Pro-abortionists have attacked pro-life centres around the US after the Supreme Court overturned its 1973 ruling on Roe v Wade.
The historic judgment removed the constitutional right to abortion across America, handing back power to individual states to legislate on the issue.
A Christian pregnancy centre in Colorado, Life Choices, was set on fire and painted with the words: “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”
In Arizona, the police used tear gas on pro-abortion protesters surrounding the state’s Capitol building. According to the politicians inside, they were not able to reach a safe location until a SWAT team started dispersing the crowd.
Arizona was one of eight states to stop performing abortions immediately following the Supreme Court’s judgment.
In Vermont, the State Capitol had a pro-abortion message painted on its door, with building damages amounting to $25,000.
The violence comes as several big US businesses announced that they will cover travel expenses for employees visiting another state to procure an abortion, if their resident state has pro-life protections in place.
The Bank of America, Netflix, and Facebook’s parent company Meta are among those who announced the measure. Google also told its US employees that they could move to another state.
Officials in over 30 states have claimed they will not prosecute doctors for performing abortions.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers said he “will provide clemency to any physician that is charged”, and the state of Minnesota pledged to shield women from legal consequences if they travel to another state for an abortion.
In the state of New York, Governor Kathy Hochul signed six pro-abortion Bills, which include legal safeguards for those involved with abortions.
In last week’s historic ruling, Justice Samuel Alito wrote: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision”.
The Christian Institute’s Ciarán Kelly welcomed the news, calling it a “historic day”.
“This is a ruling that recognises there is no constitutional right to abortion and hands abortion law back to state lawmakers. Many of them want to do more to protect women and the unborn and now they’ll be able to do that.
“In the generations to come there will be hundreds of thousands, even millions of people, that look back and realise that they owe their lives to this moment.”
