Pro-choicer arrested for punching pro-life grandmother

An Iowa City man has been accused of punching a 78-year-old abortion protestor.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, 30-year-old Man Chun John Ma allegedly punched a 78-year-old female in the back while she was holding an anti-abortion sign on the corner of Highway 1 and Riverside Drive at about 9:20 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say the woman’s husband confronted Ma and stood with him until officers arrived on the scene.

After being read his Miranda rights, Ma told officers he found anti-abortion strange and admitted that he knew his actions were wrong and should not have struck the woman, according to police.

Ma has been charged with a serious misdemeanor count of assault causing bodily injury.
