Prolife Leader Calls Davis, Karpen, and Gosnell

“Poster Children for Abortion Violations”

Waco, Texas-With the recent media furor surrounding Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis and her pro-abortion filibuster that violated senate procedural rules; Houston abortionist’s Douglas Karpen’s violation of the state of Texas’ mandated informed consent law; and Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s health violations, abortion related violations are front and center. Are these violations isolated incidents or are they warning signs of a hidden and sinister national crisis. According Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, a Waco area pastor and author of the new book, Abortion Violation: America’s Premier National Security Issue, “The intrinsic nature of abortion is violation.”


In Abortion Violation, Thomas argues, “Abortion is a violator. It violates the sacred and the natural. It violates the credibility of the church and the state’s sacred trust to protect life. It violates childhood, motherhood, fatherhood, and families. It violates the medical profession and the health of women. Abortion violates everything it touches. The child in the womb is merely one victim. Yes, there are things that abortion does not violate. But those things-things like greed, lust, selfishness, blood lust-strengthen man’s inhumanity against man.”

Thomas calls Davis, Karpen and Gosnell, “Poster children for abortion violations.” He maintains, “Davis demonstrated there is nothing pro-abortionists won’t violate to advance their cause, whether it is violating procedural rules or the integrity of social media to create a false ‘tweet-storm.’ Such violations should not surprise us. It is the very nature of abortion.” Referring to Gosnell and Karpen, Thomas continues, “These two men are not aberrations. They symbolize the horrific violation that is abortion.”


Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, Abortion Violation is a prolife reference book. Fourteen to-the-point chapters, written in conversational style, expose an area of life which abortion violates–personhood, family, law, God, true spirituality, the kingdom of God, the church, government, the medical profession, the biblical doctrine of blood guiltiness, race relations, the political left, the health of women, and our future. In logical and concise form, Thomas provides the theology necessary to foster a culture of life. A perfect reference for pro-lifers, home-schools, Bible studies, small groups studies, and law and history students; it retails for $24.99.

Abortion Violation should wake you up, inspire you, and drive you to your knees, which is exactly where we all need to be.”

Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Founder of Highlands Ministries

Teaching Fellow at Ligonier Ministries


“Among those of us who have dedicated our lives to fighting the scourge of legalized abortion, it is both natural and healthy that we do not all perceive the battle in the same way. In this book, Rusty gives a perspective that was born from the marriage of theological soundness and frontline activism. He shows us that the path America has chosen runs past shadows where the consequences of evil pace back and forth like hungry tigers. They stare at us and they wait for their moment, and the only question is whether we will turn back before God’s protective patience runs out.”

Mark Crutcher, President, Life Dynamics Incorporated


“I’ve been blessed to have met a lot of great Christian brothers and sisters over the last thirty years. Some have been intercessors, others thinkers, some communicators and prophets, and then there are the warriors. But Rusty is the rarest of the ‘rare-bird’ aviary I have been privileged to nest in: a man who combines all these vital gifting and callings into one bald-headed Elijah-like package. He is a man for these ‘cup of the Amorite’ (Genesis 15:16) times. And this important book is just his latest communiqué from the front lines.”


Eric Holmberg, Founder of the Apologetics Group



“I have spent many years in the battle alongside Pastor Rusty. We have heard each other preach on many occasions, in Churches, out on the public streets of America, at memorial services and in front of the structures of power in Washington, D.C. and various state capitals…In all of this, I have always been inspired by Pastor Rusty’s deep commitment to this cause. His life shows a heart broken over abortion. He has shed tears for the babies. And this is what it takes. One of my favorite memories of times with Pastor Rusty [was when] he was giving the sermon at a national pro-life rally, and he was quoting Saint Paul who said that he does not fight as if he was shadow-boxing. And Rusty was jumping all over the stage making this point, quoting Paul and swinging his hands in the air. “And when the Church swings,” he proclaimed at the top of his voice, “She’s supposed to hit something!” Pastor Rusty swings and hits the evil of abortion with this book. ”
