Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Green revealed that she is pushing for legislation to treat two abortion-rights groups as terrorist organizations.
Green posted a video on his Twitter page on Thursday announcing the bill while standing outside the Supreme Court building.
In the video, she argued that abortion-rights groups Jen’s Revenge and Ruth Send Us should be considered terrorist organizations, just like al-Qaeda.
she captioned the video: “As we prayerfully await the Supreme Court’s decision tomorrow, I have introduced legislation to designate pro-abortion organizations as terrorist organizations that have set women’s pregnancy centers on fire.”
“I am proud to introduce a bill that would declare the groups Ruth sent us and Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorist groups,” Green said in the video.
“These groups claim credit for the fire bombings and attacks on women’s pregnancy centers and resource centers.
“These are things that should never happen in America.”
“Just as we declare groups such as al-Qaeda terrorist organizations when they claim credit for attacking Americans or attacking people and imposing their will on others, we should consider these radical groups to be domestic terrorists. The organization should also declare.”

“No woman should ever be afraid to bring her child into the world. These radical pro-abortion groups must be stopped.
“I say this on the eve of the Supreme Court that will soon be issued to reverse their decision Roe vs. Wade,
“This is going to be a huge victory for the pro-life movement, unborn and moms-to-be in America.
“For too long women have been sold the lie that abortion is a way out of something they hadn’t planned for.
“But the true reality is that motherhood is the greatest gift any woman can ever receive.
