From the National Catholic Register (not a blanket endorsement of this website):

Six pro-life activists are on trial in Nashville, Tennessee, facing federal charges related to a 2021 blockade of a nearby abortion facility.

The blockade, documented in a March 5, 2021, video posted on Facebook, showed a large group of pro-life activists, ranging from elderly to young children, walking into an abortion business and blocking access to the door by sitting in front of it. 

The video shows pro-life activists singing Christian hymns and praying. Police can be seen demanding they leave the Carafem Health Center Clinic in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, and while some do, others refuse.

The federal government announced in October 2022 that it had charged 11 of the individuals under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. The FACE Act, which is the same law that pro-life father of seven Mark Houck was charged and acquitted under early last year, prohibits “violent, threatening, damaging, and obstructive conduct intended to injure, intimidate, or interfere with the right to seek, obtain, or provide reproductive health services.”

Seven of the 11 individuals were charged with an additional count of conspiracy against rights, which prohibits the violation of someone’s rights guaranteed to them by the U.S. Constitution.

The seven charged under the misdemeanor FACE Act charge and the felony charge of conspiracy against rights face a possible penalty if convicted of 11 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
