Anti-abortion activists who conducted a rescue at a Washington, DC, late-term abortion facility in 2020 face up to a decade in federal prison each. You can write them letters and deposit money in their commissary accounts as they await sentencing.
'This conviction is blatant abuse of political power,' Concerned Women for America CEO Penny Nance said of the conviction of five pro-life activists who blocked access to a late-term abortion center in Washington, D.C.
Thomas More Society senior counsel Steve Crampton said the jury was forced to make its decision based on an evidentiary record that was 'very narrow and constrained' and said his firm plans 'to vigorously prosecute an appeal on numerous issues.'
In a statement to LifeSiteNews at the courthouse on Tuesday, defendant William Goodman urged his supporters 'to forgive the jury, the judge, and all those who witnessed against us, and to pray that they would see how God loves the gift of every human life.'
Pro-lifers rallied outside the district courthouse in Washington, D.C. on Thursday to pray for the five pro-life activists currently standing trial on federal charges for blocking access to a late-term abortion clinic.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C. on Tuesday sided with pro-lifers against the same district court in which the 10 advocates for the unborn are being prosecuted for FACE Act violations. The ruling could be good news for the anti-abortion activists, who face up to 11 years behind bars if convicted.
