DOJ Charging Pro-Life Activists for Blocking Abortion Clinic But Ignore Those Who Vandalize Pregnancy Centers, Churches
“Something truly evil is happening at the DOJ.”
Greg Price is correct: “Something truly evil is happening at the DOJ.”
I’ve had difficulty keeping up with all the stories of abortion fanatics vandalizing pregnancy centers and churches since SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade.
They’re not protesting or blocking the centers. They are vandalizing and destroying property.
BREAKING: Somebody vandalized and allegedly threw Molotov cocktails into Wisconsin Family Action’s — an anti-abortion rights group — Madison office, writing w/ graffiti, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”

Instead, the DOJ charged 11 pro-lifers for blocking an abortion clinic…in 2021! From Live Action:
In early March of 2021, a group of individuals committed to saving the lives of preborn children visited the Carafem abortion facility in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, as part of a “rescue” — an event meant to reach women seeking abortion, to persuade them to choose life for their preborn children instead. Today, October 5, 2022, that event of more than a year ago culminated in a visit from the FBI to at least one of the activist’s homes. Other individuals, who either participated or were merely present at the facility that day, were ordered to report to their local authorities to be charged under the federal FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) Act along with charges of conspiracy.
The event in March 2021 was reportedly peaceful, with participants lining the inside hallway of a shared general medical office building which, in one area, houses the Carafem abortion facility. The rescuers who were gathered that day prayed and sang, and the event was nonviolent. Some recorded the events on video. Several participants were arrested by local police that day and were later released after posting bail for misdemeanor trespass charges. (Read more here and here.)
I’m shocked the DOJ didn’t charge them with domestic terrorism since the administration considers that the #1 threat to America. That’s why they’re targeting concerned parents at school board meetings.
The press release lists those facing charges:
Chester Gallagher, 73, of Lebanon, Tennessee; Heather Idoni, 58; Calvin Zastrow, 57; and Caroline Davis, 24; all of Michigan; Coleman Boyd, 51, of Bolton, Mississippi; Dennis Green, 56, of Cumberland, Virginia; and Paul Vaughn, 55, of Centerville, Tennessee.
The indictment also charges the following individuals with committing FACE Act violations: Eva Edl, 87, of Aiken South Carolina; Eva Zastro, 24, of Dover, Arkansas; James Zastro, 25, of Eldon, Missouri; and Paul Place, 24, of Centerville, Tennessee. All defendants will have appearances scheduled in U.S. District Court in Nashville at a later date.
The DOJ alleges that “Chester Gallagher utilized social media to promote a series of anti-abortion events scheduled for March 4-7, 2021, in the Nashville area.” The other “co-conspirators” used Facebook to plan the blockade.
Man, Gallagher is such an extremist. He called the “blockade” a rescue! Then he had the nerve to live stream the event.
The DOJ also claims that the evil people “aided and abetted by one another, used force and physical obstruction to injure, intimidate, and interfere with employees of the clinic and a patient who was seeking reproductive health services.”
“Reproductive health services.”
But, um, the video shows a peaceful event. They’re praying and talking to people. HORRIFYING. At the beginning of the video, the group spoke to one woman. They were not rude or violent. When the lady didn’t respond to their pleas, they left her alone. Instead, they offered to help the woman there to get an abortion. Compassion and understanding.
The abortion worker was obsessed with the people not wearing masks. *eye roll*
It also sounds like Gallagher referred to the doctor as a baby killer, not the mother.
The FBI reportedly arrived at Gallagher’s home with their “guns drawn” and went inside. Gallagher was not home.
Pro-life activist AJ Hurley told Live Action the FBI called the other people about the “arrest warrants and had to turn themselves in.”
Last month, almost 30 FBI agents arrested Mark Houck with their guns drawn in front of his wife and seven children. The DOJ also charged him with violating FACE. Like those in Tennessee, he politely spoke to women at abortion clinics about saving the life of their children.
Houck’s activism only caught the eyes of authorities when a volunteer abortion escort accosted Housck’s son!
In Michigan, a man is charged with shooting an elderly pro-life activist in the back as she handed out pro-life pamphlets.
CatholicVote released an ad in August targeting President Joe Biden and the DOJ for ignoring anti-Catholic violence.
At the time of publication, Catholic News Agency reported at least 93 attacks against Catholic churches, schools, pro-life organizations, and pregnancy centers.
Not ONE peep from the DOJ. They have done nothing even though a pregnancy clinic director said they had to hire more security and install bullet-proof walls. This is a pregnancy center that offers abortion counseling.
Yes, if the pregnancy center is not affiliated with a religion, it usually offers abortion counseling. Not necessarily abortions, but counseling and resources. I still promote those centers because they provide counseling and resources for adopting and keeping the baby.
But you have lies spewing from the mouths of pro-abortion politicians like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who insists these pregnancy centers lie and deceive women.
The DOJ needs to investigate these attacks:
My wife works at a pregnancy center in Denton, TX. It was vandalized last night. Please pray for the people who work there. They help women and their babies with anything from preborn to 3 years of age. They are beautiful people and don’t deserve this hate. #ProLife #Catholic pic.twitter.com/63BLvNDMkQ

Rev. James Harden is the CEO of a pro-life pregnancy center that was firebombed by radical leftists. He tells Tucker that he gave the FBI security footage of the act, they took it, have made no arrests, and refuse to give it back because it could "inspire right-wing terrorism." pic.twitter.com/kf6P6cXyf0
