A Catholic parish church in northern Colorado known for its active pro-life ministry was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti over the weekend.
St. John XXIII parish in Fort Collins, about an hour north of Denver, was the latest target in Colorado following similar graffiti discovered at a parish in Boulder several days prior.
Images shared with CNA show red spray-painted inscriptions of “My Body My Choice” and a symbol that appears to be an “A” signifying “anarchy.” Police said the incident took place around 1:15 am on Saturday, May 7, and that some “exterior glass panels” were also broken.
St. John XXIII is located close to the campus of Colorado State University, and has served many of the college’s Catholic students since its founding in the 1960s. The parish is situated just around the corner from a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
