WICHITA, Kansas, Jan. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- The four-day event inspired by Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly called "A Cry For Justice" kicks off today with a press conference and efforts to dissuade women from having abortions outside George Tiller's abortion mill today at noon.
The press conference will focus on efforts to reinstate the 30 criminal charges against Tiller that were dismissed on jurisdictional grounds. Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington, DC, and Dr. Gary Cass of Coral Ridge Ministries Center for Reclaiming America in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, will make statements and be available for interview.
This evening at 7PM there will be an Opening Convocation at Heartland Community Church (at Kellogg and Woodlawn) featuring Rev. Mahoney, who was an integral part of the 1991 Operation Rescue leadership team during the Summer of Mercy.
On Saturday, Operation Rescue will host A Cry For Justice Conference at Heartland Community Church featuring:
- The Tiller Briefing
- A special Youth Summit with Michael McMonagle of Generation Life
- Panel discussions on the topics of pregnancy support services, post-abortion help, and legislative issues.
- Operation Rescue's Vision for Victory workshop
The Conference will be followed by a keynote address at 7 PM featuring Dr. Cass.
Sunday morning Dr. Gary Cass will speak at Heartland Church at 9:15 AM and Rev. Pat Mahoney will be speaking at 10:00 AM at City Church, 2634 Amidon in Wichita. Sunday afternoon the group will dedicate the former Central Women's Services abortion building and adjoining prayer garden.
