Eight Christians, Including David Benham, Arrested for Praying Outside Abortion Center, Trying to Save Babies

Pro-life Christian David Benham was arrested Saturday while praying outside an abortion facility in Charlotte, North Carolina….. Benham’s is not the first arrest in recent days. While abortion facilities in most states are allowed to remain open during the pandemic to abort unborn babies in elective procedures, pro-life advocates are being persecuted for standing outside trying to save them….

According to police, they issued 12 citations and arrested eight people who refused to leave. Police said those people were charged with violating emergency prohibitions/restrictions.

On Sunday, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a pro-life Republican from Texas, came to Benham’s defense and slammed his arrest as unconstitutional. Cruz said the pro-lifers were exercising their “core First Amendment rights” and were doing so peacefully and safely.

“Because elected Dems are pro-abortion, they are abusing their power—in a one-sided way—to silence pregnancy counselors,” Cruz wrote on Twitter.

John Snyder, a North Carolina attorney and legal analyst, told Spectrum News that he also believes the arrests were unconstitutional.
