MONTREAL, Thu Mar 17, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Earlier this week, one of the organizers of Montreal’s 40 Days for Life campaign in front of the Morgentaler abortion clinic was physically attacked by a young woman who the pro-lifer described as being “obviously upset at our presence.”Yes, the pro-aborts are obviously upset with the 40 Days for Life vigil. They don't like being reminded, that abortion is not just "between the woman and her doctor", that there's the baby's life at stake. But we're not going give in just because the pro-aborts are upset:
“A young lady in her late teens accompanied by a neatly bearded young twenty-something was obviously upset at our presence. She was the more articulate of the two, demanding that we close down our site,” he related.
As the young woman attempted to walk away with the rolled up banner, Jenkins said he tried to prevent her from taking it, at which point she punched him with such force that he ended up on the ground.
“I grabbed one end without letting go,” he said. “She tried to wrestle it from me, threatened to punch me, and did so. Somehow I ended up with the banner beneath me on the ground. At this point she and the young man left.”
If anyone thinks that physical violence will discourage us, they are sorely mistaken. In fact, I suggest to all pro-lifers that if anyone tries to discourage you from any kind of pro-life activism, just promise the person making the threat that you will only do more activism if they persist in their attempts to dissuade you.Exactly.
We will not be silenced.
