For 20 years, pro-life activist Mark Houck spent every Wednesday praying in front of a Philadelphia abortion center. He describes how all that changed when a mild shoving match led to a SWAT team of 25 federal agents raiding his home, arresting him in front of his family. He was acquitted of all charges and is now suing the FBI & DOJ. 40 Days for Life is representing Houck and its CEO Shawn Carney says as a nation we basically embraced infanticide. Once Roe was overturned and the issue went back to the states, there’ve been positive steps forward. Heartbeat laws are now spreading across the country and getting wide support from liberal Democrats because they include financial support for women who choose life.
Houck says when you’re fighting evil, you want to have courage and unfortunately there’s not an awful lot of moral courage coming from the Church in the United States. Unfortunately you can’t erase 30 years of silence and too many Churches have been silent. Houck says both political parties need to think about the dignity of the unborn human person. We need to have the fundamental understanding that the dignity of a human person begins at the moment of conception. If we get the Life issue wrong, we’re not going to be right on other issues.
