Abortion Activists Vandalize Pro-Life Billboard in Pete Buttigieg’s Hometown, For a Third Time

February 16, 2020

A streak of vandalism has besieged pro-life ads in South Bend, Indiana, for the last five months.

Last week, the latest incident occurred when the local group, St. Joseph County Right to Life, discovered spray paint on their pro-life billboard. The billboard’s message simply reads: “Alive. Human. Unprotected.”, and directs viewers to RoevWade.us, a project of St. Joseph County Right to Life which provides information on the infamous Supreme Court decision.

Vandals spraypainted the billboard with an anti-police acronym “ACAB” and another obscure message which appears to read, “Kill 200.”

This is the third incident of vandalism that has struck St. Joseph County Right to Life in recent months.

The first occurrence was last September, just after the discovery of 2,246 aborted babies’ remains at the home of local abortionist Ulrich Klopfer. In the days following the news, the pro-life group discovered spray paint on four of their bench ads near the local abortion facility. Those ads promoted life-affirming resources such as Abortion Pill Reversal and Women’s Care Center, a local pregnancy help center.

The second incident was in December, shortly before Christmas. Again, the pro-life group found spray paint on six of their bench ads promoting resources for women in need.

“This is concerning,” said Jackie Appleman, executive director of Right to Life Michiana. “The vandalism is escalating from simply hiding helpful resources to promoting violence. Unfortunately, this isn’t surprising because the abortion movement is intolerant to other views and promotes violence.”

The vandalism comes amidst tensions over the controversial opening of an unlicensed abortion facility in South Bend. In response to the facility’s opening, pro-life groups have been promoting alternatives to abortion throughout the city. Women’s Care Center, a local pro-life pregnancy help center even opened a new location right across the street from the facility—something which South Bend Mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg attempted to stop.

As concerned as St. Joseph County Right to Life is about the upswing in tensions, they remain mission-focused.

“Nothing the abortion movement does is going to stop us,” says Melanie Garcia, outreach manager for St. Joseph County Right to Life. “Nothing’s going to stop us from being out there and educating the public on the value of life and violence of abortion.”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
