An African-American man who says he is a Christian minister stands accused of assaulting and threatening to kill a group of pro-life advocates who were praying at a local abortion facility in Raleigh, North Carolina.
“A man who drove his wife to A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina has attacked a group, which refers to themselves as abolitionists against abortion, after he perceived they were accusing his wife of having an abortion,” a pro-life blog reports on the videos released of the incident. “In the first video of the man, who drove his wife to the abortion clinic, he initially speaks with the abolitionists calmly, explaining that he knows what the clinic does, but that his wife was not there for an abortion.”
A fairly heated exchange eventually ensues:
“I’m a minister just like you,” he tells the group as he demands a scripture that would justify their position.
The protesters explain that he is patronizing an abortion clinic.
They then pull up scriptures on their phone when he responds, “I will punch you in your damn face if you’re calling me ignorant.”
It goes downhill from there as the man becomes more and more agitated. As the blog reports:
The anti-abortion group did not back down and told the man that they were at the abortion clinic to “stand up for your African American baby you are here to murder today.”
The abortion bound man replied, “Race got nothing to do with it man.”
The man then moves quickly back towards the protesters as they explain that they do not want black babies to die.
“Man, fu** the Black babies,” he says as he makes a fist and moves into a demonstrator, who reminds the man that he was the one who first brought up race.
Members of the abolitionist group kept on questioning the angry man – even as he walked away a second time, “What kind of church do you minister at sir,” they asked.
The expletives and anger just spewed out of the man’s mouth.
“You should be ashamed of yourself sir,” one of the protesters says in the video.
