This means that the abortion group, which has committed numerous acts of vandalism described by some as hate crimes, will be treated with the same speech restrictions against “praise, support, and representation” applied to groups such as the Islamic State and neo-Nazis.
The memory was sent to Facebook moderators on June 25 and describes Jane’s Revenge as “a far-left extremist group that has claimed responsibility on its website for an attack against an anti-abortion group’s office in Madison, Wisconsin in May 2022. The group is responsible for multiple arson and vandalism attacks on pro-life institutions.”
Terrorist groups are subject to Facebook’s strictest “Tier 1” speech limits reserved for the most dangerous and violent entities in the world including hate groups, drug cartels, and mass murderers. Speech advocates and civil society groups have criticized meta’s secrecy around its Dangerous Individuals and Organizations list, claiming that the list has a bias towards U.S. governmental priorities.
The attack committed by Jane’s Revenge in Wisconsin against the Family Action’s headquarters resulted in an arson fire and graffiti denouncing the pro-life group. Facebook has classified the attack as a “Violating Violent Event,” which the company uses as a speech restriction distributed to its content moderation staff to limit discussion across its platforms.
A May 11 memo obtained by the Intercept reads:
We are internally classifying this as a Violating Violent Event (General Designation). All content praising, supporting or representing the event and/or perpetrator(s) should be removed from the platform
The office of a conservative political organization that lobbies against abortion rights was vandalized and damaged by fire in Madison, Wisconsin. A group called Jane’s Revenge took credit for the attack.
Jane’s Revenge Plans Roe v. Wade Reveal ‘Night of Rage,’ ‘Carrying that Anger Out into the World Expressing it Physically’
In other words: DOMESTIC TERRORISM!
The radical pro-abortion group, Jane’s Revenge, is planning more acts of domestic terrorism when the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade is revealed, dubbed a “Night of Rage: An Autonomous Call to Action Against Patriarchal Supremacy.”
The group posted its plans on the Anarchists Library website at the end of May in expectation of the ruling, expected sometime in June.
Here are some excerpts from the manifesto:
This is an event that should inspire rage in millions of people who can get pregnant…and yet, the response thus far has been tepid.
We have agonized over this apparent absence of indignation. Why is it that we are so afraid to unleash hell upon those who are destroying us? Fear of state repression is valid, but this goes deeper than that.
Whatever form your fury takes, the first step is feeling it.
The next step is carrying that anger out into the world and expressing it physically.
Consider this your call to action.
On the night the final ruling is issued——a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently——we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.
We have selected a time of 8 pm for actions nationwide to begin, but know that this is a general guideline. There may be other considerations involved in planning time and place. We do not claim to speak for every community or crew. We are simply calling out to you. And we hope you answer our cries.
The manifesto says that if there are any “cis males allies” who want to take part, okay, “but Do not police us. Do not tell us what is and isn’t appropriate.”
The manifesto concludes, “To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.”
More than 100 Republicans have signed a letter asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to instruct the Department of Justice to investigate this group in relation to attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers across the country as domestic terrorists. Source
As Paul Harvey would say: “Now here’s the rest of the story” and so will the readers of this article know the true story about “Jane Roe” whose real name was Norma McCorvey.
Washington, DC —Norma McCorvey, the former “Roe” of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion, is filing an historic motion today to re-open her case and request that it be overturned. The filing is based on changes in law and factual conditions since the high court handed down its decision 30 years ago.
As a party to the original litigation, Norma McCorvey has the right to petition the court to re-open the original case based on changes in factual conditions or changes in law that make the prior decision “no longer just,” said Allan E. Parker, Jr., lead attorney for the Texas-based Justice Foundation.
The motion was filed at a news conference Tuesday. The motion asks for a reversal of the judgment that was first entered 33 years ago yesterday by the Dallas Federal Court. McCorvey is asking that the judgment in the original Roecase be set aside.
“I long for the day that justice will be done and the burden from all of these deaths will be removed from my shoulders,” McCorvey said. “I want to do everything in my power to help women and their children. The issue is justice for women, justice for the unborn, and justice for what is right.”
The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned its own precedents using Rule 60(b)(5) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (Rule 60), most recently in the 1997 decision of Agostini v. Felton. In that case, the high court used a post-judgment motion by a party to overturn two of its own 12-year-old precedents.
Norma McCorvey was joined at the press conference by her lead attorney, Mr. Parker, by co-counsel Harold Cassidy of New Jersey, and by post-abortive women, who will provide testimony about how abortion has harmed them. These women, many of whom are witnesses in the Rule 60 Motion, want others to know how abortion has negatively impacted women’s lives, including their physical and emotional health.
