Pro-lifers have always known that protecting their beliefs in modern America wouldn’t be easy.
But recent events have caused members of the pro-life movement to become aware of just how targeted they are by the federal government.
And Joe Biden was grinning from ear to ear when he found out just how far the FBI has gone to attack pro-lifers.
In a shocking revelation, allegations have surfaced suggesting that at least one FBI field office monitored Catholics and those with pro-life viewpoints, shedding light on concerns raised by President Biden’s 2022 address in Philadelphia.
Rep. Jim Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, expressed his concerns about the FBI’s reported plan to monitor Catholics for suspected domestic terrorism, calling it an “attack on pro-life Catholics.”
The House Government Weaponization Committee disclosed that the FBI interviewed a priest and choir director, raising questions about the legitimacy of the memorandum that led the Feds to churches.
Jordan, who chairs both committees, had previously investigated the FBI’s potential categorization of some Catholics as potential domestic terrorists.
FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed that the memo was immediately rescinded and withdrawn once headquarters learned of it.
However, Jordan argued that the reported expansion of the issue suggests a more extensive problem, highlighting the case of a pro-life activist, Mark Houck, whose home was raided, and he was arrested outside a Philadelphia abortion clinic.
“When that [federal] case goes to court, Mark Houck wins,” Jordan emphasized, pointing out the absurdity of the situation.
The report released by Jordan’s committees details these incidents, revealing a concerning pattern of behavior.
Jordan criticized the FBI’s handling of Houck’s case, noting that Houck had offered to turn himself in but was met with an aggressive raid.
This, he argued, is not how justice should be administered in a country that values freedom.
Referring to President Biden’s speech in Philadelphia, Jordan raised concerns about the divisive rhetoric that labels pro-life and traditional Catholics as radicals and extremists.
Biden, in his speech, had accused Trump-supporting Republicans of representing an extremism that threatens the foundations of the republic.
“If you’re pro-life, if you’re a traditional Catholic, somehow you’re radical, somehow you’re an extremist,” Jordan remarked, expressing worry about the broader mindset prevalent in the Justice Department.
Jordan linked this mindset to the controversial categorization of parents attending school board meetings as extremists, emphasizing the alarming trend that traditional values and beliefs are being portrayed as threatening.
In the context of these allegations, Jordan questioned the FBI’s behavior and suggested that it adds weight to the argument against funding the relocation of the bureau to a new headquarters outside Washington, D.C.
The ongoing battle over the relocation site, currently proposed in Greenbelt, Maryland, is facing bipartisan scrutiny, with officials arguing that Springfield, Virginia, aligns better with the criteria for an FBI relocation site.
As concerns grow over potential overreach and monitoring of individuals based on their religious and pro-life beliefs, pro-life Americans are left wondering if their traditional values are under attack.
The alleged actions of the FBI raise questions about the balance between national security and protecting the fundamental values that have shaped the American way of life.
