This morning, the FBI raided the home of Mark Houck. It was terrifying as the agency continued its power-grabbing agenda to target those who stand against the Biden administration.
According to the FBI, Houck was indicted for violating the FACE Act. The FACE Act, passed in 1994, amends the Federal criminal code to prohibit: (1) intentionally injuring, intimidating, or interfering with, or attempting to injure, intimidate, or interfere, any person by force, threat of force, or physical obstruction because that person is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from, obtaining or providing reproductive health services. He did nothing wrong.
LET’S SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Last fall, Houck and his son were covering a shift outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City Philadelphia during the 40 Days for Life campaign when an escort, identified as Bruce Love of Norristown, was harassing Mark’s seven-year-old son. Mark intervened as Bruce faked a violent altercation between each other. His son was traumatized by Bruce’s action as they served him with a harassment complaint to the Philadelphia Police Department. The facility dismissed Bruce, yet he was allowed to volunteer at Philadelphia Women’s Center. Bruce failed to show up for court.
Today’s actions by the FBI show that it is an overreach and power grab. Even Josh Shapiro and Merrick Garland would do anything to silence pro-lifers even before President Biden’s tyrannical speech he gave in Philadelphia earlier this month. This is only the beginning as the tide has turned. There will be many more who will face the same persecution as Mark did. We must be vigilant. We must double our efforts. We must not give up or give in to the progressive mob.
We must stand together and shout from the mountaintops about our pro-life convictions. We must not be afraid to stand up for what is true, good, and beautiful. We must protect what matters the most and that is family, marriage, and children (born and unborn).
They’ve just begun. They will lose this war.
Stand firm. Soldier on. Pray without ceasing.
