The Department of Homeland Security warned “faith-based institutions” of an increased threat of terrorism by pro-abortion radicals following the Supreme Court landmark ruling overturning Roe v. Wade Friday.
“These targets could include public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents,” the National Terrorism Advisory System report read.
Since the draft opinion was leaked to Politico, there was an uptick in gruesome attacks on pro-life groups and crisis pregnancy centers.
Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) told the Todd Starnes Show earlier this month about the planned “Night of Rage” that is
“I firmly believe that Washington’s going to turn into a completely overrun, mob rule type environment when that happens,” Steube said.
After the decision was announced Friday morning, many are raising concerns that pro-abortion radicals may riot and target religious meetings this weekend.
According to the Catholic News Agency, the report came days after the DHS allegedly directly warned Catholic Bishops that churches could be targets if Roe was overturned.
Writing for the American Conservative, Rod Dreher said, “Homeland Security has officially notified the bishops there are credible threats to the safety of Catholic churches, clergy, and bishops if the Supreme Court overturns Roe. Violence has been called for beginning the night such a decision is handed down.”
The warning comes after pro-life organizations have been targets of attacks from pro-abortion extremists in the wake of a leaked draft opinion in May that suggested Roe would be overturned.
President Biden called for protesters to be “peaceful, peaceful, peaceful” in a speech to Americans Friday afternoon.
