Nearly all House Democrats voted against a resolution condemning attacks on pro-life facilities and churches on Wednesday.
The resolution was introduced following a report from the Family Research Council found that there have been at least 420 hostile acts committed against primarily churches in America over the past five years. 57 of those incidents were “pro-abortion acts of hostility,” which surged last year ahead of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
The House passed the resolution 222 to 219 Wednesday with just three Democrats voting for it: Reps. Vicente Gonzalez (TX), Chrissy Houlahan (PA) and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA).
The resolution “condemns recent attacks of vandalism, violence, and destruction against pro-life facilities, groups and churches” and “calls upon the Biden Administration to use all appropriate law enforcement authorities to uphold public safety and to protect the rights of pro-life facilities, groups, and churches.”
In May of last year, a draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion aiming to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.
Following the leak, a May 13 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo obtained by Axios warned that pro-abortion acts of violence were going to increase and that extremists were threatening to burn down the Supreme Court building and murder the justices and their clerks.
Acts of violence against pro-life facilities did surge, and less than a month after the DHS memo, an armed man allegedly attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the Supreme Court’s intention to overturn Roe v. Wade.
