Anti-abortion group protests anti-abortion church

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - A national anti-abortion group is targeting an anti-abortion church among the many protests it's holding across Charlotte, the site of its national conference.

Members of Operation Save America have protested outside the Central Church of God in Charlotte twice this week. Protest leader Rusty Lee Thomas says the group's members didn't think the church was doing enough to fight abortion.

Central Church of God pastor Loran Livingston says he doesn't agree with Operation Save America's methods of confronting passers-by with graphic pictures of aborted fetuses.

The Texas group is holding its convention in Charlotte this week. It has also held protests on downtown Charlotte streets and highway overpasses.
