.- Pro-Life Wisconsin is asking NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin to retract and correct false and defamatory statements published and aired about the organization and its executive director, Peggy Hamill.

The statements expressly name Pro-Life Wisconsin and Peggy Hamill as attendees and celebrants of a July 28 event in Milwaukee organized to commemorate Paul Hill’s 1994 murder of a Florida abortionist, including a reenactment of the day of the murder and a memorial honoring Hill. 

“The statements that I was present or participated in the event as well as their interpretation that I or Pro-Life Wisconsin approve of or condone murder are totally false and defamatory,” said Hamill.

“Pro-Life Wisconsin is a peaceful, prayerful organization that calls on God’s grace to change hearts and minds toward an unconditional love for His most precious pre-born children. We oppose violence against the pre-born, and we oppose violence against those who perform abortions or participate in the abortion industry.”

According to a press release issued by the pro-life group, Hamill and her husband were near the abortion mill earlier in the day, their personal van parked around on a side street, praying the rosary on behalf of the babies, as is their custom every Saturday. They intentionally left the area well in advance, to avoid the re-enactment event, and by the time it was scheduled, 11 a.m., they were miles away.

“Planned Parenthood even went so far as to shoot a video of me praying the rosary well before the reenactment event began and then splice it into their video of the event to make it appear as if I were a participant,” said Hamill. “Such action cannot be passed off as a mistake, but rather a calculated effort to smear my name and that of my organization.
