Pro-Abortion Anarchists Call For ‘Night of Rage’

On May 30, 2022, a pro-abortion extremist group calling itself Jane’s Revenge posted an online manifesto calling for a “night of rage” in the United States if the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision was overturned.

The group’s manifesto openly calls for political violence. It encourages pro-abortion sympathizers to “get angry,” to “express this madness fully and with ferocity,” and to “confront state forces of evil and domination.” After falsely connecting the pro-life movement to the despicable mass killing that occurred on May 24, 2022 in Uvalde, Texas, the manifesto calls upon pro-abortion individuals to take to the streets on the evening after the Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. The manifesto says: “Whatever form your fury takes, the first step is feeling it. The next step is carrying that anger out into the world and expressing it physically. Consider this your call to action. On the night the final ruling is issued—a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently—we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark. Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.” The manifesto concludes with the following message: “To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.”

After having taken responsibility for several arson attacks against pro-life organizations around the country, Jane’s Revenge openly threatened to escalate its violence: “From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target. But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are. The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive.”

At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we deplore threats and acts of violence, regardless of one’s position on the sanctity of life or any other issue. We continue to call upon law enforcement to recognize the seriousness of these threats and to act accordingly. Also, we call upon the pro-life movement not to retaliate against attacks from Jane’s Revenge or to fight evil with evil.
