American Women's clinic signToday in League HistoryMay 28, 1994—Just days after pro-abortion President Bill Clinton signs into law the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE), a group of over 100 defiant pro-lifers gather at notorious abortionist Jan Barton’s clinic on Chicago’s north side to pray, protest, and sidewalk counsel. FACE imposes harsh penalties, including jail time and up to $10,000 in fines, on pro-lifers accused of blocking a person from entering an abortion facility. Local television and and print news outlets cover the protest, and pro-lifers show that they will not be cowed by the FACE law: pro-life activism will continue at America’s abortuaries.
