Pro-lifers who were attacked by pro-choice woman: We believe in forgiveness

Pro-lifers from the group Created Equal say they are willing to forgive a violent pro-choice woman who attacked them as they exercised their 1st Amendment Rights in Ohio.

Fox and Friends Created Equal

Mark Harrington founder of Created Equal and Seth Drayer who was attacked were on Fox and Friends when they made the statement that they were willing to drop the charges if the pro-choice woman who attacked them would sit down and speak with them:

“We’re willing to drop the charges,” Harrington tells Fox News, “In fact, I’ve asked for a meeting with her – if she’s willing to apologize. Seth and I are both Christians, we believe in forgiveness, we’ve already forgiven her. But, if she’s not remorseful she needs to own up to what she’s done.”

The attack took place this week as I detailed in my previous post:

According to the pro-life group, Created Equal, Seth Drayer, Created Equal’s Director of Training, was physically attacked while leading their interns in outreach in downtown Columbus, OH.


At first the angry pro-choice woman began encroaching into the private space of the pro-life teen:


Proabort 2

Proabort 3


She then kicks the sign the pro-life teen was displaying:

Proabort 4

Next she turns her vicious anger against the camera person – attacking him:

Proabort 5 camera

Proabort 6 attacks cameraman

And in a true cowardly fashion- she runs off vandalizing more signs as she goes :

Proabort 7 runs off

Proabort 8 more vandalism

When warned that police have been called she responds with a ton of expletives and assaults the pro-lifer again:

proabort 9

She tells him, “No uterus – no right to talk about it. Understand me mother-fu****?”

She then boards a city bus and before it can leave- the police arrest her:

proabort arrested

Watch the video: Warning- very graphic language !!

Created Equal’s Executive Director Mark Harrington responded, “Violent attacks on pro-lifers are becoming more common. Pro-lifers need to be winsome and be willing to take verbal and physical abuse if necessary in order to remain faithful to our pledge to be non-violent. We also should take precautions to reduce the likelihood of these attacks, be prepared to film them and prosecute the perpetrators (if necessary) to the fullest extent of the law. We understand the risk we take each time we go into the marketplace of ideas with a message as counter-cultural as showing the victims of abortion. However, despite the threat we will not shrink back from representing the victims…Please pray for the perpetrator of the attack. She is likely post-abortive and needs to come to repentance for the attack.”

  1. Yes, violent attacks on us are indeed becoming more common. Unfortunately, your well-intentioned but poorly considered willingness to drop charges will only embolden further attackers against us. Please understand that “forgiveness” and “dropping charges” are NOT synonyms. Please consider your strategy in light of potential impact on your fellow pro-life activists in the front-line trenches.
