BERWYN HEIGHTS, Maryland, November 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Lauren Handy, a Washington, D.C. area pro-life activist and founder of Mercy Missions, is asking for prayers after she was arrested today for peacefully protesting on public property.
Handy live-streamed her arrest on Facebook.
The video shows her explaining to officers that she is standing on public property and has verified this information, which is public record.
The officers said they didn't have sufficient proof that Handy was on public property. The officers said they will contact utility companies in order to verify Handy's assertion.
