Wisconsin Right to Life Day - Sept. 9, 2018
Gov. Scott Walker Proclaims “Wisconsin Right to Life Day”
Speaking at Wisconsin Right to Life’s 50th Anniversary Gala in Milwaukee on April 13, 2018, Wisconsin’s pro-life Governor, Scott Walker, presented Executive Director Heather Weininger with a framed proclamation declaring Sunday, September 9, 2018, as Wisconsin Right to Life Day in our state.
In part, the proclamation reads:
“WHEREAS, 50 years have elapsed since Wisconsin Right to Life was originally formed under the name Wisconsin Citizens Concerned for the Unborn on September 9, 1968; and WHEREAS, Wisconsin Right to Life has established itself as the preeminent right-to-life organization in Wisconsin and for the last 50 years has been saving lives by changing hearts and minds to favor life . . . NOW, THEREFORE, I, Scott Walker, Governor of the State of Wisconsin, do hereby proclaim Sunday, September 9, 2018, as WISCONSIN RIGHT TO LIFE DAY throughout the State of Wisconsin, and I commend this observance to all of our citizens.”
Our thanks to Gov. Walker for honoring our organization in this very special way!
