A pro-life organization contends it's time for elected officials to turn their backs on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
After a recent, week-long demonstration at Kentucky's only remaining abortion clinic, Operation Save America moved on to Indiana, spending the week working through local churches to protest abortion.
“You know, as Christians we need to realize that abortion, child sacrifice, is Satan's crown jewel,” explained OSA spokesman Rusty Thomas. “And when you touch that, you're touching the epicenter of the battle that has raged since Genesis throughout the Book of Revelation. And that same battle is here today.”
One woman who stopped to express anger at the demonstrators was ministered to and made a confession of faith. She is now being discipled by local church members.
OSA is calling on state and local governments now to defy Roe v. Wade and bring abortion to an end.
“If states like Colorado can defy the feds when it comes to smoking dope,” Thomas contended, “surely we can defy the feds when it comes to preserving and defending innocent life, and preserving the God-ordained institution of marriage.”
Thomas said pro-life and traditional values campaigns will be held in other areas, but it’s too soon to announce specific cities and locations.
