pro-life heroes who have changed the world.
Legacy of Life, a 12x12 limited-edition, hardback, commemorative book, holds fifty tributes written by fifty respected leaders, honoring the greatest founders, builders, strategists, and innovators of the pro-life movement from 1973 to the present such as Jack Willke, Phyllis Schlafly, Francis Schaeffer, Dr. James Kennedy, Henry Hyde, Joe Scheidler, Ronald Reagan, Mother Teresa, Cardinal O’Connor, as well as living leaders who have labored in the cause to end abortion in America. With powerful leaders at the helm, pro-life advocates have tirelessly worked to save millions of precious lives. This momentous book not only highlights legacy leaders in the pro-life movement, but also tells inspiring personal stories of these heroes that have not been told before. The book’s purpose is three-fold: to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the pro-life cause, to educate the public about the history of the pro-life movement, and to inspire the next generation of leaders. Ben Shapiro’s foreword delivers a powerful message that will empower readers to action. The collective hope and prayer of the team of authors who assembled this work are that it will inspire generations of new leaders in the greatest human rights struggle of the last century.
