A guard working for the last abortion clinic in Mississippi stands accused of spraying a half dozen pro-life advocates standing outside the facility praying with mace.

Ashley Sigrest contact LifeNews with information about the incident, and she said the sidewalk counselors who were sprayed by mace were standing outside the abortion facility “as always, singing, praying, talking to those going in…standing in the public sidewalk where they are allowed.”

“Diane Derzis, clinic owner is in town and had the guard put the sprinkler out to get them wet, which hasn’t happened before,” Sigrest added. “In the video you can see one man trying to talk to guard about why he put the sprinkler out there and the guard crosses the line from private to public property and first maces the man, Cal Zastrow, while he sings, then others.”

“A total of six people were sprayed, all while standing where it is legal, one was a 15 year old boy who along with two others went to hospital for further help washing out their eyes,” she said.
