(LifeSiteNews) — The Thomas More Society formally warned radical pro-abortion group “Ruth Sent Us” that fostering acts of terrorism to intimidate pro-lifers will not go legally unanswered.

“Basically, this group is an extremist group,” said Paul Jonna, a pro-life attorney with the Thomas More Society, in an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews’ Jim Hale. “Besides encouraging and participating in disruptions during Mass, they’ve also recently published the home addresses of the six Supreme Court justices on the conservative side, and they are advocating for protests outside their house. … They’ve also recently threatened that they burn the Eucharist.”

“There’s a lot more I can say, but basically when we found out about this group, we thought we’d immediately put them on notice that if they actually proceed with any of this illegal conduct they can be subject to substantial legal penalties and civil liability as well,” he continued.

The Thomas More Society’s admonishments were precipitated by acts of pro-abortion and anti-religious terrorism by “Ruth Sent Us” at San Francisco’s Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption on Feb. 28. The group recorded how it trespassed and disrupted Mass on that day. Then it re-posted its video of the event on Twitter to encourage other pro-abortion activists to respond in the same way to the recent leak of the draft majority opinion in the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

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.

Thank you!

“I think it’s beyond just religious bigotry. I think this is, in my view, domestic terrorism,” explained Jonna, who detailed some of the most recent occurrences of pro-abortion violence flaring up across the nation.

“If you look at the FBI definition of domestic terrorism, [these acts] basically [fit] right into that definition: Dangerous acts intended to intimidate and coerce the civilian population, and intended to influence the policy of government.”

Jonna said that his law firm is currently investigating and researching reports of pro-abortion aggression but has not yet filed any cases against “Ruth Sent Us” or other radical entities.

In the current environment, Jonna recommends that churches, pro-life groups, and their congregations remain vigilant in observing and reporting illegal activity when it arises. He also explained that while the use of force can sometimes be justified when needed, that its use is essentially a legal gray area.

Jonna intimated that calling the police is frequently the most prudent option when dealing with disruptive protesters and stated that churches can refuse entry to anyone that they clearly deemed “suspicious.”

“I would say to play it safe. … Don’t let them in, and call the police,” he concluded.
