40 Days for Life Madison Kick-Off Event – Monday, 9/25 – Event Reminder

Dear Friends of Vigil for Life –

Our 2017 40 Days for Life Kick-off event is at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 25  (that’s tomorrow!) at Holy Name Heights (a.k.a. Bishop O’Connor Center).  You won’t want to miss this because our guest speaker is Eric Scheidler!!

Eric Scheidler is the Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League, founded in 1980

by his father, veteran pro-life leader Joe Scheidler, to fight abortion through non-violent

direct action. He is the oldest of the seven Scheidler children.

 

Eric holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois and a master’s degree in

English studies from the University of Georgia. From 1998 to 2002, he served as assistant

director of The GIFT Foundation, an organization devoted to enriching Christian

marriage.

 

Since August 2007, Eric has headed the grassroots pro-life group Fox Valley Families

Against Planned Parenthood, which is dedicated to shutting down the largest abortion

facility in the Midwest, opened in Aurora, Illinois under a cloud of deception and

controversy. He consults regularly with activists across the country on fighting Planned

Parenthood at the local level.

 

In 2012, Eric co-directed a nationwide series of Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies

in opposition to the Obamacare HHS Mandate, which forces employer health plans to

provide free contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs. He continues to work with the

hundreds of local leaders recruited for that effort on other pro-life initiatives, including

the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, held annually on the third

Saturday of September since 2013.

 

Most recently, Eric has expanded and mobilized his nationwide network of local pro-life

leaders as one of the three national co-directors of ProtestPP, a coalition of pro-life

groups formed to protest Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted fetal tissue and

boost the pro-life presence at their abortion facilities going forward.

 

Eric speaks frequently on pro-life issues to audiences around the United States and internationally. He lives in Aurora, Illinois with his wife April and their eight children.

 

We hope to see you there!!!
