In late September and October, 2015, Operation Rescue President Troy Newman was invited by Australia Right to Life to speak in a number of cities across Australia. However, the trip turned into an international incident when the Minister of Immigration unjustly revoked Newman’s visa without proper notice while he was in transit to the Land Down Under. Newman was falsely accused, detained for three days, then deported. The incident generated international headlines and brought abortion to the forefront of public debate in Australia.
