Damage to the property of the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center that occurred Saturday evening is under investigation, the Lynchburg Police Department said in a release. The incident comes two days after the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade.
Officers responded to reports of damaged property at 3701 Old Forest Rd. at 10:40 a.m. They found the center had been spray painted and had multiple windows broken.
Photos of the damage show one piece of graffiti reading, "If abortion ain't safe, you ain't safe!"
The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center does not provide abortions but the website says it is "dedicated to helping men and women faced with an unplanned pregnancy."
