There has been a dramatic rise in attacks on pro-life organizations by far-left radicals following last Friday’s Supreme Court ruling “overturning” Roe v. Wade, and as predicted, Joe Biden is ignoring the actions of these pro-abortion domestic terrorists.
The most common target of pro-abortion domestic terrorists has been Christian-based centers located in places like Colorado; ironic because Colorado is one of the many states where abortion up to the moment of birth has become the law of the land in the aftermath of the SCOTUS ruling (via New York Post):
A Colorado Christian crisis center for pregnant women was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning, a day after the US Supreme Court reversed federal protection of abortions.
Police responded to a fire at Life Choices in Longmont around 3:20 a.m. and found the building ablaze with covered with graffiti messages referencing the controversial overturning of Roe v. Wade, officials said.
“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you,” one message read, accompanied by the circled “A” anarchy symbol.
The saying has been written at dozens of pro-life centers since the court’s intent to overturn the 1973 ruling was leaked in May.
Life Choices offers women alternatives to abortion as well as faith-based post-abortion counseling, according to its website. (Emphasis mine)
“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you” is the calling card of “Jane’s Revenge,” a domestic terrorist group which has quickly developed a reputation for resorting to violence against Christian pro-life centers (via National Review):
Pro-abortion terrorists firebombed a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, N.Y. on Tuesday, inflicting significant damage on the building and vandalizing the remains with their organization’s name.
Pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge, which has developed a reputation for resorting to violence, claimed responsibility for the attack, which left glass shattered and much of the interior of the CompassCare office burned and destroyed, CBN News reported.
The arsonists left graffiti on a wall that read, “Jane Was Here.” The organization has committed multiple such incidents in the last few months, including one in which it firebombed the headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), a pro-life group in Madison, Wis. last month. There, the terrorists left the message, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
Jane’s Revenge also admitted that it threw red paint on the front door of a crisis pregnancy center in Washington, D.C. last week, spray painting “Jane Says Revenge” on the side of the building. (Emphasis mine)
This string of rampages by Jane’s Revenge — the group’s name is a reference to the “Jane Collective,” an underground organization in Chicago that helped women obtain abortions prior to Roe v. Wade — began shortly after the leak of the Supreme Court draft majority opinion that indicated overturning the 1973 landmark decision.
Joe Biden claims to be focused on wiping out domestic terrorism, but his definition of what constitutes a “domestic terrorist” is subject to change based on which side of the political spectrum they fall on — a fact that has not gone unnoticed by some members of Congress.
In a letter first obtained by the Daily Caller and addressed to Department of Justice Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Republicans are demanding to know why the Biden administration has been missing-in-action concerning the barrage of attacks taking place against pregnancy centers, churches, and other pro-life groups.
Garland was asked to answer these specific questions:
- What steps has DOJ taken to investigate and prosecute individuals threatening and defacing Pro-Life pregnancy centers?
- Since May 2022, how many prosecutions has DOJ initiated that include charges under 18 U.S.C. § 248? If none, please explain your failure to act thus far.
- What resources are you providing to facilities that provide reproductive health services to deter attacks perpetrated by anti-life organizations?
- Since 1994, how many cases has the DOJ prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. § 248 involving facilities that provide resources and counseling on alternatives to abortion?
- For each case described in question 4, provide the name of each defendant, the outcome of the case, and any of the defendant’s prior or subsequent criminal records in the DOJ’s possession.
I won’t hold my breath waiting for a response.
Jane’s Revenge issued a statement titled “Night of Rage” on May 30 encouraging pro-abortion domestic terrorists to rise up and make the state “feel our full wrath,” to make them “be afraid of us,” and to act on “whatever form your fury takes.” It concluded, in part, with these words:
Consider this your call to action.
On the night the final ruling is issued——a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently——we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.
We must also say: do not wait until the verdict arrives to organize.
Make plans now. Take action now. (Emphasis mine)
It closed with this threat: “To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.”
One year ago, Joe Biden unveiled his strategy to counter the rise in so-called domestic terrorism by criminalizing free speech and establishing a foundation for building a police state to silence the voices of dissent coming from people opposed to tyranny and oppression — people like parents concerned about CRT and Marxism being taught to their children and law-abiding gun owners.
“Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden said in a statement at the time. “It goes against everything our country strives for, and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy and unity.”
Joe Biden and the army of leftists running the Democrat Party at the state and federal level claim to be committed to bringing an end to domestic terrorism, but as we see in his response to Jane’s Revenge and other pro-abortion groups attacking Christian pro-life organizations, not all domestic terrorists are created equal.
