Pro-Abortion Extremists Firebomb Buffalo Pregnancy Center

Albany, NY—The Buffalo office of CompassCare—a pro-life pregnancy center—was firebombed early this morning. No one was injured, but the building was significantly damaged. Early indications point to the involvement of a group of pro-abortion vigilantes that has engaged in similar arson attacks on other pro-life facilities around the country. Jason J. McGuire, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, made the following remarks:

“New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms is outraged and saddened by the arson attack upon CompassCare’s Buffalo office that occurred early this morning. 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.”

McGuire continued, “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 stopped. 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.”

“Additionally, Democratic politicians like Governor Kathy Hochul and Attorney General Letitia James must end their hyperbolic rhetoric regarding reproductive rights. Abortion is a hotly contested political issue in our state. If the temperature is not lowered before the Dobbs decision drops, I fear what further violence may follow,” McGuire concluded.


New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms is a statewide public policy organization that represents New York’s evangelical Christian community.
