Even though pro-life Catholic leader Mark Houck had volunteered to surrender quietly, the FBI reportedly dispatched 25 to 30 armed agents to arrest him at his rural Pennsylvania home in the early hours of the previous week.
Peter Breen, Thomas More Foundation VP and Senior Counsel claim that Houck freely consented to surrender himself to authorities just three months ago.
“The Biden Department of Justice decided to make an unnecessary display of potentially lethal force by deploying twenty highly armed federal officers to the Houck home at daybreak this past Friday,” according to Breen, who spoke to Breitbart News. “At least five agents approached Mark in a threatening manner, held weapons at his head, and took him into custody in the presence of his wife and seven young kids, who were scared that their father and husband would be fatally shot right in front of them.”
He continued, “This action is being brought purely to scare Americans of religion and pro-lifers. We plan to show in court that Mark Houck is innocent of these unlawful charges.”
The King’s Men creator and leader Mark Houck was detained last Friday at his remote Pennsylvania residence on suspicion of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entryways (FACE) law while providing his regular sidewalk counselling services in front of an abortion clinic in 2021. The King’s Men is an organization devoted to assisting men in becoming better husbands, fathers, and leaders. Ryan-Marie, Houck’s wife, told LifeSiteNews that between 25 and 30 heavily armed Federal agents invaded their home early on Friday morning while the kids wailed in terror.
According to reports, Houck pushed a 72-year-old abortion activist who was accompanying women into a Family Planning facility during the event that reportedly violated the FACE Act. According to Houck’s family, the guy had been bullying his 12-year-old son.
According to media accounts, the escort needed “medical assistance” when Houck shoved him, however according to Brian Middleton, a representative for the Houck family, the escort only needed a band-aid and suffered no significant injuries. The official added that the Houck family is currently looking for video documentation of the incident. Although the escort issued a personal criminal complaint in Philadelphia local court, the case was purportedly dismissed in July and both Philadelphia officials and the state’s attorney refused to press charges against Houck.
