Australian March for Babies turns violent: U.S. pro-life activists, MPs assaulted by pro-abort mob

MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 12 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – American pro-life activist Bryan Kemper says he is bruised and sore, but recovering, after a mob of pro-abortion counter-protesters attacked him and his team of pro-life activists during the March for the Babies in Melbourne, Australia.

Kemper, the founder of Prolife Stand True Ministries, a ministry of Priests for Life, told LifeSiteNews.com today that he was thrown to the ground and repeatedly kicked. Several other members of his team were also roughed up.

Pro-life Victoria Member of Parliament Bernie Finn also told the press that he was “belted in the head” and pelted with eggs, and that fellow pro-life MP Andrew Elsbury was thrown to the ground and stomped on.

“What we saw today was literally a public mugging on the streets of Melbourne and Victoria Police let it happen,” Finn fumed. “We had people being assaulted, being kicked, being stomped on and they sat back and watched.”

Trouble began brewing even before the march began, said Kemper. When the pro-life activists tried to begin the march, they were blocked by the mob of about 200 pro-abortion protesters.

“So we all sat in protest and started praying,” he said. “Then the police let them start attacking us.”

    Pro-aborts do not have the facts on their side, so they cannot defend their stand. In that case they resort to name-calling and violence. We need to continue to stand up for what we know is right.
