Attacks against pro-life entities and related incidents in the United States in 2022

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 2 October 2022

On 2 May 2022 a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion was leaked to the public. This draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization proposed to reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that had implemented abortion on demand throughout the United States. Protests and threats against the Supreme Court justices ensued, demanding that the majority not rule against Roe v. Wade. The majority was not swayed and on 24 June 2022 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution requires abortion legislation must generally be left to the states.

Since the opinion leak there have been many attacks against pro-life entities in the United States including churches, pro-life pregnancy centers, and pro-life organization offices. The majority of these attacks have been vandalism with a small number of arsons and assaults--so far some injuries but no fatalities have resulted. Unfortunately the Department of Justice under the Biden administration has declined to assertively push back against this violence. This failure has been particularly egregious with respect to the safety of Supreme Court Justices, where the administration has failed to enforce 18 U.S.C. ยง 1507 prohibiting such protests at their homes. This is the context of (so far) one thwarted attack on a Justice.

The table below lists attacks since 2 May 2022. It is not intended to cover the longer history of abortion-related terrorist attacks in the United States. (This history includes 7 killed and 8 injured in anti-abortion terrorist attacks from 1993 to 1998 and 2 killed in a pro-abortion attack in 2009. See this page for the most significant attacks.) Attacks listed here are limited to those with stated pro-abortion motives plus a small number with uncertain motive (these are identified accordingly). Attacks known to have unrelated motives are excluded. Listed attacks range in severity from theft or vandalism of signs to the arson destruction of a 145-year-old church building, shooting of a pro-life campaign volunteer, serious injuries to two police officers, and attempted assassination of a Supreme Court justice. This list is incomplete with respect to violent or disruptive protests. It should be noted that the smaller scale incidents of vandalism or theft of signs occurred with low frequency prior to May 2022, plus that many of these incidents in May-July 2022 are specific to signs concerning a general vote on a pro-life amendment to the Kansas constitution which was defeated on 2 August.

The group Jane's Revenge has claimed credit on their web site for 17 attacks, but the FBI has made no arrests to date in any of these cases [89].

Some summary statistics:

The graph below shows numbers of weekly incidents (weeks starting on Fridays), with peaks immediately after the opinion draft leak on 2 May and the Supreme Court ruling on 24 June.

Sources are listed after the table. Some particularly useful lists of incidents are:
