Eric Scheidler

Executive Director, Prolife Action League: Is prolife presence in front of an abortion facility having an impact?  Eric talks about his work and the impact it is having on the abortion industry.  He also recounts the reason why his father Joe Scheidler founded this organization in 1980.  From Prolife Action League’s website:  “Joe first got involved in the pro-live movement in 1972, when at the urging of his wife Ann he took the family to a pro-life leafleting day in downtown Chicago. A picture of a baby aborted late in pregnancy reminded him of his son Eric’s baby picture, and the abortion issue became personal for him. Shortly after the Supreme Court legalized abortion in Roe v. Wade, Joe became a full-time pro-life activist.”
