Pro-Life Ladies in Their Seventies are Convicted of ‘Conspiracy’ to Stop Abortions

The Justice Department has convicted a number of pro-life activists, including two women in their seventies, as part of a “conspiracy” to stop Americans from getting abortions.

The DOJ reported on the judicial development on Friday.

“A federal jury today convicted three defendants of both offenses in a two-count indictment charging them with federal civil rights offenses in connection with the October 22, 2020, invasion of a reproductive health care clinic in Washington, D.C. The defendants – Jonathan Darnel, 41, of Arlington, Va.; Jean Marshall, 73, of Kingston, Mass.; Joan Bell, 74, of Montague, NJ – were each convicted of a felony conspiracy against rights and a FACE Act offense,” the press statement read.

The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves and other justice department attorneys in Washington D.C. in conjunction with the FBI.

As the Justice department related, the defendants each face “up to a maximum of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $350,000.”

As the press statement adds, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who presided over the trial, ordered the defendants to be immediately detained, as required by statute, and the sentencing will be scheduled
