The pregnancy center, which is located in the southwestern part of the state, posted pictures of vandalism on their Facebook page and said “Friends, please pray!!! Our building was vandalized last night. We are dealing with the cops and will still see customers, but we need your prayer support!! #WeWillStand!#MAPS.”
Kristi Brown, the center’s executive director, told CNA that half of the paint was cleaned Tuesday night and the financial cost of the damage is still being calculated.
Brown said staff were heartbroken to discover the vandalism on Tuesday morning and called the pro-abortion posts “hateful and evil”.
On Tuesday, another pro-life pregnancy center in Amherst, New York, was also defaced with spray paint depicting pro-abortion messages and set on fire.
The vandalisms are the latest in a string of attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers. Pro-abortion violence against the centers quickly increased when a draft U.S. Supreme Court ruling was leaked last month indicating the court may intend to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that legalized abortion federally.
