DENVER, Sept. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue announces today that it will join with the Christian Defense Coalition, the Survivors, and a coalition of other pro-life groups in protesting the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which will be held in Denver, Colorado, next August.
"Operation Rescue is committed to peaceful protest to draw attention to the horrors of abortion, which the Democratic Party supports," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "Abortion is one of the top issues with the American people, and if the Democrats are going to support it, they should be exposed to what it really does to women and pre-born babies. We call on pro-life supporters to come to Denver next August and stand for the cause of Life."
Operation Rescue operates a fleet of Truth Trucks that display large graphic images of aborted babies. During the 2004 Presidential campaign, the Truth Trucks made headlines with a tour of swing states in the final days before the election.
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.
