The media’s glaring failure to report pro-abortion violence

violence, abuse

 

Violence against pro-life groups and individuals has been underreported by mainstream media outlets even though it occurs on a fairly regular basis and has for decades. While pro-life activists and organizations have received their share of threats (phone calls, mail, personal threats, online, etc.), more serious attacks of vandalism and even violent assault take place against pro-lifers with little mention in the press.

The false painting of pro-life groups as hateful and violent even led to a deranged gunman seeking to shoot staff at the pro-life Family Research Council. In 2009, Harlan Drake shot and murdered pro-life activist James Pouillon, while Pouillon displayed images of babies outside a Michigan school. Recently a man was indicted on federal charges after threatening to kill or rape members of Operation Rescue. Other threats to pro-lifers involving guns — including one by an abortionist — have thus far ended peacefully.

 

Live Action News previously documented an act of arson committed against Janet Folger Porter, who wrote about the incident in her book, True to Life, where she published this image of her car which was burned:

 

The abortion lobby, with the help of complicit pro-abortion media has portrayed pro-lifers as “violent” with regularity. The effort is led by the National Abortion Federation (NAF), which collects alleged “violence and disruption” claims from abortion providers and publishes them annually. While there are serious incidents listed, the report lacks evidence that every alleged act is being committed by pro-life advocates and not a disgruntled employee, angry family member, or random criminal. In addition, NAF pads the numbers by including incidents of non-violent civil disobedience and protest.

Unfortunately, while pro-life groups focus on rescuing babies and helping their mothers, to my knowledge, there is not currently a national system to report pro-abortion violence. However violence has been documented by Live Action News and other groups.

Brian Clowes at Human Life International collected data on pro-choice violence for many years. According to a report from Life News, Clowes published 1,200 pages of descriptions and documentation. The research, no longer published online, tracked violence committed by abortion providers (some in prison for murder), by pro-choice men who assaulted or murdered girlfriends for refusing to submit to abortion, and by pro-choice supporters who attacked pro-life sidewalk counselors.

“If people truly understood how backwards the media narrative is regarding the supposed intolerance and violence of pro-lifers, compared to that of ‘pro-choicers,’ we would be having a very different conversation about abortion in our nation today,” Clowes once told the Susan B. Anthony List.

The pro-life group Life Dynamics recently issued a report that shows abortion providers have been sexually assaulting and raping their clients for years. “In my 1996 book, Lime 5, I referenced more than 30 documented criminal cases in which abortion clinic doctors had been charged with raping or sexually assaulting their patients. In just these few cases, several hundred women were known to have been victimized,” president Mark Crutcher noted. There are also many other reported cases.

Life Dynamics also tracked incidents of forced abortion, and when the pro-life group created a tool called a “force form” to help protect women and thwart coercion, they claimed abortion advocates condemned it. Life Dynamics wrote:

Of course, the abortion industry has known for years that forced abortions are a problem – there have even been discussions about it at National Abortion Federation conferences. The discussions at these meetings reveal that the same people who advocate for “choice” to the media, politicians, and the country – [have] a stance of “convenient indifference” when it comes to women being forced to get abortions. They acknowledge its existence and talk about it in disapproving tones, while making it clear that they feel no obligation to let it influence the way they deal with these women.

In the interest of full disclosure, I conducted research for Life Dynamics’ “Under the Radar” report documenting how women who refuse to submit to abortion are attacked or assaulted. As the report details, the media is quite silent about this form of abortion-related violence:

[W]hen we were able to obtain copies of police reports, indictments, court records or other similar documentation for these cases, they would almost universally show that when a perpetrator is confronted by an unwanted pregnancy, his first response is not violence but a demand that his partner have an abortion. When violence ensues, it is inevitably a reaction to her refusal to comply.

However, the media’s coverage of these incidents often contains no mention of abortion. Instead, they either portray women who are attacked for refusing to have abortions as women who are attacked for getting pregnant, or they characterize the incident as one of simple “domestic violence” in which the victim’s pregnancy is basically inconsequential.

