The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, was vandalized hours after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide, June 25, 2022. | Facebook/Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center

A pro-life pregnancy center in Virginia has become the first anti-abortion organization to face vandalism since the United States Supreme Court reversed the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

Early Saturday morning, hours after the Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that the Constitution does not contain a right to abortion, pro-abortion activists vandalized Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in Lynchburg, Virginia. While several pro-life pregnancy centers and churches have found themselves subject to varying degrees of vandalism since Politico first published a leaked draft opinion in the Dobbs case eight weeks ago, the attack on Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center is the first to take place since the publication of the Dobbs decision.

One image of the vandalism shared on Facebook by the Lynchburg Police Department shows the words “Jane’s Revenge” spray-painted on the ground in front of the facility, with the “A” in the phrase written like the symbol for the anarchist movement. The symbol for the anarchist movement was also spray-painted onto the side of the building.

A group of pro-abortion activists calling themselves Jane’s Revenge has taken credit for many acts of vandalism against churches and pro-life pregnancy centers in recent weeks. They have also called on pro-life organizations to disband and declared “open season” on such groups in a communique released two weeks ago. Republican federal lawmakers have called on the Department of Justice to take action against the group in response to the aforementioned threat.

The FBI has already announced an investigation into attacks against “pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country.” Last year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security included both pro-life and pro-abortion groups on a list of “domestic violent extremists” that “pose an elevated threat to the homeland in 2021.”

Another image of the property damage at Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center reveals graffiti declaring, “If abortion ain’t safe you ain’t safe.” Additional images of the vandalism illustrated a broken window at the facility, along with the words “Vote blue LOL” spray-painted on the side of the building.

The Lynchburg Police Department also provided a still image of security camera footage documenting “four masked individuals” who committed the acts of vandalism. The timestamp showed the perpetrators gathered outside the facility at around 1:20 a.m.

Susan Campbell, executive director of Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center, reacted to the targeting of her business in a statement posted on Facebook Saturday: “BRPC has been vandalized greatly and we need the support of our community now more than ever. If you are available to give financial support for additional security, and lots of prayers, we would greatly appreciate you. We know God has [His] Hand over our center and the work at BRPC is not finished.”

Campbell also posted additional pictures of the vandalism, including the defacement of a streetside sign advertising the facility with a symbol for the anarchist movement. 

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, condemned the vandalism of Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in a tweet Saturday. “There is no room for this in Virginia, breaking the law is unacceptable,” he said. “This is not how we find common ground. Virginia State Police stands ready to support local law enforcement as they investigate.”

There is no room for this in Virginia, breaking the law is unacceptable. This is not how we find common ground. Virginia State Police stands ready to support local law enforcement as they investigate.

In a statement issued following the Dobbs decision, Youngkin said he plans to “take every action I can to protect life” now that “the Supreme Court of the United States has rightfully returned power to the people and their elected representatives in the states.”

Maintaining that “Virginians want fewer abortions, not more abortions,” he insisted that “we can build a bipartisan consensus on protecting the life of unborn children, especially when they begin to feel pain in the womb, and importantly supporting mothers and families who choose life.”

“I’ve asked Senator Siobhan Dunnavant, Senator Steve Newman, Delegate Kathy Byron and Delegate Margaret Ransone to join us in an effort to bring together legislators and advocates from across the Commonwealth on this issue to find areas where we can agree and chart the most successful path forward,” Youngkin added. “I’ve asked them to do the important work needed and be prepared to introduce legislation when the General Assembly returns in January.”

Youngkin’s comments reflect the fact that with Roe overturned, the legality of abortion will be decided on a state-by-state basis. Virginia is one of 10 states that will continue enforcing existing abortion laws and/or restrictions until new legislation is passed. Currently, Virginia bans abortions after the second trimester of pregnancy.

Twenty-one states will either completely ban or more severely restrict abortion than they do now and 16 states will continue allowing abortions throughout most or all of pregnancy as the right to abortion has been codified into law. Three additional states could soon enact changes to their abortion laws depending on the results of possible ballot referendums on the matter.

Following Politico’s report of a leaked draft opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization indicating that a majority of justices seem inclined to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide, multiple churches and pro-life advocacy organizations have been burned, looted and vandalized by abortion extremists. 

