Police investigate fire at Colorado pregnancy center | Health and fitness
LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — A weekend fire at a Christian pregnancy center in north-central Colorado is being investigated as a possible arson, Longmont police said.
The Life Choices fire was reported at 3:17 a.m. Saturday, hours after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and said abortion laws would be decided by the states.
The front door was broken and the facade of the building had been spray-painted with the words “if abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.” On the concrete porch were the words “bans from our bodies.”
The building suffered a fire and extensive smoke damage.
Life Choices is a “Christ-centered ministry” that offers free services related to pregnancy and sexual health, information on reversing the effects of abortion pills, and post-abortion support for guilt, shame, anxiety and depression, according to its website.
Life Choices executive director Kathy Roberts said the center was devastated and stunned “by this chilling act of vandalism”. The attack, she said, affects people who need support, such as pregnancy tests, parenting classes and financial assistance, the Times-Call reported.
