Mark Crutcher

Founder of Life Dynamics


Daring, innovative, author, father… these are just a few words to describe who Mark Crutcher was. In 1986, Mark committed to working in the pro-life movement full-time, after years of being an outspoken challenger of abortion. He created the Life Activist Seminar and trained more than 15,000 pro-life activists across North America. Then, in 1992, he started Life Dynamics, Inc., which has become a widely recognized pro-life organization.

Mark always took a bold and hard-hitting approach in standing up against abortion. As a result, Life Dynamics may best be known for our undercover operations, such as “Child Predators”, which have exposed shocking and illegal activities that happen inside the abortion industry. Our success in covert surveillance efforts have led to Life Dynamics being labeled “the CIA of the pro-life movement”.

He wrote many articles, including ones that have been published in: The Christian American, All About Issues, and Focus on the Family’s Citizen magazine. In 1996, Mark wrote Lime 5, a book that gives readers a shocking look as to what goes on inside the American abortion industry.

Mark also appeared on many local and national television news outlets, including: ABC World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, Fox News, Nightline, 20/20, and the O’Reilly Factor. He was a frequent contributor to World Net Daily, American Family Radio, Family News in Focus and the USA Radio Network.

Mark has been the recipient of many awards, in recognition of his hard work and dedication in saving babies’ lives. Some of his awards include: Virginia’s Coalition for Life- Defender of the Unborn (2013), the Cardinal Von Galen Award (2002), the Arizona Right to Life Award (2010), New Hampshire Right to Life- Pro-life Champion Recognition Award (2005), and American Life League’s Blogger of the Year award (2009).

Until his passing in March 2023, he lived in Denton, TX with his wife of over 50 years – Tulane and their dog. When he wasn’t tirelessly fighting for the unborn, he enjoyed riding and working on his motorcycle and watching baseball. Mark’s daughter Sheila, works at Life Dynamics in a variety of roles- including writing for the Pro-Life Voice and as the new co-host of the Pro-Life America podcast.
