Trump Vows to Free Jailed Pro-Lifers if Re-Elected

( – If he wins reelection, former President Donald Trump is promising to free pro-lifers who have been “unjustly victimized” by the “weaponized” Department of Justice.

During his June 22 speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “2024 Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C., Trump promised that if he is re-elected, to “rapidly review the cases of every political prisoner,” to “get them out of the gulag” and back home with their families.

Trump specifically mentioned the case of Paulette “Paula” Harlow, 75, who was sentenced to two years in prison after she was found guilty of charges she violated the 1994 law Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and conspiracy against rights for blocking access to an abortion clinic in Washington, D.C. in October 2020. Her husband, John, requested Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly consider her age and reportedly declining health into consideration when issuing her sentence. Instead, Kollar-Kotelly told Harlow to “make every effort to remain alive…because that is part of the tenets of your religion.”

During his speech, Trump called Harlow a “good woman” and told her to “hold on” because “we’re going to get you out of there.” He noted she is “one of many peaceful pro-lifers who Joe Biden has rounded up,” adding that if he is re-elected, on day one, it would be rectified.

Harlow is one of over a dozen pro-life activists tried and convicted in 2024 by the Department of Justice on charges of violating the FACE Act, which makes it a federal crime to interfere with someone seeking to “obtain, or provide reproductive health services.”

Trump accused President Joe Biden of persecuting Catholics, noting that if he is re-elected, Trump said he would create a task force to combat anti-Christian bias and other forms of discrimination against Christians. Trump’s campaign press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, said Trump would “stand up for religious freedom.”

Dr. Ben Carson, Tulsi Gabbard, and New York Rep. Elise Stefanik also spoke at the conference.
