The passing of author, commentator and political activist Phyllis Schlafly prompted some pro-life advocates to remember her leadership across decades of political involvement.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, said Schlafly “inspired millions to the fight against abortion.”

“Phyllis is the reason the Republican Party is a pro-life party,” Hawkins said Sept. 5. “Phyllis will be missed yet her legacy will live on through my generation and in the young women who are fearless in the fight for the lives of the preborn and their mothers on their campuses and in their workplaces and communities.”

Schlafly, a Catholic, passed away at her St. Louis home on Monday at the age of 92.
