The Biden administration has continued weaponizing the Department of Justice to target Conservatives and Trump supporters.
11 pro-life activists were charged with violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, a pro-abortion federal law.
The group of pro-lifers allegedly prevented one clinic employee and one patient from entering a Tennessee abortion mill.
Seven pro-lifers were charged with “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act.” Four others were also indicted for FACE Act violations.
The activists with the “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act” charges could receive fines up to $250,000 and face up to 11 years in prison.
The other four charged could face a year in prison and a $10,000 fine.
The FACE ACT interfered with employees attempting to enter abortion clinics a federal crime since “that person is a provider of reproductive health care.”
Prosecutors contest one of the activists, Chester Gallagher, said on a Facebook livestream that he and the activists with him are “willing to be incarcerated” if they can “rescue families from this place of destruction.”
As National File previously reported, these charges come weeks after the FBI carried out a SWAT-style raid on a pro-life activist in Pennsylvania over a FACE Act violation:
A high-profile pro-life author and activist were arrested after dozens of FBI agents surrounded his house in the Department of Justice’s latest SWAT raid on right-wing Americans.
Mark Houck is a father of seven children, a pro-life author, and a sidewalk counselor.
Around 7:00 AM on Friday, according to Houck’s wife Ryan-Marie, who homeschools the children, as many as 30 FBI agents surrounded their home with rifles ready to shoot and “started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”
Ryan-Marie said her husband attempted unsuccessfully to de-escalate the threatening agents, saying, “‘please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming.”
