FBI Releases Video of Suspects Who Vandalized Atlanta Church With Pro-Abortion Threat, Offers $10,000 Reward for Info

The FBI has released photos and videos of suspects who allegedly vandalized a historic black church in Atlanta with a pro-abortion threat.

The Ebenezer Baptist Church Heritage Sanctuary was painted with the Jane’s Revenge slogan, “if abortions aren’t safe, neither are you,” on July 3.

Jane’s Revenge has been linked to vandalism, firebombings, and arson at pregnancy centers and churches across the country.

The agency also announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to arrests.

“In the late hours of July 3, 2022, a group of 10 individuals approached the Ebenezer Baptist Church dressed all in black,” the FBI said.” The group stopped in the location by the church where spray paint was later discovered. The spray paint read: ‘If abortions aren’t safe neither are you.'”

“The group then walked together to a concealed area, and re-remerged without the dark clothing,” the agency’s release added. “The group then split up, and four of the individuals went in one direction and six of the individuals went in another direction. Cameras in the area recorded the activity.”

The vandalism occurred just days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe V. Wade.

The FBI’s Atlanta Division and the Atlanta Police Department have asked anyone with information regarding the vandalism or any of the suspects to contact 1-800-CALL-FBI or to send investigatory tips to Tips.FBI.gov.

In a manifesto posted by Jane’s Revenge on June 15, the group vowed to escalate their attacks. They also took credit for arsons and vandalism at pregnancy centers in Madison WI, Ft. Collins CO, Reisertown MA, Olympia WA, Des Moines IA, Lynwood WA, Washington DC, Ashville NC, Buffalo NY, Hollywood FL, Vancouver WA, Frederick MA, Denton TX, Gresham OR, Eugene OR, Portland OR, among others.

They stated, “we promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.”

“From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target. But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are,” the post stated. “Through attacking, we find joy, courage, and strip the veneer of impenetrability held by these violent institutions.”

The FBI announced on June 17 that they are investigating the attacks as “potential acts of domestic violent extremism.”

Catholic Vote is tracking the attacks on churches and pregnancy centers since the draft opinion leaked in early May.
