A South Minneapolis pro-life organization had its building vandalized Wednesday night, and the alleged perpetrators are apparently taking credit for the act online.

“Last night the MCCL [Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life] office was vandalized, including graffiti and broken windows. This is the second time we have been targeted in recent weeks. But we are grateful to be all safe,” reads the organization’s Facebook page.

Founded in 1968, the organization has “since worked to ensure the protection of innocent human life from conception until natural death through education, legislation and political action”, according to its website.

But a day after the post, Abolition Media – described as an online news source for revolutionary movements on its site – created its own post, detailing the intent of the act and taking credit for it as name of “Jane from the block”.

“Their offices and infrastructure deserve the same if not worse fate than the dozens of fake pregnancy clinics in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area that fulfill MCCL’s vision,” the post read.

According to its site, “Abolition Media stands in stark contrast to corporate and capitalist media, which push the disastrous agendas of nation states…More than just a source of information, Abolition Media aims to be a tool for dedicated movements to anarchists, abolitionists and revolutionaries. Our mission is to connect these ideas with the public; to clarify positions that are often obscure.”
