VIDEO: A woman was detained for praying close to an abortion clinic

Outside an abortion facility in the UK, a pro-life woman was detained.

She was accused of breaking the law by (disturbing) praying without even moving her lips.

Police are seen confronting Isabel Vaughan Spruce in a video posted on Twitter.

Spruce was standing quietly and not drawing attention to herself. Are you praying, the cops inquire.

She replies, “I might be praying in my head.”

She was then humiliatingly searched by the police, who also arrested her and transported her to a police station, where they questioned her and accused her of violating the Public Space Protection Order by praying in silence.

In four distinct instances, she is said to have prayed close to an abortion facility in Kings Norton, Birmingham.

“No citizen should be punished for engaging in lawful, nonviolent activities, including prayer.

Lois McLatchie, Scottish communications officer for ADF UK, said Isabel’s case “shows exactly how far the state can go if we do not vigilantly preserve fundamental rights and liberties.”

The arrest occurs amid concerns in the USA about a Department of Justice crackdown on pro-life activists there, including Mark Houck, a pro-life father who was detained for allegedly pushing a volunteer at an abortion facility who was reportedly bothering his son as they were praying outside the facility.

This year, the “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act” (FACE) has been violated by over 30 pro-life demonstrators, according to the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.

According to the Associate Attorney General’s statement earlier this month, the DOJ has been employing the FACE Act to respond to the Roe v. Wade decision.

The overturn of Roe v. Wade, according to associate attorney general Vanita Gupta, was a “devastating blow to women across the country” that eliminated “the constitutional right to abortion” and increased “the urgency” of the DOJ’s work, which includes “enforcing the FACE Act, to ensure continued lawful access to reproductive services.”

According to the FACE Act, “forceful threats, property destruction, and obstruction intended to prevent the provision of reproductive health care services are prohibited.”
