(The Daily Signal) — The Department of Justice told a United States Conference of Catholic Bishops committee that attacks on pro-life pregnancy resource centers can be prosecuted under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, according to an email obtained by The Daily Signal.

The revelation is significant as the Justice Department faces intense criticism for failing to prosecute those who vandalized, attacked, or firebombed pregnancy resource centers and churches (according to Catholic Vote trackers, at least 86 Catholic churches and 74 pregnancy resource centers and other pro-life organizations have been attacked since the May leak of the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade).

Until now, it was unclear whether the Justice Department intended to prosecute any of these attacks under the FACE Act.

In an email dated Nov. 2, the USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities Executive Director Thomas Grenchik updated diocesan pro-life directors and state Catholic conference directors on the Justice Department’s “outreach on pregnancy center attacks.”

“The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has a task force dedicated to enforcing the FACE Act,” Grenchik said. “Recently, the director of the task force reached out to the USCCB regarding the ongoing attacks on pregnancy resource centers.”
