Texas Right to Life receives bomb threat at Austin office: ‘This is a spiritual war’

A Texas-based pro-life activist organization received a new bomb threat against one of its offices, allegedly due to its support for the state’s controversial heartbeat abortion ban restricting abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Texas Right to Life released a statement Monday explaining that its legislative office in Austin had received a bomb threat that morning. The threat came in the form of what the lobbying group labeled a “suspicious letter” sent to the office, which threatened to bomb the organization and said that they should expect to “receive the bodies of aborted babies.” 

Authorities arrived at the office at 11:40 a.m., according to the statement. The Austin Police Department is investigating the incident.

“Devaluing life inside the womb inevitably leads to violence outside the womb,” Texas Right to Life President Elizabeth Graham said in a statement. “These recent crimes demonstrate the brokenness, anger, and pain of the pro-abortion movement. We pray for the perpetrator, that he or she may find healing in Christ, and we ask for prayers for our staff.”

Kimberlyn Schwartz, director of media and communication for Texas Right to Life, told The Christian Post in a statement Thursday that the most recent threat and other threats they have received are “heartbreaking.”

“These threats are heartbreaking, not only because they endanger our staff, but also because they reveal the anger and pain that abortion leaves on the hearts of its proponents,” stated Schwartz.

“Ultimately, this is a spiritual war. Texas Right to Life is taking ground from deep in the Evil One’s territory and proclaiming the sanctity of Life. Now is the time for all Christians to stand up for preborn children and pray for the end of abortion.”

In another email cited by The Texas Citizen Journal, Graham said the organization is working with the Austin Police Department and the FBI to determine the validity of the threat.  According to Texas Right to Life, the threatening letter stated: “LETS BOMB TEXAS FOR LIFE AND CHANGE IT TO – TEXAS FOR DEATH.”

Texas Right to Life, which was instrumental in helping craft Texas’ new abortion law, received an email in September from someone threatening to blow up its headquarters in Bellaire. A suspicious package was delivered to that office later that day. The facility was evacuated and bomb experts from Houston checked the package, which turned out to not have an explosive device inside.

“Texas Right to Life did the right thing in contacting the police,” said the Bellaire Police Department in a statement to CP in September.

“It was fortunate that our officers were on scene when the suspicious package was delivered and we appreciate the occupants of the building working with police to quickly clear out in the event that this was an actual bomb.”

In May, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the Texas Heartbeat Act prohibiting most abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually about six weeks into a pregnancy. The law is not enforced through state officials but rather through private citizens given financial incentives to sue abortion providers and anyone who helps a pregnant woman procure an abortion.  Despite multiple pre-enforcement legal challenges, including from the Biden administration, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the controversial legislation to take effect on Sept. 1.

On Nov. 1, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for around three hours on the Texas law, focusing on the means through which the ban was enforced.  

“Since the Texas Heartbeat Act took effect September 1, abortion advocates wished rape upon our female staff and their daughters, left vicious voicemails, circulated the home addresses of employees online, and threatened to bomb our offices twice within four months,” Texas Right to Life’s Monday statement reads. “Texas Right to Life has taken proactive measures to ensure the safety of our staff since we became the target of violent messages online and by phone due to the Texas Heartbeat Act.”

In September, an Oklahoma man was arrested for making death threats to pro-life Texas legislators.

4,500 Babies Saved From Abortions After Texas De-Funds Planned Parenthood

New Texas abortion figures are out today and they confirm that de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business has real results. Almost 4,500 unborn babies were saved from abortions as the new Texas abortion figures show a decline in abortions from 68,298 in 2012 to 63,849 abortions in 2013, the last year for which data is available.

Americans nationwide have called for de-funding Planned Parenthood after the massive scandal at Planned Parenthood, where its staff and officials have been caught selling aborted babies and their body many body parts

In July, 2011, pro-life Texas Governor Rick Perry signed SB 7, a health care measure containing language that would revoke the taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The measure de-funded Planned Parenthood of $34 million or more.

Texas Right to Life strongly supported the Planned Parenthood de-funding effort and worked to close a loophole in SB 7 that would have required Texas taxpayers to fund the abortion of unborn children who suffer fetal abnormalities or who suffer from conditions “incompatible with life.” “The most evil, filthy organization in America, Planned Parenthood, might actually have to close,” says Jim Graham, director of the group. “State and federal dollars should go to health care providers who do not provide or refer for abortion,” he said. “While the amount of funds allocated to family planning has steadily increased over the years, 81,851 women in Texas still chose abortion in 2008, the last year for which data is available.  Our tax dollars should not go to the abortion industry under the guise of family planning.”

Since de-funding, abortions in Texas have dropped by almost 20,000.I AM A PERSON with PoemPP Monster

The Texas state health department released a new report with the latest abortion figures and they show most abortions were done on unborn babies of women who live in Texas while the rest were done on babies of women who reside outside the state. Most women who aborted their babies in Texas in the last year were between the ages of 18-40 but two 11-year-old girls had abortions as did 64 girls aged 12-13, and 487 girls between the ages of 14-15. That means hundreds of girls who are victimized by statutory rape became pregnant and got abortions in Texas.

That leads to the question of whether or not Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are properly reporting those statutory rapes to authorizes. The Planned Parenthood abortion business has a history of concealing statutory rape and failing to report it at all or dragging its feet and filing reports well after the rape and abortion, leading to the repeat victimization of the young girls.

Some 280 babies were aborted who were 20 weeks of age or older and half of all abortions in Texas were repeat abortions.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts

After eight shocking videos that have caught top Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners arranging to sell aborted babiesand even dissecting one live baby — millions of pro-life people are up in arms.
