The White House condemned the arson as pro-abortion groups announced more demonstrations throughout the week.
Wisconsin Family Action is a non-profit organization that opposes abortion in Madison, Wisconsin. A fire was reported at its offices early Sunday morning and is being investigated as arson.
Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes said a molotov cocktail that failed to fully ignite was found at the scene. The building’s exterior was also vandalized, reading “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Governor Tony Evers (D) tweeted that he condemns “violence and hatred in all forms, including the actions at Wisconsin Family Action in Madison last night.”
The White House also issued a statement condemning the attack.
“President Biden strongly condemns this attack and political violence of any stripe. The President has made clear throughout his time in public life that Americans have the fundamental right to express themselves under the Constitution, whatever their point of view,” a White House official told The Hill.
Multiple churches were also the site of demonstrations over the weekend. Several report being vandalized and videos have appeared on social media of pro-abortion activists forcibly entering churches to disrupt Mass.
“Criminals sharing abortion-rights sentiments targeted a church in Boulder Tuesday night, smashing windows and spray painting Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder. The Catholic church, and the Archdiocese in Denver, said the vandalism to the property will cost thousands of dollars to repair,” Denver’s CBS4 reports.
