Crime Against Pro-Life Centers

“Attacks on pro-life churches and pregnancy resource centers could become a daily occurrence.” That is the conclusion of a study done through the Religious Freedom Institute. They hired a former intelligence expert to analyze the various crimes against pro-life organizations (pregnancy centers, churches) that have occurred since the May 2 leak of the Supreme Court Dobbs decision.

The study concluded that such attacks would become routine if liberal district attorneys and a complacent Justice Department refuse to prosecute the perpetrators. The low-threat crime includes breaking windows and defacing the exterior of pregnancy centers with graffiti. The study concludes those “will become routine, occurring as often as one to three times per day, so long as the environment remains permissive.”

More serious crimes, which can include scuffles that do not harm parishioners and property damage that cannot be fixed in less than a year, the study concludes “will likely occur frequently for the rest of 2022, perhaps as often as one to three times per month, unless aggressive prevention measures change the environment.” But the most serious crimes that include armed attacks and arson may also begin to surface.

Andrew Beckwith and Jeremy Dys, writing in Newsweek, believe the actions by the Massachusetts Attorney General even encourage crime against pregnancy centers. After she issued a “consumer advisory” against crisis pregnancy centers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, vandals attacked a clinic smashing windows and destroying property. A few days later, another clinic was attacked, the walls being splattered with red paint.

These examples are a sad commentary on law enforcement officials who fail to protect pro-life people and centers merely because they provide an alternative to abortion.viewpoints new web version
