People v Zastrow

 Advocate for the Preborn, Cal Zastrow
Posted at the American Freedom Law Center:

On August 3, 2017, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) entered its appearance in the case of People of the City of Westland v. Calvin John Zastrow. In this criminal case, AFLC is representing Cal Zastrow, a pro-life demonstrator who was unlawfully arrested by police officers from the City of Westland, Michigan for allegedly disturbing the peace.

Upon making its appearance, AFLC promptly filed a motion to dismiss the criminal charge on constitutional grounds. A hearing on the motion is set for September 6.

On June 24, 2017, Zastrow, along with several other pro-life demonstrators, were engaging in free speech activity on the public sidewalk outside of the Northland Family Planning Center, a notorious abortion facility located on Ford Road in the City of Westland.

According to the City’s own police report, Zastrow was arrested because he “could be heard from over 50 [feet] away yelling about babies being murdered,” and his “actions were gaining the attention of people passing by and drawing the attention of employees at the location attempting to conduct business. . . .” The police also charged that Zastrow “continued to yell quotes of scripture and accusations of murder.” In other words, Zastrow was arrested for engaging in First Amendment protected, pro-life, free speech activity. He was placed in handcuffs and detained in the police holding cell until he could post bond.

I WAS A DISNEY PRINCESS AND HAD AN ABORTION

By Deanna Falchook - Posted at Medium:

I woke up this morning in the shadows of Cinderella Castle, to a phone call from a friend who knows my story well. She informed me of a recent tweet by Planned Parenthood regarding the need for a Disney Princess who’s had an abortion.

We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a disney princess who’s trans.
In 1981, I worked at Disneyworld as a Singer/Dancer where my voice was used in recordings as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty for special events and ongoing shows. I performed on average 5 shows a day in front of Cinderella’s castle singing and dancing to “Some Day my Prince Will Come,” and “When You Wish Upon a Star.” At the age of 18, I became pregnant and had an abortion to keep my job as a singing princess. There was no pressure from the company or management to abor…
