Joe Scheidler is the founder of the Pro-Life Action League of Chicago, Illinois
Joe Scheidler was 89 years young when he did this interview last year. He became a pro-life activist after the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973 with his wife Anne. Eventually, his son Eric and other family members joined him.
The National Organization for Women falsely accused Joe Scheidler and others of racketeering in federal court. They won, and Scheidler appealed all the way to the Supreme Court. In 2003, the Supreme Court overturned that lawsuit.
Then NOW sued again in federal court under a different issue. Again Mr. Scheidler lost in federal court and won before the Supreme Court in 2006.
Mr. Scheidler is still involved in pro-life work, and the Pro-Life Action League just hosted the Face the Truth Tour this past July. The next scheduled Face the Truth Tour is in September, 2018. In addition, the Pro-Life Action League does sidewalk counseling, prayer vigils, and other activities to help save babies and help parents.
Pro-life activist Monica Miller, PhD (third from left in the photo), was recently released from jail for participating in the Red Rose Rescue, a new method of rescuing preterm babies. Mary Wagner of Toronto, Canada inspired American pro-lifers to enter an abortion mill and offer red roses to mothers in the waiting room.
Police arrested Monica Migliorino Miller, Will Goodman, Matthew Connolly, Patrice Woodworth and Robert “Doc” Kovaly after they refused to leave the abortion mill on December 2, 2017. Dr. Miller described her court case and subsequent efforts to help mothers at an abortion mill in Michigan.
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led,like sheep to the slaughter.” ~ General George Washington’s address to the Army, March 15, 1783
Recently, Judge Carol Carol Bagley Amon ruled in favor of 13 pro-life activists who counseled expectant mothers and preached at the Choices Women’s Medical Center, an abortion mill in Jamaica, NY. Judge Amon heard the case in Albany, NY after then-Attorney General Eric Scheiderman filed suit against them last year. Attorney Roger Gannam from Liberty Counsel talked about this case on today’s podcast.
We often take our freedoms for granted until they are taken away from us. There is an old saying that “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” Thank goodness for the vigilance of law practices like Liberty Counsel, the Thomas More Law Society, and Thomas More Legal Center and others who help pro-life activists.
Otherwise, we might end up like Canada, England, and Europe, where it is difficult, if not impossible, to offer help and hope to unwed mothers at abortion mills. A Canadian pro-lifer once told me you can’t even wear a pro-life badge or pin if you walk down the same street as an abortion mill in Toronto, Canada.
Therefore, we must continue to fight for the right to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, namely unborn children. Even though it can be tough and it requires personal sacrifice, we must continue to fight for the right to life of all persons, both born and unborn.
After we talked about the case, Roger and I talked about sidewalk counseling and my volunteer efforts outside of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill here in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Roger mentioned the case of a child who was saved when a pro-life activist reminded the expectant mother that her child had ten fingers and ten toes just like her. Those words haunted the mother as she went into the abortion mill, causing her to change her mind. Eventually she returned and let the sidewalk counselors know their efforts had saved her baby’s life.
Towards the end of the podcast, I asked Roger what we pro-life activists could do to avoid prosecution for trying to help expectant mothers. Of course, we need to be civil and polite.
But we also need to video record a general view of what’s going on, and not aim the camera at any one person to avoid false accusations of harassment. If it comes to going to court, the recording will back us up in court, he said.
The most important thing is to pray the rosary every day for our salvation, for our nation, President Trump, and for the end of abortion. Before we go to abortion mills, we need to pray that God will touch the hearts of all involved, and grant us peace, and bring an end to the civil war of abortion.
Matt Yonke from the Pro-Life Action League of Chicago, Illinois spoke on today’s program. Matt described last week’s Face the Truth Tour in the Chicagoland, Illinois area. He said these pictures are designed to show the humanity of the victims of abortion.
For several years, the Pro-Life Action League has shown pictures of aborted babies in public in Chicago. As with other social movements, the pro-life movement shows pictures to demonstrate the reality of abortion and how it affects children.
Did you know that drawn pictures of shackles and other aspects of slavery helped end it? Many social movements use pictures as a way to help others see what they don’t want to see.
Matt talked about how these photos have saved lives and helped move parents to repent of their crimes against their children. The Catechism of the Council of Trent teaches us that sin leaves a scar on our souls that only penance can erase.
That’s why when we do bad things, our conscience tells us we must make it up to God. Praying the rosary is a great way to do that, and will give us peace of mind and help us to draw closer to God. That’s why we should pray the rosary every day in penance and that God will help end abortion.
Even though sometimes pictures of aborted children upset people, it’s important to talk about abortion because the media and pulpits won’t. We can’t solve our problems without discussing them, and showing pictures of aborted children helps start conversations that need to happen.
Matt mentioned a visit to Belgium, a formerly Christian nation that no longer sees abortion as a sin. Perhaps if they were able to have a Face the Truth Tour, they might return to their former views on abortion.
Is Communism dead? If not, how is it affecting the USA?
On today’s program, JR Nyquist, author of Origins of the 4th World War, discussed Communism and the current political climate in the USA. Former President Obama has now set up an opposition government 2 miles away from the White House. The former President is said to have 30,000 activists at his disposal, and 250 offices around the country. Their goal: to unseat President Trump and have him impeached. Will they succeed?
When patriotic Austrians prayed the rosary and asked God to drive the Communists out, they packed up and left in 1955. When Communists attempted to take over Brazil in the 1960s, patriotic Brazilians prayed the rosary to stop them, and it worked. When Communists attempted to take over the Philippines in the 1980s, praying the rosary stopped them.
Pray the rosary every day for the USA and President Trump.
Belgium has had legalized euthanasia for years. How has euthanasia affected Belgium? In this episode, Producer Kevin Dunn talks about his new documentary, “Vulnerable: The Euthanasia Deception, and how it has affected Belgium. What will happen here as euthanasia becomes increasingly legalized?
On today’s episode, I talked about aspects of immigration, taxation, and healthcare that you may not have heard before. Why should we care about immigration? Why don’t churches talk about abortion? What is the best way to lower healthcare costs? Tune in and find out!
Thomas Levy, MD, JD is an internationally renowned expert on the usage of Vitamin C for heart disease, cancer, and other ailments. At the end of this show, he also discusses his protocol for Lyme disease.
On Friday February 10, 2017, the US Supreme Court heard the case for President Trump’s travel ban. That’s why I invited Herb Titus, a noted constitutional attorney, to speak on today’s program. We discussed how the Founding Fathers viewed the Muslim religion, and religious freedom. We also discussed the efforts to block the travel ban. Let’s all pray for President Trump and Vice-President Trump and their efforts to make America Great Again.
