Ahead of what is certain to be an explosive Supreme Court decision that could overturn the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade case and return the power of abortion legislation to the states, law enforcement authorities across the nation are readying themselves for potential violence and civil unrest.
The preparations reportedly started as early as February 18 in Colorado, just eight days after a Feb. 10 draft opinion from the Supreme Court suggested the notorious Roe v. Wade decision would be reversed, according to a Yahoo News exclusive report.
That opinion was leaked and published by Politico in an unprecedented breach that has already led to an armed, violent clash between pro-choice activists and the Los Angeles Police Department. In the days following the leak, multiple high-profile personalities, including former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, have called for people to take to the streets.

It was exactly the kind of response the Colorado Information Analysis Center warned about in its February situational awareness bulletin, which was shared with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies across the nation on the Department of Homeland Security’s information-sharing platform.
“Law enforcement and public safety officials should anticipate an increase in abortion-related events, rallies, and protests with the potential for violence and criminal activity, particularly leading up to and directly following the Supreme Court’s decision in the Mississippi case… expected by June 2022,” the bulletin warned, adding that violent extremists “with motives unrelated to abortion, including groups or individuals interested in attacking large crowds” may use abortion-related protests to cause more mayhem.
The bulletin cited 2020 statistics from the National Abortion Federation which showed a 125% increase in assault and battery reports outside abortion clinics from 2019 to 2020. It also pointed to violent attacks in 2021, “including a Dec. 31, 2021, arson attack on a Planned Parenthood office in Knoxville, Tenn., and a reported bomb threat on Jan. 30, 2021, at an abortion clinic in Charlotte, NC,” Yahoo News reports.
Colorado has good reason for its concern.
In 2015, Colorado Springs was the site of one of the most deadly abortion-related attacks in U.S. history — a shooting in a Planned Parenthood clinic that left two civilians and one police officer dead.
“They had targets on their backs before, now it’s that much more,” a U.S. government official tasked with tracking potential threats in response to the SCOTUS decision told Yahoo.
According to the source, “disinformation” surrounding the leaked Supreme Court decision is already on the rise, with some social media posts suggesting the draft is already in effect.
“This could suggest that providing abortions is now illegal nationwide, which is not the case, and prompt attacks on such facilities,” Yahoo reports.
Meanwhile, DHS has been flagging recent calls for violence against abortion clinics, including a January post “by a suspected white supremacist calling on people to ‘actually bomb abortion mills’ and ‘assassinate’ medical providers” that was shared with “nearly a dozen federal agencies, including the FBI, ATF and CIA.”
What isn’t mentioned in the Yahoo report are the calls for violence against pro-life activists.
As the popular Libs of TikTok Twitter account has shown, Liberals aren’t afraid to openly call for or threaten violence.
In a disturbing montage of TikTok videos, pro-choice activists can be seen inciting nationwide violence.
“If they actually do this, yeah, that would be the time where rioting would be okay,” one hoodie-clad user stated. “I got the pitchforks, you get the gas and torches. Let’s f—ing do that sh-t.”
“There’s only one solution to this, to all of this, because it’s all interconnected,” claimed another. “Starts with V, ends with E, and it’s not ‘vote.'”

The violence has already spread from Downtown Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon, with Antifa setting up a “mini autonomous zone” in front of the federal courthouse on Tuesday.
Later that night, Antifa attacked government buildings and businesses and attempted to set the federal courthouse ablaze.

The rioting from the Left comes as President Joe Biden called the “MAGA crowd” the “most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history.”
