Atlanta, GAToday in League HistoryDecember 13, 1998—League Director Joe Scheidler attends an Operation Rescue (OR) Summit in Atlanta, Georgia. Upon his arrival at the hotel where the event is taking place, Joe joins a mob of 200 pro-abortion activists protesting outside, curious whether they will recognize him. One woman does recognize him and points at him while leading the chant, “Not the Church, not the State, women will decide their fate.” Joe observes that he is neither the Church nor the State, but the distinction is lost on them. When another pro-abortion woman is denied entry to the OR event, she spits in Joe’s face and then flees.
