DOJ indicts Florida duo for threatening crisis pregnancy centers in wake of Dobbs decision overturning Roe
Suspects allegedly spray-painted threats on a facility in Winter Haven, Florida.

By Greg Wehner | Fox News

 Two Florida residents were indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday for attacks on crisis pregnancy resource centers, becoming the first of such indictments following the Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Caleb Freestone, 27, and Amber Smith-Stewart, 23, allegedly conspired to prevent reproductive health services facility employees at a clinic in Winter Haven, Florida from providing services, according to the indictment.

Both suspects are accused of targeting the pregnancy resource facility in Winter Haven and vandalizing it with spray-painted threats such as, "If abortions aren’t safe than niether [sic] are you," "YOUR TIME IS UP!!," "WE’RE COMING FOR U," and "We are everywhere."

Winter Haven was not the only clinic Freestone and Smith-Stewart targeted. In fact, the indictment alleges they also targeted facilities in Hollywood, Florida and Hialeah, Florida.

By spray-painting the threats, Freestone and Smith-Stewart violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances, or FACE, Act. President Bill Clinton signed the act in 1994 and prohibits the use of any type of force or intimidation against anyone seeking an abortion, anyone exercising their First Amendment right of religious freedom, or intentionally damaging or destroying a reproductive healthcare facility or place of worship.

No doubt they’ll get a sweetheart plea bargain, with only nominal punishment.
