FBI Rounds Up 11 Peaceful Pro-Life Advocates

Biden’s Department of Justice has procedurally hunted pro-life advocates for the last month. The FBI has taken up cases local courts dismissed in an effort to intimidate and persecute anyone who dares to protect children.

The latest instance involves a whopping 11 unjust arrests. The Justice Department is charging 11 pro-life advocates with violations of the FACE Act. The FACE Act (or Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act) essentially makes it illegal for anyone to present alternatives to women considering abortion and punishes anyone who would protect the unborn.

From LifeNews:

The 11 activists were charged with FACE Act violations stemming from their 2021 “blockade” of an abortion clinic in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. This blockade was peaceful, pro-life activist AJ Hurley told The Daily Signal on Wednesday evening.

Several of the activists were arrested on the day of the blockade, after reportedly successfully preventing abortions from taking place at the clinic for most of the day, but police reportedly released these activists later in the day after they posted bail for misdemeanor charges, the pro-life news outlet Live Action reported.

In a Wednesday press release, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee announced that Chester Gallagher, 73, of Lebanon, Tennessee; Heather Idoni, 58, of Michigan; Calvin Zastrow, 57, of Michigan; Caroline Davis, 24, of Michigan; Coleman Boyd, 51, of Bolton, Mississippi; Dennis Green, 56, of Cumberland, Virginia; and Paul Vaughn, 55, of Centerville, Tennessee, are charged with “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act, and committing FACE Act violations.”

Hurley, a pro-life activist who is friends with many of those charged on Wednesday, told The Daily Signal that the FBI raided Gallagher’s home on Wednesday morning with “guns drawn.” Hurley was not physically present but said he was alerted to the alleged raid by his friends.

“The FBI isn’t even performing the investigations,” said pro-life activist AJ Hurley to Live Action News. “The DOJ is doing their own investigations and using the FBI as their arm of that organization… Normally the FBI does an investigation, and if they find someone guilty of federal crimes, they issue warrants.” Instead, he says, “the DOJ is… sending local branches of the FBI with arrest warrants to be their strong arm.”

Hurley went on to say, “This is a new tactic the DOJ has been throwing at pro-lifers to see if the charges stick.”

DOJ published a press release that claims, “This case was investigated by the FBI and is being prosecuted by the Civil Rights Coordinator of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and trial Attorneys of the Department’s Civil Rights Division,” adding, “An indictment is merely an accusation. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”

The group was singing and praying when the police asked them to leave.

  1. I feel a whole lot safer now because my sidewalk won’t be blocked. NOT. ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL

  2. The FBI and in fact the entire DOJ is corrupt and is a threat to “We the People”.

    They have turned into jack booted thugs. Obama’s “Civilian Police Force”.

    Does anybody know what Hitler’s Gestapo was ??????????

  3. It’s a crime to loot, throw bricks through windows, march and scream all night, yet no charges, dems paid for anyone who ends up in jail for their agenda. But a peaceful protest calls for the goons coming out in full force??? I can’t wait for Election Day! OUT with all the demonrats! Drain the whole swamp!

  4. Let’s be clear, anyone that commits a federal crime, may potentially be arrested. That’s why we have laws. It appears like the eleven over stepped their protests and committed a violation of the law and should have been arrested. The FBI IS DOING THEIR RIGHTFUL JOB.

    1. They didn’t do their job for the other side that burned down many buildings, but that’s ok with you! This was one step closer to the election win, that’s all.

    2. On that note: It’s against a Federal Law to have ANY KIND of gathering of protest outside the home or courthouse of a federal judge. How many of the protesters were arrested outside Kavanaugh’s home?

    3. The Pro-life “civil disobedience” campaign intentionally follows Dr. King’s methods to the letter. Dr. King was repeatedly arrested, charged with misdemeanors and then let go. He never faced any long prison terms. So consider this: does that not mean that Bull Connor and his racist crackers were more tolerant of dissent than modern leftists are?

      No point in asking how a modern Leftist feels about this: they are incapable of feeling anything except for the self righteousness they bring to their causes and their hatred of anyone who darest to disagree with them.

  5. For over a year they have had enough on Hunter Biden With the gun, and human trafficking with the prostitutes. Election soon. One step closer now. Any Agent who goes through with this has now made a bad name for FBI. Never look for respect again. You could have respectfully resigned. You are not a representative of a class act.

  6. Where was the DOJ/FBI when radicals were burning buildings, blocking streets, performing acts of vandalism in Oregon, causing 20 or more deaths, etc.? It sounds like communists have taken over our government in a soft coup and are desperate to do as much evil as they can before Trump returns to remove them from office.

  7. Accusations of wrongdoing of people innocent til proven guilty do not justify FBI agents raids pointing long guns at family members and handcuffing accused hauling them to jail while arsonists and vandals whose pics are on security cameras taken by police destroying pregnancy resource centers are not apprehended. Biden is using DOJ to punish pro life advocates for Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade tactics autocrat dictators use. If you want more of the same don’t vote or if you do vote Democrat on Nov. 8. If you want law and order restored vote and vote for Republicans Nov. 8..

  8. The FBI is the Biden administration’s version of the “SS” going after people with conservative beliefs or anyone who doesn’t agree with them. This administration is the worst in history. Every time they open their mouth a lie comes out. I hope they don’t come after me for my thoughts.
