The group of pro-lifers had gathered outside A Preferred Women’s Health Center abortion facility. A Hand of Hope Pregnancy Resource Center, operating as Your Choice Pregnancy Clinic, is adjacent to the abortion facility. The pro-lifers were in front of the abortion facility when the Ford Escape veered towards them.
“The driver swerved far enough off the road to bottom out on the edge of the pavement, leaving visible scrape marks. The sound was loud enough that the clinic security came out to make sure everything was okay.”
According to the Raleigh PD, “The incident was investigated and there were no charges filed.”
“It’s unclear what the investigation involved. We provided the tag number in the initial call to the police and the officer on scene never asked for that, or the make and model of the vehicle (which we had). Despite physical evidence on the scene (tire marks and scrapes on the pavement), several eyewitnesses, and the clear danger presented to several people — including several young children — when the vehicle lost control before swerving back on the road, there seemed to be little interest from Raleigh police to even question the driver. Since they had his tag number, that would be a real possibility.”
