“We are headed towards tragedy if law enforcement does not act,” said Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life Action and Students for Life of America President. “The incendiary and malignant comments of people like Hillary Clinton, comparing peaceful pro-life Americans to terrorists is case in point of the poison political climate being deliberately fostered by Corporate Abortion and their political allies. The Pro-Life Gen will not be silent in our defense of preborn children and their mothers. But let’s be clear, the Biden Administration’s negligence and toxic support of death by abortion is laying the groundwork for horrifying headlines and loss of life, should they not act in defense of all Americans starting today.”
The Pro-Life Gen Calls on Attorney General Merrick Garland & Law Enforcement to Protect Pro-Life Americans from the Domestic Terrorism of Pro-Abortion Jane’s Revenge
Bellevue, NE (12-03-2022) – This morning in Nebraska, the Students for Life Action (SFLAction) team arrived to host our Nebraska Political Leadership Workshop where we are gathering dozens of activists from across the state to strategize about how to use Students for Life’s Campaign for Abortion Free Cities to shut down Dr. Leroy Carhart’s infamous late-term abortion facility in the state and work towards the Sanctuary City Ordinance in Bellevue.
As SFLAction staff arrived at the event space to prepare for the day educating students on political processes, they saw a note taped to the front of the St. John Paul II Newman Center. The note is signed by Jane’s Revenge, and it reads:
“If our right to abortion in Bellevue is taken away due to the attempt to pass an abortion ban and it gets passed we will shoot up your Newman center with our new AR14 rifles.”
The note appears to be directed at SFLAction’s Campaign for Abortion Free Cities’ (AFC) work towards the Sanctuary City Ordinance in Bellevue. AFC exists to directly reduce abortions in our communities by serving women, promoting non-violent resources, reaching out to our neighbors, and changing hearts and minds. Since the March 2021 launch of the AFC campaign in Bellevue, we have reached 12,271 neighbors, held 2,212 in-person conversations with community members, activated over 1,000 people, and changed the minds of hundreds.
Our AFC team has been actively working towards Sanctuary City efforts with Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn and other local Pro-Life organizations on the ground and together, the local pro-life coalition is half way towards our goal of signatures to send the petition to City Council.

The Newman Center and SFLAction have contacted security since discovering the note to see if there is any footage and police are on the scene to help review footage and safeguard the event attendees so the day may proceed safely.
Students for Life has been calling on Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland to do his job in protecting all Americans as his office has repeatedly weaponized the law against those with pro-life views, either by neglect or attack.
“Sadly, the public discourse is changing for the worse, as peaceful protests turn more frequently into confrontations. Threats and acts of violence against pro-life activists are becoming increasingly common. Students for Life students and team members have endured everything from physical attacks and arson to bomb threats and intimidation, making security issues a vital concern and expense for pro-life events. When Justice Brett Kavanaugh—who was seen as a possible pro-life vote—was confirmed to the Supreme Court, protestors stormed the Court, banging on the doors. Outside the U.S., violent protests broke out in Poland and Latin America when those countries contemplated pro-life policies. Antifa has protested my own speaking tours and recently the Chicago March for Life.
“Some abortion supporters are pairing their advocacy for the violence of abortion with violent acts, which have a definite chilling effect on public discourse that must be overcome. When people are afraid to use their free speech rights, those rights don’t truly exist.”
