Baton Rouge – This morning, Woman’s New Life Clinic in Baton Rouge was attacked allegedly by Jane’s Revenge, a dangerous pro-abortion group that targets pregnancy centers. The group is responsible for other attacks across the country including arson and firebombing. The messages, pictured above, plastered on the building included the number “1312” and the phrase, “ACAB,” which is an acronym for “All Cops Are Bastards.” The messages also included the words “abortion is a right.”
Woman’s New Life Clinic (WNLC) is a professional medical and mental health clinic with locations in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. They provide free, nurturing care to women in unplanned pregnancies as well as additional low-cost women’s health services, such as STI testing and treatment, well-woman care, urgent gynecologic care, and more.
Allison Millet, CEO of Woman’s New Life Clinic, said the following on the damage to the Baton Rouge clinic, “While we are saddened by the attack on our Baton Rouge clinic, we are most devastated that the damage will hurt our ability to serve women. We have already seen this morning how these threatening actions have impacted patient appointments. Women visiting our clinic are looking for assistance in their moment of need. We call for peace and respect so we can focus on serving the needs of women in southeast Louisiana.”
Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life, said on news of the attack, “It is evident through this attack, and others like it, that pro-abortion groups lack genuine care for women in crisis. Their answer is always more abortion at all costs. By perpetuating violence, they directly violate the women they claim to help by harming the ability of clinics like Woman’s New Life Clinic from helping patients with essential support for their family. “
He added, “Woman’s New Life Clinic serves women with life-affirming solutions rather than victimizing them further through the violence of abortion. It is a disgrace that any group, regardless of their position on abortion, would harm women with their destructive behavior. We call on local law, state, and federal law enforcement to investigate this matter and hold the perpetrators accountable in order to prevent further violence.”
