Feminist Majority Foundation President Eleanor Smeal and National Abortion Federation Executive Director Vicki Saporta Reveal Anti-Abortion Terrorist Ring.

Authorities have only just begun to expose the far-reaching, organized network of extremists who have long aided and abetted James Charles Kopp and others who commit violent crimes against abortion providers and clinics. We call on law enforcement to continue to crack this network. This investigation must also reach, expose, and convict the financial backers, supporters, and safe house sponsors who have assisted these terrorists.

Vicki Saporta, Executive Director, National Abortion Federation


WHAT: PRESS CONFERENCE
Leaders will further describe the anti-abortion terrorist ring and its impact, in anticipation of more arrests. Smeal and Saporta will also urge law enforcement to continue investigating, arresting, and dismantling the ring.
