Pro-life pioneers, 40 years after 'Roe'
Monday, January 14, 2013 - By National Catholic Register

Judie Brown of the American Life League (ALL) was living in Washington state in the late 1960s when she and her husband, Paul, heard a priest urge the congregation to fight Referendum 28, which would ease the state’s anti-abortion laws. With "primitive" pro-life brochures in hand, the couple went door-to-door in their community asking people to vote "No" on 28. They lost the vote by a single percentage point, but it began a long and distinguished pro-life advocacy career for Brown. The cause could be going better, said Brown. "Many of us on the pro-life side have done a lousy job educating the public about what happens when an abortion occurs. Abortion is not merely a political issue. It is the act of killing an unborn child."
