League Executive Director Eric Scheidler has taken on controversial topics in recent speaches to college students. On October 13, he addressed 80 students at Lewis University in Bolingbrook, Illinois, on the issue of contraception at the invitation of Professor Therese Jones. Eric charted how contraception leads to more abortion, not less, and encouraged students to challenge society’s widespread acceptance of contraception.

The Overpopulation Myth

On October 16, Eric spoke at the Students for Life of Illinois Pro-Life Summit on the Campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in a talk that covered how to most effectively address many common pro-choice arguments, with a special focus on the overpopulation myth. His talk was well received by the students, who came from colleges throughout the state for the great event organized by John-Paul Deddens.

The Grassroots Is Pro-Life!

Eric shifted gears on October 23 to speak to a rather different audience: the Joliet Diocese Council of Catholic Women meeting in Kankakee, Illinois. In a talk arranged by Carole Wright, Eric shared his story of how pro-lifers beat the Illinois FOCA bill and encouraged the women to be confidently politically active in causes that matter to Catholics.
