Biden’s DOJ jails conservatives in unprecedented miscarriage of justice

This country has had a two-tiered justice system for some time now. It doesn’t matter what crime you commit, it matters who you know.

And now Biden’s DOJ jailed conservatives in an unprecedented miscarriage of justice.

Not long ago, Americans could depend on the legal system being blind to the ever changing landscape of politics.

If you committed a crime, you were given a fair trial and sentenced in line with what you did.

Evermore, that standard is changing. If you are on the “right side” of the aisle, you may just get favorable treatment.

Lauren Handy, a pro-life advocate, has been sentenced to 57 months in jail and three years of supervision for protesting the death of late-term unborn children at a known abortion clinic in Washington, D.C.

Handy’s sentencing was decided on May 14 by Senior Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Handy’s Thomas More Society attorneys expressed their opposition to the nearly five-year prison term and said in a news release that they would be working to appeal the decision.

Thomas More Society Senior Counsel Steve Crampton stated that the “57-month sentence is a miscarriage of justice, plain and simple.”

He went on to say, “Ms. Handy should have been shown the same mercy that she has herself shown to countless many downtrodden throughout her young life.”

In response to the sentencing, Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins chastised the Department of Justice for being biased toward pro-life advocates.

“After weeks of watching students & pro-terrorist activists seize and barricade themselves inside school buildings, and years of watching progressives allow squatters to take private property, a woman faces years in prison for blocking an abortion vendor door? Justice is not blind in Biden’s America – it’s biased,” Hawkins wrote. “The chaos is the point – they want this kind of anarchy.”

Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) Founder Terrisa Bukovinac also criticized the bias against pro-life advocates: “No other social justice movement in our nation has activists subject to years in federal prison for nonviolent resistance. This blatant viewpoint discrimination has incalculable consequences for babies, their parents, those who defend them.”

The co-defendants are accused of both breaching the FACE Act and “conspiracy against rights.”

Handy and her co-defendants discovered the bodies of five later-term aborted babies outside the Washington Surgi-Clinic, which was run by Cesare Santangelo, a late-term abortionist. Following this upsetting finding, Handy organized a nonviolent demonstration that prevented entry to the clinic in October 2020.

According to a news release from the Thomas More Society, the discovery of these dead children, known as the “D.C. Five,” has highlighted the truth of Ms. Handy’s concerns that abortionist Cesare Santangelo has more than likely been violating the Born Alive Infants Protection Act by reportedly refusing to provide life-saving care to infants born alive as a result of an attempted abortion.

On May 14, Kollar-Kotely condemned Handy’s co-defendant, 69-year-old John Hinshaw, to 12 months in prison. Most of the remaining sentences will be decided later this week.

Eight co-defendants have already spent nine months in prison, and one is on house arrest. Handy’s time served is included in the 57-month sentence.

Martin Cannon, Senior Counsel for the Thomas More Society, stated that Handy and her co-defendants “conspired to be peaceful,” protesting nonviolently.

“For her efforts to peacefully protect the lives of innocent preborn human beings, Ms. Handy deserves thanks, not a gut-wrenching prison sentence,” Cannon added.

“We will vigorously pursue an appeal of Ms. Handy’s conviction and attack the root cause of this injustice, that is, the FACE Act—which we believe is unconstitutional and should never again be used to persecute peaceful pro-lifers.”
