What Is Operation Rescue?
What Operation Rescue teaches is simple: They train people to sit peacefully and prayerfully in front of abortion clinic doors – placing themselves, physically, between the women wanting to kill their babies and those inside waiting to commit the crime. This prevents the murder of babies during the time of the Rescue. When the police come to arrest them, they go limp, which makes it necessary for the officers to carry them away. This may take hours, buying time for the unborn. There is also room to pray on the sidelines to support those actually involved. They are totally committed to nonviolent action – in fact, we crawled on our hands and knees as the police approached us in Atlanta so we could in no way be perceived as aggressive or threatening. Perhaps you saw parts of the Atlanta Rescue on the news. If you did, you saw totally peaceful Christians in a nonviolent confrontation with the police. I took part on Tuesday, October 4th, along with Bob Weiner, Larry Tomczak, Francis Anfuso
