In one of the most ominous displays of the Biden administration’s hostility toward pro-life advocates, Lauren Handy, a courageous anti-abortion activist, has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison for protesting at the Washington Surgi-Clinic in D.C. On October 22, 2020, Handy, alongside fellow activists from the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), orchestrated a peaceful blockade to advocate for the lives of the unborn.

Handy, who had made an appointment at the clinic under a pseudonym, led a group that used chains, ropes, and furniture to block the doors, preventing access to the facility. Despite their peaceful intentions, they were met with severe legal repercussions under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act—a statute increasingly weaponized by leftists to silence conservative Christians challenging the abortion industry.

Handy and her co-defendants, John Hinshaw, Heather Idoni, William Goodman, and Herb Geraghty, were convicted of conspiracy against rights and FACE Act violations. These charges reflect the Biden administration’s aggressive stance against pro-life activism. Handy’s protests, aimed at protecting the unborn, have been harshly punished while leftist activists—whether it be climate protesters, BLM agitators, ANTIFA, or whatever—often face minimal consequences for illegal protests.

The charges against Handy include conspiracy against rights and violations of the FACE Act. These accusations are part of a broader strategy by the Biden DOJ to crush dissent against abortion—one of the most egregious practices in modern society. Handy’s so-called crime was merely to stand in the way of the entrance of a child-killing center, a peaceful demonstration aimed at saving lives. Yet, she is being treated as a criminal, while these leftist agitators receive mere slaps on the wrist if they face any consequences at all. The hypocrisy is palpable and disturbing.

Standing for life is not just a right—it’s a Christian duty. We are called to proclaim the truth of the gospel and stand against the systematic slaughter of the unborn. Handy’s actions were motivated by this deep conviction. Yet, the left is determined to deaden their consciences by silencing voices like hers. This persecution of Christian activists is a clear sign that the Biden administration is more interested in protecting the abortion industry than upholding justice and is meant as a scare and a dare to others wishing to stand up for life.

The sentencing of Lauren Handy is a sobering reminder of the lengths to which the left will go to silence Christians and is an urgent call for believers to remain steadfast in proclaiming the truth and defending the most vulnerable among us. The harrowing and inescapable call from God to repent and believe will not be silenced, no matter how desperately the left tries to mute it. We must continue to stand for life and truth, regardless of the cost.
