Pro-life photo of the week: Joe Scheidler

Click to enlarge… 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. Robin brought photographer Wendi Kent to take professional pictures to go with the story, and I was happy to see they posted one […]

Court orders National Organization for Women to pay pro-life activists $63k

NOW vs Scheidler lawsuitOn April 29 a federal appellate court panel deemed it “preposterous” that the National Organization for Women would challenge an invoice submitted by pro-life activists for expenses incurred during a lawsuit brought against them by the pro-abortion feminist group that lasted almost 28 years.

The court ordered NOW to pay defendants Joe Scheidler, Pro-Life Action League, Timothy Murphy, and Andrew Scholberg $63,391.45 – a pittance, really - for costs to successfully defend themselves in the now infamous NOW v. Scheidler anti-trust lawsuit, launched in 1986.

During that time the case received an unprecedented three hearings before the U.S. Supreme Court, with the pro-lifers getting support in the form of amicus briefs from unlikely places, including PETA and Martin Sheen, since the issue was free speech.

Read the history of NOW v. Scheidler here. In a nutshell, quoting the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin:

Those pro-abortion bullies are actually on the defensive

Back in the day abortion proponents had all the mojo and pro-lifers were on the defensive. The photo above, via PBS, is of pro-abortion rally demanding a repeal of pro-life laws in Washington, D.C.,  circa 1971.

At the same time, feminists were pushing the Equal Rights Amendment in all 50 states. The photo below, via illinois.gov, is of feminists writing the names of ERA opponents in pigs’ blood on the floor of the Illinois State Capitol on June 24, 1982…

  • University of MI Students for Life reflects on a sad day in America on August 1, when the HHS mandate went into effect mandating violating our consciences:

    Today, the religious liberties of all Americans have been thrown in the trash. And it’s the same trash can where the 3,300 precious babies that will be legally aborted today will be thrown.

Coming soon, “The best book ever written on abortion”

There is a banner ad at the top of my site offering 35% off pre-orders of the soon-to-be-released book, Abandoned: The Untold Stories of the Abortion Wars, written by Dr. Monica Miller.

My endorsement of Abandoned will be on its back cover, along with the endorsement of several pro-life leaders like Fr. Frank Pavone, Joe Scheidler, David Bereit, Teresa Tomeo, Al Kresta, and best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza, who wrote in the book’s forward:

Quite simply, this is the best book ever written on abortion. Beautifully written, this is about the consequences of Roe v. Wade, as seen through the eyes of one woman, who tells a clear and compelling story with passion but without fanaticism. On a subject that is often heavy and depressing, this is a hard-hitting yet compassionate and moving book. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought such a narrative could be done, only now it has been done.

I couldn’t more highly recommend Abandoned. I couldn’t put the manuscript down once I opened it this winter. In fact, I quoted a compelling section from Abandoned in a post back in February.
