Nebraska AG urges feds to investigate attacks against anti-abortion groups
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson is urging the federal government to investigate “terroristic acts” against anti-abortion organizations.
In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, 19 attorneys general said his lack of action was “intolerable.”
Charities have been firebombed and anti-abortion groups have been terrorized after the draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked, the attorneys general say.
The FBI announced that it would begin to investigate the attacks.
The letter suggests that the Department of Justice begin investigating a pro-abortion rights group, Jane’s Revenge.
According to Peterson’s press release, the group has declared “open season” on anti-abortion organizations.
The attorneys general says the group claimed responsibility for attacks in Colorado, Massachusetts, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
“The FBI has more than enough resources to determine the organization’s members and to track down those carrying out these acts of violence, which qualify as terrorism under federal law,” the attorneys general write.
