I’ve been active for over 30 years in pro-life work, spending most of that time bringing the pro-life perspective to policy debates in New Hampshire’s State House. I retired from professional lobbying and campaign work in 2021 in order to concentrate on writing, community advocacy, and hiking on Granite State trails.

  1. Dear Ms. Kolb:
    Superb article!
    You may be interested in some important U.S. abortion history. I have placed a huge amount of material related to Horatio Robinson Storer M.D., LL.B. (1830-1922) and the “Physicians’ Crusade Against Abortion” on this website:
    http://horatiostorer.net/
    As the website points out:
    Storer’s Crusade led to the laws against abortion that were overturned by Roe v Wade.
    The laws prevented millions of abortions before the laws were overturned in 1973. The children saved typically grew up, had children, and became one or more ancestors of most of us.
    There is an informative PowerPoint presentation near the bottom of the “Links” page of the website that includes quantitative proof of the effect of the state abortion laws on who is alive today in the U.S. It was my presentation February 2012 to the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
    I hope you will come to agree that Storer’s profound effect on our current population needs to be discussed widely and in U.S. History and U.S. law courses and textbooks.
    Here is a recent article that appeared in a Washington Times website:
