Know Your Pro-Life History

To be deep in history is to cease to be Pro-Choice [with apologies to John Henry Cardinal Newman].

Know your Pro-Life History so we don't repeat the past!

J. P. McFadden was one of the leaders in chronicling the Life Movement since the Roe v. Wade decision. He founded the Human Life Review which marks it's 40 anniversary this year. Excellent interview with his daughter Maria McFadden at the Catholic World Report.

Some excerpts:
When the Roe v. Wade decision was handed down, it shocked him to the core. He simply couldn’t believe it. He called it his “day-long road to Damascus,” the day he read the decision. He couldn’t believe the Supreme Court would put “moral suasion and moral power behind killing babies.” .....
My father was determined that the Review would be the place where all the best minds would gather to argue in defense of life, and also that the Review would be a record of the pro-life movement. We will not, he said, be like Nazi Germany—no one should be able to say they didn’t know what was going on.
