The Pro Life movement is non violent. They stay within the bounds of the law. There have been anti abortion activists who resorted to violence but they have been lone wolves in every case. It’s rare.
The FBI recently targeted what i would call the opponents of Joe Biden. Whether they are pro life are not the Biden DOJ sends the FBI after them. In this entry were going to take a look at 2 cases of pro life advocates being a target of the FBI and under the direction of the Biden administration.
Case 1 Mark Houck
Mark Houck, the founder and president of The King’s Men — a group dedicated to helping men become better husbands, fathers, and leaders — was arrested at his rural Pennsylvania home on Friday for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act during his regular sidewalk counseling outside of an abortion clinic in 2021. Speaking with LifeSiteNews, Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie, said that around 25 to 30 fully-armored FBI agents stormed their property early Friday morning, aiming their rifles as the children screamed in horror.
“They started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it,” Ryan-Marie said of the raid.
According to [Houck’s wife]Ryan-Marie, the charges were from an incident in which he shoved a pro-abortion activist who had been harassing his 12-year-old son in front of an abortion clinic during one of his sidewalk counseling sessions. The charges were reportedly “thrown out of the District Court in Philadelphia” earlier this year only to later be picked up by Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice.
Houck’s could be sentenced up to 11 yr in prison.
Case 2 The Tennessee Group
The DOJ indicted 11 pro-life activists who investigators said blocked access to a Tennessee abortion clinic during a protest, saying they violated the FACE Act.
The activists, according to the indictment, organized an event blockading an abortion clinic near Nashville earlier this year. The DOJ alleges the group physically prevented both employees of the clinic and at least one would-be patient from entering the building in early March. The federal FACE Act prohibits demonstrators from blocking access to abortion clinics.
You can see the incident from video included in Glenn Beck’s report.
I watched the incident with the Tennessee group. I have a totally different take on this incident compared to the FBI raid of Mark Houck.
The police approach the narrow hallway and request the group take their activity outside the building. They didn’t ask them to stop and they were respectful. The group ignored the officer. It’s a tough call for me to say whether they were violating the FACE Act or not. I won’t make that call. However, I will point out that in other incidents we recommend the person follow the orders of the LEO and avoid an escalated confrontation. The officer in this building was very patient and non threatening.
IMHO they should have complied and moved outside the building. They were not being asked to quit and they were not going to be arrested for their peaceful protest. This was a far cry from the swat raid at the Houck’s residence. The hallway was narrow and that makes it difficult for me to determine if the group were clearly blocking access. It’s not my point here.
However, we all know how the pro abortion attacks on pregnancy centers are treated by the DOJ. They’re clearly violent and threatening but the DOJ looks the other way. We all know how the pro abortion protestors at the Justice’s homes were treated before the Dobb’s decision on Roe v Wade came down-we recall the leak that started the firestorm.
Federal law — Section 1507 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code — clearly states that it is unlawful to protest near a “residence occupied or used by [a] judge, juror, witness, or court officer” with the intent of influencing “the discharge of his duty,” adding that anyone who “uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”
It’s considered an obstruction of justice.
This is nothing compared to the attacks on Pro Life Pregnancy Centers and the threats spray painted in graffiti by the Ruth Was Here pro abortion group. The mo is threats and intimidation as well as vandalism of property.
The pregnancy resource centers, which provide free medical and financial support to pregnant and new mothers, have been spray-painted with pro-abortion and anarchist messages and symbols. Several have been set on fire. Other pro-life groups which advocate for the right to life have also had their offices vandalized.
The attacks appear to be organized under the umbrella of two domestic terror groups — Jane’s Revenge and Ruth Sent Us — which have arisen since the Supreme Court opinion leak was published on May 2, 2022. Many of the attacks have similar messages, including “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you”.
No response from the FBI or DOJ. No media outrage. They’re looking the other way. So much for our boy Joey being a Catholic. So much for equal justice under the law.
