The Atlantic published a piece Friday that mocked conservatives for expressing concern about Jane's Revenge, a violent pro-abortion group that has targeted churches and pregnancy resource centers for arson and vandalism across the United States.
The article, titled "The Right's New Boogeyman," also has a provocative subtitle: "A mysterious pro-abortion-rights group is claiming credit for acts of vandalism around the country, and right-wing activists and politicians are eating it up."
"A mysterious pro-choice group called Jane’s Revenge has drawn attention to itself in recent months with a short series of strongly worded ‘communiqués’ promising violence," wrote Kaitlyn Tiffany, a staff writer at The Atlantic.
"'We are in your city. We are in every city,' it said. ‘Medical imperialism will not face a passive enemy,’" Tiffany quoted a Jane's Revenge missive as saying.
"Right-wing media outlets have provided ample coverage of this new threat, and anti-abortion politicians have demanded government action to address it," she wrote.
However, Tiffany questioned the validity of the threats. "But the group’s practical significance remains in question. Just how meaningful is Jane’s Revenge?" she asked.
