BUCKS COUNTY, Penn. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Sham-Catholic Joe Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) is now targeting the homes of pro-life activists.

Early Friday morning, an armed SWAT team of around 25 FBI officers raided the Pennsylvania home of Mark Houck, a Catholic father of seven, and arrested him. 

Houck's wife, Ryan-Marie, recounted how their children were screaming while officers pounded on the door and then entered with rifles aimed throughout the home.

The officers stated "they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not," according to Mrs. Houck.

After she accused them of kidnapping her husband at gunpoint, the FBI agents showed her the first page of the arrest warrant. The document listed Houck as supposedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, or FACE Act.

Hostile Leftist Instigator

Last year, while sidewalk counseling with his son, Houck encountered a hostile pro-abortion activist. On multiple occasions, the pro-abort, who was in his 70s, would verbally harass Houck's son, who was 12 at the time. Ryan-Marie noted many of the insults were too crude and disgusting to recount.

Finally, when the pro-death activist came into the boy's personal space outside a Planned Parenthood abortuary, Houck pushed the man away, who then fell. The pro-abort sued Houck, despite sustaining no injuries.

The kids were all just screaming.

The ensuing FACE violation charge was thrown out earlier this year by the District Court in Philadelphia. But Biden's woke DOJ — led by Merrick Garland — has picked up on the charge and is accusing Houck of attacking a patient escort.

Family Traumatized

Due to the armed home raid and arrest of her husband, Ryan-Marie noted her children are greatly distressed: "I don't really know what's going to come of it when you see guns pointed at your dad and your mom in your house when you first wake up in the morning. The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic."

Mark allegedly pleaded with agents who were yelling and pounding on his door, "Please, I'm going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house."

His wife further revealed, amidst the screams of Houck's children, the agents "looked pretty ashamed at what had just happened."

The DOJ, however, has seemingly turned a blind eye to an overwhelming amount of leftist violence.

In addition to his pro-life work, Houck is the president and founder of The King's Men, a group that, worldwide, strives to promote virtue and to help victims of pornography heal.

DOJ's Double Standard

Increasingly, Biden's DOJ has been targeting political opponents who hold religious and conservative values. Most prominently, Biden's forces stormed President Donald Trump's Florida home. In recent years, the FBI has also been arresting pro-life activists as well as parents pushing back against public schools over issues such as critical race theory (CRT) or mask mandates.

The DOJ, however, has seemingly turned a blind eye to an overwhelming amount of leftist violence. The fiery nationwide protests following George Floyd's death garnered no harsh crackdown from the FBI.

Similarly, Biden's administration has taken no action against the leftist radicals who are firebombing dozens of pro-life pregnancy centers across the country.

Instead, Mark Houck is arrested and could face up to 11 years in prison and fines of up to $350,000.

A fundraiser has been started for the family.
