More than 100 pro-life pregnancy centers, churches, and pro-life organizations have been targeted and attacked in the nine months since the May 2, 2022 leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Supreme Court decision which overturned Roe v. Wade. Family Research Council has been faithfully documenting the incidents, the most recent being a December 17 act of vandalism against a Michigan pro-life center.
A pregnancy center in Macomb County was vandalized Saturday morning. Now, police are searching for the people responsible.
Several spray-painted messages were left on the walls at Pregnancy Aid Detroit, the pro-life, crisis pregnancy center in Eastpointe.
This is not the first time a pro-life pregnancy center was vandalized in metro Detroit. Back in September, a Southfield pro-life pregnancy center was also hit.
A threatening message was left “‘If abortion is not safe neither are you.”
A militant, extremist abortion rights group known as “Jane’s Revenge” has been behind similar crimes around the country. It’s being investigated by police if it is connected to the incident in Eastpointe.
Jane’s Revenge has taken credit for a number of these attacks, yet, despite the FBI opening up an investigation concerning these incidents in June 2022, not one arrest has been made. Perhaps the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate for classified documents, and the raid on the homes of pro-life activists who were praying in front of abortion clinics are stretching them thin.
On January 10, a network of pro-life centers in New York decided to take matters into their own hands. CompassCare joined with a law firm to hire their own private investigators in order to root out the culprits who attacked their pro-life centers.
From Fox News:
A network of pro-life pregnancy centers in New York hired private investigators to probe a firebomb attack against a facility last June after what they describe as an inadequate response from federal law enforcement.
“They’ve been responsive, but what they’ve done we don’t know,” Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, told Fox News Digital of the FBI.
CompassCare, which has multiple pro-life pregnancy centers in upstate New York, announced last week that it was joining forces with the society, a nonprofit law firm, to hire private investigators to find those behind the incident at their Buffalo office last summer.
Vandals reportedly smashed windows and lit fires in the building’s reception room and nurses’ office, then defaced the building with “Jane was here” graffiti, an apparent reference to the radical pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge.
Jane’s Revenge is still loud and proud about its so-called activism. How hard can it be to find these folks? They did not show up at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, so I guess that makes them hard to find.
Whether the FBI was one-upped by the New York pro-life centers’ actions, or on high alert with a Church-style Committee investigation of their organization in the works, something has lit a fire under them and now they are taking further action.
Also from Fox News:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $25,000 reward for information related to a string of attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers.
The FBI will pay out to sources who provide “information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the suspect(s) responsible for these crimes.”
The attacks on pro-life health care centers are being treated as possible domestic violent extremism and violent crime charges on a case by case basis.
“Today’s announcement reflects the FBI’s commitment to vigorously pursue investigations into crimes against pregnancy resource centers, faith-based organizations, and reproductive health clinics across the country,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement. “We will continue to work closely with our national, state, and local law enforcement partners to hold responsible anyone who uses extremist views to justify their criminal actions.”
Well, it’s about damned time, but probably just more theater. As I write, FBI Director Christopher Wray is in Davos, sucking up to the Schwabs and Soroses of the world who wholeheartedly believe they are there to save the planet from the likes of us. So, any confidence that the FBI is actually going to produce any suspects is… suspect.
