An abortionist based in Phoenix, Arizona has been arrested after he was filmed on video pulling a gun and aiming it at a pro-life advocate protesting abortion outside his abortion business.
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 organized the pro-life demonstration 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.
Now, he has been arrested:
Yunis was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault.
“We are peaceful Christians out here to minister,” said Pastor Jeff Durbin.
Durbin is one of the several anti-abortion activists who regularly set up shop outside the Acacia Women’s Center in central Phoenix. He was not there when this incident happened, but works with the people who were.
“No basis under law to pull out a weapon and point it at somebody,” Durbin said.
The protesters are glad an arrest was finally made, but still believe it took too long.
“To be fair, if one of our people out here had brandished and pulled a weapon on the abortionist, I would expect the person to be arrested and I want the same for him,” Durbin said.

Before the arrest, the pro-life victims were concerned about inaction on the part of the Phoenix, Arizona police department.
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.
