The left is determined to stigmatize and denigrate crisis pregnancy centers, with very few efforts from media partners to present them as positive. This pieceJan Crawford CBS Mornings), it’s been left to outlets such as our sister site CNS News to cover both what these centers have experienced over recent months and especially since Roe V. Wade’s overturning on June 24.
Melanie Arter was the senior editor and had one of the two stories Tuesday that the liberal media refused to report on. “Pregnancy Care Center Director: We’ve Been Forced to Spend Up to $150K Just to Protect Ourselves.”
Arter covered the story of Alternatives Pregnancy Center in Sacramento, California, which was profiled at a Senate Judiciary Committee wild hearing by Heidi Matke, their director.
The director of a pregnancy care center in Sacramento, Calif., said Tuesday that her she has had to spend $150,000 in “valuable resources” to protect themselves from violent assaults and vandalism, including someone armed with a machete, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.
“Just last week, as the exhibit shows, a man approached our care center with an armed machete. Our security personnel have had to be available 24 hours per day. We’ve had to reinforce doors and bullet-proof our walls. We’ve had to paint our building with anti-graffiti coating. We’ve added cameras, armed our staff with pepper spray and stopped running our mobile clinic, because of threats of violence,” she said.
Janey Olohan, a CNS News intern, filed an article about one of the most recent instances of violence against Worcester’s crisis pregnancy centers.
“Mass. Crisis Pregnancy Center Vandalized, Calls on State Officials to ‘Publicly Condemn Domestic Terror Attack,’” Olohan claimed that what was hitting two centers in the area were: “the head of one of them is calling…‘domestic terrorism.’”
“Both Clearway Center and the nearby Problem Pregnancy clinic were hit. Glass doors and windows were smashed in, paint was splattered, and the entrances to the clinics were spray-painted in black with the words, ‘Jane’s Revenge,’ the name of a radical pro-abortion group, which has yet to publicly claim responsibility for the attacks,” Olohan added.
Olohan mentions that Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America documents, going back to May’s Dobbs opinion leak “at least forty-five violent assaults on pro-life-affiliated groups.”
