Mark Houck endured a guns-drawn FBI raid and political prosecution for exercising his right to lawfully pray for an end to abortion...

...but after being exonerated by a federal jury, he's finally free to share the SHOCKING details of the Biden DOJ's attempt to put him in prison for a decade.

He joins this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast to discuss the raid, the trial, and his time in captivity:

Tune in (by audio or video) and hear:

  • How Mark was chained and shackled by federal law enforcement agents who were looking to intimidate pro-lifers everywhere;
  • The key piece of evidence...that got lost;
  • Why he plans to sue the FBI for violating his civil rights.

Fortunately, the system worked, and Mark is back on the sidewalks saving moms and babies from abortion!

Des Moines, Iowa

Kristi and Paula were wrapping up their vigil shift when a Liberian immigrant approached to tell them he agreed with their signs.

"Baby number two was a surprise, and friends encouraged the mother to have an abortion because they already had a very small child," explained Kristi, who leads the Des Moines campaign.

Years later, the couple's third child was in danger of abortion, but the couple chose life AGAIN in spite of the difficult circumstances.

"The father said 'no' to abortion because where he comes from you do not have abortion; you raise the child," Kristi shared. "He looked down and shook his head when he contemplated his children being aborted."

Teusaquillo, Colombia

Nobody enjoys running late, but an unborn baby in Teusaquillo will be forever grateful that the child's 18-year-old mother arrived late to her abortion appointment.

"After missing her appointment, she had to reschedule," said 40 Days for Life director of Latin American campaigns Lourdes Varela. "But a 40 Days for Life volunteer offered to take her to the pregnancy help center."

The young mom accepted the invitation, visited the pregnancy center, and chose life!

So the woman conceived and bore a son. And when she saw that he was a beautiful child, she hid him three months. But when she could no longer hide him, she took an ark of bulrushes for him, daubed it with asphalt and pitch, put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river’s bank.

--Exodus 2:3

Heavenly Father, you are the God of all comfort and the light yoke. Help us to share the good news of the Gospel and the gospel of life. Give us compassion for the weary, those without hope, living in fear.

Help us deliver Your Word in the right way, the right spirit, with compassion so women will put their trust in you and have their children adopted. To God be the glory! Amen.
