If the pro-choice crowd were looking for a poster child, the woman in this clip certainly isn’t it. A video shows a crazed abortion advocate physically and verbally attacking peaceful pro-lifers in downtown Columbus, OH.
The video was shot by members of the Created Equal organization, who were staging a low key demonstration alongside two signs showing an aborted fetus.
The video begins with the woman erroneously claiming that a baby at 12 weeks is just “a clump of motherfucking cells – no hands are showing at that time,” when in reality the baby has developed hands, arms, legs, ears, and eyelids at this point.
“You’re some white privileged, racist, motherfucking male that doesn’t stand for women’s rights – fucking dipshit,” barks the woman before kicking in one of the group’s signs and proceeding to physically assault Seth Drayer, who was filming the incident.
The woman, who appears to be a Burger King employee, kicks over another sign as Drayer calls the police.
“You are fucking white male privilege assholes,” screams the woman, before assaulting Drayer again. “What you are is a racist motherfucker as well,” she yells, incensed that the group would dare exercise its first amendment rights to advocate a position with which she disagrees.
“Go right the fuck on ahead you fucking sexist, misogynist motherfuckers,” states the woman. “Take your male privilege somewhere else – no uterus, no right to talk about it – understand me motherfucker.”
The police subsequently arrive and remove the woman from a bus. The group has filed charges against the woman.
The woman’s insistence that the pro-lifers were “racist assholes” is somewhat inconsistent with the fact that almost half of the abortions that are carried out in the United States each year result in the termination of black babies.
“Violent attacks on pro-lifers are becoming more common,” Created Equal’s Executive Director Mark Harrington told Christian Newswire. “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.”
