Over more than four decades fighting abortion, my father Joe Scheidler has earned quite a few enemies — but none quite so infamous as Fay Clayton.
Fay Clayton, along with her husband, Lowell Sachnoff, served as the lead attorney on the epic NOW v. Scheidler case. Clayton tried to make pro-life activism a federal crime!
Clayton ultimately lost the case in the U.S. Supreme Court — unanimously — but not before dragging my family through the federal court system for more than 20 years.
Despite losing the biggest abortion case since Roe v. Wade, Clayton and Sachnoff are still the darlings of the pro-abortion movement, and next Wednesday they’re getting a big award: the Clayton-Sachnoff family will be honored at Planned Parenthood’s annual “Generations Celebration” at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
Meanwhile, the Scheidler family — along with friends — will be there in protest, showing what Planned Parenthood REALLY does to future generations in its nationwide chain of abortion clinics.
I would love for you to be one of the friends standing with me and my family when Planned Parenthood gathers to honor Fay Clayton next Wednesday. The details are listed below and on the Facebook event page:
- EVENT: Protest Planned Parenthood “Generations Celebration”
- WHEN: Wednesday, April 15th, 5:00 p.m.
- WHERE: Chicago’s Navy Pier Map
We’ll meet up at Illinois street, one block east of Lake Shore Drive. I’ll bring the signs, you bring the will to stand up against Planned Parenthood and their cronies like Fay Clayton.
Remember: Fay Clayton lost her big case against my dad. We’re going to remind her of that — and how my father’s court victory allowed us to keep fighting the likes of Planned Parenthood.
