I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for pregnancy centers, pro-life activists, churches, the Supreme Court Justices, and anyone else who is being threatened by pro-abortion activists. Protect the unborn, God, and heal our nation of this deep divide.

As senseless violence over the Supreme Court’s leaked decision continues, we must pray for peace and protection.

From LifeNews. Radical abortion activists who firebombed the office of a pro-life groups in Wisconsin and Oregon, firebombed a pregnancy center in Buffalo, New York, and who have vandalized over a dozen churches and pregnancy centers have struck again.

Now, not even a week after abortion supporters firebombed the Buffalo pregnancy center, another pregnancy center in Gresham, Oregon has been set ablaze.

The Gresham Pregnancy Resource Center was set on fire Saturday morning, according to officials with the pregnancy centerFrom initial investigations by Police and Fire authorities, it appears an incendiary device was thrown through a window.  

Our alarm system immediately alerted Fire and Police, and they arrived very quickly and extinguished the fire. It was mostly contained to one room, but damage there was extensive and there is additional water and smoke damage in other parts of the building. Nobody was hurt,” Luke Cirillo, CEO, said in a statement.

Cirillo said he and his staff will not back down from their commitment to helping pregnant women and children both born and unborn.

When our SE Portland Pregnancy Resource Center was vandalized a few weeks back, I said at the time that we had an incredibly resilient team. It remains true. I am deeply encouraged by the way our staff grieves honestly and prays genuinely for the hearts of the people perpetrating these crimes.

At the same time, this hurts. Arson is particularly violent and destructive, and it compromises a sense of safety for our team and for the people we serve. On top of that, this will require temporary closure of our center until we can make repairs.  

The kind of outrage that’s being directed at us is based on a complete misunderstanding and misrepresentation of who we are and how we have served the hundreds of thousands of people that have come to us over the decades. This moment in our culture is volatile, and the spillover into violence is deeply destructive to the fabric of our communities. We reject and refuse to have any part in the culture of hate. Jesus has modeled a different way. It’s the way of love. That narrow way includes, as a challenge to us all, the love of those who hate us. 

This incident is happening just as we were going to begin a full renovation of the Gresham Center. When we do reopen, we plan for the center to be a welcoming, warm and beautiful space where we can again serve our clients with all the care we always have.  

We are absolutely committed to continuing our work to serve women who may be pregnant with dignity and respect, providing practical and professional clinical services. 

The Seattle field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) said it is investigating the arson. Graffiti on the building left by the arsonists refers to abortion activists who have struck elsewhere around the country.

Jane’s Revenge has taken responsibility for a firebombing of a pro-life organization in Madison, Wisconsin in May, and it could have been responsible for bombing the offices of Oregon Right to Life during the same month. It has also vandalized and destroyed multiple churches and pregnancy centers.

In Wisconsin, the pro-life group that was the subject of a firebombing is offering a reward to help find and arrest the radical abortion activist who firebombed its office last month.

As LifeNews reported, abortion activists firebombed a pro-life group’s office in Madison, Wisconsin. A leftist radical threw Molotov cocktails into Wisconsin Family Action’s office in the capital city and a picture of the destruction shows the office heavily damaged from the bomb.

The pro-abortion terrorists responsible also vandalized the building and left a threatening message saying “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”

A radical pro-abortion group named Jane’s Revenge eventually said it was responsible and is threatening increasingly violent attacks that extend beyond Wisconsin if its demands are not met, writing, “Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings….”

The abortion activists responsible have engaged in more violence and vandalism since then. Two more pregnancy resource centers were vandalized this month in Oregon, the latest in dozens of attacks on pro-life organizations and churches. Dozens of attacks on pro-life and Christian groups have occurred since news broke earlier this month about a leaked draft ruling that shows the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

The threat of violence comes as leftists plan to blockade and attempt to shut down the Supreme Court in two weeks as a decision is expected soon on whether the nation’s high court will overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect babies from abortion.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a report last week warning that radical abortion activists plan to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their law clerks if the court overturns Roe v. Wade. The report indicates these pro-abortion extremists also plan to target churches and other places of worship with violence and vandalism.

Even some prominent pro-abortion groups are using words that hint at possible insurrection and violence. Earlier this month, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, executive director of Women’s March, warned that abortion activists will be “ungovernable” until the government legalizes abortion on demand.

Other pro-abortion groups have been calling for churches to be the target of abortion activists’ outrage. And one group posted the addresses of the Supreme Court justices online to urge people to protest outside their homes.

LifeNews has been keeping track of reports of pro-abortion vandalism, violence, threats and other incidents since the leak. There have been 59 cases of such pro-abortion violence and intimidation…

Jeremiah 19:1-15 – The Valley Of The Slaughter
The Word Brings Salvation

Read what the Lord God told Jeremiah. For decades, we have defiled our nation by sacrificing our sons and daughters. We have become the Valley of Slaughter. Will the Lord remove from America, the voices of joy and gladness as well as the voices of the bridegroom and bride? Will America become a ruin? Jesus Christ took the sins of eternity upon Himself to bring to abundant life those who confess Him as Savior and believe God raised Him from the dead.

Dear Abba Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I call out to You in repentance for the death of so many innocent children. Please deliver us from abortion and for those who champion death, draw them near. So near Father, that they call on the Name of the Lord for salvation. Let them see Jesus. Let them feel Jesus. Let them repent in His Name and be saved. Amen

Joel 2: 32 And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has promised, among the remnant called by the LORD.
Romans 10:11-13 It is just as the Scripture says: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.”For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and gives richly to all who call on Him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The recent manifestation of the Left’s atrocities exactly mirror Satan’s manifesto to steal the option of pro-life solutions, kill the hopes of reaching hurting people, and destroy our trust in Jesus. Don’t let him…

    Exactly, Eddie. Satan’s hands are all over this. He is leading the Left around by the nose.
