While the Supreme Court decides what to do about Roe v. Wade, abortion activists are taking out their frustrations on pro-life pregnancy centers. Vandalism, arson, and threats continue without a single word of rebuke from the Biden administration. However, the FBI has finally stepped in and is calling out these attacks. In a statement, the Bureau said:
“The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country. The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities.”
Since the leaked draft opinion from SCOTUS on May 3, pro-abortion groups have been up in arms, seeming to come out of the woodwork in droves to dispute such a potential action. They have gathered in marches promising a “summer of rage,” camped out at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s and other Justices’ homes, and more recently, have been bent on attacking places that support pro-life. And then, of course, there was the attempt on Kavanaugh’s life.
Last month, the Wisconsin Family Action headquarters suffered arson and had this ominous message painted in red on the building: “If abortions aren’t safe you aren’t either.” A pro-choice group calling itself “Jane’s Revenge” has reportedly taken responsibility for this attack as well as throwing red paint on a Washington, DC crisis pregnancy center.
In Buffalo, NY, a pregnancy center was firebombed, as well as another in Oregon. Since the leaked memo, 17 pro-life centers and churches have suffered some sort of vandalism. And this may only be the beginning. Jane’s Revenge has promised more violence to come and has reportedly set a 30-day deadline for what it calls “anti-choice” organizations to stop operating. Another group, Ruth Sent Us, has also been targeting the Justices, posting personal information on social media such as their addresses and even where they go to church and their children go to school.
A letter from CatholicVote, co-signed by several pro-life organizations, was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting a meeting to discuss what should be done “in the likelihood these attacks will intensify.” The letter, in part, states:
“One extremist group is advocating for violence in response to the final Supreme Court decision on Dobbs, while another group has published home addresses, and encouraged people to show up at Supreme Court Justices’ homes, churches, and their children’s schools in an attempt to coerce the Justices and influence their final decision.”
While the focus is on the January 6 committee hearings and Democrats scramble to find a way to blame former President Donald Trump for the Capitol riot, the White House is pretty much mum on these attacks. Joe Biden has yet to say anything – except through a spokesperson in a statement to The Daily Wire) – much less publicly address the violence. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked directly about the attacks but refused to address them. Of course, that shouldn’t really come as a surprise since several House Democrats voted against legislation providing security for justices’ families.
While the Capitol building – the people’s building – sits encircled by a security fence, Supreme Court justices were left for too long without protection. And, while the Biden administration ponders a public health emergency to protect access to abortions, pro-lifers and Christians are being targeted, their buildings vandalized or destroyed, and are receiving ultimatums to close or suffer the consequences.
As Democrats, and the nation’s commander-in-chief, show little regard for the safety of those Americans with whom they disagree, all eyes now turn to the FBI to demonstrate that it, at least, is capable of pursuing equal justice for all.
