A Philadelphia jury on Monday found pro-life activist Mark Houck not guilty on both federal charges in relation to an Oct. 13, 2021, altercation with an abortion clinic volunteer.
Houck faced 11 years in prison for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
The Department of Justice pursued charges against Houck, alleging that he “forcefully shoved” Bruce Love, a Planned Parenthood volunteer, in violation of the FACE Act.
Houck’s defense contended that Love had been “harassing” his son in the leadup to the altercation. The Thomas More Society, which represented Houck, celebrated the jury’s decision.
“Mark and his family are now free of the cloud that the Biden administration threw upon them,” Executive Vice President & Head of Litigation Peter Breen said after the verdict. “We took on Goliath — the full might of the United States government — and won.
The jury saw through and rejected the prosecution’s discriminatory case, which was harassment from day one.”
“This is a win for Mark and the entire pro-life movement. The Biden Department of Justice’s intimidation against pro-life people and people of faith has been put in its place,” he continued.
