    The Department of Justice announced on Friday that 75-year-old Paula Paulette Harlow was sentenced to two years in prison for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act by taking part in a "conspiracy" to block pregnant women from entering an abortion clinic in Washington, D.C.

    Harlow of Kingston, Massachusetts, was the final defendant to be sentenced in the DOJ's prosecution of nine other "co-conspirators," most of whom also received sentences of at least two years. Harlow's sentencing also comes months after The Daily Wire reported that six pro-life demonstrators were found guilty and face up to 10.5 years in prison after the Biden administration charged them over a peaceful protest at a Tennessee abortion facility in 2021.

    "According to the evidence, on October 22, 2020, [Lauren] Handy - along with her co-conspirators Jonathan Darnel, John Hinshaw, William Goodman, Jean Marshall, Joan Bell, Herb Geraghty, Heather Idoni, and Paula Harlow, among others - forcefully entered the clinic and set about blockading two clinic doors using their bodies, furniture, chains, and ropes. Once the blockade was established, they live-streamed their activities," the DOJ said. "The evidence also showed that the defendants violated the FACE Act by using a physical obstruction to injure, intimidate and interfere with the clinic's employees and a patient, because they were providing or obtaining reproductive health services."

    Handy, who was also recently sued by the Biden administration for violating the FACE Act at two abortion facilities in Ohio, was sentenced on May 14 to almost five years in prison and three years of supervised release for her role in the demonstration at the D.C. abortion clinic. Seventy-six-year-old Joan Bell was sentenced to 27 months in prison and Jean Marshall, 74, was also slapped with a two-year sentence.

    New Yorker Jay Smith, 34, was the only defendant to plead guilty in the trial and was sentenced to 10 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

    The D.C. abortion clinic demonstration was investigated by the FBI's Washington Field Office with help from the Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI's Pittsburgh Field Office, the DOJ said. President Joe Biden has come down hard on pro-life demonstrators during his first term in office while promising to defend abortion.

    The FACE Act has been used numerous times by Biden's DOJ to go after pro-lifers. The act was signed by President Bill Clinton 30 years ago, but has recently been scrutinized by some Republicans, such as Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who have called for the FACE Act to be repealed, arguing that it is being "weaponized against normal, everyday Americans across the political spectrum."

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.
