Colombian mothers who received support from a pregnancy center sent a powerful message to abortion activists after they vandalized the pro-life organization this month: No one “forced” us to give birth.
On April 16, pro-lifers who run the ProMujer pregnancy center in Bogota, Colombia discovered that their building had been vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti, according to the Catholic News Agency.
Abortion activists painted “Here we force women to give birth” and “Be careful: forced motherhood” on the ground leading up to its doors.
The pregnancy center, part of the Moms 40 Coalition for Life Foundation, responded on Facebook by promising to pray for the “vandals who have hatred and destruction in their hearts.”
“Apparently, we’re doing great! Long live Christ the King,” the pro-life organization wrote.
News of the vandalism prompted a swell of support from the mothers and babies who received help from the pregnancy center. Soon afterward, the pro-life coalition’s Facebook page was flooded with photos and comments from the mothers and babies.

“The word of God has been fulfilled. My child’s life is a great blessing for our home,” a mother named Nancy commented, sharing photos of her baby.
According to ACI Prensa, many used the hashtag #NoMeObligaronAParir, which translates to “they didn’t force me to give birth.”
Another mother shared a photo of herself and her newborn, commenting, “#NoMeObligaronAParir They were by my side for [one of the] best decisions I have made in my life, and I would do it again a thousand times more.”
Other women volunteered to help clean up the graffiti, bringing their children with them.
Pro-life coalition leader Pamela Delgado told ACI Prensa that the campaign was the moms’ idea.
“The moms surprised me,” Delgado said. They told her: “What (the abortion activists) are saying isn’t true. Nobody forced us to give birth. We’re going to support the foundation. It’s not fair what they’re doing,” she said.
The pro-life coalition, an offshoot of 40 Days for Life in Colombia, provides support to mothers facing crisis pregnancies. According to its website, pro-lifers have helped save 546 babies from abortion since 2015.
Last week, the coalition asked for prayers as Colombia, like many pro-life countries, is facing intense international pressure to legalize abortions.
Often, pro-lifers are targets of harassment, threats and violence just because of their advocacy for unborn babies.
LifeNews.com recorded nearly 200 incidents in 2019 and 2020, including a bomb threat during a 40 Days for Life event in Minnesota, the brutal attack of an older pro-life man outside an abortion facility in San Francisco, a pro-life banner set on fire inside a Western Washington University building, and a man charged with pulling a gun on pro-lifers outside a Delaware abortion facility.
