House action follows nationwide wave of violence, vandalism, and intimidation by abortion activists in 2022
WASHINGTON — The United States House of Representatives passed a congressional resolution on Wednesdaty condemning the nationwide wave of violence, property damage, threats, trespassing, and intimidation against pro-life organizations in 2022 by pro-abortion activists in the wake of the Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.
The resolution was sponsored by 136 House Republicans led by House Republican Conference Vice Chairman Mike Johnson (LA-04), and is the fifth piece of legislation to pass the House so far this year.
“Since there has been so little accountability for the leaked draft Dobbs opinion and ensuing violence and intimidation against pro-lifers, we are making the position of Congress crystal clear: violence, property damage, threats, and intimidation tactics must be condemned, and these clear violations of federal and state laws must be prosecuted,” Johnson said. “I thank Speaker McCarthy and our entire House Republican leadership team for making this resolution one of the first priorities of the 118th Congress.”
