After over 300 attacks on pro-life entities, the Erie County, New York District Attorney’s office secured the first criminal conviction of an attacker who pled guilty to defacing the private property of the office of pro-life medical network CompassCare. The perpetrator was originally charged with a class E felony, but pled guilty to disorderly conduct on September 15, agreeing to pay restitution. On the same day, the House Judiciary Committee requested the appearance of Assistant U.S. Attorney General Kristen Clarke—in charge of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice—to answer for unequal enforcement of the law, aggressively indicting peaceful pro-lifers while ignoring organized pro-abortion fire-bombings on pro-life groups.
CompassCare CEO Rev. Jim Harden said, “Wherever one stands on abortion, attacks on the constitutional rights of pro-lifers constitute an attack on the Constitutional Rule of Law.”
