Map of AtlantaToday in League HistoryJanuary 11, 1986—League Director Joe Scheidler leads a group of 500 pro-life activists in a picket of Midtown Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, which is “guarded” by 50 pro-abortion activists. Midtown does so many late-term abortions that, in a two-year period, two dozen babies survive the procedure and are born alive, only to die within minutes or hours. Joe then joins smaller pickets at the homes of two Midtown abortionists. The day draws extensive print, radio and TV news coverage.
