The Department of Homeland Security issued a warning on Friday about the likelihood of domestic violent extremism by pro-abortion activists upset by the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
The department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis sent a memo to law enforcement, private security partners, and first responders which was obtained by Axios.
The memo states that government officials, notably judges, were at the greatest risk. Faith-based organizations and reproductive health care centers were also deemed to be at risk.
It suggests that some states could be at increased risk levels for multiple weeks.
It also reveals the department is aware of “at least 11 incidents of vandalism threatening violence targeting religious facilities perceived as being opposed to abortion.”
The memo follows a similar memo that was issued following the leaked draft opinion indicating the court was preparing to overturn Roe v. Wade.
It also follows an assassination attempt on conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh. At the beginning of the month, an armed man with a variety of tools and weapons was arrested after approaching the Justice’s family home. He admitted to police he was upset by the abortion draft and Kavanaugh’s stance on gun rights.
