Pro-abortion extremists apparently firebombed a pro-life advocacy group's office in Madison, Wis., days after a leaked decision revealed that the Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade next month.
The arsonists appear to have thrown a Molotov cocktail early Sunday morning through the window of Wisconsin Family Action, where a fire was reported shortly before 6 a.m., according to the Associated Press. Investigators later found the remnants of the cocktail. No one was injured. Local law enforcement said the nonprofit was likely targeted for its opposition to abortion. "If abortions aren't safe, then you aren't either" was found spray-painted on the building's facade.
Mainstream media sources just days earlier said that pro-abortion protests were "mostly peaceful." CBS on May 6 usedthe phrase to describe protesters, one day after pro-abortion activists published the home addresses of six conservative Supreme Court justices, five of whom reportedly voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Julaine Appling, the president of Wisconsin Family Action, called the attack a "direct threat" considering it occurred the same week as the High Court opinion leak. Had the arsonists struck during the day, she added, they could have harmed staff.
