With the end of Roe v. Wade, Democrats are getting desperate. Numerous states have set strict limits on abortion. And it could only be a matter of time before more states ban the practice altogether. Democrats are watching one of their golden geese get put down, so they are going to great lengths to intimidate and persecute pro-life Americans.
The Biden administration is perhaps the worst offender. Last year, a pro-life man (a religious American and father) was speaking with women outside a Planned Parenthood. One of the pro-abortion workers confronted him, outside, getting in the man’s face, and even insulting him in front of his son. But when the pro-life man simply elbowed the abortion worker, the DOJ arrested him.
Biden’s DOJ wanted this pro-life American, who literally did nothing wrong, to face 11 years in jail. Thankfully, the courts had a different opinion.
From Daily Wire:
A Catholic pro-life activist facing 11 years in prison for allegedly violating a federal law prohibiting people from blocking others from entering an abortion clinic was acquitted on Monday following a week-long trial…
Breen told the outlet that the case was thrown out of state court but revived by the Biden administration nearly a year after the incident. Further, Breen said, some 20 FBI agents raided Houck’s home when they arrested him, treating him “as if he was a drug lord or a mafia boss.”
Mark Houck, a pro-life activist, was acquitted of charges brought against him by the DOJ. He was charged with violating the FACE Act, which makes it a crime if anyone tries to interfere with another person’s ability to receive “reproductive care.” Meaning, it is against federal law to stop someone from getting an abortion.
But the law only limits actions such as violence or intimidation–and Congress limited it to being inside a clinic. Houck was outside the clinic, on the street, simply speaking with a few people. It was Bruce Love, a pro-abortion worker at the clinic, who first confronted Houck.
He was the one who got in Houck’s face, prompting him to elbow the man out of his way. By all appearances, it was the abortion worker who was trying to intimidate and harass Houck and his son. But Biden’s DOJ went after the pro-life father, raiding his home with 20 FBI agents.
Raiding a man’s home, because he elbowed an obnoxious idiot? Something’s very wrong, here. Houck committed no crime but, as his lawyer stated, Biden was trying to make an example of him. Biden was essentially saying, “If you stand up for your pro-life beliefs, we will send you to jail.”
Thankfully, Biden failed. As he usually does. This case upholds Americans’ First Amendment rights. And it sends a message to pro-abortion radicals who seek to violate pro-life Americans. But Biden is far from being finished forcing his abortion agenda onto Americans.
Don’t be surprised if the DOJ or another Democrat pulls similar stunts elsewhere.
- A pro-life Catholic father was acquitted of charges after the DOJ went after him.
- He was accused of violating the FACE Act, for speaking with women outside Planned Parenthood.
- Houck could have faced 11 years in jail, though he did nothing wrong.
