Pro-Lifers Mourn the Death of Historic Pro-Life Leader Phyllis Schlafly

The National Right to Life Committee, the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, mourns the death of our friend Phyllis Schlafly, who passed away at her home in St. Louis on Monday, September 5, at the age of 92.

The following statement may be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

We are deeply saddened by the death of Phyllis Schlafly. Phyllis steadfastly defended the protection of unborn children, and was a stalwart and compassionate defender of the most vulnerable members of society. Without her unwavering commitment, the Equal Rights Amendment would have been ratified 35 years ago – with all of its implications for enshrining abortion as a constitutional right. Phyllis’s dedication to the right-to-life cause helped guide the movement and her leadership proved invaluable. Our prayers and condolences go out to the Schlafly family and the entire right-to-life movement for the loss of this good and faithful servant.

National Right to Life Vice President Tony Lauinger, a frequent delegate to Republican National Conventions, worked with Phyllis for over 30 years in keeping the protection of unborn children a Republican-Party-platform commitment of the highest priority. “Phyllis’s devotion to the unborn child, her exceptional organizing skills, and her ability to educate and inspire others have influenced the Republican Party’s principled pledge to defend the sanctity of innocent human life more than has the work of any other individual.”
