Woman sentenced to nearly 5 years in prison for trying to stop abortion in Washington

A pro-lifer, Lauren Handy, has been sentenced to nearly 5 years in prison for “blockading” a Washington abortion clinic in 2020.

After she was indicted, police said they found 5 fetuses in her Washinton home.

Why? The provenance of those 115 fetuses is bizarre: the group claims several activists (including Handy) encountered a driver from Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services loading biohazard boxes into his truck outside the Washington Surgi-Clinic in Foggy Bottom on 25th March. They say they convinced the driver to give them a box.

After issuing a substantial trigger warning, PAAU screened a video that purports to show activists using a kitchen knife to cut into a cardboard “Curtis Bay Energy” box with a biohazard label before discovering what they claim were the 115 fetuses, most at early stages of gestation. The group said a priest came to Handy’s apartment to name and bless the babies, holding a funeral mass before burying 110 of the fetuses in an unidentified “private cemetery.”

According to prosecutors, Handy instructed co-defendants to chain themselves together with locks and chains.

Handy and the other people she was with sang hymns and prayed, accusing the clinic of killing babies even after they were born.

The video below was clipped from a live stream, documenting the incident on October 22, 2020.

Handy was convicted of conspiracy against rights and violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

She was sentenced to 57 months in prison.
