The latest in a growing string of vandalism targeting pro-life displays, a Canadian pro-life group said its billboard was vandalized twice this year.

The Red Deer Advocate reported the vandalism late last month in the Alberta town. The billboard shows the images of a smiling infant and an older lady, accompanied by the words “Let the beat go on.” Red Deer Pro Life paid for the ad.

In September, a local man spotted the vandalism and reported it to the pro-life organization. It appears someone splattered the billboard with black paint.

Jackie DeGroot, a secretary for the pro-life organization, said someone vandalized the billboard in July as well, scrawling a pro-abortion slogan across it. She said they paid $1,200 to have it replaced over the summer.

“Instead of destroying our right to free speech,” she said abortion activists should pay for their own billboards.

She told the local news that they notified the police, but the chance of finding the culprit does not seem likely because no one saw the vandalism occur.

LifeNews has observed an alarming uptick in reports of harassment, assaults, vandalism and other incidents targeting pro-lifers.

Last week, LifeNews reported about another vandalism of a pro-life display at a church in Pennsylvania. And in September, Prolife Across America, which sets up billboards to reach pregnant mothers across the country, reported an alarming increase in vandalism this year.
