JACKSON, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Abortion supporters allegedly vandalized the offices of Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) and the Jackson Right to Life on Tuesday night.
A spray-painted message indicated the alleged vandals are part of the pro-abortion group “Jane’s Revenge.” In addition, the vandals broke windows and smashed the front door.
“Jane’s Revenge” threatens violence if a pending U.S. Supreme Court decision upends sweeping federal abortion allowances stemming from Roe v. Wade and returns abortion policy decisions back to the states. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to release an opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson [Mississippi] Women’s Health Organization case this month.
A leaked draft opinion appears to show the court intends to overturn the landmark case.
“It is shameful that President Biden and Speaker Pelosi have both refused to condemn these intimidation tactics from radical pro-abortion activists,” Walberg said in a press release. “This wave of violence across the country against pro-life organizations and individuals has got to stop.”
It appears President Biden and Speaker Pelosi aren’t the only ones remaining silent. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel have vowed to “fight like hell” for the legal right to abortion but have not spoken about this vandalism case.
Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey called out the governor and attorney general on Twitter.
When thugs threatened our governor, I immediately condemned them and made it clear there’s no place for violence in our political discourse. @GovWhitmer and @MIAttyGen should do the same now, and consider how their rhetoric could be inflaming a deeply divisive issue. https://t.co/o94gTgsFWZ

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has filed several lawsuits to protect the state’s right to a legal abortion, failing to acknowledge that the Supreme Court’s potential decision does not outlaw abortions; it simply returns regulations to individual states.
Legal experts have classified Whitmer’s lawsuits as “shams.”
