WICHITA, Kansas, Nov. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- As popular Fox News host Bill O’Reilly continues to take late-term abortionist George R. Tiller to task on national television, Operation Rescue is asking pro- lifers from across the nation to come Wichita January 20-22, 2007, over the Roe v. Wade memorial weekend, to call national attention to Tiller’s horrific child-killing business.
In last night’s Talking Points Memo aired during The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly told viewers that the situation with Tiller was the worst case he’d seen in 30 years of journalism. “There should be thousands of people protesting outside Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita,” O’Reilly said.
“We couldn’t agree more with Mr. O’Reilly,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “That is why we are putting out the call for all men and women of conscience to come to Wichita on January 20-22 and send a loud, clear message to America that we will not tolerate Tiller’s shameful attacks on the defenseless.”
Referring to Tiller’s late-term abortion business, O’Reilly said, “Is this what we want in America? Is it? This is the kind of stuff that happened in Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, and Stalin’s Russia. The American people cannot turn away from this – cannot ignore it. This kind of stuff simply cannot be tolerated in a civilized society.”
"Our public stand for the pre-born will help Americans to consider the horrific nature of child killing," said Newman. "We are praying this will be a turning point in the way our nation thinks about abortion and will help bring the hearts of the people to repentance."
“We have spent the last four years fully documenting the horrors of early and late-term abortion practices at Tiller’s infamous abortion mill and distributing that information to the public. We are ready to make a full-court press to expose Tiller to the nation,” said Newman.
“We intend to take advantage of this unique moment, when the eyes of the nation are focused on Wichita, and make a bold stand for life,” said Newman. “As Christians, we cannot stand idly by. We must act. Please answer the call of the defenseless pre-born babies and come to Wichita on January 20-22."
