Several Catholic churches in Mexico were vandalized with pro-abortion and anarchist symbols over the past week.
Catholic News Agency reports the latest vandalism occurred June 8 at the Xalapa Cathedral and the Expiatory Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the state of Veracruz. The vandalism took place during a march protesting police violence.
On the walls, vandals spray-painted an anarchist symbol, “pedophiles,” “oppressive state,” “rapists” and “war on the state and capitalism,” according to the report. They also damaged a statue of the Blessed Virgin, the report states.
A week earlier, five other churches in Xalapa also were vandalized with pro-abortion phrases, including “abortion will be legal,” “keep your rosaries off our ovaries” and “get angry sister,” the report continues.
Violence by pro-abortion activists has become increasingly common. LifeNews.com recorded more than 100 reports of assault, vandalism, harassment and other incidents in 2019. Our news outlet began tracking these reports after pro-life organizations expressed alarm about an uptick in violence in recent years.
