A Kansas City abortion clinic employed rammed into a noticeably pregnant pro-life volunteer. According to Operation Rescue:
An abortion clinic employee attacked a pregnant pro-life volunteer outside the Central Family Medicine abortion clinic in Kansas City, Kansas, while she was engaged in peaceful, First Amendment activity.
On November 14, 2009, an unidentified abortion clinic employee came out of the Central Family Medicine abortion clinic and began to taunt the pro-lifers. Her verbal abuse escalated into violence as she rammed her shoulder into sidewalk counselor Jennifer McCoy, who is noticeably six months pregnant. A photograph taken by protest leader Mark Gietzen of the Kansas Coalition for Life shows McCoy recoiling and bracing for the hard impact that occurred a split second later.
Police were summoned, but the abortion worker attempted to flee the scene before they could arrive. McCoy followed the woman to keep her from evading the police. After realizing that she could not get away, the worker returned to the abortion clinic where she hid behind locked doors.
Moral Outcry points out that an abortion clinic bubble law exists in Chicago:
The measure creates 8-foot zones around people within 50 feet of an abortion facility. Anyone who enters that space without consent could face a $500 fine.
As most people that have been part of abortion clinic protests and outreaches can tell you (including this present author), in reality those that are seeking to save the lives of the babies being destroyed in the facility are the ones that are most often in danger of being attacked, as this present story shows. Perhaps we can take a cue from Planned Parenthood (who praised the “bubble” law) and seek to create a legal bubble of protection around pro-life volunteers! Moral Outrcy declared:
… perhaps we need protection from abortion workers! You know, the ones who care about women so much they ‘ram’ a six months pregnant woman on a sidewalk. And then run inside the clinic to escape police.
Now that’s “Women’s Healthcare”.
