The head of a pro-life activist group "could not be more proud" of a veteran pro-life warrior as he receives a prestigious award.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman tells OneNewsNow his organization has given the Malachi Award to Missouri pro-life lobbyist and activist Samuel Lee.
"We call this award the Malachi Award after the last book of the Old Testament, which means 'God's messenger,'" Newman explains. "Sam has truly been a champion for the unborn children in America, specifically in Missouri."
Lee has helped pass stringent pro-life legislation that has made Missouri one of the most pro-life states in the country, and he has put so much pressure on Planned Parenthood that the nation's largest abortion conglomerate recently opted to open its new baby termination facility across the border in another state.
"He has just been a courageous, stalwart soldier for Christ and for the babies, and we could not be more proud to … award him the Malachi Award for 2019," Newman tells OneNewsNow.
Lee heads Campaign Life Missouri and is known for his creativity in crafting bills that protect pregnant women from shoddy abortion clinic practices and help convince them instead to bring their babies into the world alive.
