The headquarters of an anti-abortion group in St. Paul was defaced overnight with swear words and an anti-Donald Trump message.

Pro-Life Action Ministries put the photos on Facebook Monday afternoon.

One of the messages reads: "Squirm in need, another f------ mouth to feed." Next to it is a "F--- Trump" scribble. You can see the photo from their Facebook above.

The group notes that, as a nonprofit, it never endorsed Trump (who has indicated he would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned).

The vandalism came overnight Sunday into Monday. Jan 22 happened to be the anniversary of Roe v. Wade – the 1973 Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion across the U.S.

More than 4,000 people gathered at the Capitol in St. Paul Sunday to call for an end to abortion in America.

Pro-Life Action Ministries in its Facebook post said the organization's leader, Brian Gibson, got a harassing phone call that day, too.

"Clearly, there are those among pro-abortion advocates who seek to threaten, harass and intimidate those who peacefully seek to protect innocent life," Gibson said in the post. "But let me make this even clearer, we are not intimidated. Our work to return protection to the defenseless will continue unabated."

Pro-Life Action Ministries says it offers sidewalk counseling. They stand near abortion facilities and offer "real options of hope and love by ministering to them from out on the sidewalks." The organization has a list of "baby saved stories" on its website.

One recent national study found abortions in the U.S. are at the lowest rate since Roe v. Wade, citing two possible reasons: better access to birth control and contraceptives, as well as abortion restrictions passed in certain states.
