WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2023 /Standard Newswire/ -- Citizens for a Pro-life Society and the Christian Defense Coalition will hold the event on Thursday, August 24, at 1:00 PM.
The location will be at E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse located at 333 Constitution Avenue N.W., Washington, D.C.
Dr. Migliorino and Rev. Mahoney will be calling for the repeal of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) after the overturning of Roe v Wade and praying for justice.
Dr. Monica Migliorino Miller, Director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and Red Rose Rescuer sates;
"The pro-life movement cannot abandon these pro-lifers who defended unborn children who were scheduled for extermination.
"They are heroes--facing the most draconian court proceedings -- penalties up to 11 years in federal prison.
"By holding this prayer service, we are publicly showing them the support they deserve-- and we need to pray for them--and most importantly pray for justice to be done for the innocent unborn -- who even the judge in this case, said 'are nonpersons!'"
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, comments;
"We are gathering together to pray and speak about the injustice of a federal law which could send pro-life activists to federal prison for 11 years in their peaceful efforts to save innocent children from abortion violence.
"The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) must be immediately repealed as it establishes a 'two-tired' system of justice by seeking harsh federal prison sentences against the pro-life community based on their beliefs and not their actions. It is unconscionable for American citizens to be imprisoned 11 years for peacefully intervening to save lives while violent criminals receive much lighter sentences."
