A radical pro-abortion group is claiming responsibility for firebombing a pro-life group’s office in Wisconsin and it’s promising more violence nationwide. The threat of violence comes as pro-abortion extreme have targeted the homes of Supreme Court justices.
As LifeNews reported, abortion activists firebombed a pro-life group’s office in Madison, Wisconsin. A leftist radical threw Molotov cocktails into Wisconsin Family Action’s office in the capital city and a picture of the destruction shows the office heavily damaged from the bomb.
The pro-abortion terrorists responsible also vandalized the building and left a threatening message saying “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
Now,a radical pro-abortion group named Jane’s Revenge is saying it was responsible and is threatening increasingly violent attacks that extend beyond Wisconsin if its demands are not met, writing, “Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings.”
In a series of tweets, Bellingcat’s Robert Evans reported receiving a statement from a group called Jane’s Revenge, in which the organization took credit for the suspected arson.
Evans writes for Bellingcat, which is based in the Netherlands and describes itself as a collective of researchers and open-source journalists.
NBC15 News has not independently verified the contents of Evans’ tweets and are working to do so. The Madison Police Dept. stated it was aware that a group had claimed responsibility and that it was working with federal investigators to determine if the claim is true. The police department would not confirm if that group was Jane’s Revenge.
In his reporting, Evans explained the name of the group, Jane’s Revenge, is a reference to Jane Collective, which the Chicago-based NPR-affiliate WBEZ recently described as a group of activists in Chicago who helped provide abortion access to thousands of women who did not have legal access in the years leading up to the Roe v. Wade verdict in 1973.
During a news conference Monday, MPD Chief Shon Barnes did not identify any possible suspects or organizations linked to the incident, although investigators have said they believed the attack was targeted.
The threats are meant to shut down pro-life groups and pregnancy centers and stop them from working to ban abortions and save babies.

“They are issuing a 30 day ultimatum for all anti choice organizations and fake clinics (crisis pregnancy centers) to disband. They claim to have the ability to reach multiple states and repeat that the attack in Wisconsin was just a “warning,” the European reporter writes. “They conclude by noting they are made up of several organizations: “We are in your city. We are in every city. Your repression only strengthens our accompliceship and resolve.”
According to the local news station, the investigation is ongoing:
No arrests have been made in the suspected arson over the weekend at the office of an anti-abortion group, Barnes said in Monday’s news conference, during which he was joined by Madison Fire Dept. Asst. Chief Che Stedman, as well as agents with the FBI and ATF.
“I want to start off by saying there is no room for hate or violence in Madison, in fact there’s no room for hate or violence anywhere in our country,” Barnes said. “Hate or violence do not advance any cause and unfortunately we’re investigating the fruits of hate and violence in the form of an arson where a specific nonprofit group was targeted for their beliefs regarding the issue of abortion.”
Although Americans are in favor of overturning Roe and 11 recent polls show Americans are pro-life on abortion, abortion activists have engaged in violence, vandalism and heated protests in response to a leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that overturns Roe v. Wade. They hope to somehow persuade one or more Supreme Court justices to change their mind.
New reports show the Supreme Court majority to overturn Roe has reportedly not changed despite the leak of the draft of the opinion last week and pro-abortion violence and protests in the days following.
As all this is happening, Altio and his family have reportedly been moved to a location that will not be revealed. Last week, Alito canceled an appearance at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ judicial conference. Although no official reason was given for the cancellation, the move came only days after the leak.
Late Friday, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had a message for the radical abortion activists who think they can bully the Supreme Court into revising its draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade: You can’t bully us.
Thomas spoke at the 11th Circuit judicial conference in Atlanta where he discussed the Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion for the first time.
As a society, “we are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like,” Thomas said.
“We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.,” Thomas said, according to reports.
Chief Justice John Roberts spoke at the same conference Thursday, where he called the leak “absolutely appalling.” He, too, said the violence and attacks form pro-abortion activists would not influence the Supreme Court’s final decision.
Pro-life pregnancy centers and pro-life advocates already have been the targets of vandalism, violence and harassment this week in response to the news. At least one Catholic church has, too, and more seems likely in the days ahead. Abortion activists bombed a pro-life group’s office, causing extensive damage.
Abortion activists are trying to intimidate U.S. Supreme Court justices to change their mind and uphold Roe after the leaked draft opinion showed the majority voting to overturn the infamous 1973 ruling. The draft is not final, judges can change their minds, and it is not clear when the high court will issue its final ruling on the abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, but many believe the court will overturn Roe and allow states to protect unborn babies again.
Along with the violence of abortion against unborn babies, threats and violence against pro-life advocates also have increased in recent years. LifeNews.com has documented reports of hundreds of incidents in recent years, including bomb threats, assaults, death threats, arson and vandalism.
And violence by abortion activists likely will continue as the U.S. Supreme Court gets ready to issue its final ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health this summer. If the court overturns Roe, the Guttmacher Institute predicts that 26 states would ban abortions.
Since 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
