Local police arrest woman in attack on New York pro-life pregnancy center

The Amherst Police Department has made an arrest in an attack on CompassCare in Buffalo, New York.

According to a press release, 39-year-old Hannah Kamke was arrested and charged with one count of criminal mischief. She could still potentially face federal charges for violations of the FACE Act.

On March 15th, at approximately 10:30 p.m., someone — allegedly identified as Kamke — was caught on video spray-painting CompassCare’s sign with the word “LIARS.” It was the second attack on CompassCare within a year, and private investigators hired by the pregnancy center believe the two attacks are related.

The first attack took place in June of 2022, just weeks prior to the overturn of Roe v. Wade. In that attack, the pregnancy center was firebombed, causing massive damage. The pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge is believed to have been responsible. It took months for CompassCare to be able to reopen, with repairs and security costing the organization approximately $400,000. No arrests have been made in that incident, and it took the FBI nearly six months to release a short video clip of the suspect responsible.

CompassCare is one of many pro-life organizations to have been attacked since the Supreme Court draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked in May of 2022, indicating that Roe would be overturned. The pro-abortion violence has been widespread with little-to-no response from the Department of Justice. This has garnered serious criticism for the seeming politicization of the justice system by the Biden administration.

Rev. Jim Harden, CompassCare CEO, said this arrest by local police shows that the FBI is not making a serious effort to find the people responsible for firebombing the center last summer.

“This arrest represents an indictment on the FBI and the hundreds of other local law enforcement agencies that have allowed the FBI to usurp their investigative duty,” he said. “The FBI has less evidence for the March 16 vandalism than they do for the June 7 firebombing, yet they somehow were able to identify a suspect and make an arrest within days. We’ve been saying all along that the FBI possesses this kind of forensic power but has chosen not to employ it on behalf of pro-life people when victimized by pro-abortion Maoist Antifa.”
