Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) led a letter, also signed by U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and U.S. Representatives Dan Bishop (R-NC), Ted Budd (R-NC), Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Greg Murphy (R-NC), and David Rouzer (R-NC), to Attorney General Merrick Garland urging the DOJ to forcefully condemn the ongoing violence against pro-life and religious groups and prosecute the criminals engaging in these attacks to the fullest extent of the law.

    "On June 7, radical pro-abortion activists targeted Mountain Area Pregnancy Services (MAPS) in Asheville, North Carolina," the members wrote. "These violent criminals shattered windows at the organization, vandalized the building with red paint, and threatened agency staff with the following message in red spray paint: "If abortions aren't safe, neither are you!" On June 15, a radical organization called "Jane's Revenge" claimed responsibility for this violent attack and 15 others nationwide, and promised to take "increasingly drastic measures" before declaring "open season" on pro-life pregnancy centers."

    The members continued, "This admission of guilt and threat of further violence is chilling. According to a June 16 report, there have been more 40 nationwide incidents of political violence against pro-life individuals and organizations including pro-life pregnancy centers and religious institutions since the Dobbs leak. Further, pro-abortion activists have targeted the homes of Supreme Court Justices for aggressive protests. The heated rhetoric from activists and their advocates in the liberal, mainstream media have fostered an environment of violence that resulted in the foiled plot to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh."

    "We ask that DOJ forcefully condemn the ongoing violence against pro-life and religious groups and prosecute the criminals engaging in these attacks to the fullest extent of the law," the members concluded. "With the release of the Dobbs opinion, it is incumbent on you to take action to show these criminals they will be held responsible for their violent acts, lest there be another wave of violence. The American people need to know and understand your commitments to protecting them from political violence carried out by pro-abortion extremists."
