Last week a group of more than 100 congressmen — including all four congressmen from Arkansas — urged the U.S. Department of Justice to take action against the pro-abortion terror group Jane’s Revenge.
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton (R – AR) wrote a letter to U.S. Attorney General Garland urging the DOJ to investigate Jane’s Revenge as a domestic terror group and prosecute those who have committed acts of violence against pro-life organizations.
Violence against pro-lifers has escalated since the leak of a draft opinion indicating that the U.S. Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade.
In many cases, credit for the attacks has gone to the terror group Jane’s Revenge.
Sen. Cotton’s letter addressed to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says,
Houses of worship and pro-life pregnancy centers are under attack. The Family Research Council has compiled a list of more than 50 attacks against churches, pro-life pregnancy centers, and other pro-life groups in the past few weeks.] A left-wing extremist group called “Jane’s Revenge” has taken credit for many of these attacks, including firebombings and grotesque acts of vandalism. The same group has now issued a letter declaring “open season” on all so-called “anti-choice” groups, and calls for terrorist attacks against these groups by anyone “with the urge to paint, to burn, to cut, [or] to jam.” I am appending a list of attacks this group has already claimed at the end of this letter.
What is the Department of Justice doing to protect Americans from these violent attacks? At a minimum, you should bring federal charges against the perpetrators, where appropriate, and investigate “Jane’s Revenge” as a domestic terrorist organization.
If you are unwilling to protect Americans from these attacks, you should resign — although, in
my opinion, you should resign in any case.
Sen. Cotton’s letter goes on to list attacks against churches and pro-life organizations claimed by Jane’s Revenge, including:
