In what is being termed an injustice, the federal government of the United States has filed criminal charges against eleven pro-life demonstrators who blocked entry to an abortion clinic in Tennessee last year.
In the meantime, the Department of Justice cannot explain its apparent inability to investigate and prosecute pro-abortion radicals who have carried out violent attacks against pro-life pregnancy clinics, agencies, and churches across the country since May.
The discrepancy is astounding. Some claim that the Biden administration openly discriminates against the pro-life movement in favor of its pro-abortion agenda.
If true, this would be a grave misapplication of the law.
In March of 2021, eleven pro-life campaigners visited the Carafem abortion facility in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, according to Live Action News. The activists, whose ages ranged from 24 to 87, entered the building, which houses many businesses.
The protestors entered the Carefem hallway and began singing and praying. The police later arrived and detained a number of the participants. Shortly later, they were freed after being charged with misdemeanor trespassing.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a raid on the residence of one of the campaigners on Wednesday. Neighbors stated that FBI officers entered the house of Chester Gallagher, who was out of state at the time, with their weapons drawn. Gallagher was discovered and ordered to surrender to the authorities. The FBI told the eleven other pro-life activists who attended the Carafem event the same thing.
According to The Blaze, multiple pro-life advocates have been prosecuted with “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act and committing FACE Act violations.”
The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, or FACE Act, was signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1994. At the time, its primary goal was to secure access to abortion “clinics” from demonstrators perceived a threat.

Seven of the activists face up to 11 years in prison and $250,000 in fines for “FACE Act violations.” Five could go to jail for a year and pay $10,000.
The DOJ has been on a tear of late against the pro-life movement. Last month the FBI sent dozens of agents to the Pennsylvania home of activist Mark Houck. He was taken away while his wife and children tearfully watched. Houck is also charged with violating the FACE Act. CONTINUE READING…
