Pro-life protestor found not guilty by a jury of his peers

A pro-life dad who was arrested at gunpoint by the FBI has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers, The Blaze reports.

The Federal Justice Department had charged Mark Houck, 48, under the FACE act with trying to “injure, intimidate and interfere” with an individual who was working for a Planned Parenthood clinic.

The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act makes it illegal to interfere, intimidate or injure anyone seeking an abortion.

The charge arose after Houck pushed a 72-year-old man who was volunteering to escort people into the Planned Parenthood Elizabeth Blackwell Health Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in October 2021.

Houck admitted shoving the man, but said it had nothing to do with the man’s volunteer work with the clinic, but because the man had been harassing Houck’s 12-year-old son.

If found guilty under the FACE Act, Houck faced a potential 11-year sentence and a $350,000 fine.

Many believe the case was brought forth by the Federal Justice Department simply to intimidate pro-lifers and other people of faith. Houck was arrested and charged when an FBI swat team made up of 15-20 officers showed up at their rural home in September 2022.

In an interview with Fox News, Houck’s lawyer, Peter Breen, described the arrest as an “outrageous abuse of power.”
