Phoenix abortion doctor arrested after pointing gun at sidewalk protester

A Phoenix abortion doctor has been arrested after pointing a gun at a pro-life sidewalk protester from inside his car as he drove past him on his way out of the clinic parking lot Thursday.

The exchange was caught by pro-life demonstrator Elvis Kesto’s body camera.

The video shows 52-year-old abortion doctor Ronald Yunis exiting the clinic parking lot in his red Tesla car with the windows closed. Kesto says, “That’s the abortionist right there,” and, walking toward the vehicle as it exited the lot, said, “Dude, you’re a coward.” The abortion doctor is then seen brandishing a handgun and pointing it directly at Kesto as he pulled out of the parking lot and drove away.

After multiple pleas from the pro-life ministry, Yunis was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault.

“We are peaceful Christians out here to minister,” said Pastor Jeff Durbin. “No basis under law to pull out a weapon and point it at somebody.”
