Supporting Women's Care Centers
Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our surrounding communities. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has marked the 25th anniversary year of Evangeli vitae by launching “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service” — inviting parishes to communicate resources to pregnant moms and families in need.
St. Mary’s Visitation parish has a long history of support for local women's care centers, generously donating supplies, clothing, diapers and money to support the pro life efforts for women and families in need.
Due to COVID restrictions, SMV Respect Life Ministry is unable to host baby showers, diaper drives and baby bottle change collections at this time. Instead, we encourage you to donate generously to the organizations who rely heavily on our support in order to perform their wonderful pro life ministry:

Women's Support Center
Women's Support Center is a very busy Catholic, pro-life crisis pregnancy help center on 21st and Wisconsin between Marquette University and Planned Parenthood serving approximately 150-200 women a month. All services they offer are 100% free and include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling against abortion, post-abortion counseling, teaching natural family planning, breast feeding classes and much more. They additionally provide material support through their “Baby Store” where women receive free supplies from diapers and wipes to clothing, formula, blankets and more.
A major focus and mission for the center is the promotion of chastity. They believe that birth control is a root cause of abortion and brings great physical as well as spiritual harm to our whole society. At the WSC they effectively teach about the physical and spiritual harms of birth control, the importance of chastity and the beauty and sacredness of marriage - about 80% of those who go to them get off birth control and 65% commit to chastity!
Please help them continue their life-saving mission by clicking here https://www.wscmil.org/donations/ and donating today!

Virtual Baby Bottle Campaign to support PLW's
"Helping Both Pregnancy Support Program"
Crisis pregnancies happen all the time whether there is a pandemic or not, but especially now, women need a supportive community to choose life for their preborn baby. Sadly, many women are vulnerable in a crisis pregnancy to pursue an abortion.
PLW’s Helping Both: Pregnancy Support Program works with local Pregnancy Resource Centers to save the life of the baby and heal the hearts of hurting moms. Unemployment has affected families and limited their access to childcare and education. It has stretched family resources and their ability to pay rent and/or their monthly bills. Our Helping Both Program fills the gap for families and gives the hope that moms in crisis pregnancies so desperately need. Your financial support means you are there for moms and their babies after birth too. Through the Helping Both Program, families have received food, gas, baby clothes, rent assistance, appliances, and financial assistance for their education. Your generosity in this virtual baby bottle campaign provides the financial resources to continue supporting families in need. Please give generously today!
Purchase your Choose Life Wisconsin plate, and save lives from abortion. Choose Life license plates have been available to Wisconsin motorists since late October 2017. Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Family Council partnered to underwrite all the administrative costs of Choose Life Wisconsin, which allows us to give every penny that comes from the sale of the plates to Wisconsin’s incredible pregnancy care centers.
With over 1,500 of these plates on cars in the Badger State, sales have resulted in a total of nearly $100,000 which has been granted to over twenty-five Wisconsin pregnancy resource centers in a little over two years.
If you would like to be a part of the mission to save lives, get your Choose Life Wisconsin license plate today! For more information call Pro-Life Wisconsin at 262-796-1111 ext. 110.
