The Obama Administration Targets Another Pro-Life Sidewalk Counselor

Meredith Parente peacefully distributes life saving literature to women outside of Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania Liberty Avenue. She now finds herself the subject of a lawsuit brought by the US Department of Justice.

Similar to David Hamilton, Scott Retta, and Mary Pine, she is being prosecuted under the federal FACE Act.  The Government is seeking to keep Ms. Parente an additional 25 feet away from the already existing 15 foot buffer zone.  If that’s not enough, they also want Ms. Parente to pay over $25,000 in damages and fines.

We will continue to report on the Obama administration’s egregious abuse of power under the FACE Act until there is an end the persecution of peaceful prolife sidewalk counselors.  If you want to help LLDF defend people like Ms. Parente, you can make a donation today.
