“Sanctity of Human Life” Pro-Life Events Across Wisconsin

In the upcoming weeks, churches, pro-life ministries and pregnancy resource centers around Wisconsin and throughout the country will be gathering to celebrate the sanctity of human life and mourning the loss of precious life since Roe v. Wade (Jan. 22, 1973) by holding events such as special church services, events with a pro-life message, or prayer vigils in local communities.

Inclusion on this list of events does not imply theological endorsement of any denomination. Information is provided as a courtesy because the Bible speaks clearly about the value of life, and on this one issue many Christian denominations agree that life is ordained by and a gift from God and should be celebrated as such.

Below is a list of some of the upcoming pro-life events happening in Wisconsin, alphabetical by city, which are celebrating the sanctity of human life and/or mourning Roe v. Wade. The loss of life is a great tragedy in our country; and we encourage you to in some way celebrate the value of life as God ordains and  acknowledge this loss, whether it is by a time of personal reflection, prayer, or attending a pro-life event.
