Abortion Protestors in Court

Abortion Protestors in Court
WLBT-TV - Jackson, MS, USA

Abortion protesters who converged on Jackson this past summer were back in the capital city -- to go before a judge. 

Tuesday morning, 11 members of "Operation Save America" were in municipal court, standing trial for their part in the abortion protests at the State Street abortion clinic. Many of them face charges of violating city sign codes, for carrying large pictures of aborted babies. The protestors and their supporters prayed and sang songs on the steps of the police department headquarters.

Despite their short stay over the summer, members of "Operation Save America" believe they made an impact on pregnant women considering abortion.  

Rev. Flip Benham says, "We're going to court, we're going to give 'em heaven in court, smiling in Jesus' name, thankful that God came to this earth to be with us over 2000 years ago and thankful that we could allow the theology of the church to become the biography in Jackson and lots of little babies were saved this week when we were here in July."  

Some of the protestors claim they were victimized by people offended by their protest.   Some say they didn't receive enough help from the police after they had their cars vandalized and were threatened with physical violence.
