Two pregnancy resource centers vandalized with pro-abortion messages in Texas city

Published on

Two pro-life pregnancy centres in Denton, Texas, were vandalised over the weekend with radical pro-abortion messages, defacing the front of both PRCs and their signs. The actions came on the heels of a leaked Supreme Court opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, indicating that the Court may overturn the infamous Roe v. Wade abortion decision that forced legalised abortion on the nation in 1973.

The Woman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center (W2W) and Loreto House were both spray-painted with the words “Not a Clinic,” likely fueled by pro-abortion claims that falsely portray pro-life pregnancy resource centers as “fake. The words “Forced Birth is Murder” were also spray-painted on the brick of the Loreto House facility.

Both pregnancy centres had surveillance cameras that documented the crimes.

A spokesperson for the Denton Police Media Relations Unit responded to a Live Action News request for comment by email, saying

Incident reports #22072478 (Loreto House) and #22072504 (Woman to Woman) were taken on the morning of Saturday, 7 May. At the time of the first report, Loreto House representatives had not yet provided video footage of the incident. After taking the report at Loreto House, officers proceeded to Woman to Woman and documented similar graffiti. At the time of the report, officers were unable to speak with representatives of Woman to Woman. Based on the available evidence, the estimated loss due to criminal mischief was greater than $750 and less than $2,500 in both cases. No other reports of this nature have been filed. In an abundance of caution, directed patrols of area churches were conducted. Additionally, several churches hire private security or off-duty personnel.

“According to our cameras, it appears to have happened in the early morning hours of Saturday the 7th,” Ramona Davis, executive director of the Woman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center (W2W) in Denton, told Live Action News. Davis said their cameras caught two people on video; one doing the spray-painting while the other was in the parking lot.

W2W was founded over 30 years ago in 1986 and offers free services including pregnancy and STI testing, medical and community referrals and services, options counselling and mentoring, abortion recovery, childbirth and parenting education classes, among other services.

In 2004, W2W officially opened a resale shop; the proceeds from sales go back into W2W’s operating budget, keeping their services free to the community. W2W has two locations, but only one was vandalised.

Davis told Live Action News that she met with police late Monday afternoon to file a report and estimated the damage at between $3,000 and $5,000 because both sides of the sign were damaged.

Randy Bollig, President of Loreto House, informed Live Action News that he had filed a report with the Denton Police over the weekend. However, he was informed on Monday afternoon that the case had not yet been assigned to a detective. Bollig informed Live Action News that, based on the video surveillance footage, the individual responsible for the vandalism appeared to be a young woman.

“The pro-abortion crowd is in a frenzy and they vandalized Loreto House last night.” Today, a large-scale protest rally was held at Denton Town Square, which resulted in considerable disruption. Bollig, in an email released to his supporters, stated that he was present at the event and that he was not harmed.

In light of the recent events, Loreto House has expanded its services to address the needs of the community. These include: The Loreto House email also states that the facility offers limited obstetric sonograms, including transvaginal sonograms that can detect a fetal heartbeat at just under six weeks gestation. Additionally, the email notes that the facility provides pregnancy testing, vital signs, and STI testing. Finally, the email indicates that the facility offers abortion pill reversal.

Bollig believes that the vandalism was likely perpetrated by a student who attended the pro-abortion rally later that day on the Denton square.

Denton is the site of two colleges: the University of North Texas (UNT) and Texas Woman’s University (TWU). The latter institution houses a collection of records from Sarah Weddington, who argued for abortion in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case in 1973.

“I arrived at Loreto House on Saturday morning at approximately 8 a.m. and observed the incident,” Bollig stated. The incident occurred on Saturday morning at approximately 3 a.m. The victim was likely a college student. She proceeded to walk up from the south, accompanied by a backpack, and parked her vehicle in a location situated a short distance away.

Bollig estimated the damage to be at least $2,500, with the potential for higher costs if the brick and stone that the vandals painted must be replaced. Bollig observed that the incident constituted a felony.

During the day on Saturday, Bollig informed Live Action News that numerous vehicles and individuals drove by. He asserted that some individuals had stopped, taken selfies, and laughed.

One pro-lifer even praised the vandal, writing on Twitter, “this person’s act warmed me…”

“I have given the video to the police,” Bollig said.

Loreto House was founded 15 years ago and the centre serves 30-40 women a day, according to Bollig.

Nationwide, pregnancy resource centres provide free services to women and families, serving approximately 2 million people each year and providing approximately $270 million in free services to communities, including ultrasounds, STD/STI testing, pregnancy tests, prenatal and parenting education, and material assistance. These much-needed places of help are staffed by more than 69,000 pro-life employees and volunteers, and medical services are provided by 10,000 licensed medical professionals, who currently outnumber abortion facilities about 3 to 1.
