ABORTION ACCESS FRONT STATEMENT ON THE ROLE ANTI-ABORTION EXTREMISTS PLAYED IN THE TERRORISM ON OUR NATION’S CAPITOL
OVER 15 ANTI-ABORTION EXTREMISTS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED PARTICIPATING AT THE SIEGE ON THE CAPITOL, SOUNDING THE ALARM ABOUT THOUSANDS MORE GATHERING IN DC AGAIN ON JANUARY 29TH
Wherever extremists are gathered, you will find anti-abortion terrorists. We watched, we collated, and we identified who some of them were and where they were.
For years, Abortion Access Front has been tracking the movements of anti-abortion extremists, sounding the alarm on their intersections with white nationalists, anti-LGBT and anti-immigrant extremist groups. On January 6th, many of them participated in the insurrection at our Capitol and we have an ever growing database of who they are.
On January 29, Anti-abortion zealots are holding their own extremist rally, called the March For Life (M4L), which is an annual gathering of hundreds of thousands at the National Mall.
AAF strongly believes another extremist rally inciting hundreds of thousands of people with anti-abortion conspiracy theories and violent rhetoric could lead to more violence. This is a matter of national security.
Kat Green, AAF’s managing director and curator of our anti-abortion extremist database warns:
“For quite some time, we have watched anti-abortion leadership escalate their calls to arms and encouraging their followers to reject any government that does not agree with them. It is both terrifying, and not at all surprising, that we saw many of those leaders on site at the Capitol last Wednesday, acting out exactly what they have been threatening for years.”

There are moments in time when collective inaction leads to the most horrid series of acts in history. Join us now to learn more about the intersections of extremism, so we can fight against it, together as a nation.
