July 23, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life group Created Equal has released a video montage, including previously unreleased footage chronicling numerous abortion supporters physically attacking peaceful pro-lifers, to demonstrate that pro-abortion violence is on the rise.
The roughly eight-minute video is replete with endless incidents of profanity, assault, vandalism, property destruction, attempted theft, and intense vitriol from pro-abortion individuals toward pro-life demonstrators.

The footage covers incidents spanning several years, but much of it has been captured in the last several months and the rise in violence by abortion supporters calls for a response, Created Equal national director Mark Harrington told LifeSiteNews.
“Our staff members, interns and volunteers are under attack on a regular basis,” Harrington said. “We need to push back against the rhetoric coming from pro-abortion elected officials comparing conservatives, Christians, and pro-life advocates as Nazis and violent.”
“Abortion supporters are the violent ones, not pro-lifers,” he said. “They kill babies and attack the defenders of the babies.”
Created Equal has documented incidents of violence against young members of its team for years.
In a press statement on the release of the video footage, the group shared more comprehensive video of some examples.
They include a pro-abortion feminist assaulting a pro-lifer at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in May, a liberal student activist stealing and vandalizing Created Equal signs at Indiana University in October 2018, a masked thug attacking the group’s equipment at Ohio University in September 2016, and a man assaulting a young pro-life activist at a high school in Columbus, Ohio, in May 2016.
LifeSiteNews reported on the Chapel Hill assault, as well as an abortion supporter there trying to steal Created Equal’s signs, and a pro-abortion woman assaulting a teenage Created Equal team member in Columbus in 2014.
LifeSite’s past coverage included an abortion volunteer’s 2017 attack in Columbus against a Catholic priest demonstrating for life alongside Created Equal team members after her attempted theft of their pro-life signs.
LifeSite also reported in November 2017 on the increase in hostility and vandalism toward pro-life groups on campus.
