On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court struck down abortion laws across the U.S. in the preeminent act of judicial supremacy. In response, Phyllis Schlafly and others like her began a decades-long fight to make the Republican Party a pro-life party. How the Republican Party Became Pro-Life is the story of the ongoing war to protect the lives of the most innocent among us.
“[She’s] been out on front on so many of the most important issues of our time. [Her] work is an example to all those who would struggle for an America that is prosperous and free. Our nation needs the kind of dedicated service [Phyllis] and Eagle Forum have demonstrated. She’s darned effective.” – President Ronald Reagan
