SALEM, Oregon (LifeSiteNews) – The offices of Oregon Right to Life were attacked late Sunday night with “incendiary devices,” resulting in a small fire. 

On May 8, local law enforcement officials arrived on the scene at 10:40 p.m. According to police, someone threw Molotov cocktails after failing to break into a window. No one was in the building at the time. An investigation is currently underway to determine who perpetrated the attack. Police do not know how many people were involved.  

Lois Anderson, the executive director of Oregon Right to Life, released a statement the next day saying, “Understandably, our team is shaken up by this attack. We are committed to taking proper precautions to protect the safety of our staff as we move forward.” 

“We are thankful for the quick action of our first responders committed to maintaining a safe environment to operate in this community,” Anderson concluded.  

The attack occurred a week after a leaked draft opinion published by Politico indicated that a majority vote of the Supreme Court would overturn Roe vs. Wade, the decision that brought abortion on demand to the United States.  

When asked if the May 8 attack on the Oregon Right to Life offices was inspired by the Supreme Court draft decision, Anderson said, “We don’t know for sure because there was no graffiti or messaging left.”

“It’s hard to think that it wasn’t connected,” she added.  

“I think we have to make some assumptions that it was motivated … It’s hard for me to get my head around somebody wanting to do that.”

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

A growing number of attacks perpetrated by pro-abortion activists against pro-life organizations and Catholic churches have followed the unauthorized release of the draft opinion. 

An attack was perpetrated against Wisconsin Family Action’s headquarters earlier on Sunday when arsonists set fire to the building and wrote on the wall: “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”   

Attacks against pro-life crisis pregnancy centers (CPC’s) also have taken place in Portland since Politico published the draft opinion. According to pro-life activist Lila Rose, the attacks were carried out by Antifa. A pro-life social media account also said that Antifa published a list of CPC’s on twitter. 

 

Sunday Mass was interrupted  at Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral on May 8 when a group of pro-abortion activists attempted to stage a protest during mass. The protesters were escorted out by parishioners and security.  

 

The parish of the Sacred Heart of Mary in Boulder, Colorado, was vandalized last week, with someone smearing red paint on the hands and eyes of the statues of Jesus and Mary. Graffiti was also plastered on the walls, including the contradictory statement “Abortion saves lives.”
