The vigil is the initiative of the Catholic group, Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary Crusade For Life, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The group has committed to holding round-the clock prayer vigils in Wichita twice a year until Women's Health Care Services closes.
Efforts are also underway to reinstate 30 criminal charges against Tiller for committing illegal late-term abortions. The charges were laid in December, but they were dismissed the following day at the request of District Attorney Nola Foulston. The merits of the case have never been questioned.
A campaign is ongoing to persuade members of the Kansas House to pass a resolution that would compel the current attorney general, Paul Morrison, to prosecute Tiller. An Ohio group has launched a national petition to gather signatures in support of such an effort.
Operation Rescue is encouraging those who cannot make it to Wichita to fast and pray over the weekend for an end to abortion.
.- Christians from Louisiana and other states will hold a 72-hour prayer vigil outside George Tiller’s infamous Wichita abortion clinic, beginning March 23 and running through to March 25.
