FBI Releases Footage of Buffalo Pregnancy Center Firebombing After Nearly Five-Month Delay

The FBI has at long last released footage of the June firebomb attack of a pregnancy center in Buffalo, New York which it had previously withheld and failed to return to the pro-life facility for months.

The radical pro-abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge took responsibility for the June 7 attack on CompassCare Pregnancy Services. Still, no arrests have been made either in this case or any other of the over 150 such attacks this year.

The anarchist group has claimed in several web communiques that the attack and others like it are part of its broader violent campaign against pro-life groups and private pregnancy centers in the wake of a Supreme Court leak that revealed the Justices had planned to overturn Roe v. Wade, at one point declaring “open season” on its targets.

Yet last month, the FBI confirmed in a statement that they’ve yet to arrest any suspects.

And in September, CompassCare CEO, Rev. Jim Harden, accused the Amherst Police Department of failing to return video footage of the attack in a lawsuit, saying in a statement that “Our patience with the Amherst Police and FBI to make an arrest is at an end.”

This week, the bureau released what we can assume is the same video footage of the attack, seeking help from the public to identify the culprits and offering up to $25,000 for information “to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the arson,” according to a statement and reported by LifeSiteNews.

“This criminal act is a violation of Title 18 U.S.C. § 844(i), Destruction by Means of a Fire or Explosive, which carries a penalty of up to twenty (20) years in federal prison [and] potentially a violation of Title 18 U.S.C. § 248(a)(3), Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances,” the statement also noted.

Interestingly, over two dozen pro-life protesters have recently been arrested and charged with FACE Act violations for incidents involving non-violent pro-life activism in abortion clinics, even as those behind violent attacks on pregnancy centers remain at large.

So, it is understandable that Harden remains skeptical as to why the footage of the attack on CompassCare is being released now.

“The FBI posting comes less than a week after the midterm elections. Let’s not be too hasty to sing the praises of the FBI. This may be nothing more than an attempt to appear evenhanded,” he said in a statement posted to Twitter this week.

A separate tweet pointed to the FBI’s negligence at addressing the broader spate of violence against centers like his.

“If the FBI is serious about finding the perpetrators, they will offer a $25K reward for each of the 150 pro-life organizations that have been attacked—3.75 million dollars,” he noted.
