Pro-Abortion Group Firebombs Pregnancy Center In New York
A pro-abortion group that has taken the name Jane’s Revenge took responsibility for firebombing a pro-life center in Buffalo, New York. In addition to the fires, windows were also broken and the phrase “Jane was here” was spray painted on the building.
The pro-life center, CompassCare, spoke out against New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s response to violence against pro-life centers or lack thereof:
“Ironically, New York’s Governor not only ignored the violence but instead earmarked $35 million in taxpayer funds to increase security at abortion clinics.”
Violence has ratcheted up following a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that could result in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion being overturned.

Left-Wing Violence Over Abortion
This isn’t the first attack on a facility connected to Jane’s Revenge. Last month, they took credit for an arson attack on the Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) headquarters in Madison, the state’s capital.
Additionally, their graffiti was found on a Next Step Pregnancy Services in Washington state. Next Step provides the following items to women: pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, adoption assistance, and support post-miscarriage and abortion.

Jane’s Revenge (or copycats) likes to leave behind calling cards such as “Jane was here” or my personal favorite that is left at many scenes:
“If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
What Will DHS And The DOJ Do?
Hard to say to be fair. Another group known as Ruth Sent Us had posted the addresses of Supreme Court Justices who are anticipated to vote in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade.
Be prepared for this when SCOTUS decision comes down. These, and other heads will explode. And our Justice Department will call it “peaceful protests”. Trust me, it’s a coming. pic.twitter.com/cC6g5KpvUx

According to Section 1507 of Title 18 U.S. Code, it is unlawful to protest near a; “…residence occupied or used by [a] judge, juror, witness, or court officer.” The reason is obvious; it is an attempt to unduly influence or, in this case, intimidate a member of the justice system.
What was done? Not a whole lot. The Biden administration encouraged peaceful protest, and then Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the White House didn’t have “…an official U.S. government position on where people protest.”
Increased Threat Level
The Department of Homeland Security eluded to increased threats against Supreme Court Justices and others in an unclassified memo dated May 13th. Included in this memo were possible threats to members of Congress, clergy, and health care providers.
The memo states these threats “…are likely to persist and may increase leading up to and following the issue of the Court’s official ruling.”
DHS said of the possible violence that they remain:
“…committed to working with our partners to identify and prevent all forms of terrorism and targeted violence, and to support law enforcement efforts to keep our communities safe.”
Still, DHS has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System bulletin warning of the increased probability of mass casualty events in light of the Roe v. Wade opinion.
“These targets could include public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents.”
The idea that we may be facing mass-casualty violence in the name of Roe v. Wade should cut to the core of all Americans regardless of position on abortion.
What a world we live in where if you disagree with something the default for some groups is violence.
More From Jane?
The sad reality is that it appears the norm has started to form of Americans enacting violence on other Americans in the name of whatever political or social position they hold. Is there a way out of this mess?
In the Night of Rage memo are calls for people to carry out their anger “physically” in what appears to be a call to action for their supporters. As the nation waits for the official opinion from the Supreme Court this month it’s hard not to wonder, what is coming next?
As I write this article news broke of a man with a gun, knife, and kit to break into houses that was apprehended in Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s neighborhood with the intent to kill him and one would assume his family.
Will Congress act and push for legislation that protects judges? Will the DOJ enforce laws already on the books? Will the Supreme Court be intimidated by these actions and let it influence their decisions?
The answers remain unclear, but it looks like it is going to be another violent summer for the U.S.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
