Illinois pro-life activist's home vandalized

When Illinois pro-life activist Jill Stanek returned home Sunday night from a vacation with her family, she found a cinder block had been thrown through their living room window with a note attached saying, "Quit the pro-life bullsh*t."

"In the scheme of things this was nothing. But having my home vandalized was a first for me in the prolife movement," Stanek wrote on her Facebook page. "As if they thought this would make me stop?"

Stanek, who has been active in the pro-life movement since 1999, said the police suggested not publicizing, but resisted, saying she wasn't going to let pro-choice violence go unchecked.
