Andrea Swartzendruber and Danielle Lambert, both from UGA's Epidemiology and Biostatistics Department, compiled the locations of more than 2,500 pro-life clinics across the country. They then put this information in map format for easy use.
The stated purpose of the map is "to provide location information about all of the crisis pregnancy centers operating in the U.S." Swartzendruber and Lambert refer to them as "fake women's health centers" that are aimed at "prevent[ing] people from having abortions."
"There's reason to think that people seeking health services may not know exactly what these centers are and the services they offer," Swartzendruber said in 2018 when the map first went online, suggesting that pregnant women are too stupid to figure out what a crisis pregnancy center is.
Antifa is said to be making full use of the map, which helps its members identify where crisis pregnancy centers are located in order to vandalize them and set them on fire.
An Antifa chapter out of Washington state included the CPC map in a post celebrating the destruction of a pro-life clinic by another member of the same domestic terrorist cell.
Back in May, the group claimed responsibility for the vandalization of four churches in the Olympia area. All of them, Antifa said, are in some way tied to pregnancy resource centers, so they had to go.
"You can find your nearest fake abortion clinic on the Crisis Pregnancy Center Map," the post mocked.
Just after the Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, another far-left domestic terrorist group in Minnesota called the Twin Cities Encampment Responders posted a link to the map as encouragement for its members to become violent.
"A map of anti-abortion fake clinics, including dozens around the Twin Cities area ... you know, just because information is power," the group wrote in a wink-wink post to its members.
Colorado Springs Antifa, another domestic terrorist group that "doxxes" people affiliated with right-wing groups, shared a post to Twitter containing a link to the CPC map and a message of criminal intent that read: "For the night owls."
A graphic accompanying the group's original post was even more forthcoming, stating:
"Your local crisis pregnancy center tonight. Mask up. Stay dangerous."
As we reported, many of these same domestic terrorists are roving Reddit with the addresses of the Supreme Court justices who voted in favor of protecting unborn human life.
"What we hope the perpetrators of this act understand is that an attack on Life Choices is ultimately not an attack on a political party or act of," said Kathy Roberts, the head of a Longmont, Colo.-based crisis pregnancy center called Life Choices that was vandalized and burned by pro-abortion terrorists.
"It is an attack on those who walk through our doors every day in need of diapers, pregnancy tests, limited ultrasounds, clothing, financial and parenting classes, support, and so much more. It is an attack on a place that is supposed to be safe for women, men, and their families."
So much of this terrorism would not have been as easily accomplished were it not for Swartzendruber and Lambert's map. While the two may not be directly associated with the crimes at hand, they sure are facilitating it – and proudly, based on the rhetoric they have used in the past to denigrate the very existence of crisis pregnancy centers.
