Pregnancy care centers from coast to coast are being targeted for violent attacks.
Heidi Matzke is the Executive Director of Alternatives Pregnancy Center in California. She spoke to members of the U.S. Senate claiming that misinformation stemming from the Roe v. Wade decision is leading to attacks on pregnancy centers like hers.
“We have been forced to hire security because of threats of violence,” said Matzke.
Heidi also shared an image of a man with a machete at her center’s door right before they opened for the day. A security guard was able to derail that attack but it still rattled the facility. Meanwhile in the wake of overturning Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion advocates are now looking to the House.
That’s where a bill allowing pregnant women to cross state lines to obtain an abortion is expected to be up for a vote. The bill is an attempt to preempt any states who might try to prevent abortion tourism now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned.
The vote in the House could come down as soon as Friday.
