Pro-Abortion Property Attack On Vermont State House

June 25, 2022

Pro-abortion vandalism hit the Vermont State House in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade and sending abortion law back to the states.

“If abortions aren’t safe you’re not either,” someone spraypainted in black on the front portico of the building shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday, June 25, according to Vermont Capitol Police.

The vandal or vandals also broke seven windows across the front of the building, doing about $25,000 in damage, police said.

The damage delayed the planned opening of the state capitol to its summer tour season on Saturday, to allow for cleanup.

The attack outraged the state’s lieutenant governor, Molly Gray, a Democrat and a supporter of legal and publicly funded abortion.

Her office window was among those broken.

“I am alarmed by these attacks on our State House — my workplace — and condemn them in the strongest possible terms. Vermonters are feeling deep anger and frustration in the wake of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling. I share this frustration. However, threats of violence and destruction of property are absolutely unacceptable and never the solution,” Gray said, according to Vermont Digger, which reported the incident early Saturday afternoon, June 25.

Gray is running for the U.S. House of Representatives, hoping to replace Congressman Peter Welch, a Democrat, who is retiring.

Vermont is one of the most abortion-friendly states in the union. The state has no statutes regulating abortion. Voters are set to decide on a referendum in November 2022 seeking to enshrine a right to “reproductive autonomy” in the state constitution.
