The Prisoners of Christ List (POC List), a "national directory of 'pro-life prisoners of war,'" was a subsidiary project of Missionaries to the Preborn, which was a spin-off of Operation Rescue. [1]

The List "originally came into being during the late 80's when Christians were being arrested for peacefully protesting outside abortion clinics - also known as 'rescues.' It was a reminder to Christians, that there were peaceful, harmless Christians (in the model of our Lord Jesus Christ) who were suffering in jail for saving of unborn children. These Christians were willing sacrifice themselves, so the unborn could live. ... Since the demise of the rescue movement, the POC List became a list of those who were arrested for doing more than peaceful protest - which was not its original intent." --Steve Wetzel, Missionaries to the Unborn.
