    Oh, you mean those Antifa guys chanting to hang people and bringing along the stuff to do it? Funny how they called them that to shift the blame from their radical supporters I bet they learned how to make those nooses from their daddy and grandpa as they told stories of the good ole days.

    "Inside the 'fake clinics' where women are persuaded to carry pregnancies to term | Georgia | The Guardian" https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/aug/16/georgia-abortion-crisis-pregnancy-centers


    "Pregnancy center".

    Also you would be surprised about the hundreds of attacks in the past 50 years on actual pregnancy clinics from death threats to actual carried out attacks to the countless number of times using intimidation on the patients that never reach the mainstream news.

    Topless pro-choice protesters run onto court at WNBA game in Brooklyn

    https://nypost.com/2022/06/08/tople...ash-wnba-game-at-barclays-center-in-brooklyn/

    excerpt:

    A group of topless pro-choice protesters rushed on the court during Tuesday’s WNBA game between New York Liberty and Minnesota Lynx at Barclays Center.

    While some of the women — who took their tops off but covered their chests — rushed down to the court mid-game, others held up signs in support of the Roe v. Wade ruling.

    Video footage taken by onlookers at the game shows the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights protesters marching to the game holding up signs in support of abortion rights, while others were smothered in green paint.

    The women were eventually escorted out by security.

    No charges were made, according to the NYPD.

    One sign read, “Overturn Roe? Hell no!” while another read, “Abortion on demand & without apology.”

    After the game, the organization tweeted out a photo of the protesters who interrupted the game, writing, “This was the audience we wanted. We aren’t protesting to change the hearts & minds of woman-hating fascists. No.

    “We are calling on those who can stop the overturning of #RoeVWade: THE MILLIONS of ppl who support #abortionrights. YOU! No business as usual. Shut the country down!”



    Barclays Center did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

    Here is a more mainstream article on it: Jane's Revenge claims vandalism of Des Moines pregnancy center (desmoinesregister.com)

    They should be prosecuted, obviously. It's not just breaking and entering, vandalism, arson, and terroristic threat, it could qualify as terrorism. And I think their anger is mislaid and they are attacking pregnancy centers because they're soft targets, not because they're at fault for the SCOTUS ruling. It'll hurt women even more if they can't legally get an abortion and also can't go to non-profits for help with a pregnancy. And ultimately, they undermine the credibility of the pro-choice movement by resorting to crime and violence.

    well rather than just sitting home mired down in apathy, they got off their asses and lit the match at an actual pregnancy center. that's gotta count for something

    I believe the term for that is arsonist, not activist. I can see how those get confusing though. ;)
