Columbus, OH – April 20, 2015 – "Please do not touch my property," Created Equal Justice Rider Lauren Handy said to police as she attempted to lawfully display abortion victim photos on the public sidewalk in front of Washington, DC's Planned Parenthood killing center. The video clip shows police removing her signs and threatening her with arrest for sidewalk counseling. Watch the video below:
"Lauren faces hostility rescuing children every day," Mark Harrington of Created Equal said. "She has been harassed. Her property has been confiscated. She has been cursed at. She has been water-hosed. So far, our efforts to protect her rights have failed. The DC police continue this campaign of intimidation. If she were just praying they would leave her alone. She gets harassed because she brings the very victims of abortion to the killing place in order to spare lives. Despite police attempts to remove her and the abortion victim photos there were three babies saved the other day!"
We are currently working with our attorneys at Life Legal Defense to get this situation resolved.
This type of harassment of sidewalk counselors will not stand!
Lauren needs a body camera to protect against police harassment. She needs a Gopro and more victim signs!
