(LifeSiteNews) — A pro-life pregnancy center firebombed by pro-abortion terrorists and now suing police for failure to return surveillance footage thinks that this may be an example of political bias on behalf of the FBI.
In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Reverend James Harden, the president and CEO of CompassCare Pregnancy Services in Buffalo, New York, said the FBI has been vilifying pro-lifers instead of protecting them from terrorism.
“I know it sounds dystopian, but that’s exactly what’s happening,” Harden said. “We’re facing, essentially, a moral hurricane in our country. The FBI has gone from abdicating their duty to provide equal justice under the law to pro-life people like us, to downright attacking us.”
Harden said that there have now been over 70 attacks on various pro-life pregnancy centers in the United States, and yet not a single person has been arrested by the FBI for involvement in such terrorist activity.
“I mean, look, it’s naïve to think that the largest law enforcement agency on the globe, with the best forensic technology known to man, doesn’t know any, not a single person who is engaging in these attacks,” he said. “If it’s not the FBI doing it, they certainly know who it is and they’re choosing not to make arrests.”
“Jane’s Revenge is the abortion terrorist group, a pro-abortion terrorist group that’s taken responsibility for these attacks and they’re getting a pass,” Harden continued. “A pass.”
The reverend said the pro-abortion terrorist group is like “the Democratic Party’s new KKK,” which has set itself up against pro-life pregnancy centers.
“The new cross in their front yard is burning down pregnancy centers,” he said. “But instead of denigrating the personhood of black people, they’re denigrating the personhood of preborn boys and girls and anybody who seeks to stand up for them.”
Harden said that the pro-life pregnancy center filed a lawsuit against the Amherst Police Department in September for refusing to return their video tapes, and that they are currently amid litigations just to see their tapes. He confirmed that the excuse to not return the surveillance tapes was because it might inspire “right-wing terrorism.” He added that the police department is not only refusing to give them their tapes but also vilifying the pro-life movement without cause.
“The town attorney representing the police department went so far as to say, to characterize pro-life people supporting us as AK-47 gun-toting people going around bombing and killing people,” he said. “They’re vilifying us.”
Carlson said the facts in this case are “stunning to the conscience.”
“It’s utterly politicized law enforcement,” he said. “It’s the deepest level of corruption. It’s totally unacceptable. You can’t have a country run like this.”
