As part of a “rescue” in March of 2021, a group of individuals committed to saving the lives of pre-born children visited the Carafem abortion center in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. This event was meant to reach women seeking abortions trying to persuade them to choose life for the reborn children instead. Although this event took place over a year ago, the FBI visited the homes of at least one of the activists.
Individuals who were present or participated in the movement that day were ordered to report to local authorities to be charged under the federal FACE Act along with conspiracy charges.
Participants lined the inside hallways of a general medical office building, where the Carafem abortion facility is located. Researchers gathered for the event where they prayed and sang. The event was declared to be nonviolent. Some of the events were recorded on the day of the protest. Several participants were arrested that day and were later released after posting bail for misdemeanor trespass charges.
AJ Hurley, a pro-life activist, spoke to Live Action News regarding activities of the FBI, stating that according to the neighbors of pro-life activist Chester Gallagher was out of state when guns were drawn by the FBI at his home.
