This photo comes by an interesting route. Pro-choice author Robin Marty was in Chicago yesterday doing research for a story, and part of that process involved interviewing pro-life hero Joe Scheidler.
As an aside, I’ve become acquainted with Robin over the course of time, and I love Ann and Joe (and, in fact, we are now sort of related, since my daughter and son-in-law just named their newest addition Scheidler Richard Peter Moore, after Joe).
So I took a day trip yesterday from the southwest side to the north side to say hi to everybody, which was enjoyable.
Joe is a pro-life icon. If I could emulate anyone’s temperament, it would be his - polite to all, kind, funny, deeply committed Christian and family man, and an unswervingly strong and persuasive pro-life apologist. This was a great photo that I think captured all that.
