At 7am on Friday, September 23, 20 SWAT team members burst into the home of Mark Houck, founder of The King's Men - an organization that forms men to act as leaders and protectors in their families and communities, especially in the fight to end abortion. These agents had guns drawn and shields up in the faces of Mark, his wife, and their seven young children. Mark was handcuffed in front of his family and arrested.
Mark's "crime" was protecting his son from an aggressive Planned Parenthood escort in downtown Philadelphia.
Last year, Mark and his son were praying in front of the PP at 12th and Locust. When one of the escorts began harassing Mark's son they walked down the street away from the entrance to the building. The escort followed them, and when he continued yelling at Mark's son, Mark pushed him away.
It's all on video.
But that hasn't stopped Planned Parenthood and the Biden Administration. With no prior warning, and in spite of the fact that Mark is represented by an attorney, Biden's Justice Department sent a fully armed SWAT team into a home full of young children at daybreak, to arrest a father for protecting his son.
Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion allies want to send a message of fear to the pro-life community of Pennsylvania. But we have a different message to share:
We will not back down, we will not stop fighting to protect the lives of Pennsylvania's unborn children, and we WILL NOT TOLERATE the harassment of our leaders by a corrupt and politicized justice system.
Please help us now by supporting the Houck family with a donation of any amount. The next few days and weeks are unclear. Funds raised through this campaign will go to help the family with any necessary expenses.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Let's show the Houck family they are not alone, while we show Planned Parenthood and its militant pro-abortion allies that the pro-life community will not be silenced by fear and intimidation.
