A shocking video has emerged of a teenage pro-life campaigner being punched in the face by a woman outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Roanoke, Virginia. 15-year-old pro-life activist Purity Thomas was smashed in the face after a short verbal exchange in which Thomas told the woman she would be praying for her.
The video was released by Students for Life Of America, who explained that an unidentified woman approached the pro-life activists at around 8:30 a.m. and threatened to “f*** them up.” She then allegedly stole a campaign sign and proceeded to punch Thomas in the face. As the young teen fell to the ground, the assailant turned back and said “stay down.”
“It’s horrific that a minor expressing love for pregnant women was targeted for violence,” said SFLA President Kristan Hawkins in a press release, before adding that this was “not an isolated incident.”
She concluded: “We pray that the assailant from today’s attack is brought to justice swiftly. But we also pray for the protection of those who volunteer their time to speak for the innocent, preborn infants and their mothers.”
