WFAA News 8 reports the Dallas Police Department later determined that the suspicious package was a hoax, quite possibly meant to scare pro-life advocates who peacefully pray outside a nearby abortion clinic.
Becky Visosky, executive director of the Catholic Pro-Life Committee in Dallas, told LifeNews that there have been several hostile incidents recently during the 40 Days for Life prayer vigils outside the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center, an abortion facility in Dallas.
The most recent incident appears to have been an attempt to intimidate pro-lifers who pray outside the abortion clinic 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
