Operation Rescue and the Christian Defense Coalition to hold a press conference in Washington, D.C. today to discuss the murder and other threats against pro-life leaders
Owosso, MI A pro-life activist gunned down this morning as he peacefully held a picture of a baby with the word Life outside a high school in Owosso, Michigan. The victim is Jim Pouillon, a well known activist in the Owosso area and a friend of Operation Rescue.
A suspect was arrested about 45 minutes after the shooting and is now in police custody.
We are stunned by Jims murder. We extend our condolences to the family and share in their grief over his loss. His life was characterized by his love and concern of the vulnerable, and he will be greatly missed, said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
We denounce this senseless act of violence in the strongest terms, and pray that this murderer will be swiftly brought to justice.
This shooting comes in the wake of hundreds of death threats that have been received by Operation Rescue and other pro-life organizations over the past three months.
Operation Rescue and the Christian Defense Coalition will hold a press conference today in Washington DC to discuss this senseless murder and threats against the pro-life community.
Press Conference Details:
Friday, September 11, 2009 2:30 PM Outside the U.S. Department of Justice 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC Speakers will include Troy Newman, Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney of the Chrisitan Defense Coalition, and other pro-life leaders. We have received literally hundreds of death threats in the past three months. Our office has been vandalized three times. Just yesterday, the FBI was in our office and picked up a stack of threatening letters that we received, said Newman. We denounce violence in the strongest terms. The bloodshed must stop both inside and outside of the abortion clinics.
I wonder if the alphabets will pick this up?/s

All that for protecting life... Let me put an acceptable version of “Keep Abortion Legal” - let’s qualify that murderer as a “fetus”.

Do the FReepres in town know about this?
Not sure, I think we need a new one called NOBS.
I am awaiting the condemnations by national political figures who were so quick to offer them when Dr. Tiller of Wichita (who performed countless thousands of late term abortions during his lengthy career) was the victim.
I don’t know ... I just got wind of it myself ... how can they be contacted in this regard?
Hope they read one of their our threads...I’m sure someone will hear of it somehow...they would probably come here to get news...
Good point,where`s Barky`s condemnation?
Time for open carry.
Just the simple act of holding a baby picture with the word 'Life' will get you gunned down by the Radical Left, whose only joy in life is death, murder, violence, abortion...
Prayers for Jim Pouillon and his family.
left wing terrorist, where is the outrage?
It is a sad world in which we live.
LOL that would at least counteract CBS.
In one account I read, he was holding a sign with a picture of a baby and the word Life. Now I read that it was a ‘graphic image’ (gory). I am totally against graphic & gory images in a pro-life context. All it does is repulse; it doesn’t move any hearts.
