Rose Mawhorter was viciously assaulted while protesting abortion across the street from Vancouver's most notorious abortion clinic. Although the story was covered by LifeSiteNews a few days after the April 7 incident, Rose has just released a video of the attack (warning - explicit language).
Prior to the attack Rose is seen holding a "choice" sign with her would be attacker standing in the background.
As the camera is panned back to Rose it captures the attacker tackling her and forcing her to the ground.
Rose is knocked to the ground and the female assailant grabs her sign and runs. Lifesite reports:
She threw the signs into the traffic and turned back to the scene of chaos she had left behind and began cursing and swearing at the people who were coming to assist Rose. The attacker continued this screaming and yelling until she was out of earshot of the group and then bolted across the road, running as fast as she could making a clean get away.
It doesn't appear from press reports that the perpetrator was ever captured. However, Rose, who is a member of the executive of Campaign Life Coalition BC, continues her weekly vigil at the abortion mill.
In fact she said incidents like this are to be expected when one brings a message to society that it does not want to hear. She was not surprised that people who condone killing the smallest of human beings would resort to attacking defenceless, peaceful demonstrators.Check Rose's video here and read the rest of LifeSite's article.
"Violence can never be considered an option" Mawhorter stated. "Social justice movements almost inevitably face violent resistance when they successfully challenge accepted injustice. This will be no different for the pro-life movement when we begin to effectively confront our society's sin."
