Today about 100 Pro Life Wisconsin supporters gathered on the State Street Steps of the WI Capitol, commemorating the sorrowful 40th anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that has resulted in well over 50 million abortions in the US since that time.
You can view more lovely pictures of this event, even of hecklers handcuffed and led away by the Capitol Police, at Syte Reitz’s blog.

Fr John Sasse, warm and unmistakably a priest, led the rosary. Holding the flag is Curt Jacobsen,who is Knights of Columbus District Deputy. Fr Sasse is also a very dedicated Chaplain for this wonderful organization.
Pro-life Wisconsin affirms that spiritual warfare is necessary if we are to prevail against abortion.
Jan 22 is the actual date of the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v Wade that legalized abortion throughout America, and the US Bishops have called for a day of prayer and penance (such as fasting).
Taking down the Pilgrim Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a 3rd class relic that was touched to St Juan Diego’s holy tilma. The Pilgrim Image of Our Lady is a ministry of the Servants of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The special pro life resonance of the image is that Mary appeared to St Juan Diego pregnant.
Pro-abortion progressives, also mindful of the 40th anniversary, chalked some messages in favor of Roe v Wade, which they identify with “women’s rights”. Some rosary pray-ers found that snow is effective for chalk removal.
After, there was a great potluck and a great speaker about Planned Parenthood’s agenda, over at St Patrick’s Church on E Main St.
They are loved.
