(Worthy News) – A new report shows that since the leak in May of the US Supreme Court draft decision to reverse Roe v Wade and repeal the decades-long federal right to abortion, there have been 135 attacks on pro-life individuals and groups, compared to just six attacks against pro-choice people and entities, the Christian Post (CP) reports.
Released on Monday, the report by the Crime Prevention Research Center features a study of violent incidents that took place between May 2 and September 24, CP reports. It was on May 2 that the Supreme Court’s draft opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked. The Court’s final ruling in Dobbs, reversing the 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v Wade that there was a constitutional right to abortion until viability, was handed down June 24.
The report showed that the attacks on pro life centers involved vandalism, graffiti and arson.In one example of such attacks, New York’s CompassCare pro life office in Buffalo was firebombed on June 7. “The windows in the reception room and nurses’ office were broken and fires lit. Graffiti on the building left by the arsonists refers to the abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge reading, ‘Jane Was Here,’” CompassCare said in a statement.
In another example, Heartbeat of Miami Pregnancy Help Medical Clinics shared on Facebook on July 3 that “pro-abortion terrorists” had caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage at the pregnancy center in Hialeah, CP reports.
The attacks on pro-choice entities and individuals cited in the CPRC report were arson incidents at abortion clinics in Casper, Wyoming, and Kalamazoo, Michigan, a vehicular assault on an abortion clinic volunteer in Greensboro, North Carolina, and a bag containing a dead raccoon covered in flies left at the Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, abortion clinic, CP said.
