“The pro-life movement needs a lot more people like Troy Newman. His deep compassion for the helpless unborn, combined with his innovative strategies, springs from his strong personal integrity and the kind of moral courage it takes to fight a thankless battle day after day. Troy feels keenly the gross injustice of abortion, not only against the child, but also against women who have been offered this ‘right’ instead of being given the love and care they crave. Whenever I need a shot in the arm and some encouragement in this lonely battle, I give Troy a call. He always gives me a lift. I am proud to have Troy as a fellow colleague in this ongoing battle for life.”

Joe Scheidler
Founder, Pro-Life Action League

I praise the Lord for what Troy and his collaborators have been able to accomplish!”

“Well, anyway, Troy Newman, I want to thank you for being with us. You have absolutely been a leader to bring these things forward. There’s a lot of pro-life people, there’s a lot of pro-life organizations – God bless each and every one – but somebody has to have the courage to step out front. And I personally want to thank you, Troy Newman, for being that person who seems to be there with the evidence, with the story, and standing sometimes in the gap where no one else is either able to or will.”

Charles B. Lowers
Considering Homeschooling

“It’s easy to talk about the evil of abortion. Troy Newman does much more than talk. He has brought the ABORTION INDUSRY to its knees in his adopted home town of Wichita, Kansas. If PRO-LIFE groups want to end abortion instead of just talking about ending it, they should model themselves after Troy Newman, a true American hero!”

Bryan Kemper
President, Stand True Ministries

“Troy has paid a great price to walk the narrow road as a dedicated disciple of Christ, tirelessly pouring out his heart for the unborn and their moms. Reading Troy’s book, Their Blood Cries Out, motivated me to get back on the streets after a sabbatical of having my own children, and the first day out, with the grace of God, I helped save the life of a 17 week old unborn child. His mother told me she lost count of how many abortions she had in the past, but was so excited to have her first little baby born alive. Brandon is now 3 years old and a precious little boy. Thanks Troy, for encouraging new pro-lifers, and old pro-lifers, to continue on strong in the battle. You’re always an encouragement to me, motivate me, and I thank God for your perseverance!! Keep up the fight. You’re in my prayers.”

Sue (Finn) Cyr
Former Media Spokeswoman for Operation Rescue

“I have known Troy Newman for a number of years now. I consider him both friend and mentor. Partly due to his eloquence and natural charm, Troy is a leader of leaders in the battle to restore legal protection to the preborn. When that battle is finally won, and the history books are written, Troy Newman’s name will be remembered alongside William Wilberforce, as a key social reformer of his day.”

Larry Donlan
Rescue The Heartland

“I have worked with Troy and Cheryl at OR on a number of front-line pro-life projects in four states, and have been extremely impressed with their outstanding, creative and effective pro-life leadership in exposing corrupt pro-abort politicians, and working as hard as anyone in shutting down abortion mills. They have been very supportive of our work in NYC, and helped us launch our free mobile ultrasound program in the South Bronx. I consider them good friends, and wish them all the best in their current campaigns.”

Chris Slattery
Founder & President, Expectant Mother Care-EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers

“OPERATION RESCUE is a three-fold cord (Eccl. 4:12) woven through the entire tapestry of the Pro-Life Movement. Thanks to Operation Rescue’s faithful stewardship, service, and inspiration: disparate parts of the Pro-Life Movement stand — and stand together. ‘Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.’ Ephesians 6:13.”

Troy has a consistent focus on opposing abortion in many ways, some of which include educating the public through his Truth Trucks, providing information services, direct challenges to George Tiller in Kansas and battling abortion laws around the country. Troy has said to me and has demonstrated by example that he will not concern himself with issues that distract from our united efforts of ending abortion and opposing the culture of death.”

Peter Shinn
President – Pro-Life Unity and the Monthly Call For Life

“Thank you Troy for all the great work you are doing. I first met Troy Newman at the American Life League convention in Tampa, FL. in 1997 or 1998 I was the head of security for the event. What impressed me the most was his having no problem being shoved to the very end of the vendor area (a remote area) because he had pictures of what an abortion looked like. Also, he went out of his way to find the local abortion clinics in Tampa, so he could spend Saturday morning helping rescue unborn babies. That showed me the heart of the man we know as Troy Newman.
“Troy did not have a problem when myself and Josiah (a former Lamb of Christ) took one his 4X5′ abortion pics, and plastered it by the only escalator leading to the 2nd floor (for another event) of the convention center. The line was backed up out the door, and literally thousands of people from the Tampa Bay area got an up-close and personal look at what abortion is. Joe Schieldler was there, and gave a nodding approval at what we had done.
“Reactions ranged from tears to disgust to anger. It remained in place for two hours, until the head of security for the convention ripped it down. Though Troy’s poster was destroyed, he did not care, as people got an up close look at what abortion is. That is the manner of the man I know as Troy Newman. God bless you my brother.”

Steve Wetzel
Missionaries To The Unborn

“Troy Newman is by far the most effective leader that Operation Rescue has ever had, and one of the most effective leaders in the entire proLife movement worldwide. Troy has shown a wonderful willingness to work with all other proLife groups, who are actually fighting abortion, and he works well with proLife people of all Faiths and backgrounds.
“It is in large part, due to Troy’s help, that the Kansas Coalition for Life has been so successful in our daily presence at the gate of the worst Abortion Facility in America, the Tiller Late-term Abortion Facility here in Wichita, where we have documented 354 saves so far. Without Troy’s help, and that of his top manager, Cheryl Sullenger, I fear that this number would be half of what it is today!
“Troy is one of the most honorable and courageous people I know. I consider him a true and loyal friend.”

Mark S. Gietzen
Chairman of The Kansas Coalition for Life

“Three cheers for Troy Newman and Operation Rescue for being the conscience of this nation.”

Until the day comes when Roe v. Wade is overturned and the opportunity exists to protect unborn children under law, the pro-life movement needs organizations like Operation Rescue that are willing to hold the abortion industry accountable.
We can stop abortions, put abortion practitioners out of business, and protect women and unborn children today. We can do that by taking the simple action of ensuring abortion practitioners follow state health and safety standards and urging state and local officials to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law when they don’t. Operation Rescue, led by Troy Newman, is at the forefront of that effort.
Their work has proven that we can stop abortions peacefully and legally and OR is a crucial member of the national and international pro-life team.
