Woman Battered by Abortion Clinic Manager – Finds Support From Pro-Life Group

KANSAS CITY, Kan., Dec. 27, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — The Life Legal Defense Foundation will assist pro-life activist Mary Anne Sause, who was a victim of a physical attack by the manager of an abortion clinic, with her testimony at the manager’s upcoming criminal trial scheduled for December 28 in Kansas City municipal court.

“Witnesses saw and reported the attack, and we want to make sure that Ms.Sause gets the justice she deserves,” said Dana Cody, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. “This is especially traumatic because she’s been a victim of rape, and she shouldn’t have to suffer again at the hands of an abuser.”

Sause was putting pro-life signs away in her car after standing with them near the Central Family Medicine abortion clinic, located at 720 Central Avenue in Kansas City. The manager, Mark Pederson, approached her car and took pictures of her license plate. Then he body-slammed her to the ground, and witnesses heard her screams. His criminal trial will be on December 28.

“The Life Legal Defense Foundation is ready to assist Ms.Sause and her attorney when further legal action is taken,” said Cody.
