Much more violence against Pro-life people than against Pro-choice since the Supreme Court Leak on May 3rd: 135 Attacks on Pro-life people between the Supreme Court Leak on May 3rd and September 24th, 2022, Only 6 attacks were identified in the other direction

Oct 31, 2022 | Original Research

Political violence is central to so much of the political debate in the US. Since a draft Supreme Court opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson overturning Roe v. Wade leaked in early May 2022, pro-abortion violence has again become a focus of the abortion debate. As a result, crisis pregnancy centers, religious institutions, and other pro-life entities faced attacks in the form of vulgar graffiti, property damage, threats, theft, and even arson. This list covers pro-abortion attacks since the leak.

First, we identified 135 attacks on pro-life entities and people between when the leak occurred and September 24th, 2022. By contrast, only six cases involve pro-choice people attacked. We obtained the cases from news searches and various sources, but the pro-abortion organizations refused to respond to repeated requests for additional cases despite efforts over three weeks. 

The bottom line is that after the Dobbs decision was leaked, there was over 22 times more violence directed against pro-life groups than pro-choice organizations. However, if the media is less likely to cover violence pro-life organizations, the 22 times estimate will underestimate the relative violence against these groups.

Violence involving abortion has become even more of an issue as news stories focused on the threat of increased violence against abortion providers after the Dobbs decision leaked. For example, a headline in The Guardian reads:” ‘People want me dead’: abortion providers fear violence after Roe overturned.” Other news stories also focused on the increased threat of violence directed against abortion providers, but not on violence against people on the other side of the debate. The issue has also gotten attention with the recent arrest of Mark Houck for shoving someone at an abortion clinic to the ground. The man he pushed was reportedly harassing Houck’s son, but the FBI sent 25-30 yelling agents with guns drawn to Houck’s home at 7:05 a.m. There is other evidence that the US DOJ is selectively targeting pro-life leaders.

The US Department of Justice keeps an up-to-date list of recent violence cases against reproductive health care providers. Still, it doesn’t collect similar data for cases against pro-life centers. The US DOJ provides information on only one case of property damage against a Planned Parenthood facility in July. Still, there may be other cases, so we did extensive news searches and contacted various organizations on both sides of the debate.

From a Research Associate at the CPRC:

On October 3rd, 2022, The Daily Beast reported that “incidents of arson, vandalism, blockades, bomb threats, and death threats have doubled compared to May through August 2021, NAF’s (National Abortion Federation) data shows.” Besides, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) did release its 2021 statistics on violence and disruption against abortion providers on May 19th, 2022. Thus, I contacted the NAF to learn more about such incidents in 2022.
When I called the operator at the NAF, they directed me to email the DC Abortion Fund (DCAF). I emailed the NAF and DCAF seven times between October 10th and October 25th. As of October 31st, while I got automated responses indicating they had received the messages, I never received any further response.

We felt it was important to identify and read each case to ensure they were comparable.

To search for the cases against either pro-choice or pro-life groups, I googled with keywords such as “Anti-abortion attacks,” “Attacks on Abortion Providers,” “Violence to abortion clinic,” “Pro-abortion attacks,” and “Attacks on pregnancy centers.” Most of the results are related to the cases that happened last year or earlier. The most relevant info I got is Daily Beast’s October 3rd article. As it mentioned National Abortion Federation (NAF) collected such cases, I tried to reach out to NAF for more information with no response.

Regarding attacks on pro-life groups, I also found sources that tracked cases, such as the Catholic News Agency and the House Republican Committee on Energy and Commerce

NAF released a report for 2021, but it only provided summary statistics and not a list of the cases upon which the report was based. We also reached out to the author of the Daily Beast piece, Decca Muldowney, but she informed us that she also didn’t see a list from the NAF, though it doesn’t appear she asked for it. The NAF 2021 report received extensive news coverage (e.g., NBC News), but not of these other stories provided any list of recent cases. Unfortunately, NARAL only collects cases up until 2016.

The media has uncritically accepted pro-choice claims of violence without asking for a list of cases. The CPRC’s past research has shown that the news media has engaged in a similar false narrative of white supremacists doing mass public shootings.
