Abortion Activists, "Jane's Revenge," Threaten Catholic Centre and Church.
They wrote on a note: “If Our Right to Abortion is Taken Away, We Will Shoot You Up”
A Christian church and a Catholic ministry in Nebraska both received violent threats in early December. A note that threatened to “shoot” pro-lifers with “AR14 rifles” from the radical pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge was taped on the center.
The Newman Center at the University of Nebraska-Scott campus in Bellevue received the death threat Saturday morning ahead of a pro-life event with Students for Life of America.
On December 3rd, Christ Community Church in Omaha also received a threat of violence, also signed by “Jane’s Revenge,” according to WFIN.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, said they immediately called police and tried to find another location for their event. The meeting was to discuss passing pro-life ordinances to ban abortions in local cities and towns in Nebraska.
Hawkins posted a photo of the handwritten threat, taped on the Newman Center doorway, which read: “If our right to abortion in Bellevue is taken away due to the attempt to pass an abortion ban and it gets passed[,] we will shoot up your Newman center with our new AR14 rifles. Sincerely, Jane’s Revenge.”
Yesterday, our team at @sflaction received a death threat in Nebraska. But our training and strategy session to shut down the late-term abortion facility there continued on.— Kristan Hawkins (@KristanHawkins) December 4, 2022
This Sunday morning, our team partnered with the Frederick Douglass Foundation to wake…

On Saturday, the Omaha Police Department told the Star Herald that officers responded to the second threat at Christ Community Church, WFIN reports.
The Christian church shared with Fox News, how they explained the events: “Friends, earlier today, CCC staff found a threatening note taped to an outside door at CCC. The note claims to be from the abortion rights extremist group, Jane’s Revenge, and makes threats against our Lead Minister and the church relating to an abortion policy discussion taking place in the City of Bellevue.”
According to the message, at least one other church in Omaha also received a threatening letter. However, it did not mention the name, so it is not clear if it was a reference to the Newman Center or a third threat.
Both institutions said they are cooperating with police in their investigations. The University of Nebraska at Omaha Department of Public Safety, the Douglas County Sheriff and the Omaha Police Department are working together to investigate the threats, and plan to increase security.
“We take any threat of violence serious and will continue to do our due diligence to ensure a thorough investigation,” Omaha Police Lt. Neal Bonacci told news reporters.
Governor Pete Ricketts condemned the threats Sunday, saying on Twitter: "Since May, pregnancy resource centers and pro-life organizations have been threatened, vandalized, and even firebombed with Molotov cocktails. It's domestic terrorism, plain and simple."

“To-date, President Biden’s DOJ has failed to prosecute a single one of these attacks,” he continued. “Instead, they’re busy going after parents who attend school board meetings. The DOJ must begin holding those who threaten and attack pro-life organizations accountable.”
There have been over 150 other attacks since May when there was a leaked a draft of the Supreme Court ruling Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.
FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that most of the abortion-related attacks this year have targeted pro-life organizations. “Since the Dobbs decision, probably in the neighborhood of 70 percent of our abortion-related violence cases or threats cases are cases of violence or threats against … pro-life organizations,” he told a U.S. Senate committee in November.
Many pro-life organizations and churches are increasing security and Republican lawmakers are demanding action from the Biden administration.
