Vandals destroy Bronx pregnancy care center; “They even stole our Pampers.”

They even stole the Pampers. Click all photos to enlarge.

Chris Slattery, founder and president of EMC Frontline Pregnancy Care Centers, a group of 12 pccs located throughout the New York City area, told LifeSiteNews.com he thought it was likely “drug addicts seeking some quick cash” who burglarized and vandalized EMC’s South Bronx location last night.

Not so fast. With Slattery and EMC at the center of the opposition against NYC’s recently passed hostile law forcing pccs to post signage that they do not commit abortions, my first thought was the vandals were hostile pro-aborts. Would run-of-the-mill ne’er do wells go so far as to tear up the floors?

National Right to Life crashes Catholics United call supporting pro-life Obamacare Democrats

Oh, this is rich! I can’t tell you how much this sort of chutzpah warms my soul! I’ve always thought highly of Doug Johnson. Now I’m a groupie. From the Washington Independent, moments ago:

With a US District Court slated to rule today on the Susan B.

KTLA covers police hoser incident; DA will not press charges

Wow. KTLA in Los Angeles ran an excellent story last night about this past Sunday’s police hosing incident at Ventura, CA’s, First Assembly of God Church.
The story accurately portrays Ventura police officer (“and a member of this church”) Jon Hixson as a major jerk, showing all the right clips from pro-life activist Todd Bullis’s video. (The backstory about the pro-life picket begins here.)

 

I think KTLA got Todd’s mission pretty much right in its 1-sentence summary of why his group was there in the first place….
