(KNX) — Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Friday in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case, overturning abortion rights established by Roe v. Wade, the well-known international hacker group Anonymous said on Monday that anti-abortion organizations "will be attacked daily to ensure they have no safe space on the internet."

Lorian Synaro, from Anonymous, posted the claims to Twitter in a thee-part thread, and said that the SCOTUS decision "is dangerous and unacceptable."

"The US supreme court decision to overturn #RoeVsWade is dangerous and unacceptable," Synaro tweeted. "This decision puts millions of American women at risk. It is the direct result of the rise of reactionary and ultra-conservative forces in all spheres of society. #RoeOverturned

"We must fight once, and for good the reactionary forces and ultra-conservative organizations who aims to control women's bodies and freedom. #Anonymous has always been fighting for women's rights and will be once again fighting those who have declared war on women."

Synaro then referenced Jane's Revenge, a militant pro-abortion rights group, who called for a "night of rage" in a blog post on May 30 if the Supreme Court were to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"Anti-choice organizations will be attacked daily to ensure they have no safe space on the internet," Synaro tweeted. "We want revenge on behalf the millions of women whose life will be impacted by the decision of the supreme court. We want revenge. We want #JanesRevenge! #OpJane reengaged."

Jane's Revenge has threatened anti-abortion groups and has claimed responsibility for a number of actions, including vandalism and firebombing, according to their blogs and Newsweek.

"Now the leash is off," Jane's Revenge said in a blog on June 15. "And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue. We have demonstrated in the past month how easy and fun it is to attack. We are versatile, we are mercurial, and we answer to no one but ourselves. We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures."

"From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target," the group added. "But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are. The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive. We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat. We did not want this; but it is upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionally."

After the initial tweets, Synaro followed that up with a post showing that the National Right to Life website was shut down, and said "this is just the beginning."

"National Right to Life, one of the largest anti-choice organizations in the US has been taken offline. This is just the beginning. We want Jane's revenge!," Synaro tweeted.

The NRLC website was still down as of Monday evening.
