Bringing God's Slaughtered Children To The Winter Olympics
(Christian Gallery News Service, Feb 17, 2002) From the first week of February throughout the duration of the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City Utah, a contingent of front line prolife veterans is making certain that the legions of people visiting the Olympics do not forget that babies are being legally slaughtered on a daily basis in the United States of America and across the world. Following is a report from Ken and Jo Scott with pictures and text that give you a view into the powerful work for the Lord Jesus Christ going on in Salt Lake City, Utah.
THE OLYMPIC TORCH IN SALT LAKE CITY
MIRACLES HAPPEN FROM THE START
We arrived in Utah on the 7th of February. We decided to tour Salt Lake City to get a lay of the land and, as God would have it, we saw a parade passing in front of us. At first we thought it was a PETA animal rights protest parade so--for obvious reasons--we pulled our vans into the line of vehicles making up the parade and became a part of it.
TURNS OUT IT WASN'T A PETA PARADE AT ALL. IT WAS THE TORCH PARADE THAT WAS USHERING IN THE ENTIRE WINTER OLYMPICS!!!!
The PETA people were incensed. PETA moved as far away from us as they could get and still be in the parade.
The people lining the parade route did not know what to think.
Ken and I were in the Van and we were the third vehicle in the parade!
The Torch Parade lasted 2 and one half hours. We drove slow like in a funeral procession at about 2 miles per hour and the parade covered miles.
We found out later that CNN broadcast pictures of the van. We don't have pictures of that, but Jason, a friend that was with us has video. I'll see if he can send you a clip.
We figured we passed at least 25,000 to 30,000 at a minimum.
Is that an awesome example of how God is simply refusing to allow this nation to ignore His children that are being legally slaughtered here?!
Most Utah Police Were Sympathetic
The police were very sympathetic to our cause. It was as though we were in the Twilight Zone. Some of the officers asked for literature, some thought that abortions didn't take place in their state, and most said thank you for what you are doing. There were a few that were not receptive to our message and we dealt with them.
In some of the pictures you'll see cops in black and yellow jackets in front of the Utah Women's Center. They had us go onto clinic property with them for pictures, while we held our signs. One baby was saved at the Utah Women's Clinic.
PROTESTING AT THE OLYMPIC EVENTS
Every day in Salt Lake and Park City there were events that drew
thousands of people. Security was so tight that lines formed for blocks and blocks. We made sure we were there with our signs.
THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST TERRORIST
One such event was an outdoor concert starring the Beach Boys. People were everywhere for blocks just sitting and listening. Our van and Ron Brock's van took the opportunity to circle the crowd for the entire time.
VIOLENT BLOODY INJUSTICE WILL NOT BE IGNORED IN THE USA!
We spent a lot of time at the Mormon Temple. We held the big graphic signs and handed out prolife literature and gospel tracts for hours on end. At the same time our van was parked strategically while the truth truck and Ron Brock's van circled the entire area.
CHRISTIANS CAME HERE FROM ALL OVER THE USA!
God has sent Christians from all over the country to Utah. Everywhere you look on the streets, in the malls, at restaurants, you see Christians passing out gospel tracts. It was a joy to see. All of the Christians were in favor of what we were doing.
SLOC (Salt Lake Olympic Committee), Planned Parenthood, and the Red Cross, along with the Mayor of Salt Lake collaborated to distribute safe sex kits to all the athletes and anyone who walked into a Red Cross tent in Olympic Park. One of the Generation Life kids, 14 years old, walked into a tent and she was offered the safe kit before she even asked for it. The kits were a focus for some of our pickets and so was the blood doping. It used to be that an athlete would get a blood transfusion before his/her event to raise their red blood count. There is a test for that now and the athlete is disqualified if discovered. Now women athletes are getting pregnant and aborting before the event because the red blood count elevates drastically in the first few weeks of the pregnancy. It's the new way to cheat and get away with it. It's horrifying.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN UTAH GETS A WAKE UP CALL
Utah Planned Parenthood was totally shocked when we showed up. No one had ever picketed them before. They called the police, but they were told what we were doing was legal.
In Salt Lake we were able to picket with the large signs, Olympic Square was a different story. They've had an ordinance there since the 80's that say's that you can't carry a sign over 2'x3'. Pat Mahoney along with a new youth prolife group called Generation Life challenged the ordinance, so it will go to court sometime in the future.
We are leaving in the morning to go back until Thursday. We'll send you more pictures when we get back.

I cannot overemphasize how much we need your help now. This Web Site can deter many people from killing their baby. But there are many powerful people doing everything they can think of to keep us off the Internet. There is literally no reason to lose this gift from God except that God's people will not provide the support necessary to keep the publication venue available to the public. But today that is a real possibility. The abortion industry as well as a huge percentage of people who call themselves pro-life are doing everything in their power to keep this web site off the Internet. Won't you help us? So you have arrived here at a turning point. What you decide to do with this appeal will determine whether God's unborn children will continue to have this voice crying out for their deliverance from unjustified slaughter. Will you help us today?
