When a woman vandalized the post-abortion memorial crosses at the 40 day prayer vigil in front of the Bakersfield FPA abortion chamber, a teenage vigil participant told her to stop. When she reportedly moved toward him in a threatening manner, the teenager sprayed her with pepper spray to thwart an anticipated assault.

About 30 minutes later, the woman returned with her husband, who shouted death threats, claiming that he was “god” and joined his wife in further vandalizing vigil resources. During this time, the prayer vigil continued uninterrupted.

“Call the police right now, someone’s about to die – call the f***ing police” the pro-choice man shouts.

“I am your F***ing god”, the pro-choicer who identified himself as Christopher King screams.

Police eventually arrested the husband for vandalism, but refused to consider his death threats in spite of many witnesses.

The wife, who was not arrested, began returning to the scene of the crime daily to video vigil participants, then began posting pro-abortion signs around the abortion chamber and harassing vigil participants.

SecurityGuard
In January of 2013 hree abortion protesters, including a 15-year-old, were sprayed with pepper spray by a security guard outside Mississippi’s only abortion clinic.

A Year later, pro-life activists spoke with Roy, the security guard outside of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, about the incident. They posted a video of the conversation to YouTube:

Security guard Roy Benjamin was asked why he sprayed the pastor in the face with the pepper spray and he responded, “I don’t owe nobody an explanation.”

When asked about the little boy he sprayed, Roy said, “That little boy should have been at school.”

When the pro-lifer told Roy that people die from pepper spray, he stated, “I don’t care, I don’t care. People die here everyday.”

When the pro-lifer acknowledged that people die every day at the abortion clinic Roy protects he said, ” I Don’t care, it’s not my problem.”

She said, ” All you’re here is to make money?”

Roy Benjamin Jackson WHO security guard

Roy replied, “That’s it. It’s not my problem…I’m not here getting no abortion, I could care less….

Asked by the pro-lifer, “You don’t care if anyone is being killed?’

Roy responded, “I don’t care, I don’t care…Regardless of what they are doing, it’s not none of you all’s business. It’s not.”

Roy Benjamin was found guilty of four counts of simple assault in November of 2013, despite this aggression , the abortion clinic continues to employ him.

On the date of the pepper spray attack, Jackson police spokeswoman Colendula Green says the three protesters got into an argument with the guard after he turned on a sprinkler system and got them wet outside the Jackson Women’s Health Organization in north Jackson. ( More details from OneNewsNow)

According to one of the victims, “He sprayed me in my mouth,” Cal Zastrow said. “So, it went into the back of my mouth and into my throat and up to my eyeballs.”

He immediately fell to the ground. Zastrow’s 15-year-old son, Jim, and a third male, Doug Lane, were also incapacitated by the spray.

Zastrow later filed a criminal complaint against Benjamin.

“[Benjamin’s] attorney entered a ‘no contest’ plea on four counts of ‘simple assault’ for pepper-spraying peaceful pro-lifers, and hospitalizing my son Jim and I,” Zastrow explained. “The attorney expressed her intention to appeal in Hinds County Court after Judge Malouf found Benjamin guilty on all four counts.”

Benjamin was fined $250 plus court costs, and was sentenced to 6 months of unsupervised probation. He also received a suspended 30-day jail sentence. The appeal will result in a new trial, also known as a trial de novo.

ABORTION PROTESTERS SAY THEY WERE PEPPER SPRAYED

SecurityGuard
Jackson police say three abortion protesters, including a 15-year-old, have indicated they will press charges against a security guard they say sprayed them with pepper spray outside Mississippi’s only abortion clinic.

Jackson police spokeswoman Colendula Green says the three protesters got into an argument with the guard Wednesday morning after he turned on a sprinkler system and got them wet outside the Jackson Women’s Health Organization in north Jackson. ( More details from OneNewsNow)

Green says the guard could face three counts of simple assault if the three press charges.

Green says the three were treated at Jackson hospital. She did not have their names.

Groups from both sides of the abortion issue have been demonstrating outside the clinic this week. Tuesday was the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision.

Attacked by security guard
Early on Wednesday, one of the pro-lifers outside the Jackson clinic was attacked. A church service was being held and leaflets distributed on the public sidewalk led by Doug Lane, a board member of Pro-Life Mississippi and director of Pastors for Life Mississippi.

“They took a lawn sprinkler and placed in on the public sidewalk where we normally stand and turned that on,” he tells OneNewsNow, “and there was a discussion between one of our people and the security guard about how could they do that.”

While the pro-lifers posed no threat, Lane says evidently the security guard did not like something that was said. “And he pulled his mace out, lunged forward, and sprayed this gentleman and his minor son with mace,” he explains. “They were standing on the public sidewalk. I was about 15 feet from there, and he came up and sprayed me.”

Lane has already been in touch with attorneys who are making plans for legal action. As soon as he recovers from the mace, Lane plans to be back at the clinic to convince women to give their unborn child life.

From Christian News Network:

Mississippi were hospitalized this morning after being incapacitated with pepper spray by a guard as they sang hymns outside of the last abortion facility in the state.
The incident took place at approximately 8:30 this morning as the Christians stood on the public sidewalk outside of Jackson Women’s Health Organization in the state capital. As previously reported, the location, being the last abortion facility in Mississippi, may possibly close this year as it is unable to comply with state law.

Cal Zastrow, one of the men that was struck by the pepper spray this morning, told Christian News Network that the guard, Roy Benjamin, did not want the Christians anywhere near the facility.

“He came off the abortion mill property and put an oscillating sprinkler on the sidewalk to get all the pro-lifers wet,” Zastrow explained. “My 15-year-old held his boot over the sprinkler, so the bottom of his boot was getting sprayed but he wasn’t.”

However, just moments later as Zastrow and the others were singing hymns on the sidewalk, Benjamin began to unleash pepper spray on those gathered.
“He sprayed me in my mouth,” Zastrow said. “So, it went into the back of my mouth and into my throat and up to my eyeballs.”
