‘Political Prosecution’: Pro-Life Activist Mark Houck Fights Back, Pleads Not Guilty To Federal Charges After Controversial Arrest

Pro-life activist and Catholic father of seven Mark Houck is fighting back after he was arrested by some 20 armed FBI agents at his Pennsylvania home early Friday morning in front of his children and wife.

The Department of Justice is targeting Houck, who leads a nonprofit group that provides sidewalk counseling at abortion clinics in Philadelphia, over an incident 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 son from a harassing pro-abortion activist.

Houck’s attorney is slamming the targeting as blatant “political prosecution,” and the Catholic father has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
