FBI investigates attack at CompassCare and other pro-life pregnancy centers

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The FBI is investigating attacks at CompassCare Pregnancy Services in Buffalo and other pro-life pregnancy centers.

Earlier in June, the president of CompassCare said the Buffalo location was deliberately set on fire, vandalized, and had its windows broken. Police are investigating the damage as arson. The incident led to increased security at other CompassCare locations, including in Rochester.

The FBI National Press Office shared the following statement with News10NBC:

"The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country. The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities. We would like to remind members of the public that if they observe anything suspicious or have information about potential threats to report it to law enforcement immediately, call their local FBI field office, or submit a tip to tips.fbi.gov."