However, not every act of vandalism is explicitly tied to outrage over the leaked Dobbs draft. Here is a list of churches and pro-life organizations that have been vandalized or had items stolen from them since Politico’s story was published on May 2. The most recent acts of vandalism are listed first. The list will be updated as more vandalism takes place.

Oregon Right to Life: Salem, Oregon

statement posted by the pro-life organization Oregon Right to Life on Monday said, “In the late evening on Sunday, May 8, the offices of Oregon Right to Life were attacked.” The group noted that “An individual used incendiary devices, one of which exploded and caught the building on fire.”

“The office was vacant at the time and no one was harmed. Fire and police departments responded quickly, minimizing damage to the building.”

Holy Rosary Church: Houston, Texas

In a Facebook post on Monday, Holy Rosary Church in Houston, Texas shared a message from Friar Mariano Veliz who posted a picture of the words “Pro-choice is pro-life!” spray-painted on the doors of the church, accompanied by the caption: “This is what the angry, hateful anti-Catholic pro-choice activists did to our church last night.” Veliz added that “these people painted the same message on our side doors as well.”

St. Bartholomew the Apostle Catholic Church: Katy, Texas

Father Christopher Plant of St. Bartholomew the Apostle Catholic Church in Katy, Texas, took to Twitter Monday to announce that “Our tabernacle was stolen last night.” Adrian Fonseca, a producer for a Catholic radio network, provided an update on Twitter Wednesday: “They found the tabernacle at a Burger King. Appears to be cracked open. Stole Our Lord and left behind the Gold. Clearly was not stolen for the money, but for something far more precious.”

In a subsequent tweet, Fonseca asserted that “things are more complicated” because the “tabernacle was stolen a second time.” He maintained that “police have the faces and plates of the two sets of thieves,” adding, “[they] predict they will have it in custody within 24 hours.”

First Care Women’s Health: Manassas, Virginia

ABC News affiliate WUSA in Washington, D.C., aired a report on vandalism that took place at First Care Women’s Health, a pro-life pregnancy center in Manassas, Virginia. Becky Sheetz, the CEO of First Care’s parent company Life First, explained that “in one section, it said liars, another one said fake clinic and the other one said ‘abortion is a right.’” tweet from the Rev. Dean Nelson of the pro-life group Human Coalition indicates that the vandalism took place on Sunday.

Unfortunately, a Pregnacy Resource Center in Northern Virginia was vandalized last night.
This charity lovingly provides support & practical supplies to women no matter what they decide. And yet, they’re targeted with hate, intimidation and destruction. Sad! pic.twitter.com/E1U2Jro1YC— Rev. Dean Nelson (@RevDeanNelson) May 9, 2022

Wisconsin Family Action: Madison, Wisconsin

An Incident Report compiled by the police department in Madison, Wisconsin, stated that “Flames were seen coming from” the headquarters of the pro-life organization Wisconsin Family Action “shortly after 6 a.m.” on Sunday. According to the report, “A Molotov cocktail, which did not ignite, was thrown inside the building. It also appears a separate fire was started in response. Graffiti was also found at the scene. No injuries have been reported.”

Pictures of the vandalism, posted to Twitter by Alexander Shur of the Wisconsin State Journal showed the phrase “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” painted on an exterior wall of the facility and a fire-damaged office with books scattered across the floor. A group of pro-abortion activists who call themselves Jane’s Revenge claimed responsibility for the attack and vowed to engage in further vandalism and demanded that pro-life organizations disband.

Loreto House: Denton, Texas 

Loreto House, a pro-life pregnancy center in Denton, Texas, has also experienced pro-abortion vandalism in recent days. A tweet posted by North Texas Catholic on Sunday reported that the facility was “vandalized this weekend.” The organization helps women, men and children by providing “material goods, parent education, and emotional and spiritual support” during a woman’s pregnancy and up to the child’s third birthday. 

Pictures of the vandalism reveal the roadside sign advertising the facility emblazoned with the phrase “Not a clinic” and the same phrase painted on the organization’s front door. Additional graffiti on the building proclaims, “Forced Birth is Murder.”  

Concerned Women for America: Alexandria, Virginia

Security camera footage obtained by Fox News reveals an unidentified male vandalizing the headquarters of the pro-life organization Concerned Women for America in Alexandria, Virginia over the weekend. The video footage reveals the perpetrator repeatedly flipping off the security camera and urinating on the doors and windows of the facility in addition to ripping the intercom system and security camera from the wall.

