75-Year-Old Sentenced to 2 Years in Prison for Protesting Outside an Abortion Clinic

News & Politics

Paulette Harlow, 75, was arrested back in 2020 after praying outside of a Washington D.C. abortion clinic. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly sentenced Harlow on May 31, deciding that she deserves to sit in jail for two full years.

Harlow, visited the Washington Surgi-clinic with a group of other pro-lifers on Oct 22, 2020. She sat in a seat outside of the clinic doors where she sang hymns and prayed that babies would be saved from abortion.

Harlow was arrested along with eight other pro-lifers outside of the clinic and was convicted under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. The FACE Act prohibits “violent, threatening, damaging, and obstructive conduct intended to injure, intimidate, or interfere with the right to seek, obtain, or provide reproductive health services.”

Apparently praying and singing hymns is “violent” and “threatening.”

Reports indicate that Harlow’s husband “begged for mercy, expressing his fear that his wife would die alone in prison,” due to her health issues and her age. Judge Kollar-Kotelly couldn’t have seemed to care less when issuing a 24-month sentence. The judge actually asserted that perhaps Harlow would “make an effort to remain alive” since that’s a “tenet of [Harlow’s] religion.”

Other protestors who were at the Washington-Surgi clinic that day have also been charged and sentenced. On May 15, Lauren Handy, 30, was sentenced to 57 months in prison as well as three years probation after linking herself with her fellow pro-lifers at the clinic and singing hymns and praying for the babies and moms.

Other individuals sentenced include: Josh Darnel, 42, who filmed the blockade, was sentenced to 34 months in prison; Jean Marshall, 74, Harlow’s sister, was sentenced to 24 months; Heather Idoni, 59, similarly received 24 months and John Hinshaw, 69, William Goodman, 54, Joan Bell, 76, and Herb Geraghty all received 27 months.

Keep in mind that all these individuals are going to jail for praying for life while people who protest by becoming human roadblocks for PETA, Palestine, BLM, climate change or trans/queer crap are often celebrated instead of incarcerated.

It has become abundantly clear that the left has an agenda and now, even our justice system seems willing to assist them in reaching their goals.
