Pro-Life Advocate Allegedly Assaulted

On April 13, Donna Durning was praying and witnessing outside Kentucky’s last abortion clinic, like she has done almost every day for 23 years.

But that afternoon, a young lady exiting the clinic allegedly grabbed the elderly Durning by both shoulders and shoved her to the ground.

Durning suffered a head injury and a broken leg, requiring surgery to reconstruct the femur and then several days of rehab.

The incident reportedly occurred as Durning approached the young lady and offered a little card with a number to call if the woman wanted to talk at some point in the future.

The young lady has been charged with assault in the second degree for “intentionally caus[ing] serious physical injury.” The Class C felony charge carries the possibility of 5-10 years in prison.
