Air Date: January 20, 2012
Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Troy Newman
Troy Newman is President of Operation Rescue, one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation. He’s been involved in pro-life activities since 1991. In 1998 he became the leader of Operation Rescue and in 2002 he moved his ministry offices to Wichita, Kansas, where he worked to expose abortion abuses at George Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services.
Today, abortion is the leading cause of death in America, outpacing even death by heart disease. The total number of deaths by abortion is estimated to be approximately 50 million since 1973. That means this Sunday marks the 39th anniversary of the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision, a decision that gave sanction to abortion during all stages of development.
Troy and Jim look at why the tide is turning, the Dr. Nicola Riley/Dr. Steven Brigham abortion case, the Kermit Gosnell live birth abortion murder case, the recent wave of pro-life legislation and Troy describes an interesting new website from Operation Rescue that can be viewed at www.abortiondocs.org.
