Pregnancy centre vandalized amid late-term abortion debate

February 01, 2019 - 3:13 PM

CULPEPER, Va. - Authorities say a Virginia pregnancy centre has been vandalized days after a debate over late-term abortion in the state capital sparked controversy nationwide.

Police said in a statement that the vandalism reported early Friday at the Pregnancy Center of Culpeper included spray-painted messages on the building and signs and a broken window. Images from the scene show the messages include "YOU HATE WOMEN" and "FAKE."

The centre is one of the Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia. The Christian non-profit's website says it is "dedicated to women and families facing unplanned pregnancy" and doesn't perform or refer for abortions. President and COO DJ Carter says they haven't experienced vandalism before and he's unsure of the vandal's motivation. The organization is changing its name to Thrive Women's Healthcare.
