Read the proclamation:
WHEREAS; 40 years have elapsed since the infamous January 22, 1973, U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion for any reason for the full nine months of pregnancy in all of the United States; and
WHEREAS; it is the first and primary duty of the government to protect its citizens, a role which the Court usurped from the states; and
WHEREAS; more than 55 million unborn children have expired from abortions nationally, a human rights abuse unprecedented in American history; and
WHEREAS; more than 540,000 of Wisconsin’s unborn children are lost to Wisconsin families, and their skills and talents are lost to the state of Wisconsin; and
WHEREAS; countless mothers, fathers, families, and society as a whole have suffered devastating consequences from this wholesale destruction of human life; and
WHEREAS; the future of our state and country depend on protection of the weakest members of the human family;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Scott Walker, Governor of the State of Wisconsin, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, January 22, 2013, as
throughout the state of Wisconsin and I commend this observance to all of our citizens.
