WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Congressional Republicans have renewed calls for further investigations into a pro-abortion group called Jane’s Revenge, which has taken credit for the firebombing of pro-life centers across the country, calling for the group to be classified as “domestic terrorists.”
Pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge released a letter on June 14 that promised further violence and declared “open season” on pro-life centers. “From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target,” the pro-abortion group’s message stated. “But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are. The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has begun investigating the attacks, according to the New York Post, after the spate of pro-abortion violence swept through the country.
Congressional Republicans sent a letter on Tuesday to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and FBI Director Christopher Wray expressing “grave concern” about “documented attacks on pregnancy centers across America” from Jane’s Revenge.
The letter, first obtained by The Daily Wire, is reportedly signed by Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin, Florida Congressman Greg Steube, South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan and Georgia Congressman Jody Hice. However, the Daily Wire’s copy of the letter cuts off the list of signers.
In the aftermath of the leak of the Supreme Court majority opinion draft overruling Roe v. Wade, lawless vandals backed by the abortion lobby and pro-abortion politicians have launched riots and violent attacks on pro-life entities across America, from pregnancy centers to churches, and even targeted Justices' homes.
This widespread, organized effort not only sets a dangerous standard for how groups and individuals may opt to stage demonstrations going forward, but begs the question of how the pro-abortion crowd would behave if and when the Supreme Court officially overturns Roe later this summer.
And, worst of all, the White House has largely turned a blind eye to these riots, with Joe Biden -- who at one time claimed to be personally opposed to abortion due to his Catholic faith -- now acting as the foremost advocate for unfettered abortion access in America.
Biden's nonexistent response must be addressed, and the White House needs to know that the American people demand better from their supposed "leader."
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to stop beating around the bush and finally issue a formal statement condemning the violent riots and attacks on pro-life institutions across our country in the wake of the leaked Supreme Court majority opinion draft overturning Roe v. Wade.
Over Mother's Day weekend, pro-abortion attacks broke out across America, with increasingly depraved activists targeting pregnancy centers, pro-life advocacy organizations, and churches with either disruptive demonstrations or, in some cases, vandalism and outright violence.
Among the most barbaric occurrences was the vicious attack on Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life group headquartered in Madison, where vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into an office window, started a fire on one of its walls, and left a threatening graffiti message reading "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either."
Review a FULL LIST of other appalling attacks HERE.
They even descended upon the homes of Supreme Court Justices like Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts, who appear poised to formally issue the final blow to Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks, after publishing a map with their private addresses.
The case, which was decided nearly 50 years ago in 1973, saw members of the bench fabricate a constitutional "right" to abortion, depriving individual states from crafting their own laws to protect life. However, should Roe, as expected, be overturned, the matter of abortion would be returned to the states, where it always belonged, giving lawmakers the ability to propose legislation that would either place strong restrictions on the procedure or, in some cases, ban it outright.
And while, of course, freedom of speech must be protected and defended for all Americans, demonstrations that devolve into vandalism, rioting, the use of intimidation tactics against members of the judiciary (or anyone else, for that matter), or violence in any form must NEVER be tolerated.
But the White House seems to be taking a different approach...
It wasn't until Monday afternoon that Press Secretary Jen Psaki finally acknowledged the threat posed to Supreme Court Justices by out-of-control pro-abotion activists, claiming that "judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety."
This is true, but it took Psaki an entire week to make any semblance of a definitive statement about the White House's position on this urgent matter. In fact, Psaki previously refused to discourage the targeting of Justices' homes when asked, insisting that pro-abortion groups were staging "peaceful protests" instead; she even failed to condemn the leak itself -- an unprecedented breach of trust and rejection of institutional norms that could permanently damage the standing of the court and its ability to function as an apolitical body.
And, of course, Joe Biden, himself, has been virtually silent on the matter, failing to effectively speak out against these riots and reassure the American people that those who seek to vandalize property and perpetrate violence will be held legally accountable for their actions by the Department of Justice.
This is entirely unacceptable behavior from a commander-in-chief, and as political allies like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (rather ironically) incite insurrection by labeling the Supreme Court's pending decision a "call to arms," the American people must demand that Joe Biden clarify where he stands, and whose side he's really on.
The rule of law must be upheld and applied equally, and that means calling out radical anti-life rioters and ensuring there are consequences for their violent outbursts and destruction of property across the country.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to condemn these rioters, and direct the U.S. Department of Justice to take action that will hold them accountable for their actions under the law.

“We are calling on the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to officially classify those committing crimes through Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorists in response to their clear involvement in acts dangerous to human life,” the letter states.
These violent acts violate U.S. and State law, and the group itself has claimed intent to intimidate civilians and government officials. You must use the full extent of your powers under the law to fully prosecute these criminals and prevent further crime.
Congressman Mullin told The Daily Wire that such violence has “no place in our Republic” and criticized his colleagues across the aisle for continuing to remain silent on the attacks. It is now nearly two full months since Jane’s Revenge first carried out its attack against Wisconsin Family Action on Mother’s Day.
“It’s shameful the Left has proven so far unwilling to speak out against their own fringe narrative, especially if it means American lives are in danger,” Mullin told the Daily Wire. “It’s past time they quit with the complacency and investigate these members for exactly what they are: domestic terrorists. We are demanding immediate action to prevent this violence from occurring ever again.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently avoided condemning the violent attacks against pro-life centers when asked about it on June 17, instead doubling down on her support for abortion.
“Well, let me say this. A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility is up to her, her doctor, her husband, her significant other, and her God,” said Pelosi.
Pelosi is pressed on whether Democrat rhetoric is fueling attacks on crisis pregnancy centers.
She refuses to condemn attacks – and says “politicizing all of this is uniquely American.”

Leftists have also carried out potentially illegal protests, with the backing of the White House, outside of the homes of Supreme Court justices.
More recently, a California man tried to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on June 7, though law enforcement stopped him before he could carry out his attempt.