While the media touts pro-abortion violence statistics, consistently left out is the fact that women are injured and even killed by the abortion industry — Laura Hope Smith, and like Planned Parenthood patients Cree-Erwin and Tonya Reaves. I attended the funeral of Carolina Gutierrez and previously detailed how her agonizing death following her legal abortion took weeks. The infection was so horrific, she developed gangrene, enduring amputations prior to her death.

As we move closer to fully abolishing abortion in the United States, violence against pro-lifers is expected to intensify. But, despite the dangers, every pro-life activist and organization understands that the act of abortion itself is the most heinous form of violence on innocent preborn babies.

Disorderly conduct charged against man who attacked pro-life group

In a newly released clip from the pro-life group Created Equal Films, on May 10, 2016, a Columbus, OH resident roughed up one of our outreach team members even before he had an opportunity to dialogue with his intended audience. Outraged by even the notion of pictures of aborted babies being shown, he went on a tirade.

The video shows the abortion advocate assaulting Ian Spencer, Outreach Director, for Created Equal as he prepared his team to discuss abortion with students at Gahanna Lincoln High School in Columbus, OH. While attacking Ian, he refuses to admit what he is doing is violent.

According to Created Equal:

When Ian requests he stop violating our right to free speech, he responds: “I am not physically assaulting anyone.” Nevertheless, he does not stop arguing that he has a right to threaten our team—all the while telling them “to leave this area … right now.”

Police arrived on the scene shortly after the attack. Later that day, the perpetrator was cited for a fourth degree misdemeanor of disorderly conduct.</blockquot

I admire the courage of pro-life side walk counselors

I admire courage and especially the courage of pro-life sidewalk counselors. Case in point, most people would back away from anyone threatening them while they stood for preborn children outside an abortion clinic but not veteran pro-life counselor Michele Herzog.

Michele-Herzog-2-158x300

In full disclosure, I know Michele very well. We both stood in the trenches together for years outside South Florida abortion clinics. She and I also had the unfortunate opportunity to attend the funeral of a woman who died from a legal abortion. The woman’s name was Carolina Gutierrez and I wrote about that experience to some degree here.

Michele has experienced abortion and therefore she has a lot of compassion for the women. But after becoming aware of the reality of what abortion does to the child, Michele also takes an unrelenting stand for the babies. Time after time I have watched Michele stand her ground in defense of little babies. She has been the recipient of all sorts of threats over her many years outside abortion facilities. But, Michele remained unyielding even when rocks were being thrown at her. She also stood up to an abortionist who had given her the most obscene gestures.

Michele represents a number of pro-life warriors who faithfully stand as the last defense to cry out for children about to be executed. Everyone is a hero and each should be commended. Often, they stand alone and a majority of what they receive is negative – yet they return day after day after day. I know this, because, although I know some personally I also follow many of these faithful activists on Facebook and I read the daily comments they post. Many share how often they are abused by the police, abortion clinic staff, passers-by, and patients.

It was such a post that prompted me to write this piece. It took place outside a Florida abortion clinic earlier this month. Michele and others were crying out for a baby whose mother had just driven into the Epoc abortion clinic. Michele wrote about what took place:

“This woman came with her abortion bound friend to the Epoc abortuary on Saturday and was as vile and wicked as they come. She laughed and encouraged her friend to go through with killing her baby and then left her there. Sandra and I wanted to make sure to plead with her one more time to do what she could to get her friend out and to save the innocent baby, so we waited at the corner.”

“When I first got there she told me she was going to kick my ___ if I didn’t move away. I had given the ministry phone to Sandra’s daughter so she could take pictures and video throughout the afternoon and in this video the woman in the car was ready to jump out after Sandra’s daughter.” That video can be viewed here.

In her usual calm way, Michele asked the woman if she was issuing a threat and reiterated her desire to see her friend’s baby saved from abortion. Michele then pointed out to the woman that the clinic’s owner has no license. James Pendergraft’s medical license has been suspended indefinitely by the state medical board and he was recently arrested in South Carolina for operating an illegal mobile abortion clinic there.

“We tell every abortion bound women and their companions of Pendergraft’s arrest and that they found with instruments with old blood and tissue on them. We tell them of the mobile abortion clinic he was running and the drugs found. Two couples left that day and chose life for their babies, but the rest of the women….none of that seemed to faze them,” she told Live Action News.

