DENVER, June 17 /Christian Newswire/ — The organizations will hold a news conference on Wednesday, June 18, at 11:00 A.M. in front of the entrance to the Pepsi Center in downtown Denver to discuss in detail their plans for the DNC.
The name of the event is called “A Prayer for Change,” and the press can go to Aprayerforchange.com for more information.
The Christian Defense Coalition, Survivors, Operation Rescue and other pro-life groups plan to have a series of prayer vigils, rallies, demonstrations, concerts and public events at the DNC to expose the radical pro-abortion of Senator Barack Obama at the Democratic Party.
The pro-life organizations will be praying and calling for Senator Obama and the Democratic Party to end this tragic war against America’s children which has resulted in over 50,000,000 abortions.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states, “We are coming to Denver to pray and seek God to end this tragic taking of innocent life through abortion. We will also be peacefully and prayerfully on the streets of Denver to expose the radical pro-abortion policies of Senator Obama and the Democratic Party.
“Senator Obama talks about social justice and reaching out to the poor. Yet he supports abortion policies that crush human rights and promote violence and despair. Simply stated, if Barack Obama were elected this Fall he would be the most radical pro-abortion President in American history. His views on abortion are radical and extremist and outside of the mainstream of what most Americans believe.”
Danielle White Versluys, Special Events Director for Survivors, adds, “Senator Obama talks about change and bringing hope to America yet clings to and embraces abortion policies that most Americans find appalling. As a leader of this emerging generation, I am deeply troubled that Senator Obama continues to support the barbaric procedure of Partial-birth abortion and wants to expand abortion rights through the Freedom of Choice Act.
“This generation is coming to Denver to pray and cry out for change and believe that we will one day see a nation where all human life is treated with dignity and respect.”
