The Pro-Life Action League is an American anti-abortion organization founded by Joseph M. Scheidler in Chicago in 1980. It describes its type of activism as "non-violent direct action".[1]

It was prominently involved in the Scheidler v. NOW 2006 Supreme Court decision.

According to a recent Chicago Tribune article on pro-life organizations, Pro-Life Action League "estimate(s) there are as many as 4,000 pregnancy resource centers in the U.S. Prominent pro-choice groups acknowledge that such numbers, though not formally tracked, would far eclipse the number of abortion providers or clinics."[2]
