Last month, a pro-life activist was physically attacked by a feminist on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
In a video posted by Created Equal, one of the male team members of the pro-life group is approached by a female student. “Did you put these [signs] up?” the feminist asks the pro-lifer. When he responds in the affirmative, the woman attacks him, punching him repeatedly in the face and kicking him.
The feminist is then approach by law enforcement and notified that she will be charged with assault.
According to a statement from the pro-life group, the incident occurred on April 2, when team members were posting “signs depicting the gruesome reality of abortion” meant to “engage students in conversation about this human injustice.”
Created Equal confirmed to The Daily Wire on Wednesday morning that the feminist has been identified as a social justice activist known as Jillian Alexandra Ward and has been charged with a simple assault, which is a misdemeanor. Ward’s court date is set for June 4.
Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal, said abortion activists are resorting to violence because they are losing the argument.
“Pro-abortion activists are losing the argument, and instead of seeking debate they are escalating the violence on peaceful preborn defenders on college campuses,” read a statement from Harrington.
“We will never cave to acts of violence or intimidation. We will return hate with love for mothers and their babies,” he added.
“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,” said Created Equal.
There have been a spate of incidents in the past few months wherein pro-lifers have been physically attacked or verbally harassed by abortion advocates. Over the weekend, for example, a Democratic state representative from Pennsylvania, Brian Sims, videotaped himself berating an elderly pro-life sidewalk counselor outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. In another video posted by the Democrat, Sims harasses three teenage girls and offers his viewers $100 for their identities so that they can be doxxed.
Last month, an elderly pro-life woman in Kentucky, sidewalk counselor Donna Durning, was thrown to the ground outside an abortion clinic, suffering a broken leg and head injuries. Durning was apparently trying to pass out pro-life literature when she was attacked.
And at the end of March, an elderly man at a peaceful pro-life prayer vigil outside a San Francisco-based Planned Parenthood abortion clinic was physically assaulted by an abortion advocate. The 85-year-old had his pro-life banner stolen by an unidentified male abortion advocate; when he attempted to retrieve his property, he was severely beaten and threatened.
