The pro-life rescue movement began in earnest in 1985, with the publication of Joseph Scheidler’s Closed: 99 Ways to Stop Abortion. In 1987, Joseph coordinated with Randall Terry to form Operation Rescue, which coordinated rescue activities throughout the late 1980s, resulting in over 11,500 arrests in defense of the defenseless.
The movement began to waine after violence routinely erupted between pro-abortion activists and those attempting to peacefully blockade the facilities where prenatal children were being killed. This created a rift between those in the pro-life movement who saw violence as detrimental to the cause, regardless of the violence endured by aborted children at the hands of their abortionist. The movement finally collapsed following the passage of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act of 1994, signed into law by President Bill Clinton, an avid supporter of the Democratic Party’s pro-abortion platform.
The Red Rose Rescue pictured above took place on December 2nd, 2017, and is the second rescue this year. The rescuers avoid felony FACE law penalties by peacefully counseling mothers inside abortion facilities while they are waiting to have their babies killed. They gift a rose to each mother while offering life affirming choices and the resources necessary to make them.
Words will not end the killing of innocent children in the womb, only actions will. These brave activists are an inspiration to us all. Learn how to take a stand for life and true human equality in your own way. Without you, those facing the cruelty of abortion have no hope. Without you, all is lost.
