Pro-Life Leaders Write Letter to Attorney General Garland Calling for Action to Stop Pro-Abortion Terrorism

A group of pro-life organizations has urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to take action to stop the surge of pro-abortion terrorism and intimidation. 25 pro-life leaders, sent a letter to the Justice Department, highlighting several attacks against pregnancy clinics, churches, and even Supreme Court justices that have happened since the Dobbs majority decision was leaked last month.

Referencing a recent declaration by renegade pro-abortion extremists known as Janes Revenge, threatening violence towards any pregnancy center that did not close its doors, the letter stated, “The relative silence from the Administration endangers Americans even more. One extremist group is advocating for violence in response to the final Supreme Court decision on Dobbs.” The organization has claimed responsibility for scores of attacks against pro-life pregnancy centers in recent weeks, including firebombings, graffiti, and other vandalism.

The letter also cited the group Ruth Sent Us, explaining that “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.” 

Additionally, the leaders mentioned Justice Kavanaugh’s attempted assassination, when a man equipped with a rifle and burglary tools, went to Kavanaugh’s home in suburban Maryland last Wednesday. The man told police he was there to assassinate the justice to prevent Roe v. Wade from being overturned. He also informed authorities that he intended to prevent the Supreme Court from easing gun control regulations. 

According to the letter, many of the pro-abortion assaults have also targeted Catholic parishes around the country. They claim that “Since May 2020 over 130 incidents have occurred across 29 states and the District of Columbia at Catholic properties alone.” Arson, the beheading of statues, and the defacing of gravestones with swastikas and anti-Catholic epithets are just a few examples of these incidents.

The group called on Garland to issue a “prompt, comprehensive, and public response,” citing “18 U.S. Code 247,” which mandates that the Attorney General investigate and prosecute those who “do damage to religious property or participate in the obstruction of persons in the free exercise of religious beliefs.” Garland has been quiet so far about Jane’s Revenge’s violent messaging and the wave of attacks on pro-life pregnancy facilities. However, on Wednesday  White House Assistant Press Secretary Alexandra LaManna stated that “violence and destruction of property have no place in our country under any circumstances, and the President denounces this.”
