Pro-life Leader Beaten by
Church Security Team and Arrested
Church security team beats man handing out pro-life
literature. Incident video clears the man and shows church security
at fault. I personally don't care for the pro-life activist
abortion pictures outside my church, however; it is their right.
Just shows what an untrained security team can do. I am sure legal
action will be forthcoming against both the church and the
individual security team members.

Yesterday, Life Legal Senior Counsel Allison Aranda was in court on
behalf of Jeff White, founder of Survivors of the Abortion
Holocaust, a nationwide faith-based organization that equips young
people to advocate for human life in the womb.
White was distributing leaflets for a pro-life
congressional candidate in a church parking lot when he was
surrounded by the church's security team. At least four
large men harassed White and beat him to the ground, resulting in
extensive injuries to his head. Only then did they call the
police—to press charges against White!
Officers arrested White and charged him with battery,
based solely on the statements of the security team.
Life Legal obtained a video of the incident, which shows
that Jeff White was cornered by the security guards, who ignored
his plea to immediately call the police. Instead, they assaulted
him and then alleged that he was the aggressor.
The incident occurred in November of last year. For
months, Life Legal attorney Aranda has argued that this was a false
arrest and that the security team initiated the confrontation. At
yesterday's hearing, all charges against Jeff were
"We are appalled that a
prolife activist would be attacked in this way simply because he
was handing out literature," said Life Legal Defense
Foundation Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. "It took
several months, but we are pleased that the court finally delivered
justice for Jeff White."
