The Sexual State

Raid on Pro-life Activist’s Home a Typical Sexual State Tactic

Ruth Institute President Dr Jennifer Roback Morse, PhD, condemned the arrest at gunpoint of Pennsylvania pro-life activist Mark Houck, saying, “This incident illustrates the Sexual State at work.”

“The power of the state has been captured by the Sexual Revolutionary ideologues,” Morse said.

“The Biden Administration has ignored arson and vandalism against churches and pro-life pregnancy centres, while terrorising a pro-life father for a year-old incident that had already been thrown out of court. The Sexual Revolutionaries are counting on the might of the State to prop up their irrational and inhumane ideology.”

Disproportionate Force

“It was like something out of a World War II movie, with the Gestapo sweeping down on the regime’s opponents. With guns drawn, an FBI SWAT team descended on the Houck home in an early-morning raid that terrified his wife and seven children.”

“What the Houck family experienced is typical of the Sexual State, which relies on violence and intimidation to enforce its agenda. The FBI could have simply asked Houck to surrender himself, which — as a law-abiding citizen — he most certainly would have done. Instead, the Bureau engaged in this drama meant to terrify a family and scare the pro-life community.”

Double Standards

Morse noted the disparity in treatment of opposing sides in the abortion debate.

“Churches and pro-life centres are vandalised, and Attorney General Merrick Garland yawns,” Morse charged.

“The homes of Supreme Court Justices are picketed, in clear violation of federal law, and the DOJ does nothing.”

The Houck arrest stems from an incident in which he and his 12-year-old son were part of a prayer vigil at a Philadelphia abortion clinic. When a clinic escort got in the face of the boy, shouting obscenities, Houck pushed him away. A civil suit by the “escort” was dismissed by a Philadelphia District Court.

“But that didn’t deter the FBI, which charged Houck with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.” Morse said.

“Garland’s DOJ has launched a full-scale attack on those the president calls advocates of ‘semi-fascism.’ This isn’t law enforcement or the equal administration of justice but a vendetta against the administration’s opponents.”

Fighting Back

Morse explained:

“The Sexual State isn’t reason or eloquence. It is brute force. It’s like a steamroller crushing everything in its path. We saw it in the way parents protesting the transgender indoctrination of their children were treated. And don’t forget, the DOJ investigated these school-committee protests as possible incidents of domestic terrorism.”

Morse predicted:

“The persecution of the Houck family will have the opposite of the intended effect. Opponents of the Sexual State will not be cowed or silenced.”
