Obama’s Justice Department wages war on pro-lifers

Justly regarded as the most aggressive abortion defender to ever occupy the White House, President Obama has spent two years prosecuting pro-life advocates, using the Department of Justice as his weapon.

This campaign is so legally groundless that a federal judge recently ordered the DOJ to pay $120,000 to one of its targets, a pro-lifer caught peaceably distributing anti-abortion literature outside a Florida abortion facility.


The judge found the DOJ’s case so meritless that he issued a summary judgment in Pine’s favor and late last month ordered the DOJ to pay $120,000 to Pine to cover her costs. “The Court is at a loss as to why the Government chose to prosecute this particular case in the first place,” he wrote in his judgment.

But the prosecution of Pine must be understood as part of a broader DOJ campaign against sidewalk counselors.


The Obama administration’s zeal for these prosecutions, despite the lack of evidence, suggests that when it comes to abortion, at least, this president has real, if extra-legal, convictions.
