I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)An investigation is under way in connection with an assault outside an abortion clinic in which a veteran pro-life activist was seriously injured.

The incident involved Donna Durning, an elderly woman who is a longtime sidewalk counselor at E.M.W. Women's Surgical Center, a Louisville, Kentucky, abortion clinic. Attorney Vince Heuser tells OneNewsNow that Durning was helping during the latest "40 Days for Life" campaign.

"When an apparent patient came out of the clinic, Donna handed her a pamphlet about post-abortion healing," Heuser explains. "The woman went to a car that was waiting at the curb and then came back over and pushed Donna down hard, causing Donna to incur a broken femur and a head injury."

Durning has undergone reparative surgery, is currently in rehabilitation, and is expected to make a full recovery.

According to the attorney, Durning – who he describes as "a pro-life trooper" – is well loved and respected in the community.

"Donna … has been on the sidewalk for decades and she is the most gracious, the most gentle woman that ever shows up down there," he shares. "She has genuine concern for the women, and she obviously has genuine concern for the children."

Heuser says the police department has assigned a detective to investigate, but he is conducting a probe of his own. (See related article)
