Pro-Life Advocate Handed 57-Month Prison Sentence


The cries of American conservatives seem to be ringing true as the current Department of Justice stands accused of being a weaponized two-tiered system.

Activists and rioters for left-leaning causes seem to get little to no jail time, meanwhile pro-life advocates are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by the DOJ.

Such is the case for Lauren Handy and nine other supporters of preventing infanticide.

Handy and her fellow advocates held a “sit-in” at an abortion clinic in October 2020. As reported by CBN News, “They sang, prayed out loud, locked arms in front of the facility’s staff entrance and attached themselves to rope and chains to block doors in the building as a means to ‘delay the murder of kids.'”

Under the Biden DOJ, this is akin to treason against the state, and have charged the activists for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act with “conspiracy to interfere with civil rights.”

Nearly four years after the protest, Handy was sentenced to “57 months or five years in prison, plus three years supervision.”

Meanwhile, those who caused billions in damage during the riots of 2020, as well as anti-Israel agitators who are causing commencement ceremonies nationwide to be cancelled right now, roam free in the streets.

In Jesus’ own words: “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you,” (John 15:18).

Just prior to the court’s ruling, Handy released a statement informing those watching the case that she was “at peace with myself and my future.

“It has been close to nine months since I was abruptly ripped from my community,” she wrote. “This has led me to think long and hard about what to say about my sentencing today in federal court. Some drafts were angry and righteous while most were just a tear-stained longing for my loved ones back home. Yes, this time has been challenging but I refuse to be jaded. Why? Because life goes on… even in jail. So I might as well continue to love and cry and scream and dance. That is joy.”

Outrage rightfully ensued at the news of this harsh sentence for a non-violent and victimless protest.

“Today’s outrageous 57-month sentence for a progressive pro-life activist is a stark reminder: Biden’s DOJ is fully weaponized against pro-life American citizens, and they are using the FACE Act to do it,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said in a statement. “House Republicans should defund the DOJ weaponization, repeal the FACE Act, and stand up for the freedoms that we campaign on.”

Handy has sacrificed years of her own life in the hopes of saving unborn children from a gruesome fate, a fate that will undoubtedly bring God’s judgment upon the wicked who perform such acts.

In the wake of such an unjust ruling, many have begun to realize the Supreme Court’s decision to repeal Roe v. Wade was not the end of the abortion battle, but instead rallied the death-worshipping cultists who now seek to make it legal in every single state for every stage of pregnancy—paid for with your tax dollars.

Maybe this is the wake-up call American Christians need to get back in the fight against the murder of babies and erase one of this country’s greatest sins.

If not, no one should be shocked when God fully removes His hand of protection from us, and allows us to reap the rewards of our sinful nature.
