A local pro-life leader has claimed innocence after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder filed a lawsuit claiming that she violated federal law prohibiting individuals from blocking customers from entering abortion centers.

Filed in U.S. District Court on Wednesday, the lawsuit claims that Mary Susan Pine, 58, and another protester violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. The administration is seeking an injunction that would prevent Pine from entering any clinic driveway, and prevent any members of her pro-life group from blocking women from entering the abortion facility.

Pine, who says she has been witnessing outside the clinic for 20 years, told LifeSiteNews.com that she and her group F.A.C.E. Life are innocent of the charge.

“It was something to believe, because there’s no basis for it, so it was quite a surprise to say the least,” she said. “We don’t violate the FACE act.”
