Pro-lifers at a PLAN conferenceToday in League HistoryApril 11, 1985—The annual Pro-Life Action Network (PLAN) convention meets in Appleton, Wisconsin. Host Jerry Horn puts a message on the marquee: “Welcome pro-lifers, have a blast.” He had intended to write “have a ball,” but only had one L left. The photograph of the PLAN members gathered around the marquee pictured left would become a major piece of evidence in the NOW v. Scheidler trial, intended to prove that Joe and the other activists pictured are violent abortion clinic bombers and racketeers.
