Dear John:

I am greatly saddened at this news. I regarded her as a friend. She did great work for our movement as the head of Libertarians for Life...
Best regards,

  1. Doris Gordon provided a great service to the cause of liberty by founding Libertarians for Life. She was an intellectually courageous lady, whom I am honored to have met several times.

  2. Doris Gordon played a crucial role in the effort to restore the sanctity of life and principles of liberty. She promoted the cause of life to libertarians and the cause of liberty to pro-life advocates. If the leaders of the Libertarian Party, especially including delegates to the next national convention of the LP in 2016, recognized the importance of resolving the dichotomy between our national platform and principles of liberty the Libertarian Party would be enormously strengthened and be a great benefit to our country and the cause of liberty.
