WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — House Democrats refused to consider a resolution condemning the ongoing violence against churches and pregnancy centers across the country.
On Tuesday, Democrats unanimously voted to block House Resolution 1233, which called “upon the Biden Administration to use all appropriate law enforcement authorities to uphold public safety and to protect the rights of pro-life facilities, groups, and churches.”

“This has gotten out of hand,” Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana, who introduced the measure, said on the House floor. “Radical leftists were emboldened by the inaction of this body in the aftermath of the leaked opinion, and now they’ve targeted their violence against the very groups that care for women and their unborn children in their most vulnerable moments. It’s unconscionable.”
Johnson listed recent acts of terrorism at churches and pregnancy centers in a number of states, including Oregon, Maryland, Texas, Colorado, Virginia, Wisconsin, Alabama, Washington, Iowa, Washington, D.C., and Louisiana.
“This goes on and on,” Johnson said. “I’ve got pages and pages of these. It’s out of control.”
“America’s care pregnancy centers provide absolutely essential services in all 50 states,” he continued. “They serve millions of women every year. They’re supported by over 10,000 medical professionals.”
“When will this body stand up against the mob? When will we restore law and order?” he asked. “Our side is ready to act. We have an obligation and responsibility to do it.”
