In recent weeks, it has come to my attention that there are many rumors milling about on how Wisconsin Right to Life views certain issues.
The most common rumor is that Wisconsin Right to Life favors exceptions to abortion for rape, incest and health of the mother.
This is patently false.
Wisconsin Right to Life has always valued the lives of children conceived from rape and incest and knows that a “health” exception means virtually any abortion.
I hope this clarification on where we stand will be helpful in answering any concerns you may have. We also hope you will use this information with your pro-life friends to correct rumors about the principled stance of Wisconsin Right to Life.
