CompassCare, a pro-life pregnancy center outside Buffalo, New York, was firebombed early Tuesday morning, adding to the growing list of similar attacks since the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion threatened to overturn Roe.
Vandals broke windows, set fire to the medical office, and added graffiti with the words “Jane Was Here,” a phrase used by the abortion activist group Jane’s Revenge that has claimed responsibility for other nationwide attacks. Reportedly, Jane’s Revenge vowed more of the same, calling on its supporters to conduct a “Night of Revenge.”
CompassCare’s CEO Jim Harden tweeted, “CompassCare’s Buffalo office firebombed by abortion activists on Tuesday morning.
Harden said in a statement, “This is the pro-abortion ‘Kristallnacht.’ Because of this act of violence, the needs of women facing an unplanned pregnancy will go unmet and babies will die.” Harden continued, “CompassCare will rebuild because women deserve better. CompassCare will not stop serving because pre-boys and girls deserve protection.”
Ironically, New York’s Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul recently earmarked $35 million of taxpayer funds to support and expand abortion services. When New York’s CBS2 News questioned her on a message to voters concerned about “reproductive rights,” Hochul responded, “Today is about taking action. “We are laying down the marker today. We are saying that we refuse to go backward. We have fought too long and hard for this access and for these rights, and New York has always led the way when it comes to enshrining these kinds of rights,”
The New York legislature added insult to injury by passing legislation to investigate pro-life pregnancy centers precisely because they do not perform abortions.
Pro-abortion activists from Texas Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights also disrupted the Sunday Morning Service at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, as Pastor Joel Osteen prepared to preach.
A trio of women yelled, “My body, my f**king choice” and “Overturn Roe, H**l no!” while stripping down to their underwear. Immediately, the women were escorted from the building while the congregation cheered and clapped as they left.
Outside, the trio continued their protest along with several other activists with banners and bullhorns.
One activist, Julianne D’Eredita, told KPRC 2 News, “I know it seems outrageous to do it in a church in a private space. However, the people that are enforcing these laws have no qualms about coming up to women in private spaces, doctor’s offices and medical clinics to harass them and call them murders.”
“Joel Osteen has an international audience and silence is violence when it comes to things like these,” D’Eredita added. “We have a very unprecedented and very short amount of time to garner the attention we need to get millions of people on the streets, millions of people doing actions like we were today.”
