While the brief states that the most pressing threats will be directed against state and federal officials, it also warns of attacks against pro-life organizations and people.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – An intelligence brief released by the Department of Homeland Security on Friday predicts that terrorist attacks could continue “for weeks” after the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade.
“Some domestic violent extremists (DVEs) will likely exploit the recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade to intensify violence against a wide range of targets,” the brief states. “We expect violence could occur for weeks following the release, particularly as DVEs may be mobilized to respond to changes in state laws and ballot measures on abortion stemming from the decision. We base this assessment on an observed increase in violent incidents across the United States following the unauthorized disclosure in May of a draft majority opinion on the case.”
