Pregnancy center near U.S. Capitol targeted by vandals

Police are investigating vandalism at a faith-based pregnancy center just blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

Washington Metro Police Department officers responded Friday morning to reports of damaged property after vandals splattered red paint on the front door of the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center and spray-painted “JANE SAYS” and “REVENGE” onto the building.

The investigation is ongoing as of Saturday morning.

The clinic’s director, Janet Durig, told The Washington Times that she suspected the incident was in response to the upcoming Supreme Court decision on whether to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

“I would assume that’s where it’s coming from,” she said. “Emotions are high during this time and so it just seems to be that it would be connected to that.”

The clinic is a Christian faith-based non-profit that offers pregnancy testing, counseling, parenting classes and supplies for new parents.

Several other pro-life organizations throughout the country have been vandalized in recent weeks in the wake of the leak of a draft Supreme Court decision that would overturn the 1973 decision.

Police have not identified a suspect.

Ms. Durig, who has run the organization for more than two decades, said this is the first time the clinic has been targeted.

She said even as emotions run high as the nation awaits the Supreme Court’s decision, she was heartened by the outreach she received from those offering support in response to the clinic being defaced.  

“It’s really drawn out many, many supportive people and we feel surrounded by a lot of them,” she said.
