As businesses deemed 'non-essential' are being closed, abortion clinics in many areas are being allowed to stay open. What is essential about murdering an unborn baby? Your guess is as good as mine.
Now, under the cover of COVID-19, police are arresting pro-life activists for gathering outside of an abortion center to pray. Seven were arrested in North Carolina on Monday in violation of the jurisdictions stay-at-home order.
Jason Oesterreich, Justin Reeder, Isaiah Burner, Andre Gonzalez, Richard Whittier, Leroy Stokes Jr., and John Mcatee, were arrested outside of A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic, according to a Greensboro Police Department press release.
The group was charged with violating the Guilford County Stay at Home Order, in addition to charges of Resist Delay and Obstruct a Public Officer.
“Greensboro Police Officers made every attempt to gain voluntary compliance” before they arrested them, the release says.
Pastor Keith Pavlansky of Personhood North Carolina tells LifeSiteNews that the group practiced social distancing at the gathering, and brought with them face masks as well as hand sanitizer. The men have since been released, and are awaiting a court date in June. Pavlansky said that before then, he’s personally hoping to see a judge “put an injunction on this thing so at least they’re not arresting people on that unlawful basis. They have violated our civil rights.”
The Charlotte-based pro-life group Love Life says that before any of this happened, their attorney reviewed the details of the stay-at-home order with the police lieutenant, who in turn consulted with the city attorney.
Oesterreich, Reeder, and Burner, who are with Love Life, were previously arrested Saturday at the same location. They caught the previous incident on video, which shows the group taking care to keep their distance from one another (per “social distancing” guidelines) and attempting to read the language from the order which they argue allows for their presence among “outdoor activities.”
Although the officers claim they made “every attempt to gain voluntary compliance,” the officers in the video did no effort to address the group's understand of the order... which does state that activates like golfing and walking are considered "essential" outdoor activity.
“I hope all Christians will be praying about this and understand that it’s not a case of trying to unnecessarily rile the authorities,” Pavlansky said. “They came hunting for a fight, and the entire church needs to be aware of that and pray for a just outcome. The city of Greensboro chose to use COVID to achieve the goal of having no Christians present in front of the abortion clinic.”
