A Wisconsin pro-life group’s office was set on fire early Sunday and vandalized with abortion-themed graffiti in what authorities are investigating as an arson.
The Wisconsin Family Action headquarters suffered fire damage after someone threw a Molotov cocktail inside the building in Madison, which was discovered after a passerby saw flames coming out of the building at about 6 a.m., according to police.
“Arson investigators are working with fire department officials to determine an exact cause,” said the Madison police incident report. “A molotov cocktail, which did not ignite, was thrown inside the building. It also appears a separate fire was started in response.”
In addition, the building was spray-painted with the message: “If abortions aren’t safe than you aren’t either.” No injuries were reported.
Police said that federal investigators were briefed on the attack, and linked the incident to Monday’s leaked Supreme Court draft overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide.
This attack is abhorrent and should be condemned by all. https://t.co/CGnPmMJUmo
