Operation Rescue, a leading pro-life Christian organization, conducted a peaceful outreach outside the public funeral service for an abortion centre “chaplain” Sunday.
George Gardner worked at George Tiller's late-term abortion centre, Women's Health Care Services. He baptized the remains of aborted children and falsely encouraged women that God somehow favored their abortions, said Operation Rescue.
The outreach also included a memorial to the pre-born babies that were aborted during his employment at the centre. Operation Rescue displayed an infant-sized casket, with a banner that read "Gardner's Legacy: The Human Tragedy of Aborted Babies. Who mourns for them?" Other demonstrators held signs, with verses from Scripture.
Demonstrators offered salvation tracts to funeral attendees, who included late-term abortionist George Tiller and his wife, Jeanne. A salvation tract was also handed to Candy Kruger, who escorts women into the abortion centre. Kruger threw her lit cigarette at one of the demonstrators, hitting her.
Some people thanked the members of Operation Rescue for their presence while a few expressed disapproval.
