Students for Life Action Will Score Rep. Chip Roy’s Call to End the Abuse of the FACE Act; a “Blunt Instrument in the Hands of a Weaponized Department of Justice”


“The Face Act has been a blunt instrument in the hands of a weaponized Department of Justice, used too often against peaceful pro-life advocates. Students for Life Action will score this effort to end a tool used for partisan attacks by a Biden Administration working hand in glove with Corporate Abortion’s leadership,” said Students for Life Action’s Kristan Hawkins.  

WASHINGTON D.C. (11-16-2023) – Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins sent a letter to members of the House, pledging to score a vote on the FACE Act Repeal Act of 2023 H.R. 5577 sponsored by Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX-21). 

In the key vote alert, Hawkins wrote: “In the First Amendment, our nation’s founders affirmed that freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of religion are all foundational rights, equipping citizens to peacefully engage in a free marketplace of ideas. Such liberties are under assault today. It has become a tactic of those who want a weaponized justice system, to pass laws that address not the conduct of people who reject peaceful exercise of their rights, but to attack the reasons for their actions and then to seize state and local legal cases, federalizing their prosecution. The tool for this legal abuse is the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, signed into law with much fanfare by then President Bill Clinton, who made it clear that the goal of the legislation was to single out actions that focused on abortion vendor operations. This abuse of prosecutorial pro-abortion aggression needs to come to an end.”
