Great interview with Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler, as we discuss the
The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision on Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973.
But, Just a few days ago America watched in dismay as
the Senate failed to pass key pro-life legislation that would have guaranteed medical care to babies who survive attempted abortions. The legislation would have effectively criminalized infanticide nationwide, required abortionists to provide lifesaving care, and ensure the surviving babies get admitted to a hospital.
Although the bill would have passed on a simple majority vote, a large pro-abortion minority in the Senate killed the bill. 44 Democrat Senators voted against cloture on the motion to proceed for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130), effectively killing the lifesaving bill.
Today we are going to be speaking with Eric Scheidler who is the exec. Director of the Pro-Life Action League founded in 1980 By Joseph Scheidler, Eric's father. And now Eric carries this powerful mantle of helping to save the lives of thousands of unborn children in America today.
