Life News reports that one of the pro-life people behind the Planned Parenthood videos has been arrested in Australia because of hateful lies told by pro-death activists. Details are below.
American pro-life activist Troy Newman is on the board of directors of the Center for Medical Policy, which is responsible for the series of 10 videos showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts.
This week, he was slated to head to Australia for a pro-life speaking tour at the invitation of a local pro-life group, but the Australian government is preventing him from entering the country after complaints by abortion advocates. According to the pro-life group Operation Rescue, which Newman heads, the Australian government is relying on false allegations that Newman supports killing abortion practitioners as its reason for now allowing him entry.
Due to viciously false accusations brought by Australian pro-abortion activists and news media, Newman found out yesterday that his visa was revoked by the Australian government. Newman has never advocated violence and in fact, urges pro-life activists to work within the governmental and legal system to accomplish change.
“Newman has been detained in Melbourne Australia pending deportation due to his visa being cancelled at the request of pro-abortion bullies who were bent on silencing Newman’s message of peaceful, legal activism on behalf of pre-born babies,” Operation Rescue said. “Newman’s deportation could take up to 72 hours. Meanwhile, his wife, Mellissa, whose visa is still active, is left alone in a foreign country with no luggage.”
