    House Democrats blocked a GOP resolution Tuesday to condemn violence against churches and pro-life centers following numerous attacks in recent weeks.

    Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) introduced House Resolution 1233, which sought to condemn "the recent attacks on pro-life facilities, groups, and churches."

    Johnson took to social media to blast the Left's silence regarding the recent pro-abortion attacks on churches and pro-life centers.

    "Ever since the Dobbs decision, crisis pregnancy centers have been subjected to a nationwide spate of violence and vandalism, that has been met with silence from President Biden and Democrats," he tweeted. "Enough is enough."

    In another recent floor speech, Johnson called out one of his Democratic colleagues for saying, "Thank God abortion is still legal."

    "Please, don't come on this floor and thank our Creator for your zeal to terminate the innocent lives that he has created. God have mercy on us," he said.

    Acts of vandalism and arson have occurred at numerous locations since the leak of a Supreme Court opinion concerning the overturn of Roe v. Wade. In early June ahead of the verdict, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center in Asheville, North Carolina, was vandalized.

    "APD Patrol Officers were called to the Mountain Area Pregnancy Services business on 1710 Old Haywood Road around 7:20 a.m. Tuesday morning to investigate the report of vandalism. Upon arrival, Officers found that someone had spray-painted the business with red graffiti, with the threatening wording, 'If abortions aren't safe, neither are you!' and an anarchist symbol on the front of the building," law enforcement's press release stated.

    "They also found the wording, 'No forced birth' on the side. Red paint was sprayed throughout, and windows were broken, which occurred sometime overnight Monday," it added.

    Following the Court's June 24 ruling, attacks spread, including at the Life Choices pregnancy center in Longmont, Colorado.

    "The building sustained fire and heavy smoke damage," police said of the pregnancy center. "At the arrival of police and fire staff, the front of the property had been vandalized with black paint. This fire is being investigated as arson."

    The center's front door was also broken and the building was spray painted with the words "if abortions aren't safe neither are you," as well as the words "bans off our bodies."

    Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, was also vandalized following the Court's decision.

    Jane's Revenge, a movement that released a recent manifesto calling for "action" against the pro-life movement, has claimed responsibility for some of the attacks.

    "We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat. We did not want this; but it is upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionally. We exist in confluence and solidarity with all others in the struggle for complete liberation," members of Jane's Revenge said in a June letter.

    "Our recourse now is to defend ourselves and to build robust, caring communities of mutual aid, so that we may heal ourselves without the need of the medical industry or any other intermediary. Through attacking, we find joy, courage, and strip the veneer of impenetrability held by these violent institutions," the letter added.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.
