National pro-life leader Jim Sedlak, 78, died Monday before the release of his report exposing more of the activities of abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood.
In a press statement about Sedlak’s passing, American Life League (ALL) cofounder Judie Brown referred to him as “the #1 Enemy of the Evil of Planned Parenthood in America.”
According to the statement, on the day he died, Sedlak, who served as ALL’s executive director, was expected to appear on a morning radio show to discuss ALL’s soon-to-be-released “2021 Planned Parenthood Facilities Report.”
“From the very first moment I spoke to Jim there was no doubt that he was an expert on the ways that people in grassroots movements could be most effective in fighting Planned Parenthood,” Brown shared, adding:
He spoke from experience, and he always knew exactly what to do to ruffle the feathers of those who promoted a culture of death. Jim was a faithful Catholic who had an incredible devotion and led not with words, but by example. I believe this is the single greatest reason why he was so effective in battling the Planned Parenthood poison in our midst. Planned Parenthood feared him—and with good reason.
Former Planned Parenthood manager turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson confirmed Brown’s description of Sedlak. “When I worked at Planned Parenthood, their greatest threat was one humble man named Jim Sedlak,” said Johnson. “They were terrified of him.”
