of Defenders was the victim of an assault and battery
at Planned Barrenhood St. Louis on Wednesday, May 11 of this year. Only last week were charges finally filed. Over a month after the assault.
In spite of incontrovertible video evidence (both the cameras of the abortion mill as well as a cell phone video of the incident- the latter was shown to the police on the scene) showing the perpetrator’s initial assault on Mary, when called, the police showed little interest, made no effort to protect Mary and left. Indeed there never was a police report of the initial incident.
After the police left the perpetrator returned
that morning to continue the battery. There were also three witnesses (including Mary) who corroborated the video (see witness report below).
In the original incident that morning Mary was verbally assaulted and shoved by the perp.
The police were called as noted above. The perp returned after the police left and renewed her verbal assault, spit in Mary’s face and then drenched her with a soda. The police were called again. The police filed a report but no charges were forthcoming. There is no doubt had Mary done the same thing she would have been
immediately , and understandably,
It was only last week, over a month since the incident,
and after repeated interventions from pro-life lawyers, that the city finally filed charges. Why should it take a month for charges to be filed when there was so much evidence of the assault and battery from the beginning?
Why the double standard? Why the attempted cover-up?
Last Saturday, June 18 Joel, a security guard employed by the abortion mill assaulted a sidewalk counselor with his car, coming inches from running him over. Again video evidence of the assault. Again the police were called. The results? The police issued a summons against…. the victim of the assault, John Ryan. This security guard makes a habit of racing his car into the driveway and steering it toward pro-lifers on the sidewalk: a sidewalk also frequented by mentally challenged adults from the Independence Center next door, as well as children. It is dangerous and irresponsible. The decision to charge the victim sends a clear message to Planned Barrenhood that such assaults are acceptable.
This continues a pattern of the City of St. Louis protecting the abortionists of Planned Barrenhood.
The City Fire Department continues to violate the Sunshine Law on behalf of the abortionists. Indeed it took a lawsuit and a three year court battle for citizens to finally obtain a copy of the St. Louis City Ambulance reports concerning patients transported from the abortion mill- information that should have been readily available under the Sunshine Law. Why did the city break the Sunshine law? And continue to do so?
The released report showed there were almost twice as many patients transported to the hospital as originally thought:
Is that the reason the city stonewalled? If not, why do they continue to protect the abortionists?
And why, in spite of losing the lawsuit does the city continue to stonewall citizens by refusing to release the requested records of three subsequent ambulance transports from Planned Barrenhood not included in that lawsuit: known ambulance transports that occurred in Dec. 2015, Jan. 2016 and May 2016? Indeed how many other patients may have left Planned Barrenhood in ambulances?
The Sunshine Law clearly requires the city to release the requested information to citizens who request it.
Why is the city of St. Louis serving as private security for an abortion mill?
Among the unreported incidents is one that occurred recently,
when another of the abortionists’ security guards came out to the public sidewalk and assaulted a young sidewalk counselor, grabbing the flowers she had in her hands and leaving her in tears.
Most of the threats and assaults at Planned Barrenhood
as pro-lifers know calling the police might well get them arrested.
Citizens should not have to hesitate to call the police when threatened and/or the victim of a crime. Or incur huge legal bills to obtain information the city is required by law to provide. What else might the city be hiding for the abortionists?
· Defenders of the Unborn demands the city of St. Louis obey the (Sunshine) Law and release the requested information.
· We also demand that the city do its job to protect the citizens of our community by charging and arresting Planned Barrenhood’s security guard before he injures or kills someone.
· What Defenders seeks is that the city do its job and stop being private security for Planned Barrenhood.
· And most importantly we
demand that Planned Barrenhood do the decent thing and stop its relentless assault and battery on the most helpless among us: the unborn, and by doing so stop sending moms to the hospital in ambulances.
WITNESS REPORT FROM May 11th ASSAULT AT PLANNED BARRENHOOD (
On Wednesday, May 11th at approximately 10:00 am, I was standing on
the sidewalk near the intersection of Forest Park Ave and Boyle Ave. A
white female named Mary, wearing a white and black striped shirt was
also standing on the sidewalk in the same area. I then observed a
light blue Mazda 2 hatchback pull into the driveway of the Planned
Parenthood located at 4251 forest park ave. The driver was later
observed to be a white female approximately 5'10 180 lbs. wearing a red
shirt displaying the words millennium falcon and an image of a
spacecraft. The driver stopped in the driveway and started yelling at
Mary to leave women alone. The driver then pulled into the parking lot
at 4251 Forest Park Ave. and parked her vehicle. At this time, I began
recording video of the incident from my cellular phone. Immediately
after parking the vehicle, the driver walked briskly to Mary and began
arguing with Mary and then began yelling obscenities at Mary for about
1 minute. the driver than used both hands to push Mary backwards. The
driver than walked back to her vehicle and drove off the planned
parenthood lot yelling at Mary again on the way off. I stopped
recording since the driver had left. Approximately a half hour later
around 10:30 am, the above mentioned vehicle and driver again entered
the parking lot of the Planned Parenthood and parked. I then began
video recording again. The driver immediately exited the vehicle and
walked to the sidewalk where she positioned herself directly between 2
people who were standing 2-3 feet apart and talking. The driver then
began talking to one of these females. The driver then told Mary she
would be there all day. The driver than told Mary "as long as you
continue to harass these people, I'm going to keep harassing you." The
driver then began talking to me asking me about why i was out there.
The driver than took a drink from a cup she was holding, leaned back,
and spit the liquid onto Mary. The driver then took the lid off the
cup and threw the entire contents of the cup onto Mary. The driver
immediately went back to her vehicle and drove off. I then stopped
