Ann is the Assistant Director of the Pro-Life Action League / the Editor of Pro-Life Action News, a quarterly publication of the Pro-Life Action League / and the Coordinator of Speak Out Illinois, a coalition of pro-life groups in northern Illinois.

Today, Ann will be talking primarily about sidewalk counseling. She also speaks and writes about the history of abortion and the conversion of abortion providers - which, of course, would be the best and most effective way out of our current problem, here in Erie.
