Rachel Currie of Naperville was allegedly threatened by an off-duty 41 year old Chicago police officer near the Planned Parenthood facility in Aurora on Wednesday.
The man, who has not been identified by either Aurora or Chicago police, came to the facility with a 31 year old female.
When he was approached by Currie, one of the sidewalk counselors who offers suggested alternatives to abortion, he allegedly displayed a gun and then proceeded into the Planned Parenthood facility.
Aurora police say they found a gun inside the man's vehicle, but he claims he only displayed his badge to her, which he also had.
However, there's no explanation as to why he would be flashing a Chicago police badge in Aurora when he's off-duty.
Eric Schiedler of the Pro-Life Action League says while sidewalk counselors have felt threatened before, this is the first time anyone has used a gun.
Planned Parenthood says the incident happened outside of their property, but they will cooperate with Aurora police.
Criminal charges may be pursued against the off-duty police officer and it remains to be seen if any other disciplinary action will be taken by Chicago police as well.
