It is with great sadness that the founder of International Right to Life, Dr. Jack Willke has passed away.  Dr. Willke was known as the father of the pro-life movement and was President of National Right to Life and founder of Life Issues Institute.   Dr. Willke was an obstetrician who began his work in the pro-life movement in the late 1960’s.  Right to Life of Stark County will strive to continue the work begun by Dr. Willke by promoting LIFE at all stages.  We extend our sympathy to Dr. Willke’s family.
Mary A. Kring, President
Right to Life of Stark County
