NOW v. Scheidler case documentsToday in League HistoryMarch 2, 1998—League Directors Joe and Ann Scheidler attend morning Mass on the first day of the NOW v. Scheidler trial, originally filed 12 years before. In the case, Joe and other pro-life leaders are accused of “racketeering” for their presence at abortuaries.
