‘Night of Rage’ looms after SCOTUS abort decision

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) calls on President Biden to lead the “Department of Justice to Deter and Prevent Violence Against Supreme Court Justices, Churches, and Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers,” on the heels of the landmark Supreme Court decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. A pro-abortion group, Jane’s Revenge, had previously announced its intention to carry out a “Night of Rage” that would follow the decision.

McCarthy Posted his appeals to the president via Twitter shortly after the Supreme Court announced its decision on the Dobbs case, reversing the long-standing 1973 ruling Roe V.Wade decision. He implored Biden to act immediately before “it’s too late.”

On Wednesday, Lila Rose – the founder and president of pro-life organization Live Action – said in a tweet that the Department of Homeland Security warned pregnancy centers and Catholic churches, “telling them prepare for a “Night of Rage” by pro-abortion groups promising “extreme violence” on the night of the Dobbs decision. »

The Dobbs decision comes after an unprecedented leak of the draft decision, which both undermined the sanctity of the tribunal and indicated Roe vs. Wade would be overturned when the decision was officially made. Following the leak, a number of pregnancy centers and Catholic churches across the country were targeted. The attacks ranged from suspected arson to smashed windows to graffiti such as “If abortion isn’t safe, neither are you” and “Jane’s Revenge”.

Additionally, conservative Supreme Court justices attended protests outside their homes following the leak, with a man arrested for his alleged plan to attempt the assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, one of the justices. who ended up voting to cancel Roe vs. Wade.

Now that the decision is official, far-left activists like David Hogg are call on the left to mobilize in protest.

A National Guard spokesperson told Breitbart News that “The District of Columbia National Guard (DCNG) does not have a request for assistance (RFA) from the DC government or any of our federal partners. “.

“As always, DCNG remains ready to provide support to the citizens of the District, the DC government, and federal agency partners in the event we receive a Department of Defense-approved RFA,” the statement continued.
