Last night, Jill Stanek, Susan B. Anthony List’s national campaign chair, returned home to find a brick thrown through her window.
The note included with the brick (warning: crass language) made it clear she was targeted for her pro-life work. For about six months, Jill has been traveling 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 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.
As you can see from her message below, despite this attack, Jill is more resolved than ever to fight on behalf of the unborn and their mothers. Her dedication to our shared cause is so inspiring, I had to share it with you. The SBA List team is truly blessed to have her on our side.
Please keep Jill and our entire team in your prayers. 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.
Just like Jill, we are not worried. We are more fired up than ever to defend life and build a culture of Life in our nation – we hope you are, too!

Subject: Brick thru window
Hello there. We just got home and walked into the house to find a brick through our front window and a note…
The brick landed on my devotional table (inside plastic bag). Love that for some reason.
I haven’t even been doing anything to make abortion advocates mad lately! Just quietly doing my thing behind the scenes for SBA List! Apparently that’s worse than writing snarky blog posts!
The 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!
