Americans United for Life Salutes Phyllis Schlafly

“Her contribution to empowering women to choose life will continue to impact future generations,”
said Americans United for Life’s Clarke Forsythe. “Her passing is a loss to us all.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (09-06-16) – Americans United for Life Acting President and Senior Counsel Clarke Forsythe called the passing of conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly “a loss to us all” and made the following statement:

“Phyllis Schlafly untiringly advanced a pro-life vision for America, one in which the unique contribution of women to the world – giving life– was respected and supported in law. Many will write that she almost singlehandedly defeated the Equal Rights Amendment, while not discussing that her objections were to a law that had the potential to weaken women’s rights. As a pro-life visionary, her contribution to empowering women to choose life will continue to impact future generations, including many who may not have been born absent her leadership. We at Americans United for Life celebrate her accomplishments and mourn the loss of a leader, a friend, and an example to us all of what one determined person can accomplish. We send our sincere condolences to her family and join them in missing her.”
