BUFFALO, New York (LifeSiteNews) — Unsatisfied with the FBI’s response, a pro-life pregnancy center will hire its own investigative team to look into who attacked last year.
“Over 78 Pro-life pregnancy centers have been attacked, including the firebombing of [our] pro-life medical network’s Buffalo office, injuring two firefighters,” CompassCare noted in its January 3 news release. However, the group feels that the FBI does not have a strong interest in finding the culprits. As a result, it will partner with the Thomas More Society to hire private investigators to find out who attacked its office.
“The FBI, after 161 days and much pressure from media and Congressional Judiciary hearings, listed the perpetrators of CompassCare’s firebombing on its Most Wanted website while both refusing to call the attack an act of domestic terror and list the other 77 attacks against Christian pro-life pregnancy centers at all,” a news release noted. “After 6 months, the arrest tally remains at zero and death threats by pro-abortion domestic extremists continue.”
The cost of the investigation could be underwritten if the culprits are identified, allowing CompassCare to collect the FBI’s $25,000 reward.
CEO Jim Harden stated:
If the FBI is interested in quelling the nationwide hate crimes against Christian pro-life organizations, they would offer a reward for information leading to the arrests of all 78 attacks, not just for the pro-abortion terrorists who firebombed our facility. It is a sad day when private citizens are left to do the work of law enforcement. If the FBI is being used for political purposes, all investigative efforts should turn on them. The organization should be defunded and those involved indicted for conspiracy to deprive pro-life citizens of their rights.
“I predict in 2023 that the pro-abortion empire and those politicians and big corporations that protect it will increase attacks against pro-life people and organizations,” he said, based on the current political situation.
New York officials did reach out to CompassCare after the attack – but only to investigate it for not aborting babies.

America’s best loved pro-life priest, Fr. Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life as well as the President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, has been laicized (dismissed from the priesthood) by order of Pope Francis.
SIGN: This outrageous attack on the pro-life movement by the so-called “listening Church” is a mockery of justice. Stand by Fr. Pavone ASAP!
A December 13 letter to all bishops in America, sent from the Pope’s representative in America – the Papal Nuncio Fr. Christophe Pierre – said that Fr. Pavone was laicized for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop.”
In a separate statement, the papal nuncio wrote that the Prefect of the Dicastery for the Clergy – the head of the Vatican’s department dealing with priests – said that there was “no possibility of appeal” of the decision.
DEMAND JUSTICE: Pope Francis' totalitarian regime cannot strike down faithful pro-life priests like Fr. Frank Pavone without international outrage!
The statement calls Fr. Pavone, “Mr. Pavone.”
“Since Priests for Life, Inc. is not a Catholic organization, Mr. Pavone's continuing role in it as a lay person would be entirely up to the leadership of that organization,” the statement says.
The statement notes that the decision on the matter by the Dicastery for Clergy was issued on November 9, but Fr. Pavone had not heard of the decision from the Vatican until CNA called him for comment.
SIGN AND STAND UP NOW: DEMAND THAT POPE FRANCIS IMMEDIATELY STOP HIS ATTACKS AGAINST FAITHFUL PRIESTS!
If Pope Francis and this Vatican regime can get away with expelling faithful priests like Fr. Frank Pavone, then the Catholic Church may truly be entering the darkest period of her existence!

Pro-abortion activists continue to rely on violence
Violence from pro-abortion activists has continued since the May 2022 leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision which reversed Roe v. Wade.
Since then, pro-abortion activists have protested outside of the homes of Supreme Court justices, in violation of federal law, and one even traveled from California with the clear purpose of killing Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Last week, police arrested a woman for throwing a thermos of coffee at peaceful pro-lifers praying in Illinois in protest against a new abortion facility.