Instead of going back to the abortion clinic and warning her friend or simply driving away, the abortion supporter picked up a gallon jug of water she had in her car and hurled it at Michele.

These kind of incidents have become regular events for pro-life activists. Earlier this week, another pro-life group had their signs illegally removed by an abortion supporter during an awareness campaign in a public overpass.

The intolerance of advocates of “personal choice” is increasingly more vocal and at times vicious. It is another sign of the desperation that the abortion lobby feels as it looses ground in this war. Given the current environment, it is only a matter of time before another abortion advocate physically harms a pro-lifer.

But, Michele and many others who stand between the baby and death on a daily basis do not think about their own risk. For them, their one and only concern is to stop the killing of each baby that day. Perhaps water is not such a scary thing – but – the impressive thing I noted in Michele’s latest video was how unflinching she was knowing the woman was threatening her. The truth is, I would have flinched or ducked or maybe even backed down. But not Michele and that is why I admire her courage and it is why I admire the courage of so many pro-life activists across the country.

Women for Hillary? Not so much – exposed as pro-abortion !

Pro-lifers expose Hillary Clinton’s abortion support outside an Ohio event where a relatively small crowd of Clinton supporters gathered.

The grassroots organizing met last Thursday in downtown Columbus dubbed “Women for Hillary” was a platform where Hillary discussed equal pay for women, paid leave, and abortion.

A press release of the event mentioned Hillary’s support of Planned Parenthood:

    As president, Clinton will protect funding for Planned Parenthood, and will fight Republican efforts to take away women’s right to basic healthcare like affordable birth control,” it said.

FOX’s Ed Henry attended the Ohio rally and tweeted that Hillary’s turnout was poor,”@HillaryClinton about to speak in Columbus, OH — Ohio State campus a few miles away & yet she has few hundred people at event”

Ed Henry Hillary COlumbus

Later adding in later adding in a Fox report that, “Looks looks Ohioan women might not be into Hillary.

Outside the Hillary event, pro-lifers said the Democrat presidential hopeful should not be nominated because she supports abortion.

One women who opposed Hillary for her abortion support said:

    “Hillary Clinton stayed about an hour, spoke to a group of supporters, got them all fired up to support her for President….and she exited and was all smiles…thinking we were FOR her…until she caught sight of the abortion victim images again.”

Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal PAC, included in a group of about 20 pro-life advocates greeted Ms. Clinton with signs that read, “Hillary Clinton supports killing children.”

    Hillary Clinton does not deserve to be the Democrat nominee nor be the President of the United States,” Harrington said.

    She’s disqualified because she supports the killing of preborn babies.” he added.

On a bullhorn to Clinton supporters, Harrington reminded them of Hillary’s support of Planned Parenthood recently exposed for their grisly harvesting of aborted baby parts.

    She also supports the harvesting and trafficking in human baby parts. That’s selling hearts, liver, and lungs.

    “This isn’t about equality, this isn’t about women’s rights. This isn’t about ‘reproductive rights.’ This is about protecting the weak from the strong. Protecting the preborn, the children and protecting them from the hands of Planned Parenthood who not only kills them but sells the baby parts for profit.”

    “A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to kill children and harvesting their baby parts for profit.” Harrington said.

Boehner calls for Planned Parenthood investigation after pro-lifers rally outside demanding they are defunded

Posted in Bonhoeffer, Created Equal, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

Speaker of the House John Boehner called for congressional hearings into the practices of Planned Parenthood shortly after a large group of pro-lifers gathered to demand that the abortion chain which shops up babies for parts be defunded.

Nothing is more precious than life, especially an unborn child. When anyone diminishes an unborn child, we are all hurt, irreversibly so. When an organization monetizes an unborn child – and with the cavalier attitude portrayed in this horrific video – we must all act,” Boehner said.

Earlier today, pro-lifers gathered outside Boehner’s office to call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood as well as Congressional Hearings.

It is important to note that the top Planned Parenthood official is on the video talking about the sale of body parts not tissue, “it is important to note,” stated Rev. Pat Mahoney who helped lead the demonstration along with Mark Harrington who heads the group, Created Equal.

