Since the draft opinion overturning Roe v Wade was leaked, left-wing activist groups have become more aggressive in their attempt to stop pro-life legislation and activism.
After the leak, protesters attacked innocent churchgoers and defaced a rosary in front of a Catholic church.
They also protested outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices, with one protester attempting to murder Justice Kavanaugh and getting on to his property with a weapon.
Earlier this week, left-wing groups placed ‘bounties’ on Supreme Court Justices, paying activists $50-200 to give the group their location.
Now, a Pro-Life clinic director at a ‘crisis pregnancy center’ in California testified in front of the Senate that pro-life clinics have seen a dramatic increase in violent attacks ever since Roe was overturned.

A pro-life women’s medical clinic in California has spent $150,000 to boost its security in the face of overwhelming violence following the Supreme Court’s abortion decision overturning Roe v. Wade, according to the facility’s executive director.
“Pregnancy care centers from coast to coast are being targeted for violent assaults of vandalism, and hateful attacks online and in the media,” Heidi Matzke, executive director of the Alternatives Pregnancy Center in Sacramento, California, told a Senate hearing on July 12.
“Just last week,” she added, “a man approached our care center with an armed machete.”
Threatened by violence, the clinic has taken steps to secure its premises and safeguard its staff, Matzke said.
“We have been forced to hire 24-hour on-site security. We have had to reinforce doors and bullet-proof our walls. We’ve had to paint our building with anti-graffiti coating,” she continued.
“We’ve added cameras, armed our staff with pepper spray, and stopped running our mobile clinic because of threats of violence.”
