HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TAKE ON ANTI-ABORTION NUTCAKES

Disgusted by the anti-abortion antics of Wichita's Spirit One Christian Center, students from Wichita’s West High School showed up at the Center in protest. In particular, the students were ticked off about that anti-abortion protest the church supported earlier this week at the high school.

The West High students were joined by students from North, Northeast and Southeast high schools and Wichita State. There also were supporters from the Peace and Social Justice Center and others.

It started as a peaceful protest, but the two sides got pretty heated throughout the morning.

Louis Goseland, a senior at West told the Wichita Eagle the anti-abortion group, at the school demonstrations, had lashed out against Muslims and homosexuals in addition to abortion. "We will not tolerate their intolerance," Goseland said.

“Basically, we're wanting to respond to them, and let them know their hate speech wasn't appreciated at West," said Goseland.

On October 3 through 8, Spirit One embarked on a campaign called 'Operation Save America. OSA is an out-growth of the well-known Operation Rescue only OSA chose to specifically targets high-school and college students for protests and demonstrations.

George Harper, a student at West said the OSA anti-abortion people who showed up at his school, “…were harassing students and not allowing them to leave until they took a paper.” Harper also said that the protesters disrupted classes, "They were there for about an hour after school started. They had their speakers aimed at the school."

One brochure passed out at West read, "The bible and the 10 commandments have been outlawed, illegal, made contraband, in your public school. Your Christian rights are being denied you."

Another brochure had to do with Mark Tiller, a local doctor who specializes in abortions. This one stated, "Following the shedding of their innocent blood, he then places the children he has slaughtered on his altar to burn them as an offering to his god. This makes him a priest of Satan." Below this message is a picture of a lady handing a baby to a priest. In the background is a cackling horned demon, his hands dripping with blood.
