Critics Accuse Biden DOJ Of Selective Enforcement In Pro-Life Activist’s Case

The case of Heather Idoni a 61-year-old pro-life grandmother from Linden Michigan has sparked controversy over the Biden administration’s aggressive prosecution of pro-life activists using the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. Idoni along with several others is accused of blocking access to a Washington D.C. abortion clinic in 2020.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) claims that the group used their bodies furniture chains and ropes to obstruct entrance to the facility while livestreaming their actions on social media. Idoni now faces felony conspiracy charges that could result in up to 50 years in federal prison and over $1 million in fines.

Reports from LifeSiteNews reveal that Idoni has been subjected to 22 days of solitary confinement and was paraded in court in shackles drawing criticism from various quarters. Idoni’s account provided during a phone interview from jail paints a grim picture of her detention claiming sporadic and brief periods outside her cell and lights kept on continually.

Critics argue that the DOJ’s handling of various groups demonstrates selective enforcement based on political expediency highlighting the contrast in their approach to other forms of protest especially those involving violence. Since the reversal of Roe v. Wade the FACE Act has been invoked 130 times against pro-life activists compared to only three times against pro-abortion protesters since the law’s inception.

The conservative community and pro-life advocates see Idoni’s treatment as part of a broader pattern of the Biden DOJ’s aggressive stance against pro-life individuals viewing her case as emblematic of perceived bias in enforcement decisions.
