(FreedomBeacon.com)- In the week following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, more than two dozen pro-life organizations and churches have been vandalized or set on fire nationwide.
In total there were 29 confirmed reports of arson or vandalism in the last week of June alone, averaging 4 crimes each day. This is on top of the dozens of incidents that occurred after Justice Alito’s draft decision was leaked and before the Court ruled.
One of the incidents occurred in Longmont Colorado one day after the Supreme Court ruling was released.
Colorado authorities and the FBI are investigating a fire at the Life Choices pregnancy center in Longmont that occurred in the early hours of June 25. The building sustained fire and smoke damage and the front of the property was defaced with black paint.
The vandals had included the telltale “If abortions aren’t safe neither are you” message that has been cropping up on pro-life pregnancy centers nationwide.
Police confirmed that the incident was being investigated as a possible arson and area residents were asked to check their surveillance for any activity during the time of the fire.
A Virginia pregnancy center was also attacked that same morning. Surveillance footage released by law enforcement showed four individuals walking away from the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in the early hours of June 25.
A loosely-affiliated pro-abortion group called “Jane’s Revenge” has been calling for violence against pro-life groups and pregnancy centers.
Last Thursday, the Hope Clinic for Women in Nashville, Tennessee had a Molotov cocktail thrown through a broken window. Fortunately, the device did not ignite. The words “Jane’s Revenge” were spray-painted on the side of the building.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee described the attack as “terrorism” and said these crimes should be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”
According to the Catholic News Agency, in the last week of June, churches have been targeted in West Virginia, Washington, Virginia, Louisiana, Colorado, California, Texas, Florida, New York, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Oregon, and Utah.
