FBI Searches Home of Pro-Life Advocate and Calls Others to Turn Themselves In

The FBI recently raided the home of a pro-life advocate in connection with a demonstration that was held in March 2021. Live Action reported that others who attended the event were also advised to turn themselves in to local authorities for possible charges.

It was akin to a raid in late September that the FBI conducted when they raided the home of pro-life author Mark Houck with guns drawn and took his possessions in the presence of his children as they screamed.

In this instance, pro-life advocate Chet Gallagher was the target. The difference being that he happened to not be in town at the time the incident occurred. The FBI began asking his neighbors questions in order to locate him.

In early March of 2021, a group of individuals committed to saving the lives of preborn children visited the Carafem abortion facility in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, as part of a “rescue” — an event meant to reach women seeking abortion, to persuade them to choose life for their preborn children instead. Today, October 5, 2022, that event of more than a year ago culminated in a visit from the FBI to at least one of the activist’s homes. Other individuals, who either participated or were merely present at the facility that day, were ordered to report to their local authorities to be charged under the federal FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) Act along with charges of conspiracy.

The event in March 2021 was reportedly peaceful, with participants lining the inside hallway of a shared general medical office building which, in one area, houses the Carafem abortion facility. The rescuers who were gathered that day prayed and sang, and the event was nonviolent. Some recorded the events on video. Several participants were arrested by local police that day and were later released after posting bail for misdemeanor trespass charges.

The FACE Act is unconstitutional, and the excessive power being used by the FBI could lead to it eventually making its way into the Supreme Court. Peaceful protests are peaceful. Even if authorities can remove individuals from protests, the idea that the DOJ could be able to respond with federal charges is a complete nonsense.

In this instance, it is uncertain if the FACE Act was violated, however. The report states that protesters were on the corridor of a shared medical facility which housed an abortion clinic. Did they actually block anyone from getting into the abortion facility? The footage of the protest shows protesters praying and singing without provoking or interfering with any other person.

It gets more serious, though. Instead of simply charging Gallegher with a violation of the FACE Act, which could lead to a year of jail time and fines for exercising his First Amendment right, the DOJ added conspiracy charges. That means he could be in prison for a period of 10 years. The DOJ is charging people now with conspiring to plan protests in support of life.

Of course, the DOJ and the FBI have not found any suspects in the numerous instances of pro-life groups being targeted since the Dobbs decision first came out. This is a war against only one side and is designed to encourage abortion by preventing regular Americans from being vocal and trying to convince women to take a stand for life. A pro-life advocate was killed in Michigan and the federal government showed zero interest.

Recently, Christopher Wray and Merrick Garland have been using their corrupt bureaucracies as enforcers of the pro-abortion left. The pro-life movement cannot give in against this attack. It would be disastrous.
