CORRECTION: ARTICLE ON GERMAN PASTOR LERLE RETRACTED

The LifeSiteNews.com story published Tuesday on the jailing of Pastor Lerle in Germany has been retracted after LifeSiteNews.com was informed that we were working with false information from trusted news sources.  While Pastor Lerle has in the past been jailed for anti-abortion activities his current one year imprisonment stemmed solely from charges of holocaust denial and not from comparing abortion to the Nazi Holocaust as we erroneously reported Tuesday.   My sincere apologies for this serious error.   John-Henry Westen  Editor  LifeSiteNews.com
