WICHITA, Kans., May 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue has launched its newest radio ad drawing public attention to the legal cases against late-term abortionist George R. Tiller.
OR originally announced its plans for a media blitz to draw attention to Tiller's legal woes in February, then launched the campaign in March with radio ads on several stations and hundreds of thousands of automated phone calls to Kansas households.
Tiller's attorneys responded by filing a motion to have the grand jury currently investigating Tiller disregard the campaign. In a five-minute hearing, Judge Paul Buchanan rejected the motion.
The latest radio ad takes aim at the delays in producing evidence to the grand jury and in the prosecution of Tiller's pending criminal case.
"We intend to keep the public eye focused on these cases so that justice is properly served," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "If the judges and politicians realize that the public has not forgotten, they are more likely to act with swiftly and with integrity."
