Pro-Life Activists Assaulted in DC


WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Abortion supporters attacked two pro-life activists sidewalk counseling outside of Planned Parenthood’s mega-abortion center in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. Despite video of the attacks, D.C. police will not press charges, the pro-life activists said.

Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) is an anti-abortion group that allies itself with liberals on other issues, including support for Black Lives Matter what it calls “trans rights,” according to its website. Also on Saturday, members of the group also faced attacks at another location where they were handing out free supplies to help pregnant and parenting moms.

Abortion activists “assaulted” Terrisa Bukovinac and Michael Gribbin, both with PAAU, “outside the DC Planned Parenthood” on Saturday morning, according to a news release from the group.

Fr. Dan Leary Update (Part 2)


I was informed, via the grapevine, that the real reason Fr. Dan Leary was asked to return was that he was given only a three (3) year leave of absence from the Archdiocese of Washington to do this mission work.   

Everything that I had heard or at least understood was that this was permanent.  

 Maybe Fr. Dan was hoping that it would be extended?  

Maybe it was understood that this part of the agreement was not to be discussed?

Maybe I was not told the truth on this?   

 Don't have an answer to that.  Maybe you do.

Fr. Dan Leary and Human Trafficing (not what you think) in LifeSite News

 We think of Christ on the cross here, the Christ who suffered torment, but also the Christ who rose,” Leary said. “Because of the heavy trauma, many of these girls have spiritually and emotionally died. It is work to enter into the wound of abuse, to allow a man – even a priest – who desires to spiritually help them to enter into that dark place. But these girls are also smart; they know they have to live.”

“When they fully open themselves to healing, this dark place of theirs becomes a place of the empty tomb; where death and evil lose, where the girls begin to crawl out of their caves.”

Several sisters wept and confided to me of their love for Leary. “He has awakened me – he has awakened all the Sisters – to the sacrificial love of a father,” Sr. Marilyn said. Sr. Margie Cheong, the woman who once headed all the Sisters of Mary communities throughout Central and South America, said Leary’s fatherly presence – especially as it relates to his emphasis on healing in front of the Eucharist – has transformed the entire community.

“Even if I asked [Leary] to slow down, I couldn’t do anything to stop him. It is very strange; his work ethic to help the children and the sisters seems a supernatural grace,” she said. “All of us need an hour or two to ourselves to break away, but not him. He keeps going… Many Sisters have told me that his priesthood and his spiritual direction have changed their lives.”




A dozen or so priests, a bishop, and seminarians have visited Leary over the past few years to assist with the mountain of his spiritual work. “I was wiped out after a few days,” said a priest from Washington, D.C.

Fr. Dan’s work is non-stop; simply, it is a supernatural grace that sustains him. The devil is relentless, and Fr. Dan’s work in these villas is proof that with God’s supernatural grace, a single priest can be an instrument that brings large and relentless measures of love and healing.

All day long he works with kids who’ve been beaten up, and individually, he listens to them all. But here’s the thing; these kids are healing. He’s equipping them with the spiritual tools to live again and be productive members of their villages, colleges, and communities. In some measure, he is helping to rebuild the Catholic Church in Mexico through these children.

83 Year Old Pro-Lifer Attacked in Takoma Park

 An 83-year-old pro-life woman was physically attacked by a much younger woman as she prayerfully protested outside an abortion facility in a suburb of Washington, D.C.  

The unprovoked, brutal assault on Olga Fairfax occurred at a busy intersection on Saturday morning, July 8, in front of a Takoma Park office building housing the Silver Spring Gynecology and Family Planning. This business offers medical and surgical abortions. 

Longtime pro-life warrior Olga Fairfax had stationed herself and her 4’ x 6’ sign depicting an aborted child when, despite heavy traffic, a woman stopped her car in the road, jumped out, and proceeded to land one blow after another relentlessly on Fairfax’s body.
