Catholic priest, pro-lifers arrested for witnessing inside U.S. abortion centers

Members of the Red Rose Rescue team: (L to R) Julia Haag, Father Stephen Imbarrato, Joan McKee. Dec. 2, 2017.
Eleven pro-lifers were arrested Saturday, Dec. 2 in the second Red Rose Rescue. The pro-life defense of the unborn took place in three different clinics: Stephen Brigham’s Capital Women's Services 6323 Georgia Ave NW Suite 210, Washington, DC, the Alexandria Women’s Health Clinic 101 S Whiting St, Alexandria, VA, and the Women’s Center Clinic 6765 Orchard Lake Rd, West Bloomfield Township, MI. owned by abortionist Jacob Kalo.

Father Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life joined two others, Julia Haag and Joan McKee and entered the D.C. clinic at 2:15 in the afternoon. They were confronted by a totally-packed waiting room—so packed indeed that other women scheduled for abortions were forced to wait in the outside hallway in the building that houses the center. They were able to distribute red roses to all those inside the clinic, offering words of encouragement not to abort their babies. Clinic staff however rounded up all the women and “sequestered” them behind the reception area. The pro-lifers then simply went out into the hallway and continued to talk to the women waiting there.
