Pro-Life Office Inundated With Hateful Calls In Wake Of Health Care Vote

Wichita, KS – Telephones at Operation Rescue’s national headquarters were inundated with hateful messages in the wake of the weekend vote on health care in the House of Representatives. Operation Rescue has been outspoken in its opposition to the Obama health care takeover plan, especially provisions that would provide taxpayer funding for abortions.

The calls filled the mailboxes of several extensions and ranged from nonsensical messages, to sexually explicit “dirty phone calls,” to anti-Christian, hate-filled tirades. In weeks preceding the vote Operation Rescue staff members received death threats.

“Normally we don’t give the threats and hateful calls we receive much thought. But lately there has been much made about threats to Democrats that supported the health care takeover, and we thought that people needed to know that the hate calls are flowing both ways,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“This kind of harassment and intimidation will never deter us from our mission to save the lives of innocent babies and stop abortion in our nation,” said Newman. “However, we do take security precautions and are working with the FBI, which continues to investigate death threats against me and my staff.”

    I hope you turn those death threats over to the FBI to keep it all documented. God’s angels are around you. Fear not.

    The mainstream media have been quick to report alleged abusive calls against Democrats who voted for the healthcare bill, but almost nowhere do they report the abusive calls to those who opposed it. Shame on them.

    no kidding molo. they only care about themselves, another good example was when Tiller was killed Obama himself spoke out against it…..but where is Obama’s speech for when a pro-lifer was standing outside a school protesting about abortion and got shot to death?????? hmmmmmmm…. because Obama and the rest of the scums don’t care if people that are against their beliefs are killed…atleast a lot of us pro-lifers even spoke out against Tiller’s killing….it’s a real shame!
