Joe Scheidler, founder of the Pro-Life Action League, died Monday morning at age 93.
He entered the pro-life movement half a century ago after his wife Ann dragged him to a rally in downtown Chicago on a Saturday afternoon. Scheidler knew about activism—he had marched with Martin Luther King Jr.—and the Illinois Legislature was debating an abortion legalization bill, but Scheidler wanted to stay home and watch Notre Dame football.
