“You know, I’ve been covering the news in America for 30 years and this Kansas situation is the worst thing I’ve ever seen…Americans cannot turn away from this; cannot ignore it. There should be thousands of people demonstrating outside Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita.” -Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly
Operation Rescue is calling pro-life supporters from around the nation to converge on Wichita, KS, the Abortion Capital of the World, for a four-day event on January 19-22, 2007, focusing on late-term abortionist George R. Tiller during the 34th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion in America.
The event, Wichita ’07 — A Cry For Justice, was prompted by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who has been highly critical of Tiller during broadcasts of The O’Reilly Factor. “There should be thousands of people protesting outside Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita,” O’Reilly said. (See O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo, 11/10/06)
