A leader in the pro-life movement arrived home Sunday night to find a brick had been thrown through a window of her home, with a threatening message attached to it.
Jill Stanek, national campaign chair for the pro-life group the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA), posted a picture of the note that was attached to the brick on Twitter.

Emily Buchanan, SBA’s executive vice president, wrote supporters in an email Monday that Stanek “has been travelling the country, working to build support for Susan B. Anthony List’s aggressive campaign strategy to elect a pro-life president this year and advance legislation like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop abortion after five months.”
“Jill knows more than anyone the pain these children experience. As a nurse she witnessed babies around this age struggle for life after they had been abandoned following a failed abortion,” Buchanan added.
Last week, Stanek was among the signatories of a letter by several pro-life, conservative women urging Iowans to vote for any candidate other than Donald Trump in Monday’s Republican caucuses.
Stanek informed to Buchanan via email that “police are reporting the incident as ‘bias related’ and will be watching the house more. And we do have a motion detecting alarm system for intruders. I’m not worried. Just thought you’d want to know. Will be back at my desk tomorrow! More on fire than ever!“
“Please do me a favor and keep Jill and our entire team in your prayers,” Buchanan wrote supporters. “As you can see, the brick landed right on top of Jill’s devotional table – perhaps a reminder of how important prayer is in this battle for life.”
