President Vows to Veto Stem Cell Bill
Washington, DC — President George W. Bush has promised to veto S. 5, a bill that would have provided federal funding for life-destructive experimentation on live human embryos. The bill thankfully lacks support for a veto override.
“It is immoral for the government to require our tax money to be spent on killing innocent people, even at the earliest stages of development,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Killing live human embryos has not yielded one promising cure for any disease, while stem cells derived from ethical sources hold much promise for easing human suffering. We should remember those in Congress who voted for this bill and pray that their eyes will be opened to the reality that taking innocent human life is not the answer to any of mankind’s problems.”

Omaha Protesters Vindicated
Omaha, NE — Seven pro-life protesters were vindicated in court yesterday after arrests for praying in an abortion worker’s neighborhood. The group had been accused of violating an anti-residential picketing ordinance and disturbing the peace. All charges were dismissed. However, following the dismissal, the judge implemented a protection order against the group.
“If these people did nothing wrong, then why the need for a protection order? It is unnecessarily punitive for people exonerated of any wrong-doing,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
In answer to prayer, the subject of the vigils, Karen Pender, no longer works in the abortion business.
Hialeah Homicide Needs New Autopsy
Miami, FL — The two main participants in the death of Baby Shanice Denise Osbourne, a baby born alive and intentionally killed in a Hialeah abortion clinic last year, have now been arrested and charged for the commission of illegal abortions at another abortion mill in Miramar. But the pair has yet to be charged with the brutal murder of Baby Shanice, where the gasping infant was shoved into a plastic bag filled with caustic chemicals and tossed onto the abortion mill roof.
It has been discovered that the original autopsy was conducted by an osteopath with very little experience, instead of a forensic pathologist. The report’s determination that Baby Shanice’s death was “natural” is hindering the progress of the murder case. An assistant prosecutor has asked for a second autopsy, but his request has been blocked.
Please call Dr. Bruce Hyma, Chief Medical Examiner, at 305-545-2400, and ask for a second autopsy on Baby Shanice Osbourne to be performed by a forensic pathologist, so there can be some measure of justice for this little girl.
Tiller Criminal Case News
Olathe, KS — Finally, a Kansas editorial board that understands the Tiller case! It is a powerful article that articulated the important points that other Kansas papers are intentionally ignoring, and in some cases, misrepresenting to the public.

Topeka, KS — House Speaker Melvin Neufeld continues to drag his feet on pursuing a resolution that will force pro-abortion Attorney General Paul Morrison to enforce Kansas law and reinstate 30 criminal charges against late-term abortionist George R. Tiller.
Please continue to contact him and ask him to exert every ounce of his authority to bring Tiller to justice. Speaker Neufeld can be reached at 620-335-5316 or e-mailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. Time is ticking. The House reconvenes April 25 for a brief session, and something should be done by then, or this opportunity may permanently be lost.
Topeka, KS — Governor Sebelius is using a Kansas law to order Attorney General Paul Morrison to challenge a recently signed bill allowing gambling in Kansas. Sebelius wants a quick court ruling to vindicate the bill so that investors will have confidence in going forward with plans to develop casinos in a number of communities.
What is not being reported is that Sebelius is using the same Kansas law that the Kansas House is using to compel Morrison to prosecute George Tiller for doing illegal late-term abortions. Morrison held a news conference earlier this month to comment on the House efforts where he told the media that he believed the law was an unconstitutional violation of the separations of powers doctrine. Media referred to the statue is “little used” and “obscure.” There have been no such proclamations in the case of the gambling bill challenge.
“This just shows the hypocrisy of certain elements of the Kansas media and the politicians to which they give favorable coverage,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is dishonest and manipulative. Apparently their hypocrisy knows no bounds.”
Wichita, KS – Our hot new video about George R. Tiller debuted yesterday on YouTube.com and has already received hundreds of hits and a five star rating! Here are some of the comments left by viewers:
“Powerful! The truth has to be brought out into the open. We MUST do something because if we don’t, God will hold us ALSO accountable. Thank you for this EXCELLENT video.”
“This is really awesome. I was crying by the end of it. I just don’t know how people continue to look the other way while this man does what he does…”
“Thank you for sharing the truth behind abortion profiteers like Tiller. Sad that I had to loose one of my own pre-born children thru abortion before I learned the truth. I deeply regret my “choice” and hope no other woman has to go thru abortion’s aftermath.”
Wichita, KS — Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington, DC has confirmed that he will be joining us in Wichita on May 17-20 for our “Pray in May” 77-hour round the clock prayer vigil at George Tiller’s abortion mill. We will be praying for Tiller and his employees to repent and stop killing children, as well as for Tiller to be brought to justice in a court of law for committing illegal late-term abortions.
