Pro-lifer attacked at Santa Ana abortion clinic


A California abortionist could face prosecution over an incident at an abortion clinic in Santa Ana.


A pro-life prayer warrior was at the clinic taking pictures. According to Cheryl Sullinger of Operation Rescue, the man was attacked at the end of the day.


"As he was leaving the clinic the abortionist got angry and attacked him, punched him, choked him," Sullinger explains. "He was knocked to the ground. He received lacerations and other injuries."


While on the ground, the unidentified pro-lifer yelled for help. "The police were summoned, and the abortionist was arrested and charged with assault and battery," Sullinger adds.


There were several witnesses to the incident. The owner of the clinic was arrested recently and faces 28 charges, including performing abortions without a license.
