Pro-Life Warrior James Sedlak, Feared by Planned Parenthood, Passes Away at 78

Doug Mainwaring : Jan 14, 2022

"He held strongly to basic moral principles and I never saw him compromise those principles in any way, as too many have been tempted to do. I am really going to miss seeing his smiling face and encountering his upbeat presence." -LifeSiteNews cofounder Steve Jalsevac

"In 1979, I read a book called the Tiniest Humans," Sedlak once recounted. "It was just an absolutely compelling book about the humanity of the preborn child. And that's what brought me into the pro-life movement."

Sedlak didn't just join the pro-life movement, he became one of the driving forces combating abortion throughout the world. According to ALL founder Judie Brown, Sedlak was the "#1 Enemy of Evil in America."

"When I worked at Planned Parenthood, their greatest threat was one humble man named Jim Sedlak," explained leading pro-life advocate and former Planned Parenthood clinic director, Abby Johnson. "They were terrified of him."

"Jim Sedlak was a unique pro-life activist in many ways," said LifeSiteNews' Vice President, Gualberto Garcia Jones, who worked with Sedlak at American Life League's Stafford, Virginia, office from 2004 to 2006.

"I don't believe that the work of holding Planned Parenthood accountable would have been possible without Jim Sedlak's dedication. He undoubtedly has saved many lives through his work and I hope he is enjoying his reward now in Heaven."

Sedlak was a "cheerful and yet fearless person who had a relatively uncommon, in-depth understanding of the many issues and forces behind the death movement," added LifeSiteNews cofounder Steve Jalsevac.

"He held strongly to basic moral principles and I never saw him compromise those principles in any way as too many have been tempted to do," said Jalsevac. "I am really going to miss seeing his smiling face and encountering his upbeat presence."

"Sedlak was passionate about stopping Planned Parenthood's influence in school sex education programs, as well as ending their ability to root themselves into local communities," wrote LiveAction's Carole Novielli. "His goal was to initially stop Planned Parenthood in his own community, but as pro-lifers learned of his success, that mission quickly blossomed into a national—and eventually international—mission"...
