(Worthy News) – The Wisconsin Family Action anti-abortion organization was targeted Sunday when a Molotov cocktail was thrown into its building and a threatening message was spray-painted on an office wall. The attack took place following last week’s leaked US Supreme Court draft opinion that its 1973 Roe v Wade ruling which legalized abortion up to viability should be reversed.
In addition to starting a separate fire at the WFA Madison headquarters, the attacker(s) threw a molotov cocktail into the building, the Washington Times reports.
“Arson investigators are working with fire department officials to determine an exact cause,” Madison police said in their report.
“A molotov cocktail, which did not ignite, was thrown inside the building. It also appears a separate fire was started in response.”
“Madison Police Department understands members of our community are feeling deep emotions due to the recent news involving the United States Supreme Court,” Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes stated.
The building was empty at the time of the attack, and no injuries were reported, but the attacker(s) spray-painted the message: “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” on one of its walls, MSN reports.
The White House released a statement Monday in which it said President Joe Biden “strongly condemns” the attack.
