MADISON -- In response to plans by University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC) to perform second-trimester abortions, all are invited to a prayer and protest rally outside the Madison Surgery Center, 1 S. Park St., Madison, at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8.

breaking news logoThe demonstration, sponsored by Madison Vigil for Life, is scheduled to last one hour, but participants are invited to witness and pray for as long as desired. Unlike other Vigil for Life and 40 Days for Life endeavors, signs will be allowed. For parents intending to bring young children, be aware that it is possible some groups joining the demonstration may bring graphic signs with images of aborted babies.

According to a January 6 press release from the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), the recently exposed UWHC plans would create a full-service second-trimester abortion practice at the Madison Surgery Center, a joint venture of UWHC, UW Medical Foundation, and Meriter Hospital.

MADISON — Recently, it seemed that some in the Diocese of Madison felt that our own Bishop Robert C. Morlino was a bull’s-eye.  

For a long time, we sat by not responding, just shaking our heads.  Then, we realized that we needed to do something to show our good bishop how much we appreciate his willingness to guide the people of our diocese in the truths of the Catholic faith, as instituted by Christ and handed down to the bishops.
