An employee of late-term abortionist George R Tiller stole a nativity scene belonging to Operation Rescue that had been displayed among crosses and other religious items on the public property outside the abortion clinic gate.
The plastic Nativity Scene, consisting of likenesses of Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, and a donkey were placed outside the notorious abortion clinic, as part of a national campaign called The Nativity Project.
The Nativity Project was launched by the Christian Defense Coalition and Faith and Action for the purpose of affirming the message of Christ’s Incarnation as well as the rights to free speech and religious expression.
… John Rayburn, an employee of Tiller’s who supplies security services for the abortionist, told witnesses that the display was “offensive” to him. He picked up the display and placed it behind the fence that surrounds the abortion clinic parking lot.
