Republican Representative Ted Budd from North Carolina has had enough of the attacks and vandalism on pregnancy centers, and he’s doing something about it.
“Budd led 20 House Republicans in sending a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday, demanding the Department of Justice act after several pro-life pregnancy centers were vandalized and threatened,” reports Breitbart.
“Destruction of property, violence, and threats of violence have no place in a healthy and flourishing society. These attacks represent yet another development in a disturbing pattern of intimidation against crisis pregnancy centers and Pro-Life organizations,” the letter reads.
“The attackers wrote in red graffiti across the pregnancy clinic ‘if abortions aren’t safe neither are you!’
“Unfortunately, Mountain Area Pregnancy Services is not the only pregnancy resource center to be targeted. CompassCare Community in Buffalo, New York, was firebombed by an anti-life group known as ‘Jane’s Revenge,'” the letter continues.
“The perpetrators were so brazen as to take credit for the act by spray painting on the facility, ‘Jane Was Here.’ Jane’s Revenge has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks against Pro-Life pregnancy centers and organizations,” the letter further states.
Budd asked for “swift justice” against the violence:
“While these actions undoubtedly violated state law, the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) also has the power to prosecute these crimes under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act of 1994. Congress enacted this legislation not just for abortion clinics but also to protect clinics that offer a range of Pro-Life services to women, including counseling services and adoption consultations,” the letter concludes.
