The FBI is also offering rewards of up to $25,000 for information regarding similar attacks on pregnancy centers across the nation.
FBI Director Christopher Wray commented on the new string of rewards for information regarding the attacks, saying, “Today’s announcement reflects the FBI’s commitment to vigorously pursue investigations into crimes against pregnancy resource centers, faith-based organizations, and reproductive health clinics across the country.”
“We will continue to work closely with our national, state, and local law enforcement partners to hold responsible anyone who uses extremist views to justify their criminal actions,” Wray added.
Jane’s Revenge is a pro-abortion group that has taken credit for numerous attacks against pro-life centers across the country, including the fire-bombing of the Wisconsin Family Council/Action’s Madison headquarters last year on Mother’s Day, The Wisconsin Daily Star previously covered. The group has been described as ‘militant.’
As previously reported by The Tennessee Star, “Jane’s Revenge” is a reference to the Jane Collective, a group that helped women obtain abortions before the Roe v. Wade decision, which was overturned by the Supreme Court last year.
The FBI is urging anyone with information pertaining to the attack on Nashville’s Hope Clinic for Women or any of the attacks across the nation to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), contact their local FBI office, or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.
