At least one band of abortion extremists seems to have carried out their threats of terrorizing pro-life activists over the weekend. The Madison offices of Wisconsin Family Action were targeted with pro-abortion vandalism and an arson attack. No one was in the office at the time of the attack and no one has claimed responsibility yet, though they made their motives very clear. Police are investigating the attack.
Abortion extremists resort to arson
The arson attack on Wisconsin Family Action was carried out with typical far-left efficiency, which means that multiple attempts were required.
A Molotov cocktail thrown through the window did not ignite, forcing the arsonists to break in and start a separate fire, though even this damage was not as extensive as they may have hoped.
The organization has not yet decided if the damage is bad enough to force them to relocate, though President Julaine Appling vowed that she will not be intimidated either way and the group will continue its work.
Some Democrats have disavowed the attack, but others have claimed that Wisconsin Family Action staged it and some have even justified the arson.
The group is one of the most prominent anti-abortion organizations in the state, and abortion extremists know it as one of their most determined opponents.
On the outside wall of the building the arsonists had written “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” in black paint, clearly indicating that there could be more attacks.
Justices face protesters at their homes
Other extremists chose to go directly to the source of the threat to abortion by protesting outside the homes of the conservative justices who oppose Roe v. Wade.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house was the site of one protest over the weekend, from which the crowd moved on to the home of Chief Justice John Roberts.
The intention was obviously to intimidate the justices, just as the Wisconsin attack was intended to intimidate pro-life activists.
President Biden and other prominent Democrats have officially condemned this harassment, but for many rank and file leftists it is a perfectly valid approach that requires no apologies.
In their twisted interpretation of the American political system, a justice feeling threatened and changing his vote to appease an angry mob is a victory for democracy.
The justices who courageously voted to overturn Roe v. Wade despite the threats and intimidation will undoubtedly face worse in the coming months, as will pro-life activists across the country.
