On July 24, 2012, in blazing 100°F heat, Kathy Forck approached a Stericycle truck driver who was leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Columbia, Missouri, to offer him a bottle of water.
Planned Parenthood had Kathy arrested as if a criminal!
You see, Planned Parenthood hates Kathy Forck. Kathy spends hours outside the abortion mill each week, encouraging women to choose life for their babies. She has helped save hundreds of babies’ lives.
Kathy was first found guilty at a trial in the municipal court, which could have landed her a big fine and 6 months in jail!
We would not let that happen. We appealed the ruling to the Circuit Court.
At a trial held just a few weeks ago, Planned Parenthood witnesses gave completely conflicting testimonies. Then, they showed the Judge video footage from a security camera supposedly documenting Kathy’s trespass.
The Judge told Planned Parenthood that he could not see any evidence of a crime on the video. He sternly held that they simply could not prove their case.
In fact, when the Judge ruled to free Kathy of the bogus charges, he looked over to all the pro-aborts sitting in the back of the courtroom and admonished them: “Even though you may not like my ruling, I do not want to hear a sound.”
Kathy continues her pro-life work as a campaign director for 40 Days for Life, and as a member of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, offering peaceful sidewalk counseling to abortion-bound women in Missouri.
After years of sidewalk counseling and prayer vigils in Columbia, Planned Parenthood lost its license in February, 2014, and had to cease providing abortions there.

It is our honor to defend innocent, pro-life heroes like Kathy Forck.
Also, we just filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging them to allow Choose Life license plates across America. It’s a first amendment right that every American should be able to buy a Choose Life plate, but some states don’t allow it.
We’ve asked the Supreme Court to resolve this dispute!
