Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) warned Jane Fonda that the Capitol Police will be paying her a visit shortly over her recent controversial comments about murdering pro-life politicians on “The View.”
As Slay News reported, Fonda caused outrage with the comments when she suggested that “murder” was a solution to opposition to the Democrats’ pro-abortion agenda.
Jane Fonda just went on the View and said Pro-Life politicians need to be "murdered" because of their views on abortion.

Luna said: “Unfortunately, for Ms. Fonda, Capitol Police takes this issue very seriously, as do I and many of my pro-life Republican colleagues so I’m sure the Capitol Police will be investigating and she will be having to answer for her comments.”
Speaking during an appearance on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” the congresswoman revealed that she has already received threats.
“The individual that made this comment actually posted it under her video of ‘The View,’ saying that the only good conservative and Trump supporter was a dead one,” she said about one threat.
Speaking about “The View,” Luna said: “They are supposed to pride themselves on being a show that promotes women’s viewpoints, right?
“Yeah, if you are pro-life, they want to essentially promote someone that’s calling for your murder.
“For people to go on national news outlets and make these calls of violence simply because they don’t like the fact that we are taking stands to protect life, these people are unhinged.”
After a massive backlash, Fonda scrambled to walk back her comments by claiming that it was a joke.
“While women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on The View was obviously made in jest,” she alleged.
“My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room – and to anyone watching – that I was using hyperbole to make a point.
“Women across the country are facing real threats when it comes to our bodies, and people lose faith in our mission to protect women when others choose to focus on tangential issues and passing jokes instead of the actual problem at hand,” Fonda said.
Today on @TheView, Jane Fonda called for the murder of pro-life Americans.
The hosts claimed Fonda deserves a Nobel Prize & laughed-off her heinous remarks.
To the pro-life Americans all across our great country, stay strong & know I will always have your back on Capitol Hill. pic.twitter.com/QwTRQ7N4pl

Hanoi Jane was also reported to the FBI by Republican Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
Greene said: “Jane Fonda (and many Democrats) want you and me “murdered” for fighting to protect the most innocent in the womb.
“Believe Democrats when they say the quiet part out loud. Sounds like they want us dead.
“The @FBI and @TheJusticeDept have targeted Pro-Life protestors for praying outside of abortion clinics.
“They better step up and hold @Janefonda and @TheView accountable for calling for the murder of Pro-Life Politicians like me.
“I will not be voting to fund the FBI and DOJ.
“Unapologetic Pro-Life Politician here.
“I routinely get death threats because of the nasty women on The View and the things they say about me.
“But calling for us to be assassinated makes The View, the hosts, the producers, the network, the advertisers, and everyone involved responsible for death threats, attacks, and potential murders of Pro-Life politicians and activists.
“I am reporting this.”
Unapologetic Pro-Life Politician here. 🙋♀️
I routinely get death threats because of the nasty women on The View and the things they say about me.
But calling for us to be assassinated makes The View, the hosts, the producers, the network, the advertisers, and everyone involved… https://t.co/Vsa7tik8zg
