Another pro-life advocate was punched in the face last month in North Carolina.

The pro-life group Created Equal was doing an outreach April 2 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill when the assault occurred. The organization posted a video of the incident online this week.

The video begins with a female student approaching a young, male pro-life advocate, asking, “Did you put these [signs] up?” When he says yes, she lunges forward and punches him in the face several times, and then kicks him.

Later, the video shows local authorities explaining that the woman will be charged with assault.

“We are committed to defending babies. We are also committed to defending the right to defend babies. Thus, Created Equal is currently engaged in several open cases with prosecutors charging those who attack our property or people, including the incidents at UNC,” the pro-life group said in a statement.

Created Equal was on campus to display signs depicting the gruesome reality of abortion and to engage students in conversation about the human injustice of abortion against unborn babies.

“Pro-abortion activists are losing the argument, and instead of seeking debate they are escalating the violence on peaceful preborn defenders on college campuses. We will never cave to acts of violence or intimidation. We will return hate with love for mothers and their babies,” said Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal.

Harrington said they also have another video showing a student at UNC being arrested for committing larceny against their organization. He said they plan to release it soon.

LifeNews and other pro-life groups have witnessed an alarming uptick in these type of incidents against pro-lifers. This spring, there were at least two additional physical assaults on pro-life advocates in Kentucky and California. The Kentucky incident left a sidewalk counselor with a broken leg that required surgery and rehabilitation.

This week, a Pennsylvania state representative is facing national outrage after he posted videos of himself harassing pro-life women and teenage girls in his district because they were peacefully praying outside an abortion facility in Philadelphia.

And, according to Students for Life of America, pro-life student clubs were victims of more than 50 acts of vandalism this school year.
