Update On the Situation With the Preborn In Wisconsin

Complimentary Story
June 2024 

   In January of this year, Robin Vos, Republican Speaker of the Assembly – along with 39 Republican legislators introduced AB975 which declared you can murder the preborn in Wisconsin up to 14 weeks. Understand — nearly 95% of all abortions committed in Wisconsin are done by 14 weeks.

   The bill was introduced on January 19th, and the public hearing was held three days later on January 22nd. Vos and the others in cahoots with him clearly did not want there to be time for anyone to organize and bring opposition to the bill. They had a full a vote by the legislature on January 25th, passing the measure. 

   A total of 53 Republicans — led by Robin Vos — voted to murder 95% of the preborn.

   What irony that the Republicans — who told us they couldn’t defend the preborn for nearly 50 years because of Roe v. Wade — held their hearing on their bill to murder the preborn on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade — January 22nd.

   AB975 is meant to create a referendum so people can vote whether to murder the preborn or not. The Republicans hid behind the Supreme Court for nearly 50 years while they allowed the slaughter of the preborn to continue. Now they want to hide behind the mob and have the people vote. Understand, a majority of people should never be allowed to vote to murder another group of people.  

   About 40 of us who oppose the murder of the preborn gathered at Room 417N in Wisconsin’s capitol building to speak against the AB975. We were given 3 minutes each. The pro-life legislators said awful things. They all falsely stated that Wisconsin’s anti-abortion statute 940.04 was no longer in force. An absolute lie. It is still in force to this very day.

   When I testified against the murder, I was interrupted by a loud flaming pro-abort legislator who yelled out loud because I kept referring to the killing of the preborn as “murder.” [Here is the url to listen to my testimony before the committee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1mTBWwibTs ]

   Two Republican assemblymen — Chuck Wichgers and Janel Brandtjen — actually took time to come to the hearing to address their fellow Republicans and publicly oppose the bill. We give thanks to God for them.

   After the committee hearing on AB975, we talked with some of the Republican legislators. Two of them invoked their Christianity as a reason for supporting the bill to murder the preborn. One said he even sought the counsel of his pastor (he attends a Bible-believing church) – and said to his surprise that his pastor counseled him to vote for the AB975. Utter evil.

   Because of the weakness displayed by the Republicans and knowing the government officials were not going to uphold our state anti-abortion law 940.04 – the Affiliated deathcamp reopened on Tuesday, March 5th. We were there to speak up for the little ones. All of the deathcamps in Wisconsin have now reopened and are murdering the preborn.

   Innocent blood is a terrible thing for which the Scriptures are repeatedly clear – God judges nations. America is awash in innocent blood. When it comes to abortion we are talking about innocent blood being shed. We’re talking about bloodguilt.

   Innocent blood beckons the just judgment of God upon nations. 

   God will bring His judgment for all this shedding of innocent blood in America — and here in Wisconsin. It may not come on Friday, but it will come. Even Thomas Jefferson had to utter this fact when he said “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

   Here is a sermon I preached in January entitled: Blood in Wisconsin – 2024. The url is:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=damfrliLqA0&t=325s wherein I address AB975. 

   I pray it is a blessing to your heart and mind. We must quit compromising with murder. As His people, we must uphold the law of God and not waver.
