CINCINNATI – A prominent longtime opponent of abortion has died in Cincinnati. Barbara Jean Willke was 90.

She died Sunday at a hospital; no cause of death was released immediately.

Willke co-authored the influential 1971 "Handbook of Abortion" with her husband, obstetrician John C. "Jack" Willke. The book has shaped the thinking of generations of anti-abortion activists.

Sorry she had to live long enough to see the horrors of Philly from Doc Gosnell. RIP.

Shouldn't Planned Parenthood be having a celebration like the Commies in England had when Lady Thatcher died?

I hope that God has a multitude of aborted souls on hand to enthusiastically greet her at the Gates.

********

Why would God do that when she was pro-life? I think you misread the article.

God rest her soul.

May the Angels lead you into paradise;
may the martyrs greet you at your arrival
and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem.

I think you misinterpreted my comment. I know she was prolife.

Why would not souls that were aborted recognize her efforts and greet her even though she was not successful in their case?

Had I felt otherwise, the word “enthusiastically” wouldn’t have been in the comment.

I believe the Lord has a special place in Paradise reserved for her.

Sorry, but you should have said grateful instead of enthusiastic. :)

Nitpicking crap serves a purpose.

“no cause of death was released immediately”

“Complications of old age” would be my guess.

R.I.P., Mrs. Willke.

My point was supportive of your position (in a less than crystal clear way, it would seem.)
