A Wisconsin-based pro-life group was targeted on Mother’s Day by someone who reportedly threw a Molotov cocktail into their capitol city office and set the office on fire – which in turn prompted a reporter to wish death on anti-abortion advocates.
Outside of the building that housed the non-profit, the aggressors graffitied the wall in cursive with, “if abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”
The attack was presumably in response to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that, if approved in its current form, would overturn the 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and unleash the oversight of abortion laws back to the states.
Videos and photos circulating online show the Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) office in disarray with multiple boarded-up windows, crumbling drywall, a flipped-over chair, and ashes on the ground. According to WISC-TV, a fire was started in the building just after 6 a.m.

As of Sunday evening, no group had identified itself as responsible for the damage, but that didn’t stop a pro-baby-aborting reporter to celebrate the threat and violence, and encouraging “more of this.”
“More of this,” wrote Caroline Reilly, who is a reporter for Rewire News Group. “may these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground.”

She sounds like such a lovely person.
Reilly is a self-proclaimed “reproductive justice advocate” who has published articles for Bitch Media, Teen Vogue, and The Washington Post.
WFA President Julaine Appling told reporters that she thought the protestors were out of bounds.
“We get veiled and not so veiled threats from time to time,” she said. “We’ve never had anything that materialized like this.”
“We can all disagree,” Appling said. “People disagree with me all the time. I don’t go threaten them.”

The Madison Chief of Police issued a statement condemning the violence on Sunday and is scheduled to hold a press conference at 2 p.m. on Monday with more details of the attack.
“The Madison Police Department understands members of our community are feeling deep emotions due to the recent news involving the United States Supreme Court,” said police chief Shon Barnes in a statement. “Early Sunday morning, our team began investigating a suspicious fire inside an office building on the city’s north side. It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted.”
“Our department has and continues to support people being able to speak freely and openly about their beliefs,” he noted. “But we feel that any acts of violence, including the destruction of property, do not aid in any cause. We have made our federal partners aware of this incident and are working with them and the Madison Fire Department as we investigate this arson.”
Trying to make sense of the senseless violence, several people commented about the incident.
So they want to kill people to protect their ability to kill people. Seems legit. But when we hit back we’re radical terrorists.

You ever notice the folks that call for violence are never willing to do the dirty work themselves? These folks are really cowards and are hoping some useful idiot will ruin their own lives, so they can run the world from their ivory towers.

Across the country, other pro-abortion groups were planning “mostly peaceful protests” for Mother’s Day, too.
One radical abortion advocacy group called Ruth Sent Us threatened to burn the Holy Communion in response to the potential 180-degree turn on Roe v. Wade.
“Stuff your rosaries and your weaponized prayer,” the group replied. “We will remain outraged after this weekend, so keep praying. We’ll be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries.”
