Pro-Life Leaders Remember Phyllis Schlafly: “She’s the Reason the GOP is Pro-Life”

Phyllis Schlafly passed away yesterday at the age of 92 and today leading pro-life advocates are remembering the pro-life champion.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, was a longtime friend of Mrs. Schlafly, who spoke at the annual SFLA national conferences and who was a mentor to Ms. Hawkins as well.

Hawkins told LifeNews.com that Schlafly deserves credit for getting the pro-life plank in the Republican party platform approved in 1980 and then keeping it there ever four years after that.
