Pro-Life: Support the Houck Family

Campaign Created by: Joe & Ashley Garecht

The funds from this campaign will be received by Ryan-Marie Houck.

Goal: USD $425,000
Raised: USD $ 412,609

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.

Dear Friends,

On behalf of my wife and children, I would just like to extend a continued thanks for all your support of my family.  We are so blessed by your generosity.  We are continuing to stay the course with our battle against the tyranny of Planned Parenthood and the overreach of our government.  I will be testifying before Congress soon!  Please keep us in your prayers as we seek justice and accountability from those who sought to terrorize, intimidate, humiliate and scare pro-life America.

Your brother in Christ,

Mark Houck
