The FBI announced an investigation into recent violent attacks carried out on pro-life centers as the SCOTUS case Roe v. Wade could be overturned in the near future.
“The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country,” the FBI said in a statement. “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.”
The bureau is soliciting help from the public for any information concerning the attacks or individuals involved.
Radical domestic terrorist group, “Jane’s Revenge”, has taken responsibility for attacks on pregnancy centers in Madison WI, Ft. Collins CO, Reisertown MA, Olympia WA, Des Moines IA, Lynwood WA, Washington DC, Ashville NC, Buffalo NY, Hollywood FL, Vancouver WA, Frederick MA, Denton TX, Gresham OR, Eugene OR, and Portland OR.
The extremist group’s name has been found spray-painted across the vandalized and destroyed crime scenes.
As the number of attacks on pro-life groups and individuals ticked up to 51 this week, an abortion activist group promises to take “increasingly drastic measures” which are not “so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.” @WSHStand https://t.co/If1x9Nnz1W pic.twitter.com/L3yBKyZCgm

The group threatened pregnancy centers with an ultimatum in a statement released Tuesday: “From here forward any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target. But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are.”
“The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive. We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat,” they added.
The far-Left group said they “find joy, courage, and strip the veneer of impenetrability held by these violent institutions.”
While Democrat leaders have refused to acknowledge the attacks, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz slammed the group.
Cruz said, “these radicals claim to be pro-woman, but apparently they don’t want to help a mom who’s pregnant with a child actually give birth to the child.”

"They’re threatening to attack, to burn, to murder people, and by the way, at pregnancy centers…these are centers that are helping moms who are pregnant with children to give birth to those children." pic.twitter.com/s7xTX3aTRF

On Wednesday, 122 House Republicans signed a letter sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, pushing him to investigate the attacks.
“The Department of Justice must act swiftly to investigate and prosecute recent domestic terrorist attacks against pro-life organizations and dissuade future perpetrators of such violence,” the Republicans told Garland.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio said, “The DOJ has not been faithful to its promise of ensuring the public’s safety against these violent, radical activists. To date, there has not been a single charge brought against any individual or group despite the countless pro-life centers in America that have been firebombed and vandalized in recent months.”
