Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month campaign
To the Editor:
Our governor recently proclaimed April as Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month.
At the courthouse there was a display of pinwheels, with a sign that stated, "Each Pinwheel represents One of the 315 Oneida County babies born in 2018. These children deserve to grow up in a safe, stable, and nurturing Environment. We must Protect our most Precious gift of all...Our children."
That is all very true, but what is incredibly sad, is that in Wisconsin many of those most "Precious gifts" are not given a safe, stable, nurturing "environment." Instead, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, on an average, every day 15 of them are destroyed by abortion.
That is equal to over 5,475 of "Our Children" in Wisconsin, whose lives are ended in a year by a procedure our governor equates with having a tonsillectomy!
