The wife of the pro-life activist who has been targeted by Biden’s Justice Department, Mark Houck, is now speaking out about her husband’s arrest, revealing harrowing details of that day, which includes her seeing at least 20 armed FBI agents on her property, along with more than a dozen vehicles.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has successfully weaponized the bureau, turning it into a tool used to intimidate anyone who is not on board with the progressive agenda. We’ve seen them attack Trump and those who support him and now this. It’s a display of power. Progressives are doing this out in the open because they want the dissenters to see what will happen if they continue to fight against them.
The Daily Wire reported, “The DOJ charged Houck over an incident that occurred last year involving his then-12-year-old son at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. The family says Houck, who is now facing 11 years behind bars and fines up to $350,000, was defending his child from a harassing pro-abortion activist.”
“They’re scared, there’s a lot of crying,” wife Ryan-Marie Houck, who has a total of seven children with her husband Mark, stated when speaking about the arrest.
“Ryan-Marie told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that, from her estimation, there could have been up to 30 armed feds at her home on Friday and at least 15 vehicles,” the report continued.
“It had to have been 20, 25, 30 — we have a large property, my entire front yard, you could barely see it,” the mom of seven recounted. “It was covered with at least 15 trucks and cars,” she said.
That seems a bit excessive, wouldn’t you say? Why in the world would the FBI need to have that many individuals on the property with that many vehicles to arrest one person? Other than to make such a display a show of force meant to strike fear and terror into the hearts of patriots across the country?
Ryan-Marie then stated their kids have already been receiving counseling over the ordeal, which is something she plans to continue for the foreseeable future.
Joining Ryan-Marie on the program was Thomas More Society Vice President Peter Breen, who represented the Houcks with the legal case.
“The Philadelphia DA refused to press charges — and he’s not a friend of pro-life, he’s a [George] Soros ally,” Breen went on to explain. “Then the alleged victim filed a private criminal complaint, which eventually the local courts threw out because the guy couldn’t be bothered to show up to the hearings.”
The attorney said that is where the handling of the situation should have stopped. However, he claims the DOJ decided to target Houck in order to send a message to other pro-lifers in the country, saying, “They took an innocent man and made an example out of him.”
“We offered to bring [Houck] in — we didn’t get a response,” he stated, going on to add that the arrest was “outrageous and uncalled for.”
“And what’s clear from the Department of Justice at its highest levels, which is directing this case, [is] that they are trying to send a message to pro-life and people of faith: ‘Don’t mess with us,’” the attorney remarked. “They want to intimidate — they want to cause good people like Mark to stop praying and counseling at the abortion clinics of our country. And that’s not going to happen.”

This is absolutely deplorable. Pro-lifers need to make sure they understand their legal rights and how to exercise them correctly. They need to fight this kind of persecution legally, to the best of their ability, out in the public, to return a message to those trying to intimidate them into silence. Let them know you won’t take this sort of thing, that you’ll strike back, legally, the right way.
