On July 24, 2012, in blazing 100°F heat, Kathy Forck (photo right) approached a Stericycle truck driver who was leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Columbia, Missouri, to offer him a bottle of water.
Planned Parenthood hates Kathy Forck. Kathy spends hours outside their abortion clinic each week, encouraging women to choose life for their babies. As a result, Planned Parenthood brought trespass charges against her.
She was first found guilty at a trial in the municipal court, which could have landed her a big fine and 6 months in jail!
Chicago-based Thomas More Society appealed the ruling to the Circuit Court.
At a trial held just a few weeks ago, Planned Parenthood witnesses gave completely conflicting testimonies. Then, they showed the Judge video footage from a security camera supposedly documenting Kathy's trespass.
The Judge told Planned Parenthood that he could not see any evidence of a crime on the video. He sternly held that they simply could not prove their case.
In fact, when the Judge ruled to free Kathy of the bogus charges, he looked over to all the pro-abortion advocates sitting in the back of the courtroom and admonished them: "Even though you may not like my ruling, I do not want to hear a sound."
Kathy continues her pro-life work as a campaign director for 40 Days for Life, and as a member of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, offering peaceful sidewalk counseling to abortion-bound women in Missouri.
After years of sidewalk counseling and prayer vigils in Columbia, Planned Parenthood lost its license in February, 2014, and had to cease providing abortions there.
