Cincinnati, OH (Sept 11, 2009) – Life Issues Institute was shocked and saddened to hear that long-time, pro-life activist Jim Pouillon was brutally gunned down in a cold act of murder this morning. He was reportedly killed by a 33-year-old man who is now in police custody.
Mr. Pouillon was killed outside Owosso High School in Michigan where he was holding a sign and protesting abortion. The victim, a 63-year-old man who required supplemental oxygen from a portable tank, was shot four times in the chest.
“It’s hard to imagine the hatred that motivates someone to murder, regardless of which side of the debate they’re on. It’s all desperately wrong,” said Bradley Mattes, executive director of Life Issues Institute. “The murder of millions of innocent unborn babies is spilling out onto the streets of America. I pray we can stop the killing on all fronts. Our prayers are with Jim’s family.”
Life Issues Institute condemns this brutal slaying as well as the daily killing of over 3,200 unborn babies in abortion facilities throughout the United States.
