Ever since the Supreme Court “overturned” Roe v. Wade, violence against pro-life organizations by the pro-abortion domestic terrorist group known as Jane’s Revenge has skyrocketed while Joe Biden and his Department of Justice (DOJ) turn a blind eye to their criminal activities.
The most recent act of domestic terrorism against pro-life organizations by Jane’s Revenge occurred late last week in Massachusetts (via Catholic News Service):
Police are investigating vandalism at a western Massachusetts pregnancy center that provides women facing a crisis pregnancy with free diapers, wipes, baby clothes, strollers and car seats.
Police said vandals early Aug. 18 spray-painted “Jane’s Revenge” on benches located outside of Bethlehem House in Easthampton, near Springfield, along with the message, “If abortion isn’t safe, neither are you.”
Jane’s Revenge is an organization that supports keeping abortion legal. It has claimed responsibility for similar actions at churches and pro-life pregnancy centers across the country since May, when a draft opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health organization case was leaked.

“Jane’s Revenge” derived its name from the “Jane Collective,” an underground organization in Chicago that helped women obtain abortions prior to Roe v. Wade.
Ever since the Supreme Court’s June 24 decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, — a ruling that didn’t end abortion, but merely allowed states to determine if, when, and how to murder babies born and unborn — domestic terrorism at the hands of Jane’s Revenge has been on the rise, with their most common target being Christian-based pro-life centers.
A Christian crisis center for pregnant women was vandalized and set on fire by Jane’s Revenge one day after the Supreme Court reversed federal protection of abortion under Roe v. Wade. When police responded to the 911 call at Life Choices in Longmont around 3:20 a.m. on June 25, they found the building ablaze and covered with graffiti messages referencing the controversial overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you,” one message read, accompanied by the circled “A” anarchy symbol.
“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you” is the calling card of Jane’s Revenge, a group which has developed a reputation for resorting to violence and acts of domestic terrorism against Christian pro-life centers.
Earlier in June, Pro-abortion terrorists firebombed a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, N.Y., inflicting significant damage on the building and vandalizing the remains with their organization’s name. Jane’s Revenge claimed responsibility for the attack, which left glass shattered and much of the interior of the CompassCare office burned and destroyed. Graffiti at the scene included the message: “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
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. For example, when he unveiled his strategy to counter the rise in domestic terrorism, he suggested criminalizing free speech and establishing a defacto 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.
The DOJ’s inaction concerning Jane’s Revenge and other pro-abortion domestic terrorist groups hasn’t gone unnoticed by some members of Congress.
In a letter first obtained by the Daily Caller back in June addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Republicans called out Biden and the DOJ for being missing-in-action concerning the barrage of attacks taking place against pregnancy centers, churches, and other pro-life groups.
Specifically, Garland was asked to answer these 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.
We’re still waiting on a response.
Any doubts as to the motivation of Jane’s Revenge were eliminated when the group issued a statement titled “Night of Rage” prior to the Supreme Court ruling in the Dobbs case (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)
The statement closed with the threat: “To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.”
“Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden once said. “It goes against everything our country strives for, and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy and unity.”
Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, the DOJ, and the rest of army of leftists running the Democrat Party at the state and federal level can make all the claims they want about being committed to bringing an end to domestic terrorism, but as we see in their response to domestic terrorists Jane’s Revenge and other pro-abortion groups attacking Christian pro-life organizations, they’re still turning a blind eye to domestic terrorism when committed by their pro-abortion allies.
