Abortion advocacy group Jane’s Revenge claimed responsibility for a firebombing attack on the office of CompassCare, a pro-life Christian pregnancy support center in Buffalo, New York, on Tuesday. The building that was attacked suffered significant fire damage and was also vandalized with graffiti.
The abortion group has a reputation for using violence and terroristic attacks against pro-life advocates. The CompassCare office saw much of the interior of the building destroyed by fire. The graffiti painted on the walls of the building said “Jane Was Here.”
The same group firebombed the offices of Wisconsin Family Action last month in Madison, Wisconsin. The graffiti there read, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.” Jane’s Revenge also claimed responsibility for attacking a Washington, D.C., crisis pregnancy center last week and painting “Jane Says Revenge” on the side of its building.
CompassCare issued a statement after this week’s attack pointing out that Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has not only ignored violence directed toward pro-life organizations but has allocated $35 million of taxpayer money to boost security at abortion providers.
The terror attacks have followed the recent leak of a draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicating that it will likely reverse its 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade.
The Department of Homeland Security has been reported to be preparing to deal with additional violence around the country when the official decision of the court is released. The agency issued a memo last month indicating that threats on the safety of the justices of the court, lawmakers, clergy, and health care providers are likely to increase after the announcement of the ruling.
On Wednesday, Nicholas John Roske of California was arrested near the outside of the Maryland home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Roske was carrying a handgun, knife, pepper spray, and zip ties at the time he was arrested. He had taken a taxi to Kavanaugh’s home and walked around the area shortly before calling 911 to turn himself in.
Roske now faces federal charges for attempted murder of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
CompassCare CEO Jim Harden described the attacks being seen around the country are the “pro-abortion Kristallnacht.” He said that the attacks directly impact the ability of women facing a pregnancy crisis to get help and as a result more unborn babies will die. He said his group will re-build in Buffalo because “pre-born boys and girls deserve protection.”
