Joseph Scheidler

Joseph M. Scheidler (born September 7, 1927) is an American pro-life activist and the founder of the Pro-Life Action League. He is known for his work in front of abortion clinics to stop women from having abortions, and for teaching other people to work against legal abortion. Scheidler was the chief defendant in the NOW v. Scheidler litigation, filed in a 1986. A Federal Court decided against him and in favor of the National Organization for Women in 1998. He was found guilty of interstate racketeering, assessed fines and sentenced to prison. This decision was unanimously overturned by the US Supreme Court in 2003, but NOW took the case under a slightly different issue before another lower Federal Court, and it was again decided against Scheidler. However, this was again brought to the Supreme Court which again unanimously decided in his favor in 2006. The Court granted him damages against NOW. Scheidler lives in Chicago with his wife Ann, and has seven children and numerous grandchildren, many of whom are involved in his organization. Provided by Wikipedia
