Two senior citizen anti-abortion protesters were attacked outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic in North Baltimore on Friday morning, sending one to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

“Please pray for my dear friend, Mark Crosby,” President of the Baltimore County Right to Life organization Jay Walton said on Facebook Friday. “He was viciously attacked yesterday, May 26, 2023 while he was praying in front of Planned Parenthood in Baltimore City. He and another prolifer were attacked from behind and the thug ran away.”

Mark Crosby and Dick Shafer have been confirmed as the victims in Friday's attack. Both men are over the age of 70, according to police reports.

WMAR reported that surveillance video shows the suspect tackling Shafer, disturbing a large flower planter outside of the abortion facility. When Crosby came to Shafer’s aid, the assailant shoved Crosby to the ground, and the person was seen punching and kicking him in the face.

Investigators told local news outlets WBAL and WMAR that they are searching for the suspect.

According to an officer’s narrative of the situation provided to The Daily Signal by the Baltimore Police Department, Crosby told police that he went to Schaefer’s aide after “an unidentified” white male attacked Schafer, after which the unidentified man attacked Crosby (Crosby’s and Schafer’s names are redacted in the police narrative).

He “could not remember many details immediately after being attacked,” but the officer noted that Schaefer, the second victim, “was outside the Planned Parenthood being attended to by nurses from a local business.”

Schaefer told the officer that “the suspect had approached volunteer members of the Planned Parenthood and spoke with them before directing his attention to him,” then “spoke with him in an aggressive manner, opposing Mr. Schaefer’s pro-life ideals and without warning tackled him into a large flowerpot.”

“Mr. Schaefer advised that the suspect then went after Mr. Crosby before walking away.”

Arielle Del Turco, director for the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., told Congress earlier this month that 420 incidents occurred in 45 states and Washington, D.C., between January 2018 and September 2022, including 342 occurrences of vandalism, 58 arson attacks or attempts, 12 gun-related incidents, 11 bomb threats, and 19 other incidences involving assault, threats, and interruption of worship services.

In April, the center reported an additional 54 incidents in the final months of 2022, and 69 in the first quarter of 2023.
