DHS bulletin warns about Supreme Court threats from abortion advocates

The Department of Homeland Security warned that the United States could be seeing threats courtesy of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision in an abortion case, CNN reported Tuesday. 

The ruling is expected in the next couple of weeks. A draft ruling leaked to Politico in May showed the a majority of justices had signed on to a decision which would overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Given a high-profile U.S. Supreme Court case about abortion rights, individuals who advocate both for and against abortion have, on public forums, encouraged violence, including against government, religious, and reproductive healthcare personnel and facilities, as well as those with opposing ideologies,” the department warned in a bulletin.

In the memo, DHS also expressed concern that “election year misinformation” could drive violence.

“One of the key upcoming events that we are worried about are first and foremost the mid-term elections,” a senior official warned warned.

“As the United States enters mid-term election season this year, we assess that calls for violence by domestic violent extremists directed at democratic institutions, political candidates, party offices, election events, and election workers will likely increase,” the bulletin said.

However, the DHS acknowledged that violence from the left over abortion was a more likely driver of violence.

The official told CNN that “going forward, we’re concerned that grievances related to restricting abortion access in general could fuel a broader response.”

This is natural when you consider the response the draft decision has created.

Nor, indeed, have the threats let up.

On Wednesday, a man carrying a gun and a knife was arrested early Wednesday near the house of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and allegedly planned to kill the judge, according to an affidavit filed in federal court.

Nicholas John Roske, 26, has been charged with attempted murder, according to The Washington Post.

In addition, a crisis pregnancy center in Wisconsin was firebombed by a group calling itself “Jane’s Revenge.” Similar attacks have happened in New York, Oregon and Washington, D.C.
