Newman Will Testify Before Kansas Legislative Committee Investigating Late-term Abortions

Thursday rally and press conference to call for enforcement, not changes to late-abortion laws


Contact: Troy Newman, President, 316-841-1700; Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor, 316-516-3034; both with Operation Rescue, info@operationrescue.org


TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue President Troy Newman is scheduled to present testimony before a joint interim legislative committee on Friday, September 7, about the non-enforcement of the Kansas ban on late-term abortions and the consequences of that non-enforcement.


"Because the laws have not been correctly enforced, it has created a crisis in Kansas that has needlessly cost of the lives and safety of women and their viable pre-born babies," said Newman. "We don't need new laws, we just need to properly enforce the ones we have."


Newman will also be a featured speaker at a press conference and pro-life rally on Thursday, September 6, on the steps of the Kansas State Capitol, which is being co-hosted by Women Influencing the Nation, Concerned Women of America, Operation Rescue, and Kansans for Life.


All pro-life supporters who possibly can are urged to come to Topeka for Thursday's event.


What: "Kansas In Crisis" Pro-Life Rally and Press Conference

When: Thursday, September 6, 2007 at noon

Where: On the steps of the Kansas State Capitol, Topeka, KS


Legislative hearings begin at 9 AM on Thursday and are scheduled to conclude on Friday.


Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation.  Operation Rescue recently made headlines when it bought and closed an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas and has become the voice of the pro-life activist movement in America.  Its activities are on the cutting edge of the abortion issue, taking direct action to restore legal personhood to the pre-born and stop abortion in obedience to biblical mandates.
