BALTIMORE (LifeSiteNews) — While some pro-life cities have voted in recent months and years to become “sanctuaries” for the unborn, others are moving in exactly the opposite direction.

On Monday, the Baltimore City Council unanimously approved a resolution to make their city a “sanctuary” for women seeking to kill their unborn children.

The resolution, advanced by council members Zeke Cohen and Phylicia Porter, will establish a fund to bankroll organizations offering abortions and “other women’s health services” to Baltimore women, local news outlet WBFF reported.

According to Cohen and Porter, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, a Democrat, supports the measure.

In the aftermath of the leak of the Supreme Court majority opinion draft overruling Roe v. Wade, lawless vandals backed by the abortion lobby and pro-abortion politicians have launched riots and violent attacks on pro-life entities across America, from pregnancy centers to churches, and even targeted Justices' homes. 

This widespread, organized effort not only sets a dangerous standard for how groups and individuals may opt to stage demonstrations going forward, but begs the question of how the pro-abortion crowd would behave if and when the Supreme Court officially overturns Roe later this summer.

And, worst of all, the White House has largely turned a blind eye to these riots, with Joe Biden -- who at one time claimed to be personally opposed to abortion due to his Catholic faith -- now acting as the foremost advocate for unfettered abortion access in America.

Biden's nonexistent response must be addressed, and the White House needs to know that the American people demand better from their supposed "leader."

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to stop beating around the bush and finally issue a formal statement condemning the violent riots and attacks on pro-life institutions across our country in the wake of the leaked Supreme Court majority opinion draft overturning Roe v. Wade.

Over Mother's Day weekend, pro-abortion attacks broke out across America, with increasingly depraved activists targeting pregnancy centers, pro-life advocacy organizations, and churches with either disruptive demonstrations or, in some cases, vandalism and outright violence.

Among the most barbaric occurrences was the vicious attack on Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life group headquartered in Madison, where vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into an office window, started a fire on one of its walls, and left a threatening graffiti message reading "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either."

Review a FULL LIST of other appalling attacks HERE.

They even descended upon the homes of Supreme Court Justices like Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts, who appear poised to formally issue the final blow to Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks, after publishing a map with their private addresses.

The case, which was decided nearly 50 years ago in 1973, saw members of the bench fabricate a constitutional "right" to abortion, depriving individual states from crafting their own laws to protect life. However, should Roe, as expected, be overturned, the matter of abortion would be returned to the states, where it always belonged, giving lawmakers the ability to propose legislation that would either place strong restrictions on the procedure or, in some cases, ban it outright.

And while, of course, freedom of speech must be protected and defended for all Americans, demonstrations that devolve into vandalism, rioting, the use of intimidation tactics against members of the judiciary (or anyone else, for that matter), or violence in any form must NEVER be tolerated.

But the White House seems to be taking a different approach...

It wasn't until Monday afternoon that Press Secretary Jen Psaki finally acknowledged the threat posed to Supreme Court Justices by out-of-control pro-abotion activists, claiming that "judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety."

This is true, but it took Psaki an entire week to make any semblance of a definitive statement about the White House's position on this urgent matter. In fact, Psaki previously refused to discourage the targeting of Justices' homes when asked, insisting that pro-abortion groups were staging "peaceful protests" instead; she even failed to condemn the leak itself -- an unprecedented breach of trust and rejection of institutional norms that could permanently damage the standing of the court and its ability to function as an apolitical body.


And, of course, Joe Biden, himself, has been virtually silent on the matter, failing to effectively speak out against these riots and reassure the American people that those who seek to vandalize property and perpetrate violence will be held legally accountable for their actions by the Department of Justice.

This is entirely unacceptable behavior from a commander-in-chief, and as political allies like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (rather ironically) incite insurrection by labeling the Supreme Court's pending decision a "call to arms," the American people must demand that Joe Biden clarify where he stands, and whose side he's really on.
 

The rule of law must be upheld and applied equally, and that means calling out radical anti-life rioters and ensuring there are consequences for their violent outbursts and destruction of property across the country.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to condemn these rioters, and direct the U.S. Department of Justice to take action that will hold them accountable for their actions under the law.

Thank you!

It’s unclear how large the abortion fund in the city will be. However, Cohen said it will consist of a combination of taxpayer dollars from the city and philanthropic donations, which will be funneled into pro-abortion organizations like The Baltimore Abortion Fund.

Cohen has argued the resolution was necessary in light of the recent unprecedented leak of a Supreme Court draft majority opinion earlier this month.

According to the leaked document, at least a 5-4 majority on the Court is angled to overturn Roe v. Wade — the 1973 decision that created a federal “right to abortion” — when it rules in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

If the Court overturns Roe, individual states will once more be allowed to create their own laws regarding abortion, choosing to permit, restrict, or outright ban the practice.

In response to the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade, blue cities like Baltimore, along with Democrat-led states like Colorado and California (which this month established a $125 million spending package to secure abortion access), have moved to hedge against pro-life legislation and shore up protections for the abortion industry.

Meanwhile, pro-life states and municipalities have conversely enacted safeguards for the unborn.

A bevy of cities and counties in states, including Texas, Ohio, Iowa, and North Carolina, have voted to become “Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn,” in a growing grassroots campaign which predates the Supreme Court’s decision to take up the Dobbs case.

In addition to the creation of sanctuary cities protecting the unborn, over a dozen states already have “trigger laws” on the books that will work to outright ban abortion as soon as Roe is overturned. In all, roughly half of all U.S. states are poised to at least severely restrict abortion if the federal “right to abortion” is struck down.

Baltimore’s Monday decision to become an abortion “sanctuary” highlights the fact that a post-Roe America will become a legal patchwork in which some localities ban abortion while others actively finance and promote it.

That fact has led many pro-lifers to emphasize that the overturning of Roe v. Wade will be just the beginning, not the end, of the pro-life movement.
