Republican Rep. Reports Jane Fonda to Capitol Police After ‘Murder’ Of Pro-Lifers Comment

GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has reported far-left activist Jane Fonda after the actress made comments suggesting “murder” as a way to deal with those who oppose abortion.

  • Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna reported actress Jane Fonda “for threatening public officials” after the leftist actress suggested the “murder” of pro-life activists.
  • “This is ‘The View,’ they are supposed to pride themselves on being a show that promotes women viewpoints, right?” the Florida congresswoman asked Fox News host Jesse Watters earlier this week. “Yet, if you are pro-life, they want to essentially promote someone that’s calling for your murder. And so we absolutely did report this.”
  • “And so for people to go on national news outlets and make these calls of violence simply because they don’t like the fact that we are taking stands to protect life, I mean these people are unhinged. They need to be held accountable. There should not be a double standard,” she went on to say.
  • Rep. Luna said “unfortunately” for Fonda, the Capitol Police take these threats very seriously.

“Charges should be brought against her for threatening public officials. This gross type of intimidation and calls for violence should never be acceptable, regardless of political ideology,” Luna said.

  • Earlier last week, Fonda suggested “murder” as a way to ensure that women have access to abortions during an appearance on “The View,” but she has since issued a statement claiming that her comment was meant as a joke.
  • “We have experienced many decades now of having agency over our body, of being able to determine when,” as well as “how many children to have. We know what that feels like. We know what that’s done for our lives,” Fonda said during the segment. “We’re not goin’ back. I don’t care what the laws are.”
  • When cohost Joy Behar asked Fonda what she would recommend besides protesting, Fonda suggested “murder.” 
  • “While women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on The View was obviously made in jest,” Fonda said following the incident. “My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room – and to anyone watching – that I was using hyperbole to make a point.”
