The Buffalo-area office of CompassCare—a pro-life pregnancy center—was firebombed early in the morning of June 7, 2022. Two firefighters were hospitalized after working to put out the fire, and the building suffered significant damage. A group of pro-abortion vigilantes that has engaged in arson attacks on other pro-life facilities around the country has taken credit for the firebombing.
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms is outraged and saddened by the arson attack upon CompassCare’s Buffalo-area office. We call upon our fellow New Yorkers to keep CompassCare, its staff, and all pregnancy center personnel in prayer as they cope with this blatant effort to intimidate them. Unfortunately, we are not surprised by this news. The recent outbreak of cowardly pro-abortion arson attacks upon pro-life facilities across the United States is unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue. The group that has taken responsibility for several of the attacks must be shut down. If that does not happen, more attacks on New York’s pro-life facilities could occur. Furthermore, the attacks could escalate and lead to injury or loss of life.
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms calls upon law enforcement to investigate this crime without fear or favor, and to bring the persons responsible for it to justice.
