Abortion advocate throws Molotov cocktail at pro-lifers outside Planned Parenthood
Last month, a 52-year-old Texas woman was arrested and charged with assault after witnesses say she threw a Molotov cocktail device at pro-lifers praying outside an Austin Planned Parenthood. Police identified the perpetrator as Melanie Maria Toney who admitted to throwing the device.
Pro-lifer Ruth Allwein who was praying during the 40 Days for Life campaign said this was not the first time a pro-choicer had thrown things at her. Allwein said she immediately backed away when she noticed that the bottle had an ignited wick in it. She then stomped out the fire and pulled out the wick to make sure the fire did not make contact with the contents of the bottle
A video unearthed after the violent incident revealed that Toney had previously testified against restrictive abortion laws in Texas.
She told the panel that she opposed the pro-life bill, was a nurse and a mother of three including her daughter who said she was representing.
Toney’s testimony starts at 4:44 on the video:
