On June 7, the anti-life group Jane's Revenge tossed Molotov cocktails into the CompassCare Pregnancy Services building in Buffalo, New York, causing extensive damage. Jim Harden, executive director of the facility, tells AFN that now, five months later, the FBI has announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits.
"There's been a concerted, very intentional attack on pro-life Christians throughout this country for the last six months, and the FBI has had no arrests, none whatsoever," Harden notes.
Over the course of the year, 160 pro-life pregnancy centers and churches have been vandalized and damaged. Meanwhile, the federal government has arrested at least 12 pro-lifers, accusing them of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
"The FBI wants to look like they're being even-handed here and that they're really interested, but they're just … slow-walking justice," the pro-lifer submits. "It took them five weeks just to look at our video surveillance -- five whole weeks."
He adds that the FBI's reward is a "pittance," unless they give $25,000 leading to the arrest of anyone in all 160 attacks.
"That's a $4 million proposition," Harden figures. "That's real money. Then maybe people might start taking the FBI a little more seriously."
Meanwhile, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee is taking a closer look at the investigations to find out why justice is taking so long, and/or whether the FBI is so politicized that it does not think pro-life organizations deserve protection.
