* Today Jo Scott was Sentenced and Served: Pro-life hero Jo Scott was sentenced today by Denver Judge Claudia Jordan to 270 days in jail (180 suspended unless Jo is falsely accused again), a large fine, and two years probation. But, not to be outdone by local pro-abortion officials, the Obama administration has filed a civil lawsuit against Ken and Jo Scott for alleged violations of FACE, the pro-abortion Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act. If any of the dozens of fabricated accusations in the complaint were true, with the thousands of hours of video footage taken by Planned Parenthood, Ken and Jo would have been charged with crimes and would be in the Denver County Jail. Ken and Jo expose the guilt of those who advocate the dismembering of unborn children, angering pro-aborts, and for that reason they are hated and are an easy target for the wrath of those who shake their fist at God while they defend abortions like the sterile description by the U.S. Supreme Court, that "a leg might be ripped off the fetus."
* Justice by Committee Fails Again: A jury convicted Jo Scott on two charges of talking to someone. The claim was that it was verbal harassment, "in a manner likely to provide a violent or disorderly response." The jury determined this when the complaining witness, Laura Brown, described Jo's demeanor as "worried," worried that is, concerned, for the complainant, and "calm."

AT THE LAST MOMENT BOTH WOMEN WALK OUT OF THIS CAMERA SHOT: But the alleged crime occurred when the car drives past (so that's on the video), and the complaining witness discounts the prosecutors claims while on the stand, and the prosecutors chose to not enter video into evidence even though they had it, so here it is:
* "The Killing Place" Already Upheld as Free Speech: Judge Claudia Jordan let stand a conviction based on Jo's free-speech comments warning that the abortionist murders unborn children. But pro-lifers have already won this issue in a case arising from their presence at Denver's Planned Parenthood abortion mill. From Celebrate Life, Sept/Oct 1993:
U.S. Appeals Court Judge Stephen Anderson recently reversed a 1991 federal district court decision when he ruled that the free-speech rights of two pro-life women had been violated by two Denver police officers who arrested the women during a January 1988 demonstration. The officers had asked Joan Cannon and Leila Jeanne Hill to cover their sign, which read: "The Killing Place." When the women refused, the officers arrested them on charges of disturbing the peace. Anderson ordered "the plaintiffs' cause remanded for further proceedings."
