An abortionist apparently pulled a gun and aimed it at a pro-life advocate protesting abortion outside his Phoenix, Arizona abortion center.
Ronald Yunis reportedly pulled out his firearm and pointed the deadly weapon at Elvis Kesto, a local pro-life advocate who has been helping save babies outside the abortion facility for some time.
Apologia Church organize the pro-life demonstration last week, October 10, at the Acacia Women’s Center and posted video of what happened. The incident reportedly occurred around 11:00 a.m. as Yunis left the abortion facility.
Kesto walked over to hand information to Yunis, who was in his vehicle, and Yunis, from inside his Tesla, pulled out the firearm.
According to the pro-life advocates present, the Phoenix Police Department did not respond to the witnesses and to the video a week after the police report was filed. They are now asking pro-life people to contact the Phoenix police department to secure a response.
“They were called again. They still won’t. You are now a witness to the crime. Please, join us in contacting the #PhoenixPolice and demanding the arrest of Ronald Yunis. This is a serious injustice that needs to be addressed. You can help us,” they said.

At around 10 a.m. Thursday, police officers entered the Acacia Women’s Center, where they briefly questioned Yunis, though they ultimately opted not to make an arrest. The issue at the time, according to footage of Officer Bobby Madeira speaking with Kesto, was there was no “independent witness” to corroborate whether Yunis was, in fact, brandishing a gun.
Jeff Durbin, pastor of Apologia, argued in the video published online that, had a pro-life demonstrator pointed a weapon toward an abortion provider, it would only be “maybe a couple of hours before action was taken to put one of us in handcuffs, rightly so.”
While Apologia has expressed concern over what they have deemed as inaction by law enforcement officials, Detective Luis Samudio said in an email to Faithwire on Friday that the pro-life group’s framing of the issue is “not accurate.
“This incident is currently being investigated,” he said. “Phoenix Police did initiate an investigation, detectives are currently investigating the incident. Because an arrest was not made on the day of the incident, it doesn’t mean an investigation was not being conducted.”
On Friday afternoon, Sgt. Sean Burton informed Apologia a detective had been assigned to look into the claim against Yunis.
