WICHITA, Kansas, Mar. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- As efforts are underway to reinstate thirty criminal charges against abortionist George Tiller for committing illegal late-term abortions, a group a Catholics from Louisiana and other states will hold a 72-hour prayer vigil outside the infamous Wichita abortion mill beginning this Friday, March 23, and running through Sunday, March 25.
The group, Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary Crusade For Life, is led by Rich Mahoney and based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They have committed to holding round-the clock prayer vigils in Wichita twice a year until Women's Health Care Services closes.
"While this group is predominately Catholic, Christians from all denominations are invited to stop by Tiller's during the prayer event and offer their own prayers for an end to abortion, and that Tiller will be brought to justice for the commission of illegal late-term abortions," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
Tiller was charged with 30 criminal counts related to illegal post-viability abortions in December, only to have them dismissed the following day at the request of the pro-abortion District Attorney Nola Foulston on dubious jurisdictional grounds. The merits of the case have never been questioned.
A campaign is ongoing to persuade members of the Kansas House to pass a resolution that would compel the current attorney general, Paul Morrison, to prosecute Tiller. An Ohio group as launched a national petition to gather signatures in support of such an effort.
"Now is a critical time in the efforts to bring Tiller to justice," said Newman. "For those who cannot make it to Wichita for prayer this weekend, we encourage you to fast and pray over March 23-25 wherever you are, to the extent that God gives you grace, with the Crusade for Life and Operation Rescue for the reinstatement of the Tiller charges and an end to Tiller's abortion business."
