Pro-Life Activists Arrested at New Jersey Abortion Clinic

Five pro-life activists were arrested Saturday at the “Options for Women” abortion center in Plainfield, New Jersey.

The activists were acting as a part of the Red Rose Rescue campaign. While advocating for the lives of unborn children at the New Jersey clinic, they gave out roses with notes attached. The notes read, “You were made to love and to be loved...your goodness is greater than the difficulties of your situation. Circumstances in life change. A new life, however tiny, brings the promise of unrepeatable joy.” The contact information for crisis pregnancy centers was also printed on the notes. This is not the first time pro-life activists have been arrested at abortion centers, and it is unlikely to be the last.

“The Red Rose Rescue is an act of charity for women who feel for whatever reason they must have their innocent unborn children killed,” said spokeswoman Lisa Hart. “Those who took part were willing to embrace risks for these women and their babies. We will go into the very places where the unborn are put to death and extend help to the moms.”

She further explained that activists participating in the Red Rose Rescue campaign will stay at abortion centers even if their message is rejected to stay in solidarity with the children being killed there.
