MADISON, Wisconsin (LifeSiteNews) — A militant pro-abortion group appears to be taking credit for vandalizing and setting fire to the office of a Wisconsin pro-life advocacy group on Mother’s Day, declaring they “have run thin on patience and mercy” for pro-lifers and will “adopt increasingly extreme tactics to maintain freedom over our own bodies.”

The pro-abortion organization, which calls itself “Jane’s Revenge,” allegedly claimed responsibility for the Mother’s Day arson and vandalism of Wisconsin Family Action’s headquarters in a “communiqué” obtained by Robert Evans, an investigative reporter for the online news site Bellingcat.

Vandals had set fire to the building Sunday morning and spray-painted the words “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” on an exterior wall, along with an anarchist symbol.

Evans, who said the group’s statement was sent to him from a trusted “anonymous intermediary,” shared the radical message and described its contents in a Tuesday morning Twitter thread.

According to Evans, the name “Jane’s Revenge” refers to the 1970s-era Jane Collective, which was an underground organization that helped Chicago women obtain illegal abortions.

“This is not a declaration of war,” the message attributed to the group stated. “War has been upon us for decades. A war which we did not want, and did not provoke. Too long have we been attacked for asking for basic medical care. Too long have we been shot, bombed, and forced into childbirth without consent.”

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

The statement asserted that the firebombing attack and vandalism of the Wisconsin Family Action headquarters in the north end of Madison on May 8 “was only a warning,” and promised that pro-abortion militants will “adopt increasingly extreme tactics” to oppose protections for the unborn.

According to the group’s violently-worded manifesto, members plan to perpetrate more acts of violence against pro-life advocacy groups.

“We are literally fighting for our lives,” the activists declared. “We will not sit still while we are killed and forced into servitude.”

Demanding “the disbanding of all anti-choice establishments, fake clinics, and violent anti-choice groups within the next thirty days,” the group said they were “forced to adopt the minimum military requirement for a political struggle.”

Evans said in his Tuesday Twitter thread that he has “not had any direct contact with people claiming to be members of this group or to have been responsible for this attack,” but explained that the intermediary “who sent this to me has a reputation for extreme reliability.”

“I believe this statement is newsworthy for a number of reasons, including the fact that a large number of people are speculating that this attack may have been a false flag,” Evans said.

During a Monday press conference with the Madison Police Department (MPD), St. Paul Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), and Milwaukee FBI, MPD Chief Shon Barnes had dismissed a suggestion that the Sunday attack on the pro-life office had been an “inside job.”

Barnes said that while some people may have “conspiracy theories,” there was no reason to believe pro-lifers had perpetrated the attack upon themselves.

In his Twitter thread, Evans also opined that he “would be very surprised if this was not a legitimate attack.”

Federal agents and detectives from the Madison Police Department have since begun investigating the claim made by the so-called “Jane’s Revenge” group, The Guardian reported.

A spokesperson for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) told the newspaper Tuesday that while its agents were aware of the statement, the agency was unable to provide further details due to the ongoing investigation.

The Madison police department also said it was “aware of a group claiming responsibility for the arson at Wisconsin Family Action” and is “working with our federal partners to determine the veracity of that claim”.

The Sunday attack in Wisconsin and subsequent manifesto from the “Jane’s Revenge” group came amid a rash of criminal incidents targeting Catholic churches and pro-life centers over the weekend, following the unprecedented leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization abortion case last week.

According to the leaked opinion, the Supreme Court is angled to rule in favor of Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban by overturning both Roe v. Wade along with Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), which upheld Roe.

Pro-abortion activists have responded to the news with outrage and renewed efforts to codify the “federal right to abortion” as the law of the land.

Others have attempted to disrupt a Catholic Mass, protested outside the homes of pro-life Supreme Court justices, and committed acts of vandalism and theft, spiking tensions between pro-life and pro-abortion advocates.

As the nation awaits the final ruling in the Dobbs case, it appears pro-abortion protests and activism are likely to continue to ramp up.

In the conclusion of the “Jane’s Revenge” manifesto, the group reiterated that the firebombing of the Wisconsin Family Action headquarters “was only a warning,” adding, “Next time the infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive.”

“Medical imperialism will not face a passive enemy,” the group said. “Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings.”

“Jane’s Revenge” activists stated that they are not alone in their militant pro-abortion activism, but are only one of “many.”

“We are in your city. We are in every city. Your repression only strengthens our accomplice-ship [sic] and resolve,” they wrote.

Anyone with information about the vandalism and arson at the Wisconsin pro-life center is asked to contact the Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
