Army of God
The Army of God is an "anti-abortion group characterized by paramilitary tactics and linked to incidences of murder, bombings, arson and kidnapping that date back to the early 1980s. The Army of God is responsible for distributing a manual that supplies detailed instructions for attacking abortion clinics, manufacturing bombs and cutting off the hands of abortion doctors.
"The group also glorifies those who kill workers at women's reproductive health clinics, like Paul J. Hill, a Presbyterian minister convicted of killing two abortion clinic workers in Florida in 1993, and James Kopp, who is charged with murdering a doctor in New York. The Army of God also claims affiliation with the notorious Eric Robert Rudolf, who [was] wanted in connection with the 1996 Olympic Park bombing and suspected of 2 other bombings in Atlanta."
