Pregnancy Center Criticizes FBI’s Lack Of Communication On 2022 Firebombing

The FBI recently placed a billboard asking for information regarding the firebombing of a pro-life pregnancy resource center in Buffalo, New York, two years ago. While that sounds great, the problem is that authorities failed to alert the organization about the billboard or its placement, raising many questions and concerns.

CompassCare Pregnancy Medical Center staff were surprised to learn that the FBI put up a billboard offering a $25,000 reward for any information regarding the June 2022 attack on the building.

According to the pro-life center, it first noticed the billboard on April 1 but the FBI has refused to give the organization any information, including if there have been any leads regarding the attack. To make matters more frustrating, the billboard was placed in Rochester, New York, about 70 miles from the crime scene.

Rev. Jim Harden, the CEO of CompassCare, released a statement saying that the center’s supporters have questioned who paid for the billboard. The organization runs with the help of donations. Using donations to fund a billboard instead of helping women and their babies would not be a good look.

He also criticized law enforcement for seeming to take a lack of interest in finding who’s responsible.

“If the FBI has to resort to outdoor advertising to locate pro-abortion domestic terrorists, either they have forsaken forensic investigation altogether or are up to something more devious,” wrote Harden.

“Failure to enforce the law equally is a violation of the 14th amendment and represents an illegal act of oppression, not just of preborn boys and girls killed in abortion, but against those who seek to protect those same babies as endowed by their Creator with the inalienable right to life,” he continued.

Since the overturning of Roe v. Wade in 2022, there has been a significant increase in attacks on pro-life centers. The radical pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge took responsibility for the 2022 firebombing and also wrote “Jane was here” on the side of the building. The group is also responsible for several other firebombings nationwide.

CompassCare was also vandalized last March.

While several pro-life protesters nationwide have been charged and convicted under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, only a handful of pro-abortion protesters have been tried and convicted, sparking outrage among conservatives and pro-life advocates.

“Over 300 attacks, one indictment, a light sentencing for an uncooperative criminal who committed a verifiable act of domestic terrorism, coupled with FBI targeting of pro-life Christians with SWAT-like raids on trumped up charges, this billboard is icing on a mud pie,” Harden said.

The FACE Act prohibits the deliberate destruction or damage of all reproductive healthcare facilities, protecting abortion clinics, pregnancy centers and pro-life churches.

“The Biden administration has weaponized the FACE Act against peaceful pro-life sidewalk counselors and activists who want to save lives and change hearts and minds,” Advancing American Freedom Executive Director Paul Teller said.

Four pro-life activists were recently found guilty of violating FACE as they peacefully sat at an abortion clinic in Tennessee.

As the amount of attacks on pro-life institutions continues, one can only hope that the suspects will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.
