May 15, 1984

*Insert Alt Text*Today in League HistoryMay 15, 1984—League Director Joe Scheidler goes undercover at the National Abortion Federation convention in Los Angeles. He is recognized at a workshop titled, “How to Counter Pro-Life Activism” and convention organizers try, unsuccessfully, to kick him out. League staffer Andy Scholberg is physically attacked, but even then he refuses to leave. He and Joe are barred from several sessions, though, after they are recognized. The presentations they do attend are horrifying, including one in which the abortionists argue about whether the parts of the baby ought to be reassembled after a D&E abortion.
