Fresno, Calif. (KFSN)-The issue of abortion is so hot that Homeland Security investigators have warned of potential violence following a Supreme Court ruling.

At St. John’s Cathedral in downtown Fresno, wrought-iron fences surround the church grounds.

They built it for protection two years ago, but they are worried that it may not be enough this weekend.

The Supreme Court’s ruling overturning the Roe v. Wade case took place on Friday to celebrate the Catholic Church.

Chandler Marquez, Communications Director of the Parish of Fresno, said:

The Vatican opposed abortion long before the evangelicals took up the abortion, and its advocacy of abortion may now target the church and pregnancy center.

“Earlier this week, all bishops across California were notified by radical groups across the country calling for and supporting the event on a night of Homeland Security anger,” Marquez said.

Bishop Fresno Joseph Brennan sent a note earlier this week warning of extreme violence starting at 8 pm on the night of the decision.

A parish spokesman tells me that most churches have hired additional guards for this weekend and are taking special precautions.

“It’s scary, but the community really helped us,” Marquez said. “Fresno PD really helped us protect the city’s parish.”

Police are in constant contact with the parish, but chief Paco Balderrama says investigators do not yet have credible evidence of a local threat.

They have a list of potential targets, such as churches and planned parent-child relationships, and will be vigilant until their anger subsides.

“Therefore, they will contact” Hey, we were threatened “or” We were threatened “and investigate and investigate it, providing additional security,” said Prime Minister Valderrama. Said. “Again, I don’t expect anything to be prepared for the worst.”

The chief says Fresno has a relatively good history of behavior during protests, including the recent Tower Theater, so he hopes it will continue.
