85-Year-Old Man Viciously Assaulted Outside San Francisco Planned Parenthood

Mary Margaret Olohan on March 27, 2019

An 85-year-old man was brutally assaulted on two separate occasions outside a San Francisco Planned Parenthood last week by an unnamed assailant.

The victim, who Life News referred to as Ron, is a 40 Days for Life leader who frequently prayed outside abortion clinics and has lead the 40 Days for Life group in San Francisco for “years.” Life News referred to him as “one of the most loving and dedicated long-time 40 Days for Life leaders.”

On Tuesday, March 19, the assailant approached Ron and threw the pro-life sign, pamphlets, and table into the street. The assailant also knocked Ron and another man to the ground.

Again on Thursday, March 21, the assailant returned and tried to ride away with Ron’s pro-life banner.

When Ron chased after him to retrieve it, the assailant viciously and repeatedly kicked Ron, saying, “Old man, stay on the ground. Stay on the ground old man, unless you want to get hurt.”

Law enforcement took statements from the victims, but the assailant has not yet been identified.

Life News reports that “Planned Parenthood allegedly has video surveillance of the area including the attacks, but it has been initially reported that they are unwilling to release the video or assist in the pending investigation.”

“40 Days for Life will always support and defend its vigilant and peaceful prayer volunteers,” Matt Britton, the General Counsel for 40 Days for Life, said in a statement. “As a former elected prosecutor, I have reviewed thousands of cases of violence, and anyone who would make such a brutal, vicious assault and robbery of an elderly, peaceful man should end up in the penitentiary where he can do no more harm.”

Ron will be represented by Life Legal.

“The vicious attack against our elderly client is intolerable,” said Allison Aranda, Life Legal Senior Counsel and former Prosecutor of the Year. “We will pursue all legal avenues to see that justice is served and that the freedom to speak freely on the public sidewalk without threat of physical violence is protected no matter the message. As a former prosecutor, I trust that the San Francisco District Attorney’s office will pursue all legal charges against the perpetrator and bring him to justice.”

Planned Parenthood did not respond to a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation to comment on this incident.

  • I agree, but wait until it's a full house that's called an eye for an eye; since they have zero regard for life then their own is not worth anything, confirmed by their own actions.

  • Why shouldn't this creep do whatever the hell he feels like doing - didn't Smollet get a pass?!?!?!?!
    and why shouldn't he just feel like punching up a senior, these creeps were never taught to behave as humans.. they were taught human life has no meaning.
    Whatever we do we MUST all make sure EVERY decent country loving American votes next election!!!!
    We need Donald Trump leading this country!

  • If this happened outside a conservative facility and the facility refused to turn over surveillance footage they would be charged with OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. But in the Liberal Haven of the Gay Bay nothing will happen. San Francisco in nothing but a Cesspool of Evil.
