Violence Targeting Pro-Life Movement & Pregnancy Centers on the Rise

Violence Targeting Pro-Life Movement & Pregnancy Centers on the Rise

The historic leak of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year has poured gasoline onto what was already raging fire of the pro-life debate in America.

It appears that the Left has taken the increased hostility as an opportunity to target their opposition with violence, vandalism, and harassment.

In the weeks since the monumental Supreme Court leak that saw Politico publish Justice Samuel Alito’s Supreme Court draft opinion – which suggested the Court will be overturning Roe v. Wade – violence and harassment of pro-life groups across the country has steadily risen.

In a recent report released by Fox News, the Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America group detailed 49 incidents of violence, vandalism, and harassment committed by pro- activists since the May 2nd leak. At least 47 of those incidents included the targeting of pro-life individuals, events, organizations, pregnancy centers, and churches.

“Every abortion is an act of violence – violence against the unborn child who is killed and violence against the mother who is wounded in one of the deepest ways possible,” the organization’s president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said in a press release. “In contrast to that inherent violence, the vast network of pregnancy centers, maternity homes, and other organizations across America exist to peacefully and lovingly serve women and families.”

“President Biden, his administration, and every elected officeholder and candidate needs to unequivocally condemn them now, including illegal picketing of Supreme Court justices’ homes and the attempted murder of Justice Kavanaugh,” she said.

“Violence and destruction of property have no place in our country under any circumstances, and the President denounces this action,” the statement read. “We should all agree that actions like this are completely unacceptable regardless of our politics.”

This increased violence has also spread to the Justices of the Supreme Court itself. Protestors frequently harass them outside their homes, with one even going so far as attempting to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh earlier this month.

Last Wednesday, two U.S. Marshals witnessed a suspect dressed in black clothing exit a taxi in front of Kavanaugh’s Montgomery County home with a backpack and suitcase. Shortly afterward, the suspect, identified as Nicholas John Roske, called 911 to report he was experiencing suicidal thoughts and intended to kill Kavanaugh in response to the Supreme Court draft opinion which was leaked in May.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America led over a dozen other pro-life organizations in sending a joint letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland. In the letter, groups called on the Justice Department to investigate the string of violence against pro-life individuals and entities. However, it seems the left is unwilling to speak out against these heinous acts.

Since the incident, other than releasing a statement condemning the assassination attempt on Kavanaugh through a spokesperson, President Biden has remained silent since the attempt on Kavanaugh’s life.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used her purported Catholic faith to promote and defend abortion and refused to even give an answer regarding the wave of violence being visited against churches, pregnancy centers, and pro-life offices. She also refused to take any more questions on the matter.

Republicans on the other hand have been strongly condemning the violence these pro-life groups are facing. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise spoke with Fox News earlier this month and condemned Democratic leaders for encouraging this kind of behavior.

“For weeks, Democrat leaders from President Biden’s White House to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer encouraged dangerous against Supreme Court justices, including at their homes, to illegally threaten and intimidate them in an attempt to change the outcome of a court decision,” House minority whip Steve Scalise, R-La., told Fox News Digital.

“How many more times do we need to see political violence motivated by threatening rhetoric before Democrats stop encouraging and condoning this kind of dangerous behavior?” the Republican whip continued.

“Rather than investigating parents at school board meetings as ‘domestic terrorists,’ President Biden’s Justice Department should look into the actual dangerous violence coming from the radical left that continues to put the lives of people in danger for their political views,” he added.
