  WASHINGTON, D.C., February 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Daniel Heenan has been fighting for justice from Planned Parenthood and the Metropolitan Police Department since 2004, when he says he was assaulted by a Planned Parenthood security guard while counseling women outside Planned Parenthood’s D.C. abortion clinic.

  Heenan now teaches history and religion at Our Lady of Hope Catholic School in Sterling, VA. He has written  about his experiences for LifeSiteNews.com and how he believes there is an insidious link between abortion and the miscarriage of justice he experienced. Heenan believes the incident also confirms that abortion is really a spiritual battle as well.

  What Heenan describes is an alleged account of collusion between the justice system and Planned Parenthood to attempt to deny him due process of law. Heenan writes that D.C. police officers deliberately failed to perform their duty while witnessing security guard Harry James assault Heenan from behind, and then the officers warned Heenan not to file charges.

  One officer, wrote Heenan, later intimidated sidewalk counselors with lewd comments and then threw him against a fence threatening him with arbitrary arrest. Heenan told LifeSiteNews that the case against Planned Parenthood would have remained buried if not for the insistence of one lone police officer, Lt. Smith, who for his pains was later transferred out of the district.

“As committed Catholics, honesty is important to us. As committed abortion proponents, deceit and dishonesty is part and parcel of their business,” says Heenan, who charges that Planned Parenthood obstructed and perjured their way through the investigation.

  Heenan says he had much assistance from The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which provided a substantial legal team to represent him in his actions against Harry James and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

“I have been terribly dismayed to learn that all the witnesses of the defense have described themselves as Catholic or as having been raised Catholics,” Heenan told LifeSiteNews.com, adding these pro-abortion “Catholics” wore their faith as “a badge of honor.

  However, the nature of the battle for life is not just political or legal, but also spiritual, writes Heenan, and means that Christians must zealously pass down and spread the fundamentals of their faith, or else new generations may “become casualties of the culture of death and moral relativism”.
