After dumping a coffee on a pro-life protester outside a brand-new abortion facility in Illinois, a pro-abortion woman has been charged with violence.
The event happened in front of Rockford’s brand-new RFD Family Planning abortion facility, which opened on Tuesday.
“I’d rather be doing medical stuff, than political stuff, it has been an interesting journey,” said Dr. Dennis Christensen, the clinic’s owner. “I’m glad that we are able to open the doors, I’m disappointed it took so long to do it.”
According to a report from Life Dynamics, “Christensen began killing unborn babies in 1973 — the year Roe v. Wade was decided.”
According to Life Dynamics, Christensen told the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal in 2014 that he had already carried out between 85,000 and 95,000 abortions.
“So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”
In an interview with the Wisconsin State Journal from 2001, Christensen said, “When I meet my creator, I think she’s going to say, “Way to go!”
Protesters brawled outside Christensen’s brand-new clinic hours after it initially opened.
According to a report from the neighborhood station WIFR, Nataly Rivera, 26, of Rockford, is accused of throwing a cup of coffee at and attempting to knock the phone out of the hand of an anti-abortion activist outside the clinic.
After Rivera was arrested by the Rockford Police Department, the demonstrations are said to have come to a stop.
“It’s unfortunate that a pro-lifer was attacked,” Rockford Family Initiative President Kevin Rilott told the station. “But, we understand that when you stand up and defend life, things like this may happen.”
Rilott stated that they will continue to stand outside and implores moms to think about other options despite the violence.
“The only intention of the business is to end human life,” said Rilott. “We will have people out there on a regular basis, we’ll offer help to mothers in need.”
