VIDEO of Cardinal Gerhard Müller of Germany's Statement of Support during Visit to Pro-Life Father of 7, Mark Houck who was Arrested by the FBI

Cardinal Gerhard Müller of Germany, served as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) from his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 until 2017. On October 12th, he visited the home and family of Mark Houck. Houck is a pro-life father, of seven children, who was arrested on September 23rd by several FBI agents at his home (see details of the incident below the video). The family lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA
Cardinal Muller said, persecution of the good people is always a sign  of the beginning of dictatorship and tyranny. We see this in all of the world but especially in  the beginning with Herod in the New Testament, but also now with Putin who is persecuting the brave  and good Ukranian people and all the children of the account of his will of power. But the United States has always had the  leadership for democracy and democracy doesn't work when there is no respect of basic rights of life and personal integrity of your body, and your Liberty. We are citizens  of the states and not serfs of some ideological leaders. We have bad experiences  with some leaders who who reject our own reason. The administration and government of democratic  states have to serve the people and not the other way around. Therefore I cannot accept the griefs of a peaceful father defending his son, defending the right of life of the babies,  is so mistreated. This is not acceptable and this is a scandal. They are making  America ridiculous in the eyes of society. 
Mr. Houck has entered a plea of not guilty to two violations of the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, of which he is accused. The court date is scheduled for January 24th, 2023 in Philadelphia.
Statement from the Houck Family's GiveSendGo Page:

At 7am on Friday, September 23, 20 SWAT team members burst into the home of Mark Houck, founder of The King's Men - an organization that forms men to act as leaders and protectors in their families and communities, especially in the fight to end abortion. These agents had guns drawn and shields up in the faces of Mark, his wife, and their seven young children. Mark was handcuffed in front of his family and arrested.

Mark's "crime" was protecting his son from an aggressive Planned Parenthood escort in downtown Philadelphia.

Last year, Mark and his son were praying in front of the PP at 12th and Locust. When one of the escorts began harassing Mark's son they walked down the street away from the entrance to the building. The escort followed them, and when he continued yelling at Mark's son, Mark pushed him away.

It's all on video.

But that hasn't stopped Planned Parenthood and the Biden Administration. With no prior warning, and in spite of the fact that Mark is represented by an attorney, Biden's Justice Department sent a fully armed SWAT team into a home full of young children at daybreak, to arrest a father for protecting his son.

Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion allies want to send a message of fear to the pro-life community of Pennsylvania. But we have a different message to share:

We will not back down, we will not stop fighting to protect the lives of Pennsylvania's unborn children, and we WILL NOT TOLERATE the harassment of our leaders by a corrupt and politicized justice system.  

Please help us now by supporting the Houck family with a donation of any amount. The next few days and weeks are unclear. Funds raised through this campaign will go to help the family with any necessary expenses.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Let's show the Houck family they are not alone, while we show Planned Parenthood and its militant pro-abortion allies that the pro-life community will not be silenced by fear and intimidation.
