The first occurred June 30 and is in follow-up to my story that pro-life activists planned to distribute flyers outing country singer JoDell Nauert as the owner of three abortion clinics at an Independence Day gig.
This was ironically a charity event for a group supporting handicapped children and adults.
Six pro-lifers paid to enter the event and were in the process of distributing tracts when organizers asked them to leave, which they did.
But one of those pro-lifers, Steve Kinn (above right) is a disabled veteran who walks with a cane due to injuries sustained to both his knees. When he didn’t exit fast enough, the property owner allegedly shoved him, making him fall to the ground and reinjure one of his reconstructed knees to the extent he had to be taken out in an ambulance.
It was of no help that a police officer threatened to arrest Kinn for trespassing both before and after he reached the hospital.
But the officer got a call and suddenly left.
Meanwhile, however, pro-lifers continued to picket outside the Nauert’s event for 90 minutes.
Here’s a great video synopsis, shot and edited by Jay Rogers of the Florida Pro-Life Network…
In a separate attack, 69-yr-old pro-lifer Everett Stadig was collecting personhood initiative signatures in front of a Denver grocery store on July 1 when he was shoved to the ground by an enraged abortion supporter and fractured his hip. Read details of the story at LifeSiteNews.com.
Supposedly a passerby got the license plate number of the perpetrator, and police took a report, but there has been no word from authorities since.
Nevertheless, Everett is still collecting personhood signatures from his bed, the dear man.
It goes without saying to pro-lifers that a movement grounded on killing babies is inherently violent.
It used to be that they could ignore us. But that is no longer possible. As the saying goes (attributed to Gandhi but disputed), which describes the phases of nonviolent activism, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
If this is true, the other side is nearing the end of the mocking phase and beginning the fighting phase. This transition has been ongoing for a few years, as evidenced by the growing intolerance to pro-life displays on college campuses, for one.

As abortion proponents apparently sense defeat at hand, they are beginning to engage in anarchy.
Get ready. As I said, this is only the beginning.
LifeNews.com Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
