Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has drafted a proposed House bill that designates two radical abortion activist groups as domestic terror factions.
The bill identifies Jane’s Revenge and Ruth Sent Us after the groups have allegedly been involved in a series of violent attacks on the facilities of various pro-life organizations and also the recent attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The bill is titled the “Protecting Mothers and Babies from Terrorism Act” and is co-sponsored by Reps. Mary Miller (R-IL) and Andy Harris (R-MD).
A Greene spokesperson told reporters that the “Democrats’ war on women is real and it is now being waged with firebombs.”
The bill cites a long list of terror attacks that occurred since the leak of the draft opinion of Justice Samuel Alito in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in early May that led to violence that has continued through the release on Friday of the final decision of the court that finally reversed Roe v. Wade.
Greene posted a tweet with a video on Thursday evening describing the contents of the bill, just hours before the Supreme Court released the Dobbs ruling. She said, “No woman should ever feel fear to bring their child into the world. These radical pro-abortion groups must be stopped.”
On Friday morning, Greene was swarmed by media members and angry pro-abortion protesters as she walked to the Supreme Court about 15 minutes after the announcement of the Dobbs ruling.
She smiled as her staff blocked the yelling crowd and escorted her to a secure location. She said to the group, “I am so happy. It’s a blessing. It’s a miracle.”
The Protecting Mothers and Babies from Terrorism Act lays out firebombings and vandalism of pregnancy centers in Wisconsin, Washington state, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, and Virginia. Jane’s Revenge or Ruth Sent Us either claimed responsibility for each attack or left evidence indicating they committed the attacks.
The bill concludes by declaring the actions described as being “domestic terrorism” as defined in 18 U.S. Code § 2331. That provision in part describes domestic terrorism as “acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State” that appear to be intended to “intimidate or coerce a civilian population” or to “influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.”
