Joe Scheidler, the founder and national director of the Pro-Life Action League, based in Chicago, will speak at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on Respect Life Sunday, from 4-5 p.m., after the National Life Chain event.

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 48 or the 50 states, and motivated many who have become leaders in the fight to restore the sanctity of life. Scheidler is the author of Closed: 99 Ways to Stop Abortion and Racketeer for Life, a memoir of his pro-life career.
