Freedom From Religion Foundation Founder Ann Gaylor Dies At 88

Freedom From Religion Foundation announced yesterday that its principal founder Anne Nicol Gaylor died Sunday night. She was 88. Gaylor served as president of FFRF until 2004. According to FFRF:
A master of “sound bites” with media savvy, Anne quickly took FFRF from a tiny organization to the largest association of freethinkers (atheists and agnostics) in North America.
FFRF, founded in 1976, has in recent years developed a major national presence in litigating church-state cases. Gaylor was also a co-founder of the Wisconsin-based Women’s Medical Fund, the oldest continuously operating abortion rights charity in the U.S.
