Wisconsin pro-life office set on fire in Molotov cocktail attack

Police have yet to identify or arrest any suspects after the headquarters of a Wisconsin pro-life organization was set on fire Sunday and rejected the notion that the fire was an "inside job" perpetrated by the organization itself.


The office of the pro-life group Wisconsin Family Action, located in Madison, Wisconsin, was vandalized with graffiti and had Molotov cocktails thrown through a broken window.

The vandalism follows the publication of an initial draft opinion in the Supreme Court case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, where a majority of justices expressed support for the idea that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, “must be overruled.”

According to an incident report published by the Madison Police Department, “Flames were seen coming from the facility shortly after 6 a.m.” The Madison Fire Department quickly extinguished the fire, and arson investigators are working to “determine an exact cause.”

“A molotov cocktail, which did not ignite, was thrown inside the building. It also appears a separate fire was started in response. Graffiti was also found at the scene. No injuries have been reported,” the report added.
