UPDATE: Planned Parenthood Questions Angela Michael’s Tactics

Kevin Killeen

ST. LOUIS–(KMOX)– A Highland, Illinois mother of 13 known for her protests outside a Granite City abortion clinic announces she’s running for Congress as a Democrat on the abortion issue. 

Retired obstetrics nurse Angela Michael says she wants to air more than 250 commercials in the St. Louis television market featuring images of aborted fetuses.

“I want America to see the message behind abortions,” Michael said, “I want them to see what happens to babies daily.   And I also want to show them healthy babies that we rescue and we save in our ultrasound van.”

Michael says her van provides ultrasounds to women considering abortions outside the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite city.

Meanwhile, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis — Paula Gianino —  says Michael has a reputation as an “extremist.”

“This is a woman who video tapes the faces and cars of patients that go to facilities that provide abortion care, and she puts them up on her website,” Gianino said.   Gianino says Michael also has a reputation for “yelling and screaming” outside of  abortion clinics.  

KMOX left a message with the Angela Michael for Congress campaign number and got a call back from her husband, Dan Michael.  

We have pictures of patients on our website,” Dan Michael said, “It’s not a violation of privacy.  It’s public record.  It’s like if somebody’s going into a grocery store.   If they don’t want to get their picture taken, then they shouldn’t get an abortion.” 

Dan Michael says their photography helped lead to the arrest of an Arkansas sexual predator, who was caught bringing an underage girl to the clinic for an abortion. 

Her decision to run was announced on the steps of the Old Court House in downtown St. Louis, flanked by pro-life presidential candidate Randall Terry, who is running as a Democrat.   Terry, who says he is already running ads in Iowa,  says he’s trying to create a “crisis of conscience.”

“If I can cause three or four percent of the Evangelicals and Catholics who voted in for Obama in 2008 to not vote for him in 2012, I could perhaps keep him from being elected,” Terry said, “I can’t beat Obama in the primary, obviously, but I can wound him.”

Michael says she is prepared to do legal battle with any television stations that might oppose airing her ads on the basis of their content. 

“Well, number one I have the Lord on my side,” Michael said, “but number two I do have legal representation if they don’t” (run the ads).

She says similar campaign ads have run in other markets and are protected speech.

Michael says she doesn’t know which congressional district she will file in yet, because of redistricting changes in the Highland area.

  • Debra Davis

    Angela Michael for U S House.

    Small Victories Exposed dot com should be notified about this


  • David Lewis

    Everyone should go to AngelaMichaelForCongress.com. Debra, you are a collaborator with child killers. How many babies have you saved? My guess is zero. Small Victories has saved over 4000 babies from death.

    • Angela (not Michael)

      Hey David, I did go to the campaign website and couldn’t even find her position on specific pro-life legislation. This woman is clearly not a serious contender and it looks like she and Randall Terry are both grandstanding. Alienating the press by forcing them to air graphic aborted baby ads might not be very smart or effective. It just might backfire on both of these pretend candidates.

      • Angela (not Michael)

        Also, for the claim she has single-handedly (?) saved 4000 babies. Can this be proven? How does she know the women didn’t go through with the abortions? Has she followed up on each and every baby? I think Ms. Michael needs to hire a professional campaign consultant.

    • Debra Davis

      Really David?

      Can you prove they have saved 4000 babies or are you just repeating what Angele has told you?

      How do you know I am a collaborator?

      How many babies have YOU saved David?

      The child molester in Arknsas wasn’t arrested because of their photos, he was already arrested. Their photo just proved his CAR was there, not him.

      He was NEVER convicted BTW.

    That’s right. If you disagree with the woman that has proclaimed herself as “God’s woman”, then you must be pro choice.

    I have been to that clinic as a pro lifer, and I have seen her behavior. She should be afraid of god’s retribution and justice.

    She yells alright…. at other pro lifers.

    Do it her way or get lost. That is her creed.

    Jeffery Cheshier chose the coward’s way out and committed suicide before the trial began

  • jennifer

    That’s a lie. I used to work inside Hope Clinic and on my last day I commended Angela for her kindness towards the women. She has my vote!!

    • Keri

      No one who has worked AT Hope Clinic says they worked INSIDE the clinic.

  • Angela (not Michael)

    The title of this story is “Planned Parenthood Questions Angela Michael’s Tactics.” Pro-lifers who have been on the front lines standing in front of Planned Parenthood and Hope Clinic also question her tactics… May God grant Angela the grace to repent.

  • Eric Kefauver

    I have seen her tactics. The reason no local churches want to standat the clinic is mainly how she acts and talks.

    We don’t need the problems she brings with her.

  • Justin

    Anti-Choice whackos trying to pull a Wisconsin here by running Phonycrats (aka Fake Dems). Angeia is just a fraud, as is Randall Terry and the entire anti-choice movement.

  • David Lewis

    Justin, what is choice? Why do you use code words instead of words that mean something? Why don’t you just say you like to cut babies into pieces and throw them in landfills?

    I’m sure you remember in Nazi Germany, the pro choice crowd was rounded up and tried for crimes against humanity. “Dr.” Karl Brandt was an abortionist in Nazi Germany and he was tried during the Nuremberg Trials and executed for the murder of unborn babies.

    • Justin

      David, Abortion does NOT = Murder, you Anti-Choice/”pro-life” dolt!

      • David Lewis

        The international community sure thought so after WWII. God thinks it’s murder also whether you believe in him or not. Justin, just like you believe that abortion does not equal murder, there were cowards that thought that blacks were not human either. History will judge you.
