Pro-Abortion Protests Turn Violent With Arson Attack, Vandalism, and Disrupted Church Services


Mother’s Day weekend turned violent for many who are outraged over the possibility that Roe v. Wade could be overturned.

In Wisconsin, the offices of a pro-life group were vandalized with pro-abortion messages and Molotov cocktails as several churches and crisis pregnancy centers across the country were also targeted.

Yet the arson attack on Wisconsin Family Action is not being investigated as terrorism, NTD reported.

On early Sunday morning, first responders were called to the pro-life group’s offices, where a passerby had spotted flames.

The facilities were spray-painted with the threatening message, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either” and investigators found the remnants of homemade incendiary devices inside the building. Yet police officials said on Monday that while the investigation is ongoing, it is not being treated as an act of terrorism.

Meanwhile, a number of Catholic churches were targeted by vandalism, theft, or unruly protesters disrupting services.

This came after a call late last week from pro-abortion group Ruth Sent us to “stand at or in a local Catholic church Sunday, May 8,” which was Mother’s Day.

The call came in reaction to last week’s explosive news that a leaked draft opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito indicated the high court is set to overturn the critical 1973 decision that effectively made abortion legal in the United States.

In Los Angeles, a number of activists had to be escorted out of Sunday Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels as they attempted to disrupt the service, as LifeSiteNews reported.

Catholic churches in Katy, Texas and Fort Collins, Colorado were also targeted by vandals and protesters mobbed the doors of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.

Pro-life pregnancy resource centers in Denton, Texas and Portland, Oregon were also targeted by vandals.

On May 2, The Epoch Times reported, pro-abortion groups listed the addresses of pro-life pregnancy centers in Portland online. Crisis pregnancy centers that provide women with options to keep their baby, including assistance with adoption, parenting classes, baby clothes, furniture, and diapers, have come under growing attack from pro-abortion groups which claim they deceive women into visiting their clinics instead of abortion facilities.

Loreto House in Denton, Texas has been the subject of harassing phone calls and suspicious job inquiries all week, and, over the weekend, was spray-painted with the message, “Forced Birth is Murder” and “Not a Clinic.”

“I’m concerned that when Roe gets overturned that they will really get violent,” director Randy Bollig told The Epoch Times. “We’re a big target because we serve so many women in our area.”

The clinic offers women free services including sonograms and meetings and has resources available for mothers until their babies are three years old. It gives away 20,000 diapers every month. The cost to repair the vandalism is the same as about 7,900 diapers.

Bollig said he fears the violence will only increase if Roe is overturned.

“There will be an attack on Christians, there will be an attack on the natural family,” he said.

“And that’s just the way it is. We just have to keep doing what we’re doing. We’re here to help women.”
