What are the details?
Thomas More Society Counsel Michael McHale explained that the offenders have often sought out Schanzenbach for harassment wherever she stands, even when she remains across the street from the abortion facility to avoid confrontation. The offenders subject Schanzenbach to a variety of abuses, including surrounding her and blocking her from view with large, open umbrellas; licking her arms; following her very closely wherever she walks — even back to her vehicle hundreds of feet away from the abortion facility; stealing and destroying her leaflets; and hurling profanities, taunts, and obscene gestures directly in her face.

These abusers boast online about their illegal conduct, identifying themselves as “Pro-Choice Bristol.” Their Facebook post, “Pink Manifesto,” states that they will “use any means necessary to physically block” pro-life witnesses “from sight” and will do “anything at all not being enforced equally for the protection of patients whether demonstrably legal or not.” The radical group also declares that “When local government fails” it will “step in.”
Schanzenbach has been on the receiving end of harassment, abuse, and stalking by Denise Skeen, along with Denise’s adult daughters, Alethea and Rowan. Each is named as a respondent in petitions for court orders of protection. Also named is Cheryl Hanzlik, who on multiple occasions has attempted to cause permanent hearing damage by pointing a bullhorn blaring loud police siren sounds directly into Schazenbach’s face. Supplemental court complaints have also been filed against Hanzlik and Alethea Skeen for ongoing illegal harassment.
The law firm said that the cases will return to court in April when Schanzenbach’s legal team will present substantial video evidence and live witness testimony demonstrating the ongoing abuse against her.
