On June 3, 2022, I received a phone call from a neighbor of the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center, whose operations I run. I was left speechless at the news that our center had been vandalized — something that had never happened before in my 20 years as its executive director — with at least a gallon of blood-red paint splashed across the front of our white entrance door, and the words “Jane Says Revenge” in black spray paint across the sides of our building.
In disbelief I stared at this threat against our center, our staff, and the families we help, and tried to wrap my head around what motivated the perpetrators to do these crimes. Why would someone target us when all that we offer, day in and out, is tangible help for families — specifically women who come to us because they wish to keep their babies and need diapers, clothes, formula, cribs, and other necessities to do so?

Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center, while not currently providing medical procedures such as ultrasounds, provides faith-based counseling to expectant mothers who may be considering abortion.
The center was hit with vandalism in the wake of the Supreme Court leak of the opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. They were hit with red paint, eggs, and graffiti reading “Jane Says Revenge.”
Janet Durig, executive director of Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center, told Fox News Digital the center’s staff felt “violated” by the vandalism and it “comes back to people misunderstanding what pregnancy centers like ours do”
