Shock: Pro-Life Action Ministries in Minnesota vandalized

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/23/17

Details: 

Someone sprayed graffiti on Pro-Life Action Ministries in St. Paul, including, “Another (expletive) mouth to feed,” “(Expletive) Trump” and an upside down cross, the group said Monday. The organization reported to police on Monday about 9 a.m. that their building at 1163 Payne Avenue had been vandalized overnight. The non-profit said it had not endorsed Donald Trump for president. Pro-Life Action Ministries’ leader, Brian Gibson, said he also received a harassing phone call on Sunday afternoon, the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. “What I find most disturbing is the hate speech indicated by the upside-down cross, reminiscent of the KKK,” Gibson said in a statement Monday. “Clearly, there are those among pro-abortion advocates who seek to threaten, harass and intimidate those who peacefully seek to protect innocent life. But let me make this even clearer, we are not intimidated. Our work to return protection to the defenseless will continue unabated.”
