• A Colorado pregnancy center was set on fire and vandalized on Saturday.
  • Local officials said they are investigating the incident as arson.
  • The incident happened shortly after SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade. 

A pregnancy center in Colorado was set on fire and vandalized shortly after Roe v. Wade was reversed in the early hours of Saturday morning, officials said.

Public safety officials said they responded to Life Choices in Longmont, Colorado just after 3:00 a.m, according to a press release from the city. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered that the building was defaced. 

"The building sustained fire and heavy smoke damage," the press release said. " At the arrival of police and fire staff, the front of the property had been vandalized with black paint."

A photo shows the building was spray-painted with the message: "If abortions aren't safe, neither are you."

It comes after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion. 

Longmont Public Safety, along with the FBI, is investigating the fire as arson. Officials are also requesting any information from the public, including tips and video, in connection to the incident. 

In a statement on Facebook, Life Choices said that their facility is temporarily closed and that they will let the public know "as soon as operations return to normal."

The establishment is described as a "Christ-centered ministry providing education, support, healing, and limited medical services for sexual life choices," according to its website.
