A 63-year-old Catholic grandmother says she was attacked and knocked to the ground while filming outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington, Del. last week.
Rae Stabosz told TheBlaze she’s part of a regular group that prays outside the clinic. On Wednesday afternoon, when she and another woman were getting ready to leave for the day, an ambulance pulled up to the front of the building. Stabosz took out her iPhone and began to film, at which point she said a woman came out of the Planned Parenthood and demanded she stop taping.
“She came out of Planned Parenthood and she was very angry,” Stabosz said.“[She said]‘I’m going to mess you up so f–king bad.”
“She barreled into me, grabbed my phone and threw it down on the ground and started to stomp on it. I thought if she gets one clear shot at this she’s going to crush my phone and destroy it,” Staboszs said.“She picked the phone up, put it in her pocket and [went inside and] gave it to the Planned Parenthood person.”
Stabosz said she got up and went into the clinic — something anti-abortion protesters are usually prohibited from doing — and demanded her phone back from the receptionist. The receptionist handed it over, at which point Staboszs went back outside and called 911 to report the assault.
