The news website LifeNews released this Tuesday (5) a report that points out that at least 17 attacks against pro-life organizations and churches have been recorded in the United States since the country’s Supreme Court overturned the case law in Roe v. Wade, the week before last, and returned to US states the freedom to legislate on abortion as they wish. According to LifeNews, these numbers include cases of arson and/or vandalism. Among the attacks highlighted in the report is the one perpetrated against a pro-life pregnancy center in Longmont, Colorado, which was set on fire and where the attackers spray-painted the message: “If abortions can’t be safe, neither can you. ”.

LifeNews figures do not include reports of pro-life journalists and activists being attacked in pro-abortion protests, illegal roadblocks and vehicle vandalism carried out by abortion advocates, nor a cyberattack on pro-life organizations reported by website The Byte.

LifeNews noted that dozens of other attacks had been reported in the past few weeks since a draft of the court’s decision was published by the American press in early May.

Due to the attacks, Republican politicians have increased security for pro-life organizations and churches, a request that had already been made by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) after the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft decision.
