The FBI is renewing its warnings today that Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide could find themselves targets of violent attacks.
A newly-released FBI Intelligence Assessment says, “it is likely criminal or suspicious incidents will continue to be directed against reproductive health care providers, their staff and facilities,” reports CBS News’ Jeff Pegues.
The incidents include reported cyber-attacks, threats and arson. The FBI believes the incidents are, “consistent with the actions of lone offenders using tactics of arsons and threats all of which are typical of the pro-life extremist movement”.
The warning comes as GOP and Democratic members of Congress grapple with measures to remove Planned Parenthood from the overall government spending bill.
