Dad Avoids Prison Sentence For Abortion Protest

Jul 9, 2024

Devout Christian father of 11, Paul Vaughn, avoided prison time in early July after violating a federal law against blocking access to abortion clinics.

Vaughn was sentenced to three years of supervised release by U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger, according to the Christian Post. The father was convicted in January of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act in 2021.

Vaughn was one of 11 people originally indicted for blocking the entrance to the Carafem Health Center Clinic in Tennessee in March 2021.

Who Else Has Faced The Law?

Eva Edl, Eva Zastrow, James Zastrow, and Paul Place were found guilty by a federal judge for protesting outside of the Carafem Health Center Clinic in March of 2021. The defendants now await sentencing, which could see them receive up to six months in prison, five years of supervised release, and be fined up to $10,000.
