Marsy’s Law Amendment Referendum on Wisconsin’s Statewide Ballot

Marsy’s Law Amendment Referendum on Wisconsin’s Statewide Ballot

On Tuesday, April 7, every Wisconsin ballot will have a referendum that would amend our state constitution related to the rights of victims of crime, commonly referred to as Marsy’s Law. According to the web site for Marsy’s Law for All, the law is named for Marsalee (Marsy) Nicholas, a “beautiful, vibrant University of California Santa Barbara student, who was stalked and killed by her ex-boyfriend in 1983.”

This referendum is not an issue with a clear conservative or liberal position or a clear right or wrong vote. Good people disagree on this issue. For us, it is outside of our mission which deals with marriage, family, life and religious freedom. However, in an effort to help voters understand the referendum and make the best personal decision they can, we are providing resources from three perspectives: neutral, in support of, and in opposition to.  We believe this is the best way we can help  voters on this particular ballot referendum.
