Planned Parenthood Ann Arbor deathscort Bernie Klein is well known to pro-lifers as vulgar and volatile.
But on September 30, Klein went too far.
Pro-life sidewalk counselor Paul Dobrowolski was speaking with the father of a baby who was about to be aborted inside the Planned Parenthood clinic by his girlfriend, and Klein (pictured right), increasingly disturbed by the course of the conversation, finally goosed Dobrowolski, first with his knee and then aggressively with his hand.
There was a witness, so police were called, charges were filed, and Klein is to be arraigned on charges of assault and battery in district court on January 20, 2012.
Klein has shown animus against Dobrowolski in the past, spraying his bike with water and smacking him with a hose, according to Dobrowolski, with whom I spoke today. No witnesses, though.
Klein has also harassed other pro-lifers, for instance Steve Gendregske in June, which he caught on video. (When Klein says, “Give us a shot of your mother again,” he is speaking of a graphic abortion sign near Gendregske.)…
But Klein has an even more insidious history, arrested by the feds in 2009 as part of an assisted suicide ring, if you can believe it. Klein’s name pops up at 1:10 on this ABC News story…
It doesn’t take a psychiatrist to see Klein is bizarrely drawn to death. He has apparently volunteered as a Planned Parenthood deathscort for 21 years now, receiving praise from the organization as recently as its January 2009 newsletter…
Thankfully, Klein’s efforts to harass pro-lifers have now been thwarted.
