When he was a minister, Dr. Schenck challenged a federal district court injunction that restricted pro-life "sidewalk counselors" from approaching men and women with bibles, tracts and a peaceful, pro-life message. The case, Schenck v. Pro-Choice, reached the United States Supreme Court, which ruled 8-1 in his favor, striking down the restrictions as a fundamental violation of the First Amendment right of free speech.
