A Wisconsin Pro-Life group’s office was fire-bombed on Sunday morning. Abortion activists threw a Molotov cocktail through an office window, causing significant damage to the interior.
Thanks be to God the office was empty at the time and no one was hurt. Yet, the attackers left a threat spray-painted to the office wall. The message warned, “if abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
A wave of vengeance, vandalism, and violence swept over the nation this weekend over the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Catholic churches have been specifically targeted for their strong position in defense of Life against abortion.
Even in Texas, churches were viciously targeted, vandalized, and robbed this weekend. One church in downtown Houston was vandalized with the spray-painted message, “pro-choice is Pro-Life.”
Another church in Katy, TX was broken into and their tabernacle and Eucharistic hosts were stolen. To a Catholic the robbery and desecration of the Eucharist is the greatest form of sacrilege, and is seen as desecrating the body of Christ.
In Austin abortion activists marched through downtown, some holding signs reading “abort the bible,” screaming and chanting curses towards the church (warning tweet contains obscene language).
Abortion groups have announced the violence will continue.
One activist tweeted, “If you think these protests are out of hand, you ain’t seen nothing yet,” to which another activist added, “Believe me, we don’t plan on it being peaceful.”
Devaluing human Life inside the womb naturally leads to devaluing all human Life. Yet, the violence and vitriol from the left will not intimidate the Pro-life movement nor weaken our resolve to defend Life.
