Chicago-Area Police Threaten to Arrest Man for Simply Praying While Pushing Baby Stroller on Public Street

Apparently, it is now against the law to pray while taking your baby for a walk, and wearing any pro-life symbols or signs.

I’m unabashedly pro-life. I do not and will not hide that fact. This man was pushing his baby along in a stroller, and praying. He happened to walk past a protest against Planned Parenthood.

A police officer stopped him, grilled him, and threatened him. All the while, this man was protesting his innocence. I often wonder, what has happened to being “innocent until proven guilty?”

Will this happen to me someday? That this will happen to others again is of no doubt. Society has turned away from being a holiness centered community and now wages war against such.
