Priest who was 'Apostle of Life' dies

Pro-life supporters lost a longtime champion with the passing of Father Paul Marx, 89, at St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minn.

Long before the Supreme Court ruled to legalize abortion in 1973, Father Marx spoke out about the evils of abortion. He founded the group Human Life International to advocate on the side of the unborn. His work for the sanctity of life earned him the title "Apostle of Life" from Pope John Paul II.

“If we did not have Father Marx, we would not have an international pro-life movement,” Brian Clowes, a spokesman for Human Life International, told the St. Cloud (Minn.) Times.
