Two Abortion Activists Finally Arrested for Attacking Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers, Face 12 Years in Prison


Leading up to and following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade, in the Dobbs decision, pro-abortion activists have pressured district attorneys and petitioned the DOJ to prosecute those affiliated with pro-life centers and anyone who protests outside abortion clinics.

The pro-abortion Biden administration’s prosecution of a pro-life father begins in federal court in Philadelphia next week. Mark Houck faces 11 years in prison and fines for peacefully protesting abortion.

After slow-walking their investigation into those who targeted pro-life centers, The Justice Department has finally arrested and indicted abortion activists in connection with other 250 cases of violence against churches and pregnancy centers.

Two Florida residents were indicted by a federal grand jury for spray-painting threats on pro-life pregnancy centers that provide women with abortion alternatives. The indictment, returned by a federal grand jury in the Middle District of Florida, alleges that Caleb Freestone, 27, (pictured) and Amber Smith-Stewart, 23, attacked multiple pro-life pregnancy centers in Florida.

Freestone and Smith-Stewart targeted pregnancy resource facilities and vandalized those facilities with spray-painted threats, including “If abortions aren’t safe then neither [sic] are you,” “YOUR TIME IS UP!!,” “WE’RE COMING for U,” and “We are everywhere,” at a reproductive health services facility in Winter Haven, Florida.

The indictment further alleges that facilities in Hollywood, Florida, and Hialeah, Florida, were also targeted.

The indictment also alleges that Freestone and Smith-Stewart violated the FACE Act by using threats of force to intimidate and interfere with the employees of a reproductive health services facility in Winter Haven because those employees were providing or seeking to provide reproductive health services.

In addition, the indictment further alleges that Freestone and Smith-Stewart violated the FACE Act by intentionally damaging and destroying the facility’s property because the facility provides reproductive health services.

The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act makes it a federal crime to use force with the intent to injure, intimidate and interfere with anyone trying to access either abortion at an abortion business or medical care at a pregnancy center.

If convicted of the offenses, Freestone and Smith-Stewart each face up to a maximum of 12 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fines of up to $350,000.

The attack is the latest in hundreds of crimes directed at pro-life advocates and churches in the past year. LifeNews, which kept track of the incidents, estimated an average of four per week in 2022.

Earlier this month, someone vandalized a pro-life billboard in Oregon, spray-painting the words “Kill them kids” across a baby’s face.

Another billboard was vandalized with a similar phrase last week, the words “Aborting children is cool” and “Kill babies” spray-painted in white across it, according to Prolife Across America.

After a leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling in May and then the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June, Americans saw a massive crime wave by abortion activists. At least ten arson attacks were linked to pro-abortion extremism, including the firebombing of CompassCare in Buffalo, New York.

In November, FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that most of the abortion-related attacks in the past year have targeted pro-life organizations. “Since the Dobbs decision, probably in the neighborhood of 70 percent of our abortion-related violence cases or threats cases are cases of violence or threats against … pro-life organizations,” he told a U.S. Senate committee.

Last week, the FBI offered reward money for information leading to arrests in many of the attacks.

In total, LifeNews counted about 250 attacks in 2022, including the shooting of an elderly pro-life woman in Michigan and an abortion activist who allegedly tried to burn a police officer with a makeshift flamethrower during a protest in Los Angeles.
