(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – A pro-life pregnancy center in New York was attacked last week for the second time after being firebombed the year before due to the Dobbs ruling of the Supreme Court’s announcement.
On March 16, CompassCare, a pregnancy facility in Buffalo, New York, posted video and images showing “LIARS” being spray-painted in red on the business’s sign. The incident is being looked into, according to the Amherst Police Department.
“CompassCare’s sign was vandalized in red-letter graffiti saying ‘LIARS’ ahead of a US District Court Ruling potentially outlawing the chemical abortion drug, in Antifa/Revenge Jane’s style, consistent with the message of Governor Kathy Hochul and Attorney General Letitia James,” CompassCare CEO Rev. Jim Harden said in a statement on Monday.

On Wednesday, March 16, at approximately 12:30am ET, CompassCare, a previously firebombed Christian pro-life medical office in Buffalo, was again attacked by pro-abortion Maoist Antifa.https://t.co/33dvKSQXGH#prolife #terrorism #antifa pic.twitter.com/S05mXaNMC2

“This meets the criteria for domestic terrorism. The FBI and DOJ who refuse to handle it need to be fired and investigated.”
Following the assault, Harden said, “This is an intimidating act and a violation of the FACE Act. “America must establish a civilized order again. CompassCare respects women by giving them a real choice, and Antifa cannot stop us from doing this.
“The mother and the kid are equally valuable because they are all fashioned in the likeness of God. The power of God’s love overcomes fear.”
“Following the second attack on CompassCare, New York Senator Rob Ortt (R) urged Gov. Kathy Hochul to take action, describing the situation as “intolerable.”
“It is maddening to learn that early Thursday morning, there was yet another criminal incident at CompassCare in Amherst. Last summer, CompassCare was firebombed, leaving the building destroyed.”
At that time, I called on Governor Hochul to use her resources, including the New York State Police, to investigate this violent incident and provide the same level of security that other women’s health clinics receive – and ought to receive – in this state.
The Governor, unfortunately, ignored my request, and here we are again.This morning, I repeat my calls for the Governor to utilize all resources at her disposal, including the State Police, to investigate this incident and hold the perpetrators responsible.
Any criminal act against a women’s health facility, whether pro-life or pro-choice, is intolerable and must be treated with the utmost seriousness.”
After throwing Molotov cocktails into CompassCare’s Buffalo office on June 7, unknown assailants scribbled “Jane was here” on the building’s side, referencing the militant pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge.
This graffiti followed that incident. According to CompassCare, the attack hurt two firefighters and cost a half million dollars to repair.

Although CompassCare was firebombed last year, no one has been detained, and Harden has frequently accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of stalling justice and engaging in political games.
FBI Buffalo made a $25,000 reward offered to anyone who may provide the organization with information that results in arrests five months after the initial incident and one week after the midterm elections, in which abortion was a major issue.
With no arrests made, CompassCare stated in January that it was teaming with the Thomas More Society to employ private detectives to uncover the criminals.
“When private persons are left to carry out law enforcement duties, it is a sad day. The FBI should be the focus of all investigations if it is being utilized for political ends. Indicted for conspiring to deny pro-life Americans their rights, the organization should have its funding cut off,” according to Harden.

With worries that “another wave of pro-abortion Antifa violence was coming” because of a case in Texas that would result in the abortion pill being removed from the market, Harden claimed that he contacted the FBI on February 20 before his organization was attacked once more.
Harden claimed he didn’t get a reply.
Harden criticized the DOJ and FBI for “actively de-prioritizing investigations against pro-life organizations like CompassCare” after the attack.
“These inquiries are being conducted by the DOJ’s Civil Rights section, which is overseen by Kristen Clarke, a well-known supporter of Antifa and a vocal opponent of pro-life pregnancy centers,” he claimed.
“Attorney General Merrick Garland is defending her by ludicrously lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee and claiming that the FBI cannot make arrests because “those attacking the pregnancy resource centers…are doing this at night, in the dark…,” according to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
While denying that the FBI and DOJ are unequally enforcing the law, FBI Director Christopher Wray acknowledged at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing in November 2022 that roughly 70% of abortion-related threats of violence in the United States since the Dobbs decision has been against pro-life groups.
The DOJ indicted at least 26 pro-life activists in 2022. Only two pro-abortion activists seem to have received the same punishment, although pro-life organizations have endured more threats.
United States Attorney General Merrick Garland acknowledged that the DOJ had prosecuted more pro-life activists than pro-abortion extremists in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision.
He blamed the timing of alleged crimes as the discrepancy when confronted with those figures at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this month.

“I’ll admit that you’re completely correct: there are a lot more prosecutions related to the blocking of the abortion centers,” Garland said to Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). He continued saying this is typically the case because the activities were typically captured on camera at the time, in broad daylight.
“People who are targeting pregnancy resource centers—a horrendous act—are doing so at night, in the dark. We have devoted all of our resources to it. We’ve offered incentives for doing this. In order to find the perpetrators, the Justice Department and the FBI have reached out to Catholic and other organizations,” Garland continued.
Extremists who support abortion continue to target pro-life groups and places of worship. Since the Dobbs decision’s disclosure, 141 Catholic churches, 83 pregnancy centers, and pro-life organizations have come under fire.
