the coordinator at 715-839-6830  or Roy Sargeant, Department of Human Services Director (715-831-5824).
