Priests for Life National Director Frank Pavone and Street Activism Coordinator Bryan Kemper are two of the pro-life leaders featured in a new book to be published June 26 by the Florida Family Policy Council.

Legacy of Life is a hardbound commemorative book honoring 50 of the greatest pro-life leaders, living and deceased, over the last 50 years.

The book’s release follows by just two days the one-year anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a day all of the featured leaders had worked toward for decades.

“The goal of the Legacy of Life book is three-fold,” said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Council. “First, we want to honor those who have led the fight for us to now celebrate the first anniversary of a post-Roe America. Second, we wanted to collect and preserve the stories and history behind these leaders. These amazing stories of courage and conviction provide a recorded history of the pro-life movement in a personal and accessible way. Third, and most importantly, we wanted to inspire the next generation of leaders to rise up and join us in the greatest human rights struggle in the world.

Written by Dr. Alveda King, a pro-life and civil rights activist who serves on the Priests for Life board of directors, Pavone’s profile details his 30 years at the helm of Priests for Life, one of the world’s largest ministries dedicated to ending abortion.

“My life’s goal is to end abortion,” Pavone said. “I’m grateful for this recognition, and take it as an encouragement to continue to press forward, with all these other colleagues of mine, to get the job done.”

He added, “The milestones that my ministry and I have achieved so far would not have been possible without the ongoing sacrifices made by my associates on this great Priests for Life team.”

Kemper’s profile was written by longtime friend and fellow activist Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition. It tells the story of Kemper’s redemption from a chaotic life and how his passion for pro-life came about.

Kemper is a father of seven and grandfather of three who includes his children in his street activism whenever possible.

“To work toward the end of abortion has been my privilege,” he said, “and to be included in such a distinguished group is an incredible honor.”
