A Delaware man has been arrested after allegedly pulling a gun on pro-life protestors threatening them outside a Planned Parenthood clinic last week.
According to a press release issued on Saturday, officers from the Dover Police Department responded Friday morning to calls from a group of pro-life activists outside the Planned Parenthood Dover Health Center.
Police and witnesses allege that 31-year-old Jerome Aniska “engaged with the pro-life demonstrators that were on the public sidewalk and an argument ensued.”
“During this argument, Aniska pulled out a black handgun and made a threatening statement to the group,” the press release said.
Witnesses reported that Aniska went to the trunk of his vehicle before the police arrived.
Upon his arrest, officers found an empty holster in the center console of Aniska’s car and a black 9mm handgun in the trunk.
Aniska has been charged with two counts of aggravated menacing, two counts of terroristic threatening, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was later released on a $26,000 unsecured bond.
Aniska is far from the first to threaten defenders of the unborn with violence and even death.
Late last year, we reported that a pro-life ministry was threatened with a firearm by an abortionist as he drove into the clinic parking lot.
Bodycam footage released by Apologia Studios, the media ministry of Phoenix-based Apologia Church, shows the abortionist in question, Dr. Ronald Yunis, pointing a handgun at protestor Elvis Kesto from inside his vehicle on his way out of the Acacia Women’s Center.
Unlike Aniska, however, Dr. Yunis was treated with shocking leniency by the Phoenix Police Department, who refused to arrest him on the spot.
“I have to go off the evidence that I have, and right now there’s not enough evidence to make an arrest,” an officer told Kesto after questioning Dr. Yunis inside the clinic and explaining to him that they would not arrest Dr. Yunis that day in spite of the fact that two witnesses saw him brandish his weapon and it was recorded on video.
When Kesto asked the officer what more evidence he could possibly need, the response was, “I can’t conclusively say that’s a gun.”
At the time, officers refused to even search Dr. Yunis’ car.
Thankfully, no one was harmed in either incident. We cannot, however, say the same about the countless children being murdered within the walls of these clinics.
That is why we will never stop fighting for them.
