A new generation of pro-life activism has been tapped with the addition of two of Joe and Ann’s children to the League staff. After four years in parish youth ministry, Annie Scheidler, 27, came on board in October to head the League’s new youth outreach, Generations for Life. This issue of Action News includes a full article on this exciting new program.
Eric J. Scheidler, 36, father of five, joined the League in November after five years with The GIFT Foundation, a lay Catholic apostolate dedicated to promoting the Church’s teachings on marriage and sexuality. Starting with this issue, Eric assumes responsibility for editorship of Action News. Building on his work with The GIFT Foundation, Eric will spearhead the League’s effort to address the contraception issue, which he calls “the taproot of abortion.”
