FBI raid on pro-life protestor draws outcry

The FBI is disputing published accounts of a “SWAT” raid on a pro-life Catholic family’s home in Pennsylvania last week. The circumstances of the Sept. 23 arrest of Mark Houck, father of seven, have led to a public outcry about what many view as an unnecessarily aggressive show of force. According to Houck’s wife, the FBI said they were going to break in if Mr. Houck didn’t open the front door. “And then they had about five guns pointed at my husband, myself and basically at my kids.” Houck is charged with pushing an abortion clinic volunteer.
