Video of a female activist losing it on a pro-life demonstrator has surfaced, according to Campus Reform.
What are the details?
The video features a woman outside of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill approaching a young male pro-life intern who was holding up pro-life signs.
The outlet reported that pro-life group Created Equal said that the female activist attacked the unidentified young man after she became angry about the signs.
The young man was reportedly discussing abortion with students on the campus when the woman attacked.
She can be seen approaching a group of people, demanding if the group was responsible for the pro-life signs. When they answer in the affirmative, she goes wild and begins screaming, using profanities, and physically attacking the male.
During her outburst, the woman — visibly irate — yells that the young man is a “terrible f***ing person,” the signs are not OK, and that “this is triggering.”
The young man in the video, later identified as Austin Beigel, addressed the incident on his Facebook page Tuesday.
In the post, Beigel wrote, “I was recently assaulted on campus at UNC while peacefully talking to students about abortion. Violence from abortion supporters is becoming more common. Look at what Mark Harrington, the president of Created Equal, had to say about the incident.”
“‘Pro-abortion activists are losing the argument, and instead of seeking debate they are escalating the violence on peaceful preborn defenders on college campuses. We will never cave to acts of violence or intimidation. We will return hate with love for mothers and their babies,'” he added.
Beigel continued, “I hope you pray for the heart of the young woman who attacked me, because ‘There but by the grace of God go I. Please consider supporting me and my wife so that I can continue bringing the truth in love to the many lost people in our country. Your donations make it possible for lives to be saved and changed by God through my ministry.”
What did the group say?
In a news release provided to The Daily Caller News Foundation, the group said, “Violence from abortion supporters is becoming more common.
“Footage of the outburst begins with a woman asking our team, ‘Did you put these [signs] up?'” the release explained. “When [the young man responds] affirmatively, she proceeds to repeatedly punch and kick a member of our staff.”
The Daily Caller reported that the female activist’s Facebook page indicates that she is a “feminist,” a “mental health advocate,” and an “activist.”
Harrington, the Created Equal president, told Campus Reform that the police charged the woman with non-aggravated assault.
