Clearway Clinic, a pro-life pregnancy centre in Worcester, Massachusetts, reported on its blog that it was vandalized at around 2:30 a.m. on July 7. The damage included “smashed glass for two doors and three windows” and the words “Jane’s Revenge” spray-painted on the sidewalk in front of the facility. The graffiti suggests that activists affiliated with the pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge are responsible. Jane’s Revenge has claimed responsibility for multiple acts of vandalism against pro-life pregnancy centres and churches and declared “open season” on such organizations after they failed to head the pro-abortion organization’s call to disband within 30 days. Jane’s Revenge took credit for the vandalism at Clearway Clinic and Problem Pregnancy, another pregnancy centre in Worcester, in a July 8 blog post on the anarchist website Abolition Media.
The pro-abortion group claimed the employees of the “fake clinics” “lie to vulnerable pregnant people about abortion to confuse them and convince them not to seek abortions.” They bragged that employees of the clinic “discovered this morning that their buildings had been redecorated with paint and broken glass.” Birthright St. Paul, a pro-life pregnancy centre in St. Paul, Minnesota, announced on Facebook July 6 that it had been vandalized that day. The Facebook post documented graffiti on the exterior of the facility that read “Abort America” and “Blood on your hands.” The phrase “Jane’s Revenge” was also spray-painted on the building. A subsequent Facebook post showed additional vandalism at the facility, which included the spray painting of statements declaring “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you” and “Jesus loves abortion” on the side of the building.
Heartbeat of Miami Pregnancy Help Medical Clinics stated on Facebook that “pro-abortion terrorists” caused thousands of dollars worth of damage at their pregnancy centre. Images of the vandalism accompanying the post revealed a symbol for the anarchist movement painted on a sign advertising the clinic’s services and the defacement of the building with additional graffiti promoting pro-abortion messages. Holy Family Catholic Church in Hillsborough, North Carolina, shared that the church building had been vandalized. A local news report compiled by WSMV-TV detailed an attempted arson at Hope Clinic for Women, a pro-life pregnancy centre in Nashville, Tennessee. The report stated that the Metro Nashville Police Department officers responded to a burglar alarm that went off at 1:30 that morning. “Police found a front window smashed and there was an unlit Molotov cocktail inside,” the WSMV anchor said.
A local news report in San Luis Obispo, California, included video footage of vandalism at the Tree of Life Pregnancy Centre, a pro-life pregnancy centre in Paso Robles, California. One of the windows at the facility was defaced with the anarchist movement symbol while the sign advertising the business in another window had an “X” drawn through it. Additionally, the front door of the business had the letters “JR” painted on it, possibly signifying that the pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge may be responsible for the vandalism. The Paso Robles Police Department told the news outlet that the vandalism occurred between the evening of June 24, hours after the publication of the Dobbs decision, and the morning of June 26. Police also reported that the Tree of Life Pregnancy Centre had previously received a threat from Jane’s Revenge. In addition to the graffiti attack, the pregnancy centre also suffered broken windows.
St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Reston, Virginia, was the first church vandalized by pro-abortion activists following the Dobbs ruling. The Fairfax County Police Department released a statement on June 26: “Fairfax County Fire and Rescue responded at 6:45 Sunday morning to a call for smouldering mulch at the St. John Neumann Catholic Community Church. Fire and Rescue personnel detected an accelerant was likely used in the fire and observed graffiti spray-painted on a sign at the entrance of the church. The remarks spray painted were related to the recent Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling.” Social media images issued following the release of the Dobbs decision reveal the vandalism of a sign advertising Informed Choices Medical Clinic in Iowa City. The Twitter user who shared images of the sign defaced with the pro-abortion slogan “My Body My Choice” characterized Informed Choices Medical Clinic as a “Fake Clinic.
Blue Ridge Pregnancy Centre in Lynchburg, Virginia, became the first pro-life pregnancy centre to find itself subject to vandalism following the Dobbs decision. The Lynchburg Police Department reported on Facebook on June 25 that “it was investigating property damage and vandalism that occurred overnight at the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Centre.” The department stated that “upon arrival, officers found that the building had been spray-painted with graffiti, and multiple windows had been broken out.” Images of the vandalism show the words “Jane’s Revenge” spray-painted on the ground in front of the facility. The pro-abortion group took credit for the attack in a blog post published on Abolition Media Monday. A still photograph of security camera footage outside the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Centre shows “four masked individuals” stationed outside the facility at 1:21 a.m. on June 25.
