Thomas More Society has lodged a last-ditch effort to have a political prisoner released from pre-trial confinement.

They announced the news on X (previously Twitter), writing, “Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has DENIED our emergency motion to release Lauren Handy from pre-sentencing detention.” The D.C. Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals has been notified of our urgent appeal. There’s more where that came from.”

When asked what the Thomas More Society would do if their appeal was denied, spokesman Thomas Ciesielka was vague. “Waiting on that decision,” he said to CNA on Friday morning.

Previously, the firm contended that because the FACE Act is not “categorically” a “crime of violence,” “more lenient provisions” of the United States statute should be applied when determining pre-sentencing detention parameters for Handy.

As the company stated, “there is no evidence that Ms. Handy poses a danger to the safety of any person or the community,” and she is not a flight risk.

Handy testified in court that she and the other defendants organized the roadblock because they saw recordings purporting to show doctors refusing to treat a baby who had survived an abortion.

After the verdict was announced, Martin Cannon, senior attorney of the Thomas More Society, claimed that Handy “was there to prevent these horrific live-birth abortions, which does not violate the FACE Act.”