Images of the vandalism provided to The Daily Wire reveal urine stains on the ground-level doors and windows of the facility along with the exposed wires from the intercom system that the vandal left behind.

St. John XXIII Catholic Parish: Fort Collins, Colorado

Fort Collins Police Services in Fort Collins, Colorado, announced on Facebook Saturday that “around 1:15 a.m. on May 7, an unknown person spray painted the front doors of [St. John XXIII Catholic Parish] and broke exterior glass panels.” A parishioner of the church posted a picture of the vandalism on Twitter Saturday. The phrase “My Body My Choice” was painted on the church doors.

St. Joseph’s Priory: Armada, Michigan

Last week, St. Joseph’s Priory, a Catholic Church in Armada, Michigan, was vandalized with graffiti, although the messages did not include any reference to abortion. Pictures of the vandalism, posted on Twitter, reveal that graffiti reading “Gay” was painted on the sign advertising St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church & Academy. A sidewalk featured graffiti reading “FAG Republicans Dead.” A door at the church was painted with the number “666” and the word “FAGS.”

Another door had a pentagram drawn on it. Pillars at the church had the words “suicide” and “big d—” painted on them. A message extending from an exterior wall of a building on the campus to adjacent doors had the number “666” next to a heart symbol alongside the word “big” on top of a picture of male genitalia.

Southeast Portland Pregnancy Resource Center: Portland, Oregon

The group First Image, which runs several pro-life pregnancy centers, announced on Facebook Thursday that “a group of people vandalized our Southeast Portland Pregnancy Resource Center last night.” First Image elaborated on the damage sustained at the Portland, Oregon facility, noting that “All the windows on one side of the center were broken, and there was a hateful, anti-PRC message spray-painted on the wall.”

“The incident happened overnight, and nobody was hurt. We have an incredibly resilient staff. Nonetheless, it is deeply unsettling and puts everybody at all of our locations a bit on edge,” the group added.

Sacred Heart of Mary Church: Boulder, Colorado

The Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder, Colorado, was vandalized Tuesday, one day after the publication of the Dobbs draft. A news report from local news outlet Denver 7 showed video footage of the vandalism, which included the spray-painted phrases “My Body My Choice” on the doors of the church and “Abortion Saves Lives” on its exterior walls. The church also had several windows broken and statues of the saints featured on the exterior of the property defaced.

Missouri rock-oriented radio station KFNS-FM, 100.7 “The Viper,” released a news item Tuesday evening that, if true, will destroy the case against Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed Brown.

Under the banner headline, “”JUSTIFIED!,” the station reported on its Facebook page:

***BREAKING NEWS***
Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction.

Johnson’s prior testimony that Wilson shot Brown in the back while running away from the officer was cast in doubt after autopsy reports indicated he was shot in the front.

Since the Ferguson, Mo., shooting, that area has become the scene of nightly looting, vandalism and racially-charged demonstrations. The vast majority of the demonstrators have called for the officer’s arrest.

In a video address released Tuesday, even Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, has called for Wilson’s “vigorous prosecution.”

Readers should be cautioned that the radio station’s breaking news item has so far been uncorroborated.

Seriously, You Can’t Make This Stuff Up


Teenage girl sentenced to a year in jail for throwing bacon on a Scotland mosque

How long will it be until libs in the United States start sentencing people to jail for “hurting other people’s feelings”?

A teenage girl was sentenced to lock-up for 12 months Friday for throwing bacon at the window of a mosque and wrapping a few pieces around the door handles, the BBC reported.

No one would question that desecration of a church of any kind is wrong. The act, committed in January 2013, while unkind and inexcusable, was not vandalism. It damaged nothing and hurt nobody. What ostensibly should have resulted in a fine, an obligation to polish the handles and sweep the floor, turned out to be much more.

Chelsea Lambie, 18, and two friends were convicted by a jury of threatening and abusive behavior in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Douglas Cruikshank, 39, was sent to jail for nine months because he pled guilty, and Wayne Stilwel from Gorebridge, who also pled guilty, received 10 months behind bars.

According to The Scotsman, the sole worshipper inside saw the trio at the door but ignored them, and then heard something hit against the prayer room window, the uncooked bacon.

