Operation Save America Denounces Court Ruling

The day after the court trial and conviction of 3 Christian sidewalk
counselors in Jackson, Mississippi, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
ruled that the same abortion facility may continue their murderous rampage
against innocent children made in the image of God. This unjust ruling
came even though the abortion facility could not meet the state’s
statutory restrictions.

The Appeals Court ruled against the 2012 Mississippi law that required
abortionists to obtain hospital privileges within 30 miles of the abortion
facility. This Mississippi law, although nearly identical to similar laws
in nine other states, was found to be unconstitutional. The court stated,
“it would create an undue burden on women.” It would force other nearby
states to take on “constitutional responsibilities.”

Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, National Director of Operation Rescue
National/Operation Save America (OSA), cited the fact that this same 5th
Circuit Court of Appeals just recently upheld the same law in the State of
Texas as constitutional. He called this new ruling, “Schizophrenic.” He
added, “Although extremely disappointed, I am not surprised, however.
Courts throughout America under the color of law have defended the
lawlessness of child sacrifice and the shedding of innocent blood since
Roe vs. Wade.”

Former Las Vegas Police Officer, Rev. Chet Gallagher, was one of those
arrested while preaching on the public sidewalk outside of the same
Jackson, Mississippi abortion mill. He was subsequently convicted in
criminal court on July 28 for “Interfering with a business.” In response
to this ruling, Rev. Gallagher quoted Job 9:24, which states, “When the
land falls into the hands of the wicked He (God) blindfolds its judges. If
it is not He that does it, who is it?”

Rev. Gallagher went on to say, “I am honored to have been convicted of
interfering with any business that murders innocent children made in the
image of God. However, as long as the church is complicit in abortion, the
shedding of innocent blood, America will remain at enmity with God. His
just judgment includes blindfolding our own judges and unjust decrees.”
