Iowa Grandmother, Donna Holman, Jailed for Discouraging Abortion (judge ordered a Psych. Test)
Christian Newswier ^ | 01-18-08 | Kevin P. McVicker

Posted on 01/18/2008 4:59:17 PM PST by Coleus

In March, 2007, Donna Holman was convicted of a charge of "harassment" as she engaged in "sidewalk counseling" to discourage women from entering a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Iowa City, Iowa. Judge Karen Egerton found Mrs.Holman guilty on the hearsay testimony of Planned Parenthood employees. The woman Mrs. Holman allegedly harassed did not even show up for the hearing. Despite being unable to confront her accuser and offer exculpatory evidence, the Iowa Supreme Court declined to review the case.

"While murderers and rapists run free, a harmless 72-year-old Christian grandmother, Donna Holman, must languish in jail for having the temerity of speaking out on behalf of the unborn," said Dr. Gary Cass, Chairman and CEO of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "The double standards of justice used against pro-life Christians are staggering. If Donna Holman had been a union or homosexual activist she would have been released and the trumped up charges dropped. Donna is only guilty of caring for the weakest and most vulnerable among us. The courts are guilty of aiding and abetting the abortion industry as it plies its bloody trade on bodies of innocent babies while harming unsuspecting women. It is especially troubling that she is beginning this ordeal on the eve of the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

Dear Friends of the Preborn,

Yesterday, January 15th, 43 people gathered at the Johnson County Courthouse in Iowa City, Iowa, in order to stand with Donna Holman and decry the injustice being committed against her. The hearing was held at 8:30 a.m. in front of Judge Karen Egerton. She quickly sent Donna to jail for 30 days because Donna refused to submit to her order for psychiatric evaluation and drugging. It was grievous to see Donna taken away for a case which had no basis in fact and was clearly a set-up wherein city officials acted in complicity with Planned Parenthood to remove a voice for the preborn from outside the deathcamp.

The rest of us soon tasted of the complicity the governing officials have with Planned Parenthood. As we stood outside the courthouse peacefully picketing after the hearing, the same two female officers who arrested Donna which resulted in the case for which Donna now sits in jail, came up to us and without warning or provocation said we were blocking the sidewalk and gave written orders for two of our people to travel back to Iowa City and appear in court next month. That the motivation was harassment was evident. The one officer was about as dizzy as they come, and the other, a bull-dyke, also had to mouth off about how Donna is insane.

The truth is, Donna is a quite sane 72-year-old grandmother who simply refuses to sit by silently while preborn babies are being butchered in Iowa City. She actually understands the God-given role of a woman. The love and concern wherewith she ministers outside the deathcamp is awesome. The disrespect these younger women (the officers) displayed towards Donna was grievous.

We took time to preach and exhort other government officials both inside the courthouse and outside the courthouse to not sit by silently and let this injustice against this elderly woman continue. You could see the shame on some of their faces as we spoke with them. They know the score and have decided their own well-being is more important. We also took time to instruct many government officials in the lesser-magistrate doctrine.

We spent most of the day outside the courthouse, though we did split up for a couple hours and hit several intersections throughout the city wherein we spoke up for the preborn.

Please pray for Donna while she is incarcerated. The wicked do not understand that the Christian is always in a win/win situation. Whether in jail or out, whether free or bond, we can serve Christ! Please pray that what the wicked government officials meant for evil, the Lord will use for good!

The rub on courts everywhere at every level is that if they rule in favor of any anti-abortion case brought before their court, they will be admitting they were wrong. Wrong to the tune of 50,000,000 deaths. To admit they got Roe wrong is never-ever going to happen. Leaving judges both sitting and retired a legacy of being murderers is not something they will allow to happen.

It seems to me that there's a certain clause in a certain legal document that establishes the right of the accused to face their accuser.

Is there any talk of taking it to the Supreme Court?

IN THE IOWA DISTRICT
COURT IN AND FOR JOHNSON COUNTY
STATE OF IOWA

CASE NO. SMSM067310
Plaintiff,

MOTION NUNC PRO TUNC FOR RECONSIDERATION OF SENTENCE
Vs.
DONNA HOLMAN, Defendant.

