MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The head of Wisconsin's best-known pro life group will retire at the end of the year.  

Barbara Lyons joined Wisconsin Right to Life about 40 years ago. She was the group's legislative director for about a decade, until she became the executive director in 1987.

In a statement, Lyons called it an "honor and a privilege" to serve a group that's dedicated, as she put it, "to eradicating the greatest human rights abuse of our time."

Lyons says she knows there are people who are alive today because of her group's work, and she calls that an "immeasurable reward."
