Rep. John Rose, House Republicans Call for Legal Action Against Attacks on Pro-Life Groups

Representative John Rose (R-TN-06) and more than 120 other Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to respond to multiple attacks on pro-life groups across the country.

The events have followed the leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion that signaled the group favors reversing Roe v. Wade.

“Americans have the right to disagree with their government and petition it peacefully,” said Rep. Rose in an emailed statement. “But coordinated, violent attacks against pro-life organizations do not fall under those protections and should be investigated as domestic terrorism. The Biden Administration was quick to maliciously and erroneously label concerned parents at school board meetings as domestic terrorists, so there should be no hesitation to label these agitators who spew violence against pro-life organizations as actual domestic terrorists to send the message that they will belatedly address the violence and mob rule taking place across the country.”

In Wisconsin, a pro-life group’s office was set on fire by someone who wrote, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”

Similarly, pro-abortion groups set fire to a pro-life pregnancy center in Buffalo.

“It is the job of the government to protect all citizens, even the ones who disagree with prevailing government ideology,” said Jim Harden, president of CompassCare Pregnancy Services, the office that was targeted in Buffalo. “Pro-life pregnancy centers are being targeted by pro-abortion terrorists because we believe that all people are made in the image of God, deserving of protection, including boys and girls in the womb. Continued silence serves only to embolden further acts of pro-abortion terrorism.”

At the same time, activists have protested outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices. One California man was found and arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house after devising a plot to murder the member of the judicial branch.
