"Rescue those doomed to die." First, who are they, and second, why should I? John Cavanaugh-O'Keefe explains why he and others launched a campaign of pro-life nonviolence. He begins with a common sense approach: unborn children and women facing an unexpected and unwelcome pregnancy need help, and decent people will offer that help. He includes the reasons from history for a specifically nonviolent approach, imitating Gandhi and King and Lech Walesa and Corazon Aquino. He also explains how the teaching of the Catholic Church supports nonviolent action to protect women and children.

John Cavanaugh-O’Keefe comes from a remarkable family. His father was an astrophysicist who discovered that the earth is pear-shaped, and spent most of his career studying the origin of the moon. His mother wrote several books about Maria Montessori, John of the Cross, and Emily Dickinson. His nine brothers and sisters include a CIA agent who captured one of Osama bin Laden’s lieutenants, the historian who explained the immense influence of the eugenics movement after World War II, a war hero, three who wrote about education, a physicist specializing in weather, a civic leader in art and education. Amongst them the nine siblings contributed 27 remarkable children to the next generation. He and his wife Betsy have raised six wonderful children. Cavanaugh-O’Keefe is sometimes called the “father of the rescue movement.” He would prefer to avoid paternity suits over the matter, and in any case notes that women did most of the work building the movement. Cavanaugh-O’Keefe has written about eugenics, in "The Roots of Racism and Abortion," and about immigration in "Sign of the Crossing" and "Welcome Date TBD."