This flag offends me take it down Planned Parenthood

“Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist, a KKK Supporter who spoke at KKK Rallies, who was a Nazi sympathizer, who wanted to reduce the numbers of Black persons,” Rev. Mohoney stated.

He said that America should not be funding such and organization!!

Listen to that press conference here.

AP FISCAL CLIFF A USA DC

In his press release about Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby body parts, Boehner also said he would ask Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to put a stop to the grisly operation despite HHS granting millions of dollars to the abortion giant.

As a start, I have asked our relevant committees to look into this matter. I am also calling on President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to denounce, and stop, these gruesome practices, ” the Ohio Republican added.

OAH HHS Planned Parenthood

Burwell’s Department of Health and Human Services, is very friendly with Planned Parenthood, granting them millions of dollars in tax payer dollars.

As Life Dynamics has previously reported, over 5.6 million dollars in federal money was allocated in July to various Planned Parenthood affiliates under a teen prevention program run by HHS.

TPP Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program Planned Parenthood

That announcement came July 4, 2015 from the Office of Adolescent Health, which is responsible for implementing and administering the national, evidence based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program.

You can read more on that here.

Planned Parenthood 18.75 million HHS

Last week it was discovered that an additional $18.5 million has also been granted to Planned Parenthood by HHS.

The discovery came from a press release published by the largest chain of abortion clinics which covers for pedophiles by not reporting the sexual assaults of some children, that Planned Parenthood received the $18.75 million from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) which is under the Department of Health and Human Services.

Read more on that here.

Will Boehner call on the head of HHS to revoke those grants as well?

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts breech

Through their PR Firm, Planned Parenthood has described the horrific act of chopping up an unborn child after they abort it, as “humanitarian undertakings.”

In addition to Boehner, Texas Governor Gregg Abbott and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal are calling for investigations.

GOP 2016 Presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz, former Texas Governor Rick Perry and Carly Fiorina have condemned the practice as well.

Emotional black woman says demon abortionist cut up her baby

Posted in Created Equal, Demon Seed, post-abortion with tags , , , , , , on May 4, 2015 by saynsumthn

A heart wrenching video uploaded by the pro-life group Created Equal shows why Christians need to go to abortion clinic death mills to advocate for those being led to the slaughter.

While the group was outside an Ohio abortion facility, video shows a post-abortive woman, who stopped by after seeing the pro-lifers , trying to reach patients entering the clinic, telling them, “no one advocated for my son.”

no one advocated for my son abortion

I don’t have my son today,” she said tearfully, “No body advocated for him and I just went in and did it.

As Seth Drayer, counseling with Created Equal, gently calls the woman over to tell her story she tells the pro-lifers, “There are women much older than me that are still aching.”

As she turns to walk away, she says, “Those demons got my baby.”

It appears that she is referring to the abortionist as “that demon” when she says these emotional words:

no one advocated for my son abortion abortionist demon

    “That demon laughed and increased the suction. My baby still wouldn’t come. He went inside with a [unintelligible] . That baby wouldn’t some. And I had time to say STOP! But, I didn’t, it was like a haze. Like a haze – I was watching things- My baby wouldn’t come until he cut him up. And he came out in two pieces. Then afterwards, they said, ‘You want Kool-Aid or cookies?’

As she left, she told the group to keep up the good work even if they reach one mother- they are doing the right thing.

Abortion advocate sings “kill your unborn” while pro-life group shows abortion on JumboTron

Today, Created Equal was on the campus of Ohio State University with their JumboTron, showing an abortion in progress.

Created Equal OSU Abortion

While they were there a shameful abortion Bro-choicer came out and sang a song, “kill your unborn.”

All that we need is another mouth to feed,” he sang, “kill your unborn.”

A report by Life Dynamics this morning quoted, Mark Harrington, the founder of Created Equal who said it was time to up the game and show the public an abortion in progress.

Created Equal is a pro-life group that goes to college campuses and Universities and shows students the truth abortion victims.

It is a controversial method – but has invoked much discussion and has changed multiple views of what abortion is.

And, it looks like their method is working.

Today, this The Columbus Dispatch news video (below) showed the abortion in the background, something almost unheard of in over 42 years of legalized child killing in America and media censorship of abortion.

WTG- Mark Harrington and the entire Created Equal staff – keep up the great work!
