In a sign of the escalating aggression of the US government against pro-lifers, a well-known author and activist was arrested in an early morning raid at his home. According to LifeSite News, 48-year old Mark Houck, was arrested in front of his seven children and wife.

Ryan-Marie, who is a homeschooling mother, described how the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents swarmed their property with around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Having quickly surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

Before opening the door, she explained, her husband tried to calm them, saying, “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming,” she said.

Houck was charged by the feds for pushing a 72-year old abortion clinic escort who was screaming obscenities and anti-gay slurs at Houck’s 12-year old son. Houck’s wife said the old man was aggressive and was getting into her son’s “personal space” when Houck pushed the man away, causing the man to fall.
