Washington, D.C. – On May 31, 75-year-old Paulette Harlow was sentenced to two years in a federal prison for participating in a peaceful protest at the notorious late-term abortion facility, Washington Surgi-Clinic in Washington, D.C. These babies were murdered there (warning – graphic content).

For her participation in the protest at this murderous facility, she was convicted of violating the FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) Act and for Civil Rights Conspiracy. The federal FACE act was signed into law in 1994 by then President Bill Clinton. It prohibits the use of force, threats of force, or physical obstruction to interfere with abortion access.

Harlow is confined to a wheelchair and was previously under house arrest because of debilitating health conditions including diabetes, severe back pain, and Hashimoto’s disease. However, U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Colleen Kollar-Kotelly cruelly sentenced her to 24 long months of prison time. She has already served approximately nine months of the sentence while on house arrest.

Please pray for Harlow as she prepares to begin a long sentence alongside convicted criminals simply for acting on her convictions to peacefully rescue innocent human beings from being murdered.  Also, remember to pray for the other pro-lifers who have been unjustly convicted, sentenced, and imprisoned. You can access the status of each pro-life hero at Operation Rescue’s Prisoner’s for Christ landing page.   

“Biden’s so-called Department of ‘Justice’ is being used as a weapon to intimidate compassionate pro-lifers who are peaceably acting on their convictions to rescue innocent, vulnerable babies from imminent death,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is a absolute disgrace to see a kind soul like Paulette being so unjustly treated while violent criminals are released from jail with no bail — all to satisfy a disturbingly dark, political agenda.”
