The Justice Department has charged yet another pro-life activist with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act—this time, an activist from the same pro-life group that discovered preemie-sized aborted babies’ remains outside a Washington, D.C., abortion clinic.

A D.C. federal grand jury’s two-count superseding indictment charged 25-year-old Herb Geraghty with conspiracy against rights and FACE Act offenses for blocking the entrance to an abortion clinic in October 2020, the Justice Department said in a release. The pro-life activists had blockaded the entrance to the abortion clinic, the D.C.-based Washington Surgi-Clinic, to “prevent women from entering the clinic to murder their children.”

“This is a clear abuse of power and a sign that the Biden administration is using the Department of Justice to attack political targets—particularly those of us who believe in the right to life for all human beings,” Geraghty, a member of the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising, told The Daily Signal.

Geraghty has “not yet” been arrested, the activist said, adding: “I am hoping they let me self-surrender, but no confirmation either way yet.”
