October 2020 reportedly saw the sentencing of a pro-life activist to more than four years in prison for her participation in a demonstration at an abortion facility in Washington, D.C.

Lauren Handy was sentenced to 57 months in prison and three years of supervised release following her conviction for conspiracy against rights and violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

The Biden administration prosecuted five pro-life advocates, including Handy, for their participation in a sit-in at the Washington Surgi-Clinic late-term abortion facility in Washington, D.C.

Protesters sang songs, prayed, locked arms in front of the facility’s staff entrance, and secured entrances within the structure with ropes and chains throughout the duration of the demonstration.

The Thomas More Society, which represented Handy (30 years old), vowed to appeal the sentence.

She received her sentence from U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, an appointee of Bill Clinton.

Herb Geraghty, 25, John Hinshaw, 67, Heather Idoni, 61, and William Goodman, 52, are the remaining convicted demonstrators.

Along with the others, Hinshaw received a 21-month prison sentence; their sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday.

As a result of their demonstration at an abortion facility in Tennessee, ten additional pro-life activists face incarceration; the Biden administration has added conspiracy against civil rights charges to FACE Act charges in order to impose harsher penalties on activists.
