Thursday 16 June 2022 10:55 PM Radical pro-abortion group 'Jane's Revenge' declares 'open season' on pro-life ... trends now
Radical pro-abortion group 'Jane's Revenge' has declared 'open season' on pro-life clinics as it described in a letter posted this week how 'easy and fun' it is to attack them after claiming responsibility for a string of vandalism and arson attacks.
The attacks, mostly lodged at Christian faith-based pregnancy crisis centers, have taken place over the past few weeks in the wake of the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion suggesting the court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Clinics have been tagged with renditions of the messages 'Jane's Revenge' or 'If abortions aren't safe, neither are you.'
In a letter dated June 14 and posted to the Jane's Revenge website on Wednesday, the group claimed responsibility for the attacks as they pointed to a supposed 30-day deadline for all pro-life groups to cease operations, warning them that 'your thirty days expired yesterday.'

'We were unsurprised to see thirty days come and thirty days pass with no sign of consilience or even bare-minimum self-reflection from you.'
'History may not repeat itself, but it certainly rhymes, and we've already seen such stanzas where medical autonomy is stripped away, humanity is increasingly criminalized, and merely surviving becomes largely untenable.'
The letter comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to announced their decision in a Mississippi abortion case this month.
The decision may overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that recognized a women's constitutional right to have an abortion.
'We offered an honourable way out,' the letter continued. 'You could have walked away. Now the leash is off. And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue.'
The group boasted about several of the attacks, including two of the most recent ones that happened on June 7 when a Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, New York was firebombed and a Mountain Area Pregnancy Services center in Asheville, NC was vandalized.
The letter described how 'easy and fun it is to attack' the centers as the group vowed to take 'increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures' following the deadline's expiration.
'Those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti,' the letter threatened.

In the letter, which claims that Jane's Revenge is 'not one group but many,' and has disseminated 'communiqués in locations across the country, but mainly in the Pacific Northwest.
They've claimed responsibility for various attacks in Madison, Wisconsin; Ft. Collins, Colorado; Des Moines, Iowa; Hollywood, Florida; Denton, Texas; and Washington, D.C.
They also claimed to have attacked Portland, Eugene and Gresham in Oregon, along with Olympia, Lynwood and Vancouver in Washington state, and Reisterstown and Frederick in Maryland.
'From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target. But until you do, it's open season, and we know where your operations are,' the letter reads, with the group adding that it appeals to anyone 'with the urge to paint, to burn, to cut, to jam' to commit violence.
'The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive. We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat. We did not want this; but it is upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionally. We exist in confluence and solidarity with all others in the struggle for complete liberation,' the letter reads.
'Our recourse now is to defend ourselves and to build robust, caring communities of mutual aid, so that we may heal ourselves without the need of the medical industry or any other intermediary. Through attacking, we find joy, courage, and strip the veneer of impenetrability held by these violent institutions.'

In the letter posted this week, Jane's Revenge claimed responsibility for vandalizing the Agape Pregnancy Center in Des Moines, Iowa on June 2.
Vandals broke two windows at the center and used black and red spray paint to write 'God loves abortions' and 'fake clinic' on the walls.
In the message posted to social media, Jane's Revenge said the vandalism was 'fun and easy,' the Des Moines Register reported.
The two most recent attacks claimed to have been carried out by Jane's Revenge were on June 7 in Buffalo, New York and Asheville, NC.
