    Pro-lifer Cal Zastrow has been sentenced to six months in prison over his participation in a peaceful protest at a Tennessee abortion facility March 2021. Zastrow was sentenced by Judge Aleta Trauger on Wednesday in federal court in Nashville. Trauger sentenced him to six months in prison and three years of supervised release. She did not impose a fine on him. He must self report to prison by October 1. When given a chance to speak, Zastrow spoke of his Christian faith and how it drove him to advocate for unborn babies. He said he tried to live his life...

    Four more pro-life activists who were convicted of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and felony conspiracy charges received their sentencing last week for activism at a Tennessee abortion business. These sentences have thus far been much less harsh than the sentences imposed upon pro-lifers convicted of FACE Act and conspiracy charges for activism at a Washington, D.C., abortion facility. According to The Associated Press (AP), the activists were convicted in January for participating in a 2021 pro-life action at the Carafem abortion business in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Sentences ranged from six months in prison to...

    During a June 22 speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition, former President Donald Trump said that if elected to the presidency again, he would pardon the pro-life activists currently serving jail time for a sit-in style protest at an infamous late abortion facility in Washington, D.C. As reported by the Catholic News Agency, during his speech, Trump specifically mentioned one of the activists, 75-year-old Paulette Harlow, who was sentenced to 24 months in prison for conspiracy to violate civil rights and violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. Harlow had been on house arrest due...

    Nine young anti-abortion activists are risking arrest during a sit-in protest in support of nine pro-life inmates, and against the Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances Act (FACE Act). More than thirty activists from Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust will assemble on the corner of Pennsylvania and 10th NW, outside of the Department of Justice on Thursday, June 27th at 12 noon. They will call for the pardon and release of the nine anti-abortion political prisoners and the repeal of the FACE Act. Nine youths, representing the nine individuals who were politically targeted by the Biden DOJ, will sit down outside...

    Paulette Harlow, age 75, was sentenced in a Washington, D.C. federal court on the afternoon of May 31 in relation to her participation in an October 2020 rescue action at the Washington Surgi-Clinic abortion facility, run by notorious abortionist Cesare Santangelo. Unlike her co-defendants — Lauren Handy, John Hinshaw, William Goodman, Jonathan Darnel, Herb Geraghty, Jean Marshall, Joan Bell, and Heather Idoni — who were immediately incarcerated following their convictions, Harlow has been on house arrest due to ill health following her November 2023 conviction of so-called “conspiracy against rights” and FACE Act violations. In spite of Harlow’s poor health,...

    Former and potentially future President Donald Trump was found "guilty" last Thursday on 34 felony counts in a hush money "trial." It's not just Trump they're going after, though with a weaponized and politicized justice system. As we've been covering, President Joe Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) has been quite eager to prosecute prayerful pro-life activists using the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, including an elderly grandfather. Since then, more grandparents have been sentenced, including grandmothers in poor health. Late last month, 59-year-old Heather Idoni was sentenced to 24 years in prison. She's already been incarcerated for...

    A final pro-life activist was sentenced on Friday to years in prison for protesting at an abortion clinic infamous for late-term abortions in Washington, DC. Paulette Harlow, 75, was sentenced to 24 months in prison for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and “conspiracy against rights” for the 2020 protest at the Washington Surgi-Clinic, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). She is the ninth and final activist to be sentenced within the past few weeks for the protest. Unlike her co-defendants — who sat in jail for months awaiting sentencing — Harlow has been on...

    A group of lawmakers has sent a letter to United States Marshals Service (USMS) Director Ronald Davis and Federal Bureau of Prisons Director Colette Peters following troubling reports that several jailed pro-lifers are being denied necessary healthcare services while they are serving time in prison. The letter calls attention to the situation of pro-lifers Heather Idoni, 59, and Jean Marshall, 74. Both women have been convicted of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and “conspiracy against rights” for their involvement in blocking access to the abortion business of notorious abortionist Cesare Santangelo in October 2020.

    Lawmakers, legal experts, and analysts are decrying the nearly five-year prison sentence levied on a pro-life activist as an example of the weaponization of the federal government against citizens with disfavored political views. On Tuesday, pro-life activist Lauren Handy was sentenced to 57 months in prison for leading a group of other activists in blockading the entrance to a Washington, D.C. abortion facility in October 2020. Handy was prosecuted by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Civil Rights Division along with nine other co-defendants and became the first person ever to be sentenced for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic...

Marshall is one of several pro-lifers convicted over blocking access to a scandal-plagued late-term abortion facility in the nation’s capital, in a case criticized by pro-life leaders as an egregious example of Biden administration overreach.

    The Biden administration has thrown yet another pro-life American in prison for protesting abortion. Thanks to Joe Biden’s politicized Justice Department, pro-life advocate Herb Geraghty has been sentenced to 34 months in prison under the FACE Act just for engaging in a peaceful protest inside an abortion center. Like fellow pro-life advocate Lauren Handy, Darnel was found guilty on all counts the Biden administration brought against them for allegedly violating the FACE law. In a previous interview, Darnel called it an “honor” to be arrested for saving babies from abortions. “FACE is a crime, but it shouldn’t be a crime...

    Pro-life activist Lauren Handy was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison in a Washington, D.C., district court today for her role in organizing a “rescue” at a local abortion clinic. Attorneys from the Thomas More Society who are representing Handy said they will appeal her conviction. This comes nearly nine months after Handy and eight other pro-life activists were convicted on felony charges of conspiracy against rights and violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act for their involvement in an October 2020 rescue at the Washington Surgi-Clinic run by Dr. Cesare Santangelo.

    Operation Rescue ^ | April 24, 2024 | Anne Reed
    Operation Rescue previously reported on pro-lifers incarcerated for their efforts to save innocent children from being violently slaughtered at the hands of abortionists. The majority of the pro-lifers referenced participated in a rescue in October 2022 at Cesare Santangelo’s Washington Surg-Center. At this late-term killing center, perfectly formed, innocent babies are murdered through the ninth month of pregnancy, and evidence certainly suggests that babies are killed or left to die after being delivered alive. Santangelo readily admitted he would make no efforts to save a child born alive in an undercover investigation conducted by LiveAction in 2012. These convicted pro-lifers...
