4 Peaceful Protesters Arrested for Protesting Greensboro Abortion Clinic

Published

on

On March 28, 2020, police arrested four men who were protesting outside of an abortion clinic in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Charlotte-based anti-abortion group Love Life posted a Facebook Live video where a man said, “Hey guys, we’re in Greensboro right now. We were in Charlotte earlier this morning. And we got a report that in Greensboro, the police have pushed against people being out here to pray, even though we’re doing social distancing. So, we just came up here because they basically they ran off the prayer walkers. They ran off the sidewalk counselors. And the abortion center remains open.”

After three minutes, the video depicts an encounter with two Greensboro police officers outside of A Woman’s Choice, the abortion clinic in question, on Randleman Road.

“I’m gonna tell you now: You need to return to your vehicles,” Lieutenant DW Knott said. “You’ve got a choice now to make. You can choose to comply with what I’m telling you, or you’re going to be charged…. Right now, I am giving you a command to leave this location.”

After Knott asked him if he’s going to comply with his order, another protester responded that he is going to stay where he is “pursuant” to the Guilford County shelter order.

“Sir, let me have your ID, please,” Knott instructed, “and I want you to sit on the curb.”

Another protester commented, “I don’t mean any disrespect.”

A second officer remarked, “Well, y’all are disrespecting us by doing this.”

Sitting on the curb, one of the protesters said, “You want to do this. I don’t want to do this. You desire this. You are the one pushing this. I’m saying, ‘Let’s talk about it.’ I’m saying, ‘At least talk to your city council about it, and your lawyer.’ You don’t want to do that.”

One of the men who ended up being arrested is Justin Reeder, the founder of Love Life USA, according a press release NC Values Coalition, a Christian right organization based in Charlotte, sent out. Reeder has been charged with violating the shelter order and resisting, delaying and obstructing a police officer.

Other individuals arrested and charged with violating the shelter order were Jason Oesterreich, Carl Ubinas, and Isaiah Burner, were also charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing a law enforcement officer.

The NC Values Coalition sharply criticized the arrests:

“The North Carolina Values condemns the actions of Greensboro police for arresting Christians who peacefully and legally pray and exercise their religious rights on sidewalk,” said Jim Quick, the state director of grassroots and media. “Not even in communist China would police arrest three men for walking and praying on the street. Even during a fight against a virus, Americans have constitutional rights to pray and exercise religious freedoms.”

Rush Limbaugh Announces That His Lung Cancer is Terminal

Published

on

Conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh announced to his listeners Monday that his lung cancer is terminal.

Recent scans showed that the cancer has progressed despite much treatment and positive results. “It’s not dramatic, but it is in the wrong direction,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh announced his cancer diagnosis back in February. President Donald Trump honored the pioneering conservative talk show host with the Medal of Freedom at the State of the Union address shortly thereafter.

Here’s a transcript of what Rush said on his show Monday. Excerpt below:

From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, okay, that’s it. Life’s over. You just don’t know when. But when you get that diagnosis, I mean, that’s… So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.

And at some point you can decide, you know, this medication may be working, but I hate the way I feel every day. I’m not there yet. But it is part and parcel of this. It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.

[…]

Stage 1 is just a bunch of little nodules running around, and even if you got a scan that showed a bunch of nodules, they’d say, “Gotta keep a sharp eye on them. There’s some nodules here, some nodules there.” But it really doesn’t present as what it is (this type of cancer) until it’s stage 4 — and stage 4 is, as they say, terminal. So we have some recent progression. It’s not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction.

So we have to tweak the treatment plan, which we did, and the chemotherapy drugs in hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible. The idea now is to keep it where it is or maybe have it reduce again. We’ve shown that that is possible. If it happened once, it can happen again. So that’s the objective of the current treatment plan.

We here at Big League Politics will continue to keep Rush and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
