Headquarters FIREBOMBED – Photos Show What Happened
(TheRedWire.com) – Pro-choice activists and Democrats have vowed to push back against the idea of the Supreme Court reversing Roe v. Wade in the wake of the public release of a draft decision written by Justice Samuel Alito. On Mother’s Day, numerous protesting activists disturbed church services. On the same day, someone attacked a pro-life facility in Wisconsin with a Molotov cocktail.
Investigators say the Madison headquarters of the Wisconsin Family Action fell victim to arson around 6 a.m. on May 8. Police said the attackers threw a Molotov cocktail through a shattered window, but it didn’t go off. Investigators believe someone then set the fire in the building after the homemade firebomb didn’t ignite. Fire crews put the flames out quickly, and books and furniture took the brunt of the damage.
A picture posted on Twitter showed vandalism spray-painted on a wall, saying, “if abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”

Police don’t know who was behind the attack on the pro-life group’s facility.

On May 10, freelance journalist Robert Evans posted a tweet claiming he received a statement from a group calling itself “Jane’s Revenge,” claiming responsibility for the incident. The name is an apparent reference to Jane Collective, a radical pro-choice group that operated in Chicago area prior to Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion.
The statement was sent to me through an anonymous intermediary I trust. It is hosted on a Tor site (link to follow). The statement is titled "first communique" and opens with the words, "This is not a declaration of war".https://t.co/5ZhcDHiA7A pic.twitter.com/9Y0d03mXoq
