INTERVIEW | CEO of Pregnancy Center Calls Out FBI, Justice Department for Failure to Act After Second Attack
The leaders of the pregnancy help center CompassCare in Buffalo, New York, were concerned they might face another attack amid court proceedings over access to abortion pills.
The Rev. Jim Harden, CompassCare CEO, contacted the FBI in February raising those concerns. He says the FBI failed to answer him.
"I asked the FBI," Harden said, "if they were going to be issuing any kind of threat alert to Christian pro-life people and organizations, and whether or not they're going to be adding protection, security protection to that judge [handling the abortion pill case]. They did not respond."
On Wednesday, CompassCare was attacked for the second time within the past nine months.
Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, surveillance footage shows an individual wearing a hoodie walk up to the front of the pregnancy center and spray paint the word “Liars” over the CompassCare sign. The individual then turns and walks away back down the street.
“This fits the definitions of domestic terror," Harden said, adding: “Those in the FBI and DOJ who refuse to treat it as such need to be fired and investigated."
This was the second pro-abortion attack CompassCare has faced. In June, the radical pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge took responsibility for firebombing the pro-life center and spray painting the words “Jane was here” on the side of the building.
The FACE Act, or the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, prohibits the intentional destruction or damage of reproductive health care facilities, which includes both abortion facilities and pregnancy centers.
President Joe Biden’s DOJ charged 26 pro-life activists with FACE Act violations in 2022, but did not charge any pro-abortion activist with FACE Act charges last year, despite Catholic Vote trackers reporting more than 100 apparent pro-abortion attacks on pro-life pregnancy resource centers and churches across the nation.
Harden joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain why he thinks Biden’s DOJ and the FBI have failed to take action against those who are attacking pro-life organizations and churches.
