An unknown abortion activist vandalized a church with pro-abortion slogans over the weekend near Philadelphia.

The vandalism is just the latest in a growing spate of attacks against pro-lifers.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports someone noticed the spraypaint on the church around 9 a.m. Sunday at the Notre Dame de Lourdes Roman Catholic Church in Swarthmore.

The words “You do not have the right to decide what people can do. #ProChoice,” were written in black spraypaint on the doors of the church. Another exterior wall also had “#ProChoice” painted on it, according to the report.

Local police said they are investigating.

Here’s more from The Blaze:

Father Joseph Devlin reported the incident to local authorities, who are investigating the incident. The outlet reported that investigators have obtained security video from an adjacent church school that reportedly captures the vandalism incident on camera.

The church’s parishioners visited the church later that day to remove the graffiti.

This is not the first incident that Philadelphia-area pro-lifers have experienced recently. State Rep. Brian Sims, an abortion activist and Democrat, recently filmed himself bullying several pro-life women and girls who were peacefully praying outside an abortion facility in the city and then posted the videos online. Sims even offered money for their names and addresses. He still has not apologized for his actions.

In other parts of the country, pro-lifers have been victims of physical violence, vandalism and threats. Last week, someone vandalized a Right to Life of Michigan office after lawmakers passed a bill to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions. Several pro-lifers also have reported being physically assaulted.
