Joe Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League to Speak in Winona
Save the Date - Sunday, October 1st: Joe Scheidler, the founder and national director of the Pro-Life Action League, based in Chicago, will be speaking at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on Respect Life Sunday, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, directly after the National Life Chain event. He will be speaking on the spiritual dimension of the pro-life movement and the privilege of being called to defend and protect life.
Dubbed "The Green Beret of the Pro-Life Movement," by columnist Patrick Buchanan and known among pro-lifers as “the Godfather of Pro-Life Activism,” Scheidler has been featured on hundreds of radio and TV programs, has spoken in forty-eight of the fifty states, and motivated many who have become leaders in the fight to restore the sanctity of life. A free-will donation will be taken.
