GOP Calls for Pro-Abortion Group to Be Designated as ‘Domestic Terrorists’ by FBI

Jane’s revenge has taken responsibility for multiple attacks on pro-life centers.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Republicans are calling for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security to designate members of Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorists.
  • The group of Republicans sent a letter to the FBI and DHS citing the pro-abortion group’s militant attacks, requesting a change in the group’s status.
  • The Republicans are led by Congressman Markwayne Mullin, who cited the stated intentions of Jane’s Revenge as sufficient reason for concern.
  • “The attacks on pregnancy centers in these towns include arson, vandalism, and threats toward the owners and employees of these centers,” Mullin said. “Many of the buildings were tagged with graffiti stating, ‘if abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.'”
  • The letter also noted the group’s warning that they would take “increasingly dramatic measures” to push back against abortion laws, should the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.
REPUBLICANS LETTER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT:
  • “We write with grave concern regarding the group ‘Jane’s Revenge’ and its documented attacks on pregnancy centers across the country over the past two months. This group is a threat to expectant mothers across America, many of whom are in desperate need of assistance. We are calling on the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to officially classify those committing crimes through Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorists in response to their clear involvement in acts dangerous to human life,” the Republicans’ letter stated.
  • “These violent acts violate U.S. and State law, and the group itself has claimed intent to intimidate civilians and government officials. You must use the full extent of your powers under the law to fully prosecute these criminals and prevent further crime,” the letter went on to say.
  • “Yesterday, the group released a letter claiming ownership of the attacks in Madison, WI, Ft. Collins, CO, Reisterstown, MD, Olympia, WA, Des Moines, IA, Lynwood, WA, Washington, D.C., Ashville, NC, Buffalo, NY, Hollywood, FL, Vancouver, WA, Frederick, MA, Denton, TX, Gresham, OR, Eugene, OR, Portland, OR, and others.”
  • “Their letter goes as far as to say that this group of liberal extremists enjoys these vicious attacks, stating how ‘easy and fun it is to attack’ these important healthcare access points. They have also vowed to take “increasingly drastic measures” against these facilities and that “those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.” It is clear by their threats that the members of this group have no regard for human life and may be willing to kill those in the pro-life community to further their politically motivated agenda.”
  • “The final call in their letter is to have other extremists join their cause: ‘Everyone with the urge to paint, to burn, to cut, to jam: now is the time.’ Churches and pregnancy centers are at extreme risk and the members of Jane’s Revenge have been clear that they will not stop their reign of terror until pregnancy centers stop providing life-affirming services.”
  • “You must immediately call these criminals out for what they are, domestic terrorists, and use the full extent of your powers to prevent their intended bloodshed,” the letter states.
BACKGROUND:
  • The FBI is currently investigating Jane’s Revenge and its involvement in the attacks on crisis pregnancy centers and churches.
  • At this time, it’s believed that there have been more than 40 attacks carried out by individuals angry at the potential revocation of abortion rights.
