Pro-Life Advocate Lauren Handy Sentenced to 57 Months in Prison: ‘Biden’s DOJ Is Fully Weaponized’

A pro-life activist found guilty of violating federal law for attempting to prevent late-term abortions of unborn babies at the D.C.-based Washington Surgi-Clinic facility has been sentenced to roughly five years in prison.

As CBN News reported, Lauren Handy and nine other pro-life activists held a sit-in protest at the facility in October of 2020. They sang, prayed out loud, locked arms in front of the facility's staff entrance, and attached themselves to rope and chains to block doors in the building as a means to "delay the murder of kids."

The group was charged last August by the Biden Justice Department with conspiracy to interfere with civil rights and violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.

Handy was formally sentenced Tuesday to 57 months or five years in prison, plus three years supervision, for her efforts to try to save the lives of preborn babies.

Before the ruling Handy released a statement saying she was "at peace with myself and my future."
