A second pro-life maternity center serving mothers and babies in need was vandalized this week in Michigan, the latest in dozens of attacks on pro-life organizations and churches since May.
Live Action News Tuesday confirmed the vandalism at the Pregnancy Care Center in Redford, Michigan. Earlier in the day, LifeNews reported another destruction at the Lennon Pregnancy Center in Dearborn Heights.
The Redford maternity center had broken several windows and glass doors, and pro-abortion graffiti was written on the walls, with the words “This is a fake clinic” and “Jane,” the report said.
Carol Beeskow, office manager at the Pregnancy Care Center, told Live Action News that police are investigating and will be closed for clearance until next week.
“We have many large windows at the front of the building. They smashed glass doors,, and the metal door at the back with a glass center was also smashed. It was all the windows in the middle,’ Beeskow said. “Fortunately, it was all double-glazed. They have not broken them.”
The pro-life nonprofit provides free pregnancy tests, diapers, formula, clothing, other baby items, counseling, and referrals to help mothers choose life for their babies. To donate or learn more, visit RedfordPCC.com.
According to Live Action News, the radical pro-abortion anarchist group Jane’s Revenge is said to have taken credit for both vandalism.

Abolition Media, which has been used multiple times to send messages by Jane’s Revenge, called the news “Fake Clinic Attacked in Detroit,” where they forwarded a statement emailed to the blog by the perpetrators. It read: “On the night of 6/6, a gang of criminal gays smashed the windows of two fake abortion clinics in the Detroit area and left messages’ if abortion isn’t safe, neither are you’ and ‘fake clinic’. Jane will take revenge.’
This week, the Lennon Pregnancy Center in Dearborn Heights also had smashed windows and doors and the threat “If abortion isn’t safe, neither are you” sprayed on a wall.
Gary Hillebrand, chairman of the center’s board of directors, said the crime hurts families in need the most. Last month, he said they helped 97 moms, dads, and babies by providing free diapers and formula, ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, parenting and financial classes, and more.

Michigan President Barbara Listing’s Right to Life urged authorities to prosecute the vandals to the fullest extent of the law. She also asked Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Reproductive Freedom for All coalition to condemn the ongoing violence.
““Pro-abortion activists often argue that pro-lifers don’t support women or children after birth while also destroying these centers that do all that and more daily,” Listing said. “Pro-lifers will continue to fight for life, and the violence will not deter us. We are resilient and will withstand any adversity that comes our way.”
Since May, five pro-life offices have been targeted by arson, and dozens of pro-life organizations and churches have been vandalized. Police said an alleged murderer with a gun was arrested outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month after the man said he planned to kill the judge.
According to Axios, a recent Department of Homeland Security report warned that radical abortion activists could burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and kill judges and their clerks if the court overthrows Roe. The report indicates that these pro-abortion extremists also plan to attack churches and other places of worship.
