 Document 11
Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative political activist and lawyer, actively opposed legal abortion and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
She described the ERA as a vehicle to "assure and make permanent their ["women's libbers"] goal of unlimited abortion on demand." Schlafly discussed what she believed to be potential radical outcomes of both legal abortion and the ERA.
For example, she claimed "pro-ERA" and "pro-abortion" public policy would "require the public schools to give counseling for abortion." Schlafly contributed to the polarization of the abortion controversy, as well as to the movement against women's liberation, i.e., the anti-feminist movement.

 BrothersJudd.com - Review of Phyllis Schlafly's A Choice Not an Echo
What Ms Schlafly set out to demonstrate--and she succeeded to a considerable degree--was that the Eastern Establishment of the Republican Party, with its money, access to the media and advertising expertise, had for years wielded an inordinate influence over who would be the eventual presidential nominee every four years.
In this thin volume, Ms Schlafly argued that for Republicans to compete and win on the presidential level they would need to shuck off the influence of the Easterners, the moneyed interests, and select truly conservative candidates who would draw sharp contrasts with the Democrats, not try to fudge their differences.
Oddly enough, it is today Democrats who need their own Phyllis Schlafly (and isn't that a delicious prospect?) to come forward and summon them back to their party principles.

 Profile: Phyllis Schlafly, Indomitable Conservative -- 04/08/2002
Schlafly ran what she described as "a very intellectual campaign," in 1952, winning the Republican primary but losing the general election in a district with a two-to-one Democratic registration advantage.

Schlafly's contribution to the conservative movement of the 1970s, as she saw it, was two-fold: to bring people of faith together politically and teach them it's possible to win.
