SFLAction: Abortion Blood Money Bought the Wisconsin Supreme Court, Our Fight to Protect the Preborn More Important Than Ever Before


“Millions of dollars cannot stop the Pro-Life Generation from fighting for the safety of future Wisconsinites, and while tonight’s outcome is certainly a setback it’s the beginning of our fight. With the fall of Roe, we knew we would be up against an infinite cash supply of abortion blood money, but our resources and desire to protect the preborn has only grown stronger. Tonight’s outcome doesn’t seal the fate of all future Wisconsinites, and we will be back to ensure pro-life champions take leadership in the state,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLAction President.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (04-04-2023) – With millions of dollars spent on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court race by out of state abortion lobbyists, Students for Life Action (SFLAction) was disappointed in the outcome of tonight’s election. Janet Protasiewicz, a judge who has been soft on crime and vocal on her bias for abortion, will take the seat on the state supreme court bench at the pleasure of corporate abortionists far and wide. The real loser tonight isn’t Kelly, but rather innocent preborn babies who will face a death penalty as Protasiewicz looks to undo years of pro-life laws.

“Life-saving laws are under attack by the abortion lobby in a Post-Roe America,” added Hawkins. “Our top priority is enacting pro-life legislation and preserving laws already on the books – the same laws that some who profit off the business of killing children seek to erase for political expedience.”

In Wisconsin, SFLAction previously responded to Governor Tony Evers calling a special session in the hopes of repealing elective abortion limitations through the state legislature. With a rapid response mobilization, SFLAction was able to persuade legislators into gaveling out the Governor’s special session, but with the Supreme Court seat secured by Protasiewicz, the fate of Wisconsin’s pro-life laws hang in the balance.



SFLAction students worked alongside the pro-life coalition across the state to make direct voter contact and educate Wisconsin residents ahead of this critical vote. Making up one-third of the voting bloc, the Pro-Life Generation will stay on top of Wisconsin’s leaders and fight for the rights of the preborn to be heard.
