An emergency pregnancy center vandalized by threats


ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) – The Asheville Police Department is looking for the person(s) who vandalized a crisis pregnancy center by spray painting threatening graffiti on the building and smashing windows.

Police said they were called to Mountain Area Pregnancy Services on Old Haywood Road around 7.20am on Tuesday to investigate the vandalism report.

Upon arrival, officers said they found red graffiti with threatening words that read, “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you!” and an anarchist symbol on the facade of the building. They also said they found the wording “No forced birth” on the side. Red paint was sprayed everywhere and windows were smashed, which happened on Monday night.

We’re told the attacker may have injured himself because forensic techs were able to obtain blood samples left by the shattered window and bloody trail.

Mountain region pregnancy services posted on their Facebook page that they will still see customers while the police search for the suspects.

The facility says it is a faith-based outreach ministry that partners with churches in Western North Carolina in caring for, counseling, and educating women and men regarding or impacted by pregnancy at risk.

This facility says it does not offer abortions.
