President of Pro-Life Christian Organization Calls for Schumer to Resign

Troy Newman, the President of Pro-Life organization “Operation Rescue” is calling for Senate Minority Chuck Schumer to Resign.

Per their website, Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation.

Operation Rescue recently made headlines when it bought and closed an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas and has become perhaps the most visible voice of the pro-life activist movement in America. Its activities are on the cutting edge of the abortion issue, taking direct action to restore legal personhood to the pre-born and stop abortion in obedience to biblical mandates.

From Operation Rescue:

“As the highest ranked Democrat in the Senate, it is intolerable that Schumer would issue direct threats by name to two Supreme Court Justices if they did not vote his way on this case,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “I call on Chuck Schumer to resign. Anyone who can make those kinds of direct and intimidating threats against the nation’s highest court is not fit to serve, and probably belongs behind bars.”

After Schumer’s remarks, Chief Justice John Roberts issued a rebuke to Schumer, saying in a statement, “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”

“In all the contentious cases that have come before the Supreme Court, it is not a coincidence that an abortion case would prompt such alarming conduct.  Abortion is central to the Democrat’s subversive plans for America, and they obviously will stop at nothing to protect it,” said Newman.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced plans to file a motion to censure Schumer for his threatening comments.

“I would call on Schumer to apologize, but we all know he has no shame. So tomorrow I will introduce a motion to censure Schumer for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of #SupremeCourt,” Hawley wrote in a post on Twitter.com.

“We support Sen. Hawley’s motion to censure Schumer, but in addition, Operation Rescue calls on the Department of Justice to investigate Schumer and his threats as crimes,” said Newman.  “When a man called our office and threatened to do us harm because we did not comply with his demands, he was arrested and is now serving time in Federal Prison.  If there is to be equal justice, Schumer should not be held above the law.”