NOW COMES THE DEFENDANT, DONNA JEAN HOLMAN, pro se; being of sound mind, and of a sound body, pursuant to Iowa Code section 902.4, to move this court to reconsider its sentence in the above titled case.

I find it strange and disingenuous for a woman, especially for a mother, not to recognize the humanity and worth of a child in the womb. I find it especially strange and abhorrent that a female judge would somehow think it is normal for Planned Parenthood to systematically kill babies in the womb, but abnormal for me to oppose these serial killers.

Is it not hypocritical for this court to acknowledge a woman’s purported right in seeking medical help for destroying her child, while denying me the basic right to refuse “medical help?” I believe psychiatry to be a
psuedoscience on par with astrology, fortune telling, and palm reading.

Must I be punished for my refusal to recognize psychiatry as a legitimate medical science? What gives this court the right to order medical help for which I have no need or desire? Is it not “my body, my choice?” Must I also ingest mind altering psychotropic drugs prescribed by a psychiatrist to satisfy this court order? Does this court routinely order psychiatric evaluations for misdemeanor convictions?

If I were physically or mentally impaired I should indeed be pitied. This court is apparently questioning my morality! This court is acting as if it were lawful and morally righteous to slaughter the unborn. Yet
35 years ago it was unlawful, and unrighteous. Does changing the law change morality? Does changing the law change right or wrong? Does changing the law change the reality of aborticide?

In 1856, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Negro is “chattel.” By denying Dred Scott his freedom, slavery was made “safe and legal.” Had I stood before this court for opposing slavery or the “Jim Crow laws” instead of aborticide, would this court suspect me of being mentally
deficient or ill?

Prior to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the humanity of the unborn child was understood; his status as a “legal person” was unquestioned. It is the same perversion of law which refused to recognize the humanity and worth of “the Negro” that denies equal protection under the law to the
child in the womb.

Outside this courthouse, on numerous occasions, I have demonstrated the humanity and worth of the pre-born child. I have displayed pictures of aborted babies which should have excited compassion on their behalf. I have also distributed literature on these very court house steps with statistics of abortions in Iowa.

One out of every 3 children In Iowa is killed by aborticide. The Iowa Department of Public Health reports that 7,564 Iowa children were “terminated” in 2006. It is a great evil which permits this holocaust under color of law.

It is unjust for this court to find me guilty of harassment, to forbid me from performing my ministry to the pre-born at Planned Parenthood, to sentence me to a year’s probation, ordering me to get a psychiatric examination, and obey psychiatric advice.

Since I have been enjoined from being at Planned Parenthood there is nobody there to advise desperate women against aborticide! In consideration of the 4 days I have been incarcerated for this unjust conviction, I respectively request that this court prayerfully reconsider my sentence. Donna Jean Holman, pro se

Any time someone is facing jail time, they have the right to an attorney. Donna may have qualified for a public defender. I want to know if she waived her right to a lawyer and simply plead guilty to the charge before I make any further judgments as to how she ended up in jail for this. I’m as pro-life as they come, but I hate emotional stories that don’t tell the whole story. It puts the pro-life side in the same light as the other side.

I'm surprised to see the term 'rigid' left out. One can't dismiss the comparison between the "mentally ill" in the Stalin-era Soviet Union and Mrs. Holman, prior to going to court.

Even a public defender is better than representing yourself. I still wonder why she chose a bench trial. As a pro-lifer I’d only do that if the judge was very conservative.

Also potentially the first step to losing your Second Amendment rights - a bill re mental treatment, involuntary OR VOLUNTARY, is going to the Virginia General Assembly this session. I don't know if any other states have enacted something similar.

Where to begin?!?! Let me say working for Johnson Co I have seen this county be nothing, but OVERLY accommodating to Mrs. Holman! And ‘her people’ have been nothing, but mean and rude to myself and others. I can’t believe these people. I feel like I have to stand up for these so-called Christians because of the negative words and attitudes they are using towards myself and co-workers. I’m getting tired of making excuses for you all. Grow up please.

