Red Rose Rescuers "Guilty"-  But Sentence Suspended! -- and That's a Victory!

  Thy Defended the Unborn   -    No Jail, No Fines, No Probabtion!

The Red Rose Rescue bench trial of Fr. Fidelis Moscinski, CFR, and Will Goodman was heard on March 9, 2022 in DC Superior Court. The proceedings lasted between 10:45 AM and 1:15 PM.

Mr. Charles Burnham, pro-life defense attorney, offered a novel "defense of others" argument based upon case law in which a man was acquitted of murder in protecting a pregnant mother and her unborn baby.

Body camera footage from the police was used as exhibits by the prosecution. These videos showed Red Rose Rescuers Fr. Fidelis, Joan Mckee, and Will Goodman making impassioned pleas in defense of human life and authentic justice.

After closing arguments, the two pro-life defendants made compelling and poignant statements before the court. Mr. Goodman sought to bring the cries of the child in the womb into the courtroom, and Fr. Fidelis stated that no one has "lawful authority" to take the life of an innocent human being, and further, "everything said and done here today will be sifted before the Judgement Seat of God."

Sadly, the judge found both rescuers "guilty" of "unlawful entry into private property.

Both Fr. Fidelis and Goodman were given suspended sentences and so were not sent to jail. They intend to appeal this unfortunate verdict.

Earlier in the trial, the judge had allowed Mr. Burnham to enter his legal defense of others argument into the official court record. This will be the basis for the legal appeal.

Many thanks to all who showed up to show their support at the courtroom, those who went out today to pray at the abortion mills, and everyone who prayed for us and our attorney.

Please continue to pray for the judge, the two prosecutors, and their three witnesses.

Red Rose Rescue will be keeping you posted on the progress of the appeal efforts as they progress.

Please pray for this legal appeal being made on behalf of the mothers and their preborn children.

Thank you!!

On Jan. 30th a Red Rose Rescue occurred at the Silver Spring Gynecology &
Family Planning services abortion center in Silver Spring, MD, the first to take
place during the Biden presidency.

Four rescuers entered the abortion center at 9:30 am and they were able to stay in the clinic for
four hours! Eight women arrived for their scheduled abortions. Six women left the facility before
the abortionist arrived, one of whom was an Hispanic women who chose life for her baby.
Rescuer Matthew Connolly was in the stair wall on the clinic’s first floor and gave this women
pro-life literature. The woman entered the waiting room where rescuer Lauren Handy also gave
her a pro-life brochure.

Clinic staff ushered the women into the back room but she emerged shortly and spoke to Lauren
who asked her: “Have you decided to keep your baby?” The women said “Yes, Yes—keep my
baby” and placed her hand on her abdomen! Clinic staff, exhibiting frustration with the woman,
escorted her out of the clinic.

Indeed, the clinic staff, distracted, angry and confused by the presence of the Red Rose Rescuers,
caused five women to simply opt to leave the clinic—four of them had the roses given to them
by the rescuers.

Police did not arrive at the clinic for a full two hours and even then they were hesitant to arrest
the rescuers in the waiting room, Father Fidelis Moscinski, Lauren Handy and Jonathan Darnell.

Indeed, they begged the rescuers to leave, told them if they left, no charges would be filed, and
gave them extra time to consider the offers to vacate the clinic.

The rescuers told the police they could not leave the clinic while there were two women in the
back room who still planned to abort their children—and sadly they did abort their babies as the
abortionist arrived during the rescue. The rescuers
Finally, the officers could see that the
rescuers were committed to remain in the clinic and arrests commenced at 2:30pm—4 hours after
the rescue began. The rescuers were charged with misdemeanor counts of trespass, disorderly
conduct and conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct. No court date has yet been scheduled.

Sidewalk counselors were outside of the abortion center. A few others held pro-life signs and
others gathered to pray. A man who left the abortion facility told the pro-lifers on the sidewalk:
“That f***ing fetus is gone. They put it in the trash can and all that,” —seeming to approve of
such desecration. He later returned to the facility and left with the woman he’d dropped off
earlier in the day.
