A pregnant woman has lost one of her eyes after police used unnecessary, excessive force against her and her boyfriend. I’d love to know why the people who call themselves “pro-life” aren’t worried about her or her fetus? It’s because they know only to mess with those who can’t do them any harm. So police brutality against a pregnant Black woman, which could cause issues to the fetus,…eh, issue worth dismissing, right?
They are not pro-life, they are anti-choice and anti-woman; please never believe a word they say; trust yourself. You know yourself best. Better than anyone, especially better than people who have no idea who you are. Hypocrites, who won’t fight for infants or pregnant women if it is not convenient for them.

A pregnant St. Louis woman has lost her left eye and incurred severe injury to her right eye after she was struck in the face by a bean bag fired by police at a gas station on the edge of Ferguson, Missouri.
On Monday, the night St. Louis county prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that no charges would be brought against Officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, Donnella Conner was in a confrontation with cops attempting to clear a BP gas station.
Police claim that Conner’s boyfriend drove towards them in his car, the New York Daily News noted, while Conner sat in the passenger seat. Police fired a bean bag round towards the car, shattering Conner’s window and striking her face. Conner challenges the police narrative. She told KMOV that her boyfriend, De’Angelas Lee, was attempting to drive away when police fired the less-than-lethal rounds.
“They pulled up while we were coming towards the street, De’Anglas was trying to get away, they blocked us from the side, front and back,” Conners said.
“I will have justice for what they did to me,” Conner wrote on Facebook Thursday. “But I’m happy I’m alive.” Images of her bandaged face have garnered viral attention on social media.
According to KMOV, police said that a warrant has been issued for Lee’s arrest, with a bond set at $50,000. No police officers are currently being investigated over the incident. On Monday, during a night of intense protest nationwide, 16 individuals were arrested in the area around the gas station where Conner was injured.
Conner spoke to the media from hospital:
