Since ROE was overturned public officials have not backed pregnancy centers or condemned the attackers

Proverbs 6:16-19 “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘They’re Trying to Put Us Out of Business’: Massachusetts Crisis Pregnancy Centers Under Attack
  • Since Supreme Court ruling in June, crisis pregnancy centers in Massachusetts have come under enormous pressure. Not only have vandals destroyed their property and threatened their ongoing safety, but state and local officials have largely ignored these attacks while accusing them of deceptive practices.
  • Kelly Wilcox, the executive director of Clearway Clinic says the vandals’ intent was clear. “They’re trying to put us out of business by attacking us.
  • Although the FBI is investigating the cases, public officials have not come forward to support the clinics or condemn their attackers. No arrests have been announced. Instead, local and state authorities have questioned whether or not the state’s crisis pregnancy centers engage in deceptive practices.

76 Pregnancy Centers and Churches have been targeted to date

Psalm 11:5 The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

Important Takeaways:

  • There Have Been 76 Attacks on Churches and Pregnancy Centers, Not One Attacker Has Been Sent to Prison
  • According to CNA, there have been 76 attacks and counting since early May when someone leaked a draft ruling of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling, which overturned Roe and began allowing states to protect unborn babies from abortion again. The crimes include arson, theft, vulgar graffiti, property damage and threats.
  • To date, 39 pregnancy centers have been targeted, 27 churches, one maternity home, three political organizations, four billboards/ads, one political figure and one memorial, the report found.
  • The count “only includes attacks with a clear pro-abortion motive or messaging,” according to CNA. “Numerous other vandalism/arson attacks against Catholic churches have taken place, but with less obvious motives.”
  • Without strong action by federal authorities, many fear the attacks will continue. In June, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a report warning of continued “domestic violence” directed at churches, faith-based pro-life organizations, judges and lawmakers in response to the abortion ruling.

California Legislative Committee Approves Ordering Pregnancy Centers To Give Abortion Info

A California legislative committee has approved a bill that would force all pregnancy centers in the state to tell women about getting abortions at state-funded facilities.

AB 775, the so-called “Reproductive FACT Act”, is being called the “bully bill” by pro-life groups in the state.  The author of the act, Democrat David Chiu, is specifically aiming at pregnancy centers that focus on providing life for babies rather than rushing pregnant women to abortion mills.

“The author contends that, unfortunately, there are nearly 200 licensed and unlicensed clinics known as crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in California whose goal is to interfere with women’s ability to be fully informed and exercise their reproductive rights, and that CPCs pose as full-service women’s health clinics, but aim to discourage and prevent women from seeking abortions,” the bill states.

The act would require all pregnancy care centers to give in print directions and phone numbers for abortion clinics through state social services.

The act passed the committee despite 80 people speaking against the bill versus only 24 supporting it.

“This is a bully bill,”said Assemblyman Jim Patterson, a co-founder of a pregnancy center and father of two adopted children. “This is an effort to strip out free speech and to strip out religious practice rights. This is an exceptionally dangerous, unconstitutional effort that must be defeated.”

CareNet, a pregnancy care center group, posted this on their website: that this act is specifically aimed at silencing Christians.

“AB 775 specifically targets Christian pro life pregnancy centers to: silence their voice of opposition, encourage potential clients to look to state funded programs that promote abortion and abortifacient birth control, and lastly to force the center and it’s volunteers to violate their conscience by referring for an abortion and abortifacient birth control,”Josh McClure wrote on the site.
