A rash of attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers, churches, and other organizations seeking to end the scourge of abortion in our country carried out by pro-abortion terrorist groups like Jane’s Revenge has led to FBI investigations into the matter, however, there are now questions arising from lawmakers who aren’t convinced that the Biden administration is doing enough to bring these acts of violence to an end.
According to Just the News, Republican U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray this week, demanding a briefing on the topic and encouraging Wray to make sure that these “violent attacks are recognized by the FBI and are being properly investigated for what they are – cases of abortion-related violent extremism.”
“There have been at least 40 violent attacks on crisis pregnancy centers, religious institutions, and other pro-life entities since the Dobbs leak and before the Court even issued its final opinion,” Grassley stated in the letter. “This violence continues to cause injury, damage to property, and interruption of constitutionally protected worship services all across the nation. In fact, it substantially accelerated last weekend, after the opinion was issued.
“Current threats from abortion extremists are impending, serious, and dangerous,” the letter continued.
Pro-life groups have come out and stated that they are afraid these attacks will get worse and possibly escalate to other kinds of violence. Given the track record of groups like Antifa, who have been known to throw cups full of urine, concrete, and other liquids and solids, the folks who run these groups have a legitimate reason to fear.
“Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health that there is no constitutional right to an abortion and that the states have the right to decide their own respective abortion policies,” Just the News stated in their report.
“I applaud Sen. Grassley for his efforts to protect pro-life pregnancy centers, churches, and other institutions,” Eric Scheidler, executive director for the Pro-Life Action League, admonished the senator. “It is critical that the FBI thoroughly investigate the rash of attacks on pro-life groups since the Dobbs draft was leaked, which have only intensified since the official ruling came down. The media have largely ignored these attacks, which don’t fit their narrative, but if law enforcement doesn’t step up, vandalism may escalate to physical violence and even homicide.”
Other lawmakers have also called on President Biden and his administration to help keep pro-life groups safe from the radicals who are desperate to do whatever it takes to preserve the legal permission to murder pre-born children.
“More than 40 pregnancy centers and churches have been attacked in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade,” Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel for the Thomas More Society, went on to say. “But there’s been a media blackout on this violence, and pro-abortion politicians refuse to acknowledge it. We expect the Biden administration to do just as much to protect pro-life pregnancy resource centers as it would for abortion facilities.”
New reports have shown that hackers have also started to target states that are now passing anti-abortion measures. Other attacks on these organizations have included broken windows, graffiti, and even arson.
The FBI recently gave a comment to The Center Square saying they are in the midst of investigating the attacks.
“The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country,” the FBI press office revealed in their statement. “The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities. We would like to remind members of the public that if they observe anything suspicious or have information about potential threats to report it to law enforcement immediately, call their local FBI field office, or submit a tip to tips.fbi.gov.”
What’s also really important is that the FBI find out who is responsible for these egregious attacks and charge them with terrorism. This would be a great discouragement for groups and individuals in the future to try and express their displeasure with the Supreme Court ruling in more productive, less violent ways.
