Charge Dropped against Abortionist Accused of Running over Pro-Life Activist With His Car

Ashley Sadler : Sep 20, 2023

"All of this evidence could have been brought forth. I don't know if any of it was. I have to believe it wasn't, because if it was, there's no possible way the judge could have dismissed the charge." -Zimmerman's attorney Robert Dunn

(Saginaw Township, MI) — [] A judge on Friday dismissed a felony charge against a Michigan abortionist who allegedly struck a pro-life activist with his vehicle earlier this year, causing him to suffer a broken leg.

On Friday, a Saginaw County judge dismissed the case against 88-year-old abortionist Theodore Roumell, who was charged with felonious assault for running into pro-life activist Mark Zimmerman in the driveway of the Women's Center of Saginaw on Friday, June 23.

Zimmerman told LifeSiteNews at the time he had been outside the abortion facility with about five other pro-life Christians to "share the Gospel and also offer physical help" to abortion-seeking women, as well as to plead with the abortionists not to kill babies.

He said he began to walk across the driveway to the clinic just as Roumell started to pull in, "faster than normal," at which time Roumell ran into him with his vehicle, driving over his knee before backing up.

On Friday, a district court held a preliminary hearing to consider the evidence in the case. Both Zimmerman and Roumell were in attendance, and Zimmerman testified that he had been "stunned" and "trying to get out of the way" of Roumell's car as the abortionist drove toward him, a local ABC affiliate reported.

Video footage played during the hearing shows Zimmerman standing in the middle of the driveway and then gradually walking backwards across the road in front of Roumell's car as the abortionist continued to slowly drive forward, ultimately striking Zimmerman and running over him with his left front wheel.

Roumell's attorney told the court that Zimmerman had been intentionally blocking the driveway in violation of state and federal law. (Screengrab image)

On Monday, Zimmerman's attorney Robert Dunn told LifeSiteNews that the case was scrapped in the preliminary hearing because "the district judge, after hearing the evidence, dismissed the case on the grounds that the evidence was insufficient."

The attorney, who said he wasn't present in court on Friday, said it's unusual for a case to be dropped in a preliminary hearing when the alleged victim testifies, since "credibility issues are for a jury in circuit court at the trial, not for the district judge in ruling at a preliminary hearing."

He said he thinks the judge must not have seen the evidence he had compiled to support the case, including "signed witness statements... that the doctor had threatened to do this recently and then did it, and that there was a prior case at least ten years ago where he did this to somebody else"...
