Chicago Cop Pulls Gun on Pro-Life Sidewalk Counselor

A Chicago police officer was cited in a report for intimidating a pro-life advocate helping counsel women outside a Planned Parenthood abortion business in Aurora. The officer was written up for disorderly conduct after flashing his badge at the pro-life sidewalk counselor, who says he also brandished his gun.

The incident happened about 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to a release from Aurora police.

The off-duty officer and a 30-year-old woman were approached by a 31-year-old woman as they sat in a car in a parking lot adjacent to the clinic in the 3000 block of East New York Street in Aurora. The woman outside the car apparently intended to hand the couple some pieces of literature, when, according to the officer, he displayed his police badge and the woman backed off, the release said.
