With the overturning of the abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade, leftists’ outrage intensifies. This has led to increasing attacks on churches and pro-life pregnancy centers.
The Supreme Court struck down a ruling calling abortion a constitutional right. However, before the ruling, someone leaked a draft of the Supreme Court’s opinion, which showed they would probably take on Roe v. Wade. This began the hysteria and caused pro-abortion agitators to target pro-life centers.
In one instance, the Life Choices pregnancy center in Longmont, Colorado, was set on fire and authorities were dispatched.
“The building sustained fire and heavy smoke damage,” police reported. “At the arrival of police and fire staff, the front of the property had been vandalized with black paint. This fire is being investigated as arson.”
The center’s doors were broken and the rioters spray-painted the building with words saying “if abortions aren’t safe neither are you” and “bans off our bodies.”
Another instance of the multiple attacks happened in Lynchburg, Virginia, where the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center was targeted. Again, the windows were smashed and spray-painted with similar messaging, “IF ABORTION AINT SAFE YOU AINT SAFE!”
An investigation is underway and security footage showed four people in this particular attack.

“There is no room for this in Virginia, breaking the law is unacceptable,” the state’s Governor Glenn Youngkin said. “This is not how we find common ground. Virginia State Police stands ready to support local law enforcement as they investigate.”

A church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was vandalized. St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Reston, Virginia, was graffitied and was subjected to arson. Trees of Life Pregnancy Center in Paso Robles, California, had its windows smashed and spray-painted with hateful messaging.
St. Patrick Parish in Philadelpia, served by @opeast, was vandalized last night.

Ironically, rioters in Portland, Oregon, attacked a pro-abortion center because they mistook it for a pro-life pregnancy center.
A historic church in Raleigh, West Virginia, was burned to the ground. Abortion antagonists marched the streets in Eugene, Oregon and injured officers tried to keep things under control.
The list of pro-life places being targeted keeps growing by the day and pro-abortion agitators are showing no signs of backing down on their attacks anytime soon.