At the trial, security guard Usman Mahmood explained the offensive nature of the encroachment.

“It is against our culture and our religion. We do not eat pork or even touch it. I felt very bad seeing this meat in my sacred place. It hurt my feelings when I saw this meat hanging inside the mosque…it was very disturbing,” he said.

“How do you react to your knot-headed brethren beheading our Christian Brothers and raping our Christian sisters? Shut up with your stupid feeling hurt. I’m not interested. When you start speaking out about your stupid religion’s teaching of sever atrocities, then I will listen to your complaint about some bacon. Until then, SHUT THE HECK UP!!!!!” Jerry Broussard, WhatDidYouSay.org

Christian Persecution

The prosecuting attorney for east of Scotland, John Logue, said: “The Muslim community are a valued and integral part of Scottish society and there is no place for such attacks in modern Scotland…we will not let it be blighted by a narrow minded and hateful minority,” the Scotsman reported.

“REALLY? Valued and INTREGRAL? Oh, they’ve paid you off, You are a miserable hack.’

“Valued and INTREGRAL this.” JB>>>>>>>>angry 05

He added that “we will maintain our zero-tolerance approach towards such crimes, which will continue to be investigated carefully and prosecuted robustly.”

“It does not seem to me there is any way to deal with this case other than custody,” said Sheriff Alistair Noble, who passed down the terms on convictions of threatening and abusive behavior.

I wonder what would happen if someone left a Ouija board on the pew of a Catholic church in Scotland

Horror: Violent mob of topless pro-abort feminists attacks praying men defending cathedral (VIDEO) Edit (0)


http://www.lifesitenews.com/horror-mob-of-topless-pro-abort-feminists-attacks-rosary-praying-men-defend.html?fb_action_ids=649051494156&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=feed_opengraph&action_object_map=%257B%2522649051494156%2522%253A188539301338032%257D&action_type_map=%257B%2522649051494156%2522%253A%2522og.likes%2522%257D&action_ref_map=%255B%255D

Buenos Aires, December 2nd, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Extremely disturbing video footage from Argentina shows a mob of feminists at a recent protest attacking and sexually molesting a group of Rosary-praying Catholic men who were peacefully protecting the cathedral in the city of San Juan from threats of vandalism.

The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like moustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting “get your rosaries out of our ovaries.” (Note: Some of the most graphic content has been removed from the video. Uncensored footage is available here. Viewer discretion strongly advised.)

According to InfoCatolica, some of the women chanted a song, with the lyrics: “To the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, who wants to get between our sheets, we say that we want to be whores, travesties and lesbians. Legal abortion in every hospital.”

During the attack some men were visibly weeping. None of them retaliated against the abuses heaped on them.

 Protect

While the site of the protest was the front of the cathedral, InfoBae reports that “the whole city awoke to graffiti in favor of abortion.”

Inside the cathedral, 700 people were also in prayer accompanied by their bishop Mos. Alfonso Delgado.

After unsuccessfully trying to get into the building, the women burned a human-sized effigy of Pope Francis. “If the pope were a woman, abortion would be legal,” they shouted.

The attack took place on Sunday, November 24th during the National Women’s Encounter, which annually brings together Argentinean feminists who support “women’s rights.”

The police reportedly told the media they were unable to intervene because “they are women.”

Click “like” if you are PRO-LIFE!

The parish priest Fr. Rómulo Campora said to the Diario de Cuyo that “the burning of the image of Pope Francis is an offense, not just to the Church but to every Argentinean because the pope is Argentinean.”

Praising the men who defended the church, he said: “San Juan loves its God, loves its faith, loves its family.”

He lamented the damage done to the cathedral and concluded that “if they don’t respect life, we can’t expect them to respect the buildings.”

The National Women’s Encounter takes place every year in different Argentinean cities, sponsored by the Department of Culture as a “social interest” event.

According to the Argentinean pro-life site ArgentinosAlerta.org, this is not the first time that the feminists wind up in public violence against churches and Catholics.

In past protests, the cathedral of Bariloche, Paraná and Posadas have also suffered damages from these groups.

“These encounters of women represent today’s civilization that seeks to impose it’s own rules,” reads the site.

“On one side, they try to impose political agenda that international organizations dictate: population control, abortion, contraception, homosexualism. On the other side, they become barbaric in the most literal sense.”
