Pro-Abortion Terrorist Gets Lighter Sentence Than Pro-Life Activists

In late January, six pro-life activists were convicted on charges of violating the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, for blocking the entrance to an abortion facility in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee in 2021. The FACE Act, signed into law by President Bill Clinton, punishes “violent, threatening damaging, and obstructive conduct intended to injure, intimidate, or interfere with the right to seek, obtain, or provide” abortions. 

For their peaceful demonstration — that included hymns and prayer — the defendants each face a maximum sentence of more than a decade in prison and three years of supervised released, plus up to $260,000 in fines. 

On Wednesday, Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, a pro-abortion terrorist who firebombed the pro-life Wisconsin Family Action offices on Mother’s Day, 2022, was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison (minus time served) plus three years supervised release on just one count of malicious damage by fire or explosives of property used in interstate commerce.

U.S. District Court Judge William Conley, appointed to the Western Wisconsin District bench by President Barack Obama, handed down the sentence on a much lighter charge than the acts of conspiracy and domestic terrorism federal prosecutors say Roychowdhury engaged in. With good behavior and time served, the terrorist will serve but five years, according to legal experts.
