Congresswoman Nearly Run Over While Praying at Abortion Business

Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN)
Capitol Police are now investigating a May 15 incident in which Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski (R) was nearly run over by an Antifa activist while participating in a prayer event outside an abortion clinic.

Real News Michiana (RNM) recently obtained and released security camera footage of the event. In the video, you can see the vehicle swerve across a bike lane and onto the shoulder of the road where Rep. Walorski and another man were walking. Seemingly in an act of intimidation, the vehicle stopped abruptly before hitting them.

Walroski released a statement on the event:
“On Saturday, May 15th, I joined a group of pro-life Hoosiers in prayer while they gathered peacefully near a South Bend abortion clinic. As I was leaving, a vehicle traveling quickly down Lincoln Way West swerved toward the group and came to an abrupt stop just a few feet away from me. Given the recent increase in threats against members of Congress, the U.S. Capitol Police are investigating this incident.

“I stand with my fellow pro-life Hoosiers who work to defend the most vulnerable among us, the unborn. They will not be silenced or intimidated by threats or acts of violence from radical activists. As Americans, we can debate and disagree on fundamental issues, but it is absolutely unacceptable to endanger the lives of others.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy shared the clip in a tweet and voiced his support for Walorski, writing, "Absolutely sickening. While @RepWalorski and other pro-life Americans were praying together in defense of the unborn, an unhinged leftist nearly ran them over with his car. Conservatives will not be intimidated in expressing our right to free speech and in support of life!"

RNM identified the driver as Antifa activist Michael Case and found a Facebook comment in which he posted "Jackie needs to learn to stay out of the street." RNM also uncovered another video of him threatening pro-life activists.
