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.
