Pro-lifers in Oklahoma record assault, claim no help coming from police

Pro-life counselors at an abortion clinic in Norman, Oklahoma were assaulted, paving the way for criminal charges against the perpetrator. 

Toby Harmon from a group called Abolish Human Abortion was preaching in front of an abortion clinic December 17 in Norman when a couple left after an abortion. Harmon says he and a friend called out, asking if they could help. Then a young man became aggressive and approached the two pro-lifers.

Harmon tells OneNewsNow: "He shoved my friend Jeremy to the ground and at that point I said, Look, I'm recording this, you're on video so you need to leave.You're going to get in trouble."

At that point the man struck Jeremy in the face with his fist, got ahold of the camera, threw it to the ground, and stomped it into pieces. But Harmon pulled out another camera and resumed recording the incident, which shows the man stalking toward the two pro-lifers as they retreat.

Audio captured in the video suggests the assailant told pro-lifers he wished he had brought a gun.

Police were called and took notes, but the pro-lifers claim authorities are not helping. Harmon says he emailed a district attorney the links to the assault but never heard back.

"This guy actually came back the next week and threatened us, told us we had 10 minutes to leave or else he would break another one of our cameras," Harmon says.

Police did nothing again, he claims, except to suggest mediation. They wouldn't allow the videos as evidence.

Harmon, a January 15 guest on American Family Radio's Focal Point with Bryan Fischer, indicated that Norman police are getting calls demanding justice. (See video segment below from American Family Radio)
