Three years ago, several pro-life demonstrators engaged in a classic 1960s civil rights tactic and staged a sit-in at a notorious Washington, D.C., abortion clinic.

Five were just convicted of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, and are awaiting sentencing, which could be a decade in prison and $300,000 in fines. Three more pro-life activists are on trial now.

Jonathan Darnel, whose trial began this week, told reporters that there are several lessons pro-life and Christian Americans could learn from his ordeal.

One lesson would be a terrible mistake. Darnel said we could conclude that “It doesn’t pay to be a hero,” and that “crossing the [clinic’s] property line is a stupid act, and if you want to avoid the wrath of the U.S. government, you best keep your head down and let the baby killers ply their trade in peace.”

Then he added, “The U.S. government must be scared silly of citizens who they can’t frighten into submission.”

Darnel went on to suggest that every abortion clinic in America could be quickly shut down if tens of thousands of pro-life citizens in dozens of cities engaged in peaceful sit-ins.

Unequal Justice

There is another lesson shouting at us in these trials: The neo-Marxist left is imposing a system of unequal justice on us day-by-day that most people don’t realize or aren’t willing to confront.

Not far from that D.C. abortion clinic are the neighborhoods where conservative Supreme Court justices live. As you know, there have been massive protests outside the justices’ homes to intimidate them.

The reason for the protests is that those justices ended the fiction that abortion is in our Constitution. The Biden Administration and local left-wing officials won’t prosecute those demonstrators who are also violating federal law.

But the Biden Administration and local left-wing officials are bringing the full weight of the law down on pro-life activists.

The Feds are trying to crush pro-life dissent. Meanwhile, some woke churches demand we submit to these biased government officials. And just a few miles away, that same government is protecting pro-abortion demonstrators harassing Supreme Court justices.

Here’s the bottom line: There is insufficient outrage by conservatives over this obvious double standard. Too few of our elected officials are willing to push the envelope in response to the left’s abuses of power.

The governor of New Mexico thinks she can cancel the Constitution, while the decent governor of Texas struggles to stop the transformation of America that is taking place every day as Joe Biden allows thousands of foreign nationals pour into our country.

If we continue to follow this script, we will hit a tipping point where it becomes impossible to save our country from the neo-Marxist left.
