Her Pro-Life Center Was Attacked by Pro-Abortion Thugs. She Fears It's 'Going to Get Worse.'
Across the nation, pregnancy resource centers are under fire. Pro-abortion radicals are increasingly vandalizing these safe havens for women experiencing unplanned pregnancies, smashing their windows, spray-painting vulgarities on their walls, and even firebombing them.
The most recent target of this senseless violence and vandalism by pro-abortion extremists was the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, which was hit early Saturday morning.
Susan Campbell, the center's executive director, is incredibly disheartened by what happened.
"We're a service that's well-known, and so our community is loving and kind and supports us at every level. We were shocked to be the target of the vandalism," she says. "We were the only center in Virginia that was hit [after Roe v. Wade was overturned], and we were just deeply saddened by that."
Regrettably, Campbell doesn't think that her center will be the last to be vandalized.
"I don't think that it's going to stop, and I think that it's only going to get worse from here, simply because of the overturning of Roe v. Wade," Campbell says. "But we've been praying for this for a long time, and we're not intimidated or dissuaded from our mission."
Campbell joins the show to share her story and offer a message of hope to those mothers and mothers-to-be looking for assistance in what can be the toughest time in their lives.
