A network of pro-life pregnancy centers in New York that were attacked by pro-abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge blasted the FBI for failing to make arrests. Fed up with the agency’s fruitless investigation effort, the clinic hired private investigators to look into the attacks, Fox News Digital reported.
CompassCare, a pro-life health clinic with multiple locations in upstate New York, announced last week that it would partner with the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit law firm, to recruit private investigators to look into a firebomb attack against a Buffalo center that occurred in June.
Pro-abortion vandals, believed to be connected to Jane’s Revenge, shattered the clinic’s windows and set fires inside the building. Outside the center, the criminals also spray-painted “Jane was here.”
The vandals responsible for the destruction have not been apprehended.
CompassCare CEO Jim Harden told Fox News Digital that he is skeptical that the FBI is motivated to solve the case.
“It’s hard to know whether the FBI agents are being sincere when they say, ‘I’m a Catholic, and I really want to see these criminals brought to justice,'” Harden stated. “It only happened after they got tremendous pressure from the media and from politicians, senators and congressmen included.”
Harden stated that he believes the agency may be deliberately devoting resources elsewhere.
“What it appears to us is that they have made decisions about how they’re allocating investigative resources, and they have chosen not to allocate,” Harden added. “You’ve got 78 bona fide violations of the FACE Act on pro-life organizations specifically targeting them. We know they’re hate crimes. They fit that definition. Where’s the manhunt?”
According to Harden, the evidence suggests that the repeated attacks on pro-abortion centers might be an organized effort with ties to global anarchist and transgender movements.
“It does look like that this is not just a grassroots pro-abortion movement,” he said. “It seems to be much more organized.”
“My speculation is that if they make an arrest, they’ll be able to draw a straight line between the pro-abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge and government bad actors, including federal law enforcement, the DOJ, and pro-abortion politicians in charge of the Democratic Party,” Harden said.
“There’s some very, very disconcerting things that are going on, and the fact that the FBI has not made any arrests is only shame on them,” Harden added.
Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, told Fox News Digital that the investigation includes 78 attacks against pro-life clinics.
“Along with CompassCare and others, we’re looking to investigate connections here,” Brejcha said. “We have security video of attackers. We have license plates. We’re pursuing the kind of investigation that lawyers pursue when they’re looking to achieve justice on behalf of their clients, civil and criminal. So we’re not sitting on our hands just writing letters to the editor about it.”
Brejcha noted that the FBI has monitored the situation and “been responsive” but has failed to take action.
According to Brejcha, the Buffalo clinic had to take legal action against to FBI to get back surveillance footage from the attack that was turned over to authorities.
“I think the fact that they appointed pro-abortion zealots to head up the special unit within the Department of Justice means that their focus and their energies are in that direction,” Brejcha said.
“And justice is blind here in a different sense: It’s blind only in one direction. In the other direction, it’s actively working to perpetrate injustice against the pro-life movement, to intimidate and shut them down. I think that’s pretty clear,” he continued.
The FBI told Fox News Digital that the agency is still investigating the attacks against the pro-life pregnancy centers.
“The FBI continues to investigate a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers, faith-based organizations, and reproductive health clinics across the country, as well as to judicial buildings, including the U.S. Supreme Court,” the FBI stated.
“In general, FBI field offices conduct all logical investigative steps during the course of the investigation which can include offering a reward for information. In this case, FBI Buffalo is seeking the public’s help to identify the individuals responsible for the arson of the CompassCare Pregnancy Services Center and is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the arson,” the agency added.
