Armed with a pseudonym and a prayerbook, she joined Chicago's pro-life movement to get an inside look at the hardcore opposition to legalized abortion. After several weeks as a volunteer at the Illinois Right-To-Life headquarters and a weekend showing gory movies on the group's traveling Life-Mobile, Warrick was referred to the office of Joseph M.

In the fifteenth and final article of the Sun-Times' "Abortion Profiteers" series, reporter Pamela Warrick reports on her time spent volunteering at Chicago-based anti-abortion group Right-To-Life.
