Elderly Pro-Lifers Beaten While Praying - NO Arrests Made!


Last week, an elderly pro-lifer was brutally attacked outside a Planned Parenthood in Baltimore. A witness claimed that a second elderly pro-lifer was also attacked and was knocked out cold.

What are the details?

The above twitter showing a Instagram post from Jay Walton, president of Baltimore County Right to Life, urges people to “please pray for my dear friend, Mark Crosby. He was viciously attacked yesterday, May 26, 2023, while he was praying in front of Planned Parenthood in Baltimore City. He and another pro-lifer were attacked from behind, and the thug ran away. Mark is currently in the hospital being treated for the serious injuries he sustained. Please pray that Mark makes a full recovery, and that the thug that did this to him is found and dealt with swiftly.”

According to local pro-lifer John Roswell, Crosby and fellow pro-lifer Dick Schafer were the victims of an unjustified assault outside a Planned Parenthood on North Howard Street.

Roswell told the outlet that Crosby’s “plate bone in his upper right cheek is completely fractured” and that he “is bleeding from some unidentified area behind his eye, and the bone eye orbit is completely shattered and will have to be replaced with metal.”

Roswell added to LifeSiteNews that the assailant had initially asked one of the Planned Parenthood escorts to hold his drink before lunging at Schafer “who believes his back was turned at that time to the assailant.”

“Mark, who was in the street, tried to go to Dick’s aid and was hit in the face, knocking him on the ground, and the man then kicked him in the head,” Roswell added to the outlet.

Police told WJZ-TV that video of attack “shows the suspect strike [the victim] in the face with a closed fist as [the victim] is on his back on the ground. The suspect is then observed standing up and with extreme force, kicks [the victim] directly in the face.”

According to WBAL-TV, the 73-year-old and 80-year-old victims were identified by witnesses before police arrived at the site at 10:30 a.m. According to police, the 73-year-old was rushed to Shock Trauma with major injuries to his eye and face.

According to WBAL, who cited a witness and one of the victims, a guy said to be in his late 20s “went on a rampage” after a dispute over abortion rights.

“He didn’t like their opinion or what was being said. The gentleman just took it into his own hands,” a witness who asked to remain anonymous told the station

The witness added to WBAL that the attacker knocked Schaefer out cold: “He speared the one gentleman over that flowerpot into the window and knocked him out. He was out cold for several minutes.”

Schaefer said to WBAL that he had hurt his hand, shoulder, head, and back.

“I leaned down. I was hit by a truck. I don’t know what happened, but instantly I was looking up to the sky,” Schaefer added to the station.

Schaefer informed WBAL that Crosby prevented him from being killed, and the witness corroborated Schaefer’s account, saying that the attacker repeatedly hit Crosby in the face and stomped on him before fleeing the scene. While waiting for paramedics to arrive, Crosby was treated by personnel at a nearby business, the station reported.

“I went in there, and he was on a gurney. His face was all swollen and bloody, blood all over his clothes,” Schaefer told WBAL of Crosby.

WBAL reported that the suspect was a white man in his twenties, standing about 6 feet tall with brown hair and a full beard and clad in a gray T-shirt, blue pants, and brown shoes. The station reported that he was last spotted heading west on Mulberry Street and urged anyone with information to contact authorities.
