Pro-lifers face lengthy prison terms in Tennessee case
January 31, 2024
CWN Editor's Note: Six pro-life activists face prison sentences of up to 11 years after a Tennessee judge found them guilty of violating the FACE act in a peaceful 2021 protest outside an abortion clinic.
Police in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, where the clinic was located, reported that the pro-lifers were not threatening, but said they were disrupting business and arrested them when they refused to leave. They were charged with a “conspiracy against rights.”
The Thomas More Society, a religious-freedom law firm that represented the defendants, immediately announced plans to appeal the verdict.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
