The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced on Friday that it is examining recent attacks on pregnancy centers as possible acts of violent domestic extremism in advance of a Supreme Court ruling on the Roe v. Wade case.
The FBI said a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country are currently under investigation. The FBI takes all threats seriously, and to safeguard our communities, they will continue to collaborate closely with other law enforcement partners and maintain a heightened state of vigilance.
The FBI asked anyone with information on the attacks or prospective threats to notify law enforcement, call their local FBI field office, or send an email to tips.fbi.gov.
Recently, the pro-choice organization is known as “Jane’s Revenge” has taken credit for attacks against pro-life organizations. These attacks include spraying red paint on a crisis pregnancy center in Washington, D.C., last week and the attack on Wisconsin Family Action, which took place one month ago.
Federal officials are investigating a fire that broke out early on Friday morning at a pregnancy help center in Gresham, Oregon.
According to KOIN’s reporting, the Gresham Fire Department stated that the building sustained significant damage due to the fire. According to the officials, no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
A pro-life Christian pregnancy center in New York was also apparently the target of an act of arson not long before this incident, according to the police.
The chief executive officer of a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo that was “firebombed” by an alleged left-wing group has criticized Democratic political leaders for remaining “eerily silent” and not denouncing the violence against the center. The left-wing group allegedly targeted the center.
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, said Thursday that Attorney General Merrick Garland should resign for the Biden administration’s inactivity on Jane’s Revenge attacks against pro-life pregnancy facilities and churches.
In the letter to Garland, Cotton called on the DOJ to investigate Jane’s Revenge as a “domestic terrorist organization.”
The senator listed more than a dozen Jane’s Revenge attacks in recent weeks following the disclosure of a Supreme Court draft judgment that, if published, would overturn Roe v. Wade.
