The FBI has joined local police investigating a suspect arson at at pro-life pregnancy center in Longmont, Colorado.
The center, Life Choices, sustained fire and heavy smoke damage, authorities said. The front of the building also was defaced with pro-abortion slogans, including the words, "If abortions aren't safe neither are you," written in script with black spray paint.
Longmont Public Safety responded to the fire Saturday at 3:17 a.m. MT.
The suspected arson happened in the wake of Friday's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the landmark abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Catholic churches, crisis pregnancy centers, and other pro-life groups have been on heightened alert in response to threats of retaliatory attacks by pro-abortion activists.
