BUFFALO, New York (LifeSiteNews) — The CEO of the Buffalo pregnancy resource center firebombed by Jane’s Revenge, a radical pro-abortion group, said the attacks prove that the pro-life movement is winning.

CompassCare CEO Jim Harden told radio host Glenn Beck on Monday that leftists attacked his center because it does not agree with the “elites’ position” that women need abortion.

“Glass was broken and fires lit because we do not comply with the ruling elites’ position that we should be referring and providing for abortion,” Harden said on Monday. “Women do not feel like they have a choice when they’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, they feel stuck, trapped, like they’ve got no choice, like they need to have an abortion.”

“And what we do is we erase the need for abortion by transforming a woman’s fear into confidence with ethical medical care and community support,” he declared.

Harden said the pregnancy center is still reaching out to women while the building is being rebuilt and questioned why politicians would not speak out against the attacks on pro-life clinics.

“What’s bothering me right now is that the politicians are refusing to denounce the violence against  pro-life pregnancy centers. They’re refusing to say ‘Hey, this is wrong. Violence is wrong everywhere, all the time. This is not how you solve problems,'” he said.

“And their silence can only be interpreted as complicity, and it’s emboldening these terrorists,” Harden warned. He said Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul has “refused to denounce the violence against pro-life pregnancy centers.” He criticized her for legislation that targets pregnancy centers for investigation for not referring women for abortions.

“The abortion industry is scrambling, and the reason why they attacked us is because what we’re doing to reduce abortion is working,” Harden said. He said CompassCare has “a model to expand services and infrastructure throughout New York state to handle the increased load” from women coming from other states to potentially have an abortion.

Both Beck and Harden agreed that fighting abortion should not be a “divisive” issue but should unite people.

“Abortion represents a flash point of culture that forces us to think about the value of humanity. You know abortion represents a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to be human under God,” the pregnancy center CEO said. “If we take the lessons that we’re learning right now, society can can rehumanize.  We can return to civilized order.”

“The only way to do this is to follow in the footsteps of Christ” by helping those in need, Harden said.
Jane’s Revenge does not plan to back down on its violence, recently releasing a message declaring “open season” on pro-life groups.
“We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti,” the extremist group threatened.
