Pro-Life 15-Year-Old Punched in Face

Students for Life of America has released a disgusting new video showing a 15-year-old pro-life student who was punched in the face by an unidentified woman after standing outside a Planned Parenthood in an effort to prevent abortions. 

Purity Thomas is a member of Students for Life of America, in Roanoke, Virginia. On Saturday, she was praying and speaking to women in hopes of changing their hearts and saving their children from abortion near a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Suddenly, a bystander walked up threateningly to Purity. The woman claimed she would "beat her up" and "f**k her up", according to Students for Life of America. The incident was caught on tape. 

“It’s horrific that a minor expressing love for pregnant women was targeted for violence,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, in the press release. “But this is not an isolated incident. Across the country we are witnessing a rise in the number of incidents of vandalism and violence against peaceful pro-life speech.”

“Even the American Bar Association is demonizing pro-life speech, trying to block pro-life attorneys from taking a seat on the bench,” said Hawkins. “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.”

Students for Life of America is a non-profit whose mission is "to transform culture by helping young people make abortion unthinkable and obsolete on their campus, in their community, and in our nation." The video below highlights some of their success stories in helping young women and children.
