Troy Newman is the head of the prolife activist group Operation Rescue and on the board of the Center for Medical Policy (which made the Planned Parenthood aborted baby selling parts videos). Newman was invited to Australia for a 10 day speaking tour by Australia Right to Life. His visa was revoked and when he landed in Australia he was arrested and deported.
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 not 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false accusations brought by Australian pro-abortion activists and news media, Newman found out yesterday that his visa was revoked by the Australian government. LifeNews
Troy Newman Takes a Hit for the Cause -Dr Alveda King
It is a shame that in today’s world one country can deny a visit from peaceful person from another country entry across their borders even when the guest is invited by one of that country’s own citizens
That is exactly what is happening in Australia. Let’s not confuse this situation with the current immigration wars. We’re talking about a peaceful visit, not an attempt at illegal entry.
Here’s the situation. Troy Newman of the prolife activist group Operation Rescue was invited to visit Australia for a 10 day speaking tour by Australia Right to Life. While in route Troy found out that his visa has been cancelled by the Minister of Immigration, Peter Dutton at the request of a pro-abortion Member of Parliament, Terri Butler.
Terri alleges that Troy is an activist that advocates violence against abortion providers. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have known Troy for many years and have witnessed his dedication to ending abortion through peaceful means using the law to reign in a lawless industry. Through Operation Rescue, he and Cheryl Sullenger’s investigative works have exposed many abortionists and abortion centers that are operating outside the law.
Troy is no stranger to adversity. He has faced many trials in his work fighting for the unborn and I’m sure this will not be his last trial.
Troy is a prayerful faith filled man who relies on strength and direction from God.
As James 1:2-4 says, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” NIV Read more at PriestForLife
