Operation Rescue's president, Troy Newman, and other members of the Operation Rescue staff were honored to be a part of the historic fight against the forced killing of his daughter, Terri Schindler-Schiavo, in Pinellas Park, Florida, in 2005.

"We knew Bob to be a kind man with a big heart. May he rest in peace," said Newman. "Bob's legacy will continue through his family and the work of the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation."
