1Relating to: proclaiming January 22nd as “Protect Life Day”.
Whereas, 47 years have elapsed since the infamous January 22, 1973, U.S. 3
Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion for any reason for the full nine 4
months of pregnancy in all of the United States; and
Whereas, it is the first and primary duty of the government to protect its 6
citizens, a role which the Court usurped from the states; and
Whereas, more than 60 million unborn children have been killed by abortions 8
nationally, a human rights abuse unprecedented in American history; and
Whereas, more than 570,000 of Wisconsin's unborn children are lost to 10
Wisconsin families, and their skills and talents are lost to the state of Wisconsin; and
Whereas, countless mothers, fathers, families, and society as a whole have 12
suffered devastating consequences from this wholesale destruction of human life; 13
Whereas, the future of our state and country depends on protection of the 15
weakest members of the human family; now, therefore, be it
1Resolved by the assembly, the senate concurring, That
the Wisconsin 2
Legislature hereby proclaims January 22nd as “Protect Life Day” throughout the 3
state of Wisconsin and commends this observance to all of our citizens.
