The violence at crisis pregnancy centers, pro-life facilities, and churches began in early May after a draft of a U.S. Supreme Court decision was published by Politico that indicated the high court was going to overturn Roe v. Wade – which it did last month as the court concluded its session. Allie Frazier of Right to Life of Northeast Ohio in Akron tells AFN that abortion activists showed up most recently (last week) just after midnight, spray-painted threatening messages, and threw rocks through glass. Fortunately, it was all recorded.
"We have a Ring camera device which recorded the entire incident," she explains. "The footage is actually pretty hard to watch with the throwing of the rocks and the loud shatter [of glass] – and the message that they wrote, especially the one on our sidewalk, was incredibly threatening."
The message in that graffiti? "If abortions aren't safe, neither are you."
In her tweet about the vandalism, Frazier attributes the damage to a group called Jane's Revenge. According to the pro-life spokeswoman, damage was also done seven days earlier, on June 24 – the day Roe was overturned.
"We actually had pro-abortion activists show up and surround our building [that day]," she recalls. "They did place signs [with] pro-abortion slogans around our window, and they also hung a coat hanger on our doorknob and gave us a middle finger into our security camera."
Police are investigating both incidents.
A pro-life clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was vandalized as well as several churches and pro-life pregnancy help centers throughout the country. According to a LifeSiteNews report, Jane's Revenge has publicly claimed responsibility for attacks against pro-life organizations and churches across the U.S.
