Marjorie Taylor Greene Wants Two Abortion-Rights Groups Labelled Terrorists

Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene revealed she is pushing legislation to brand two abortion-rights groups as terrorist organizations after they were accused of violence or threats.

Greene posted a video of her announcing the bill while standing outside the Supreme Court building on her Twitter page on Thursday.

In the video, she argued that the abortion-rights groups Jane's Revenge and Ruth Sent Us should be considered terrorist organizations in the same way Al-Qaeda is.

She captioned the video: "As we prayerfully await the decisions of the Supreme Court tomorrow, I introduced legislation to declare pro-abortion organizations, who have fire bombed women's pregnancy centers, as terrorist organizations."

"I am proud to introduce a bill that will declare the groups Ruth Sent Us and Jane's Revenge domestic terrorist groups," Greene said in the video.

"These groups have claimed credit for the fire bombings and attacks on women's pregnancy centers and resource centers.

"These are things that should never happen in America."

"In the same way we declare groups like Al-Qaeda terrorist organizations when they claim credit for attacking Americans or attacking people just to press and push their will on others, we should also declare these radical groups domestic terrorist organizations."

In early May, the headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action in Madison was attacked with a molotov cocktail thrown through a window that started a small fire. No one was hurt in the incident.

Robert Evans, an investigative reporter for the publication Bellingcat, wrote a series of tweets noting that a group calling themselves "Jane's Revenge" had taken responsibility.

Newsweek was not able to independently verify the group's authenticity. Little is known about the group, which passes most of its messages via its website, graffiti and flyers.

Concerns have also been raised about threats of violence by the abortion-rights group Ruth Sent Us.

According to a Fox News report, Ruth Sent Us has hinted at targeting its protests at Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barret's home, and church.

Earlier this month, the group's Twitter page argued that it was "committed to non-violence."

Greene continued to emphasize the importance of her bill and said it would be a great victory if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the historic case which legalized abortion nationwide.

"No woman should ever feel fear to bring their child into the world. These radical pro-abortion groups must be stopped.

"I say this on the eve of the Supreme Court soon to be releasing their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"This is going to be a great victory in America for the pro-life movement, for the unborn and for mothers.

"For too long women have been sold the lie that abortion is the way out of something that they didn't plan.

"But the true reality is that motherhood is the greatest gift that any woman could ever be blessed with.

"I am asking for your support on this bill and I'm honored to introduce it."
