Four Pro-Lifers Arrested

MI abortion chamber in spotlight

Four pro-life activists were arrested in connection with a Red Rose Rescue conducted at the Heritage Women's Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Red Rose Rescue is an organization using the tactic of going directly into abortion chambers unnannounced and speaking directly to women in the waiting room, waiting to abort their children — in effect, trespassing.

They give the women red roses, from which the effort gets its name.

When pro-lifers show up for a Red Rose Rescue, the mission is to rescue babies and their mothers, period. Nothing stands in the way.

Participants know they are responding to dire circumstances of imminent peril. The stakes are high.

"This is real, you know? The police officer said, 'Don't you know that there are homicides happening in this city?' And I said, 'Officer, what do you think is happening here?'"

Monica Miller, founder and director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, organized this Grand Rapids rescue. She's been a warrior in the abortion wars for more than four decades and helped develop the Red Rose Rescue tactic.

The current pandemic, this time, caused a change in tactics. Participants did not go inside. Instead, they approached abortion-minded women in the parking lot, still trespassing.

As it turns out, talking with the moms before they are in the facility may actually be more effective than trying to talk with them in the waiting room.

But either way, the police are always going to be part of the mix. The Red Rose Rescue isn't for the fainthearted.

As another car and another mom and her baby pull into the driveway, Miller calls out, "Who's coming with me?"
