There has been some good news:
Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck on Monday was found NOT GUILTY on both counts of federal charges.
Mark Houck was charged with two counts of violating the federal FACE Act for shoving a pro-abortion volunteer who threatened his son outside of Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia in 2021.
The FACE Act prohibits “violent, threatening, damaging, and obstructive conduct intended to injure, intimidate, or interfere with the right to seek, obtain, or provide reproductive health services.”
Mark Houck is a Catholic father of 7 children and often prays outside of abortion clinics.
That the myrmidons of the Omnipotent State should do their utmost to discourage pro-life sentiment is inarguable. That’s why they chose this method of taking Houck into custody:
Mark’s wife, Ryan-Marie Houck, shared about the events on September 23, 2022.
On that morning as the corrupt members of the FBI were banging on his door, Mark said to the agents:
Please, I have seven babies in the house, I’m going to open the door.”
The FBI then charged into their house with guns pointed at them and their children – their babies – and took their father away on bogus charges against the pro-life author.
If there’s a case in which any pro-abortion activist was treated in such a violent and threatening manner, I’m unaware of it. Indeed, given the way the regime has treated the 1/6/2021 protestors, I was surprised to learn that Houck was allowed bail.
You’re probably aware that a woman in Britain was arrested for praying silently across the street from an abortion clinic. I don’t know of any comparable case in these United States, but I’d be unsurprised by one. Abortion is the Left’s sacrament, and thou shalt not oppose the administration thereof by any means.
I know, I know: “And this, too, shall pass away.” But it’s taking one bloody long time to do so.
Yes, we rejoiced to hear this! I sure hope Houck is left alone after this. The jackbooted thugs have all sorts of ways around that pesky idea of “double jeopardy” though. This was already double jeopardy, since the locals had already found at the time of the incident that he did nothing wrong.
The video of the British woman’s arrest was absolutely absurd. But…a small silver lining…perhaps it means TPTB must recognize the power of prayer, mustn’t they, or else they wouldn’t have viewed her as a threat? [Secretly, of course. Heaven forbid God be acknowledged overtly. No, believers and their “sky fairy” must be mocked at every turn lest even one lost soul find true hope beyond the latest media narrative.]
