TRANSCRIPT

The Biden administration is continuing to use the long arm of the law against the pro-life community.

Church Militant's Nick Wylie discusses the latest American indicted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for standing up for the unborn.

Herb Geraghty, executive director, Rehumanize International: "Over 96% of pregnant people who walk into a Planned Parenthood for pregnancy-related services walk out without their child."

On Friday, Herb Geraghty — an atheist — was indicted by the Department of Justice for his role in a Washington, D.C. abortion protest in October 2020.

The two charges against Geraghty are "conspiracy against rights and FACE Act offenses in connection with an alleged reproductive health care clinic blockade."

So far this year under the Biden administration, at least 22 citizens have been charged with violating the Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.

Geraghty and nine others allegedly forced their way into an abortion mill and blocked two doors with their bodies, as well as ropes and furniture. 

Mark Houck, Catholic speaker: "But fighting pornography, fighting the evils of abortion, defending traditional marriage, dealing with the crisis of masculinity in the Church, is not a pleasant experience."

Catholic speaker Mark Houck is another pro-life activist recently charged with violating the FACE Act after he protected his son from being harassed by a Planned Parenthood escort last year.

In 2021, 11 pro-lifers were charged for blocking an entrance to an abortion mill in Tennessee.

While the DOJ is busy attacking the pro-life community, it has yet to charge a single person for the attacks on pregnancy centers and churches following the Dobbs decision

According to a DOJ press release, if Geraghty is found guilty, he could face "a maximum of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $260,000."
