Another elderly pro-life person is the victim of violence at the hands of an abortion activist. This time an abortion supporter in the state of Kentucky threw an elderly pro-life woman to the ground. The action broke her leg and the woman hit her head on the concrete and left a small pool of blood on the ground as a result.
According to a Facebook post about the incident, Donna Durning has been a pro-life sidewalk counselor for 23 years and, on April 13, she was assaulted outside the EMW Women’s Surgical Center abortion facility in Kentucky. The report indicates a young woman exited the abortion facility and, as Durning attempted to give her literature with information about abortion alternatives, the woman reportedly grabbed her by both shoulders and threw her to the ground.
As the Facebook post indicates, blood could still be seen on the sidewalk the following day indicating word earning hit her head on the concrete. Durning also suffered from a broken femur bone and she has undergone surgery to repair the bone at a local hospital. Fortunately she is expected to make a full recovery.
“Police officers were across the street at the time and came over as soon as they saw the attack. They took the abortion facility’s surveillance tapes. Witnesses wrote down the license plate number of the car Durning’s attacker left in,” the LiveAction post notes.

Meanwhile, San Francisco police are still looking for the person who attacked an elderly pro-life man last month outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility.
A video of the assault went viral earlier this week after LifeNews.com shared it. It shows Ron, the 85-year-old leader of 40 Days for Life San Francisco, being knocked to the ground and kicked repeatedly by an unknown man in black.
Ron told NBC Bay Area that the same man came three times that week to harass them or try to steal their things. On March 21, the day of the incident, Ron said he tried to stop the man from stealing their 40 Days for Life banner. That is when the video began.
“I tried to keep him from taking it and that was it,” Ron told the news station. “Then he knocked me down and kicked me.”
Ron, who has bruises from the attack but is back praying outside Planned Parenthood, said their pro-life group has never experienced such violence.
“We were just here praying as we always do during the day,” he said. “The violence is pretty rare. It does happen but this is the worst.”