I am a Christian. I am pro-life. I do believe for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in. I also believe in following laws. I also believe in not harassing others. I believe that maybe serving this time in jail could be a benefit to Mrs. Holman. Ever heard of a man called Paul? Remember all the time he spent in prison and the work the Lord provided for him while he was there? God said there is a reason for every time in our life and this is just another season and challenge in Mrs. Holman’s life.

Oh and sure like the deputies would tase her. Are YOU kidding me purpleraine? Get your facts straight first. These deputies, judges, and other officials are people too. Why don’t you try and treat them like one?

Thank you for your information.

Putting a 72 year old woman in jail for 30 days because she would not submit to a psychiatric examination and any drugs that were prescribed as a result is not being accomodating to Mrs. Holman, is it?

Doesn’t your county/judge understand that subjecting a very SANE woman to a psychiatric examination is a Stalinist/KGB tactic that has been used in communist nations for decades to silence voices of protest in their countries?????

It is the HEIGHT of insult, degradation, and ignominy to even suggest that this woman needs psychiatric care for speaking to mothers of unborn children before they go in to have their very much ALIVE babies aborted/killed.

The mystery is why tens of thousands of Christian/Jewish/caring Americans are not at Abortatoriums every day doing what Mrs. Holman was doing.

Women in crisis pregnancies do NOT get the full story at Planned Parenthood or other abortatoriums regarding the viability of their unborn child, regarding the health risks of having abortions both at the time of the procedure and in later life, or the emotional/spiritual tragedies that result in the lives of women who have had abortions!!!!!!!

And why would Planned Parenthood TELL women these facts? They do NOT tell them because Planned Parenthood MAKES MILLIONS ON THE DESTROYED BABIES AND DAMAGED LIVES OF THE MOTHERS. Follow the money. Yet the abortion “industry” is NOT REGULATED like every other health facility/procedure is in this country.

For shame to Johnson county for your treatment of this woman. Please reconsider these actions and set this woman free!!!!!

While not artful in some respects, her motion gets her point across. Most attorneys would try to ingratiate themselves in some way with the judge. Mrs. Holman did not. Now she's in jail. Somehow I think she knew she might be called upon to make this sacrifice, and was willing.

Also please explain what right a judge has to order her to undertake a psychiatric evaluation and be drugged for this misdemeanor?

St. Paul was a man of God and was incarcerated by a bunch of immoral pagans, is that what you are the judge are? very poor analogy to say the least.

We have a first amendment and the people have a right to do sidewalk counseling at abortion mill, they have a right to show what an abortion looks like and a right to educate people to show what abortion is.

you sure you don’t work for planned parenthood?

We are in the time that Christ referred to as “the beginning of sorrows,” referring to the last days (Matthew 23:8; etc.).

More and more Christians will be brought before courts and so forth during these last days, as prophesied by Christ 2 thousand years ago

“But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils... and ye shall be brought before rulers for my sake, for a testimony against them.” - Jesus Christ, Mark 13:9

Jesus is coming soon; halleluiah.

God bless.

Please. People have been saying that for 2000 years, and they've all been wrong. What kind of arrogance does it take to believe that they all messed up, but you've got it figured out, and to state it as if it's a plain fact? You're looking at the same kinds of coincidental similarities that the rest of the end-times prediction set was looking at, but it wasn't about them, and it's not about us.

It reminds me of the old song: "You're so vain, you probably think this verse is about us."

Anyway if you read the end of the passage in Matthew 24, you'll see that Christ was telling his followers that all those things were to happen in that generation. They did.

Despite being unable to confront her accuser and offer exculpatory evidence, the Iowa Supreme Court declined to review the case.

So much for due process of law and being entitled to a fair trial. This is a judicial railroading. I'll bet $10 the judge is pro-abortion.

If this episode doesn't prove our Constitution and the judicial system is in the toilet waiting to be flushed, what will.

May the Lord use this to His Glory. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

The Holy Spirit wrote that one. This whole case should be dismissed. The Judge is way out of line. She's trying to get Donna Holman committed, this is the first step.
