A Catholic church in Pennsylvania was vandalized with pro-choice graffiti over the weekend as the abortion debate escalates around the country, following the passage of a major abortion law in Alabama.
Parishioners at Notre Dame de Lourdes parish in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania were greeted at Sunday Mass by messages that had been spray-painted on the church's doors and outside walls, according to CBS Philly.
A message painted in black on the front doors read: "You do not have the right to decide how others live." Another message on the side of the church read: "#ProChoice."
