Racketeer for Life

Joseph M. Scheidler
Tan Books, 2016
Hardcover, 470 pages $24.95

Scheidler has fought for the unborn since the Supreme Court allowed abortion on demand with its 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. He was the target of a lawsuit brought by the National Organization for Women under federal racketeering laws. Found guilty in 1998, Scheidler triumphed twice in appeals before the Supreme Court in 2003 and again in 2006.

Subtitled Fighting the Culture of Death from the Sidewalk to the Supreme Court, the book explains how this former Benedictine monk and journalism professor was drawn into pro-life activism, and it describes his part in the history of the U.S. pro-life movement.
