The Jane’s Revenge extremist pro-abortion group has declared “open season” on pro-life facilities and organizations. The organization has claimed responsibility for vandalism and several fire bombings from Florida to Wisconsin and issued warnings.
“You have seen that we are real and that we are not merely pushing empty words. Your 30 days expired yesterday. We offered an honorable way out. You could have walked away. Now the leash is off. And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue. We have demonstrated in the past month how easy and fun it is to attack. We are versatile, we are mercurial, and we answer to no one but ourselves. We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti,” said the group’s statement.
The group continued saying that any “anti-choice” group or organization that does not “close their doors” or discontinue “operating” will soon become a “target.” They also warned, “it’s open season, and we know where your operations are.”
Jane’s Revenge’s warning comes even though the final ruling from the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has not been issued in a case that could overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which declared abortion legal in America.
A leaked draft copy of the ruling pointed to the SCOTUS overturning the almost 50-year-old ruling in favor of turning over the issues to the states. Despite issuing several rulings recently, the court has not yet issued a ruling in the abortion case.
Threat comes after Justice Kavanaugh escapes murder plot
According to a report by The Daily Wire, the White House condemned the group’s threat. “Violence and destruction of property have no place in our country under any circumstances, and the president denounces this,” said White House Assistant Press Secretary Alexandra LaManna. “We should all agree that actions like this are completely unacceptable regardless of our politics.”
Jane’s Revenge’s threats come less than a week after a man traveled from California to Maryland to kill conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his own home because of the potential ruling. According to the Department of Justice, the man, Nicholas John Roske, was indicted by a federal grand jury for “federal charges of attempting to murder a Justice of the United States, specifically, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.”
So far, about 20 documented incidents of fires, graffiti, and vandalism have been reported at pro-life facilities across the U.S. These attacks include a Molotov cocktail thrown into the office of an anti-abortion organization in Wisconsin. The group also claimed it participated in incidents in Washington, Iowa, Colorado, Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, New York, Oregon, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C.
