Eight pro-life leaders, including Operation Rescue‘s Troy Newman, were arrested this morning outside House Speaker John Boehner’s office while kneeling in prayer and in protest that a vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has not received a promised vote.

Other leaders placed under arrest included pro-life blogger Jill Stanek, Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, and Katie Mahoney, a long-time pro-life spokesperson.
