A Kansas man was charged in Federal Court yesterday with making threats last August to kill Operation Rescue staff members and rape their daughters.

Christopher M. Thompson, 22, faces three counts of threatening communications for a series of phone calls to Operation Rescue’s office and to one staff member’s cell phone. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 fines for each count.

Thompson told a female Operation Rescue employee that he was going to kill her and her entire family after he sexually assaulted two female family members. He said that he had often followed the staffer and female family members around Wichita, Kansas, the location of Operation Rescue’s national headquarters, and said he knew where the staffer lived.

In addition to the threats of murder and sexual violence, the messages also contained disturbing satanic overtones.

“We are very relieved that this man has been criminally charged. We take threats like this very seriously and always report them to law enforcement. We simply are not going to take any risks with the safety of our staff and our families,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We look forward to the conclusion of this case and pray justice will be served.”
