On Mother’s Day, pro-abortion radicals launched a firebomb attack on the offices of Wisconsin Family Action, one of the nearly 40 state organizations hosted by Family Policy Alliance.
Craig DeRoche, President and CEO of Family Policy Alliance, released this statement in support of our allies at Wisconsin Family Action:
“Our dear friends in Wisconsin were targeted because they are effective. For more than three decades, they have stood at the helm of protecting life and families in the Badger State. And we know that they will continue that fight with even more courage and conviction following this attack.
“So we press on in the fight for equal justice for all. Across the nation, Wisconsin Family Action is one of forty state organizations in our alliance of state Family Policy Councils who are preparing for American life after Roe is overturned. If Roe is overturned as we hope, our work is just beginning. Abortion will become an issue that every state has to decide for itself, and states will look to Family Policy Councils to lead the way in protecting life. With God’s help, our movement is ready. No matter what attacks may come our way, we know there is life After Roe.”
America is Watching
The aggressive pro-abortion activists invading church services, destroying pregnancy centers and firebombing Wisconsin Family Action are on the wrong side of history.
Their pursuit of terminating the lives of the preborn and devaluing the lives of women and girls through sexualizing them in kindergarten and stripping of them of their gender by high school is on full parade.
These actions (and the ideology behind them) demonstrate the extent to which some will go to achieve their ends and Americans are paying attention.
Do they identify with a small vocal, violent minority who would invade church services and destroy pregnancy centers and reputable nonprofits?
Or do they identify with life, responsibility, free speech and respect for the law and property?
It would seem that most people identify with the latter rather than the former because destroying faith-based nonprofit organizations and disrupting sacred religious practices is beyond the pale for most Americans and something they’re just not going to stand for.
Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, put it best in her statement yesterday:
“Americans see through the hypocrisy of the left. The violence needs to stop and stop now. It’s not the answer to any question or any problem. Just because the liberals don’t get their way, doesn’t give them license to threaten bodily harm or to burn and destroy.”
“Wisconsin has had enough of this kind of terror condoned by current state and national leaders. But we are still standing. We still support freedom. We love our republic and care for our neighbors. We will repair our offices, remain on the job, and build an even stronger grassroots effort. We will not back down. We will not stop doing what we are doing. Too much is at stake.”
We stand with and are praying for Wisconsin Family Action!
If you want to help Wisconsin Family Action in their continued stand for life even as they sort through the rubble and destruction in their midst today please visit them HERE. They need your prayers, encouragement and support.

Wisconsin Family Action is one of 40 state groups allied with Family Policy Alliance.
A Wisconsin judge says a work-from-home photographer does not have to comply with city and state “public accommodations” laws that might have forced her to photograph same-sex weddings.
“This is a huge win for free speech in Wisconsin,” said Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action. “No one should be threatened with punishment for having views that the government doesn’t favor.”
Earlier this year Amy Lawson, a professional photographer and blogger who works out of her Madison home, filed what is known as a “pre-enforcement challenge” lawsuit against the City of Madison and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, alleging that the city’s public accommodations ordinance and the state’s public accommodations law prohibit her from conducting her business, Amy Lynn Photography Studio, according to the dictates of her conscience and beliefs. Lawson argued the ordinance and law even force her to use her creative expression in support of activities she doesn’t agree with, including same-sex marriage and abortion.
Dane County Circuit Court Judge Richard Neiss determined in a court hearing in the case Amy Lynn Photography Studio v. City of Madison that he would issue an order that declares Lawson and her home-based business are not subject to the city’s public accommodations ordinance or the state’s public accommodations law. Both the state and the city agreed to this resolution.
“What this decision means,” Appling explained, “is that creative professionals in Wisconsin and in Madison, those who, like Amy, don’t have storefronts, have the freedom to determine what ideas they will promote using their artistic talents. In other words, the City of Madison and the State of Wisconsin can’t punish these professionals for exercising their freedom of speech artistically, even if the city or state disagrees with what they are saying.”
