After Roe v. Wade was overturned, people in Colorado broke into and burned down a Christian pregnancy center.
A Christian crisis center in Colorado for women who are pregnant was vandalized and set on fire early Saturday morning, a day after the US Supreme Court ruled that abortions were no longer protected by federal law.
At 3:20 a.m., police were called to a fire at Life Choices in Longmont. When they got there, they found the building on fire and covered with graffiti about the controversial decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
One message with the circled “A” anarchy symbol said, “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”
Since May, when word got out that the court planned to overturn the 1973 ruling, the saying has been written at dozens of pro-life centers.
“Bans off our bodies” was also written on the building’s entrance walkway, and police photos show that another anarchy symbol was painted on the building’s front.
On its website, Life Choices says that it gives women alternatives to abortion and faith-based counseling after an abortion.
Fire and smoke caused a lot of damage to the building, and police were looking through surveillance footage in the area to find the person or people who set it on fire.
If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it is likely that about half of the US states will ban abortions. This would not affect Colorado right away, though, since pregnant people there already have a lot of access to the procedure.
