DOJ, Lawless Pro-Abortion Democrats Must Be Held Accountable
Washington, D.C. – Another pro-life activist has had his home raided by armed Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, and 11 pro-life activists altogether have been indicted for alleged violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act in the Biden-Harris administration’s latest attempt to silence and intimidate pro-life Americans.
SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser condemned the Biden-Harris administration, saying:
“We have seen enough of the Biden-Harris administration’s egregious abuse of the Justice Department. Pro-abortion Democrats will stop at nothing to protect the abortion industry that spends millions to elect them, while demonizing pro-life advocates working to save lives and turning a blind eye to violence against them. Pregnancy centers have been firebombed, an elderly canvasser peacefully exercising her First Amendment rights was shot in the back, and the pro-life movement’s calls for equal justice under the law have been ignored. Still the FBI refuses to conduct a transparent investigation and state whether any arrests have been made in scores of attacks since the leak of the Dobbs decision. It is clear the administration has put a target on anyone who dares tell the truth that abortion takes the life of an innocent child.
“The stakes of the coming elections could not be higher. We will not be silent and will work tirelessly to elect pro-life leaders and take back Congress to put a stop to pro-abortion Democrats’ extreme and lawless agenda.”
SBA Pro-Life America has documented more than 80 incidents of violence, vandalism and intimidation directed toward pro-life individuals and organizations since the leak of a draft opinion in the Dobbs case. In June the group joined CatholicVote and over a dozen political organizations in sending a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding action. The group has called for a public account of DOJ’s response.
This election cycle, SBA Pro-Life America and its related entities plan to spend $78 million to protect life across America. This includes reaching eight million voters across battleground states – four million directly at their doors – to elect pro-life leaders across America and in D.C.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
