Another pro-life pregnancy center was vandalized over the weekend in Texas as abortion activists protest a leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that overturns Roe v. Wade.
The Loreto House in Denton, Texas, was spray-painted with pro-abortion graffiti including, “forced pregnancy is murder” and “not a clinic,” the Catholic News Agency reports.
Denton Record-Chronicle confirmed the vandalism occurred sometime between Friday night and early Saturday morning, and police have been contacted.

Randy Bollig, executive director of the ministry, told the newspaper that whoever committed the vandalism also spray-painted over the three security cameras.
“I am optimistic that I might be able to catch something on one of the other cameras or something before they actually spray painted it,” Bollig said.

Catholic Bishop Michael Olson of the Diocese of Fort Worth encouraged people to pray for healing for the person who committed the crime.
“Please pray for the person who perpetrated this, for their interior healing and moral conversion,” Olson wrote on Twitter.
CBS News reported at least two police officers were injured when a pro-abortion rally turned violent in Los Angeles. During another protest in Washington, D.C., a Daily Wire reporter witnessed abortion activists shoving, spitting on and screaming obscenities at a small group of pro-life advocates who were counter-protesting.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas condemned the bullying at a 11th Circuit judicial conference Friday in Atlanta, Georgia. As a society, “we are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like,” Thomas said.
“We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that,” Thomas continued, according to reports.
Fox News reports at least two pro-abortion groups have been calling for churches, especially Catholic Churches, to be the target of abortion activists’ outrage. One group also posted the addresses of the Supreme Court justices online to urge people to protest outside their homes.
“The leaked draft memo that states the Supreme Court has struck down #RoeVWade is an ATROCITY but It is not yet law & doesn’t have to be, but what they plan to do & will do if WE don’t stop them. Rise up! & RAISE HELL!” the group Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights wrote on Twitter.
Abortion activists are trying to intimidate the Supreme Court justices to change their mind and uphold Roe after the leaked draft opinion showed the majority voting to overturn the infamous 1973 ruling. The draft is not final, judges can change their minds, and it is not clear when the high court will issue its final ruling on the abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, but many believe the court will overturn Roe and allow states to protect unborn babies again.
Polls consistently show that most Americans support stronger legal protections for unborn babies than what Roe allows. LifeNews highlighted 11 recent polls here.
Since 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
