Sr. Donna QuinnToday in League HistoryJanuary 22, 1986—Members of the Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights, including two Catholic nuns, Sr. Donna Quinn (pictured right) and Sr. Margaret Traxler, picket the League’s Chicago office on the 13th anniversary of Roe v. Wade with signs reading “Celebrate Choice” and “Churches of Many Faiths Affirm Legal Abortion.” League Director Joe Scheidler misses the picket because he is attending a meeting of pro-life leaders at the White House with President Reagan prior to the March for Life. Hearing of the picket, Joe calls for the nuns’ excommunication.
