FBI Investigates after Attacks on 52 Pro-Life Organizations and Churches in 46 Days

After 46 days and 52 attacks on pro-life organizations (See Map below) and churches, the FBI announced Friday that it is “investigating” the incidents; this was reported by the Washington Times. Republican senators and members of Congress have asked the Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate. The attacks came after the Supreme Court's opinion that Roe vs. Wade should be overturned was leaked. 

Here is the full FBI statement:

The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country. 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.

 A group of nine conservative leaders recently sent a letter to the Department of Justice demanding action. This was followed by a strongly-worded letter from Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), the ranking member for the subcommittee on Criminal Justice and Counterterrorism, demanding the resignation of Attorney General Merrick Garland over the DOJ’s inaction. In a Friday tweet, GOP members of the House Homeland Security Committee expressed frustration, noting that the FBI’s investigation was “well overdue.”

“This extremist behavior threatens our homeland security which is why Homeland GOP is demanding answers from [the Department of Homeland Security] on its response efforts,” the Republican members stated.

The pro-abortion extremist group known as “Jane’s Revenge,” which has already claimed responsibility for multiple arson and vandalism attacks on pro-life organizations, published a letter on Tuesday declaring that “the leash is off” as it vowed to continue attacks.
