VIENNA, September 7, 2010 ( – In the latest chapter in a long history of abuse, the state prosecutor’s office in Vienna is attempting to stifle the legal claims of a pro-lifer, whom a local abortionist’s hired thugs were caught on tape cutting, harassing and intimidating outside an abortion mill.

Demonic screaming and moaning, groping, and other forms of psycho-terrorism against pro-lifers from abortionist Christian Fiala’s paid employees have been documented on video since at least 2007, and published by the Catholic Web site Footage shows the attackers sexually assaulting pro-lifers, including undoing a man’s zipper, pushing a wooden object into a woman’s crotch, and other disturbing behavior.

Fiala has admitted, in an interview with the Austrian weekly newspaper Falter, to hiring the thugs himself to harass the “religious activists.”

“They look deep into the eyes of the religious activists, dance around them, read the advance directives of the patients to them, and gabber recitatives at them,” said the abortionist, in an article entitled “A man they call baby-murderer.” Fiala also called for the government to forbid the pro-lifers to stand near the abortion facility.

The most recent videos show two men, who were video-taped in a huddle with the abortionist, poking a pro-lifer with the points of an umbrella, pushing him towards the street, cutting up his rosary, tearing away pro-life fliers, and even stealing his wallet. The videos clearly show one of the attackers kicking the pro-lifer, who cries out in pain, in the leg. In June 2009 the pro-lifer’s finger was bloodied after he was attacked with a pair of scissors.

At one point one of the attackers can be seen scrutinizing a row of cars parked along the street, evidently searching for hidden cameras.

A case filed in response to the bodily injury and theft inflicted by Fiala’s thugs has reportedly been pending for a year at the prosecutor’s office of Vienna. After the pro-lifer’s attorney took the case to the Superior Court of Vienna, the prosecutor’s office moved to stay the lawsuit, according to

Dietmar Fischer, executive director of Human Life International (HLI) Austria, confirmed that the state prosecutor was seeking to dismiss the pro-lifer’s case against the thugs.

Fischer told that Fiala has influenced laws in favor of abortion on an international scale, and has already won special protection from the Viennese government, which punishes pro-lifers with a €700 fine or six months in prison if they hand out fetal models to abortion-bound women.

“He is one of the worst abortion propagandists,” said Fischer, who noted he had recently spoken in the Polish parliament to lobby for abortion there.

Fischer suggested that concerned pro-lifers contact Claudia Bandion-Ortner, Vienna’s Minister of Jusitice; Vienna mayor Michael Haupl, and Heinz-Christian Strache, an Austrian MP and leader of the Freedom Party who has moved to create more restrictive abortion laws in the state.
