Memorial to unborn, Rachel's Park, vandalized

By SOP newswire

Waco, TX /Christian Newswire/ -- Either late Friday evening or early morning Saturday, Feb. 2nd, Rachel's Park Memorial was tragically vandalized. The perpetrator or perpetrators callously desecrated the hollowed grounds dedicated to the preborn babies lost to the sin and crime of abortion. Their instrument of choice was a vehicle, probably an SUV or Jeep. Two to three hundred crosses were destroyed out of the four thousand crosses that represent the four thousand children that die each and every day in America by the cruel act of abortion.

Rachel's Park Memorial was officially dedicated in the city of Waco on January 22nd, 2000 at Church on the Rock, 4720 N. 19th St. There are several features to the park that are designed to help post-abortive families grieve their loss and prayerfully find the forgiveness of God as they repent of their involvement in aborting their children.

"Since our nation allows for the desecration and destruction of God's little image-bearers, the pre-born children, one should not find it surprising when a memorial that honors their deaths is violated as well," stated Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, Founder and Director of Rachel's Park Memorial. "I pray those who are responsible will be brought to justice that will ultimately drive them to saving grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord."

The vehicle responsible probably suffered damage. The crosses were planted into the ground with steel rebar. If anyone has knowledge of an SUV or Jeep that needs repairs for tires or the undercarriage, please notify the Waco Police Department immediately at 750- 7500.

For more information or interviews contact Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas at 254-715-3134.
