Five pro-life leaders, who protested inside a D.C. abortion clinic, are facing over a decade in federal prison after a jury trial found the co-defendants guilty of violating a Clinton-era law that forbids interference with so-called “reproductive health care services.”

For forming a pro-life “blockade” on Oct. 22, 2020, that “obstruct[ed] access” to the Washington Surgi-Clinic (WSC), an abortion shop in the nation’s capital that advertises that babies “up to 27-plus weeks” of pregnancy are aborted there, Lauren Handy, Will Goodman, John Hinshaw, Heather Idoni, and Herb Geraghty were convicted last Tuesday on charges brought forth by Biden’s Justice Department: felony conspiracy against civil rights and Freedom of Access to Clinical Entrances (FACE) Act violations.

DOJ attorneys prosecuting the pro-life activists allege that the co-defendants “engaged in a conspiracy” by mobilizing on Facebook beforehand, an event that the mostly Christian “co-conspirators” organized as a faith-based “rescue” to save babies from being slaughtered. “In furtherance of the conspiracy,” Handy, Hinshaw, Idoni, Goodman, and Geraghty traveled to the District of Columbia, hailing from an assortment of northeast and midwestern states, to participate in the live-streamed protest.
