It wasn’t even one week from when the Supreme Court’s draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked. But yesterday – on Mother’s Day – a radical group targeted Wisconsin Family Action with a firebomb (Molotov cocktail) because of their pro-life stance. While the firebomb did not ignite, the group still managed to set Wisconsin Family Action’s building on fire and vandalized it with graffiti.

This was more than an attack on Wisconsin Family Action. It was an attack on democracy, motherhood, and even the rule of law. And most of all, it was an attack on the value, dignity, and worth of each and every life in Wisconsin.
Even as Wisconsin Family Action sorts through the rubble, they are continuing to stand strong for life. In the words of their President Julaine Appling: “…this attack fails to frighten us, and instead steels the resolve of law-abiding, common-sense, every-day folks to stand up and push back. We know today it is Wisconsin Family Action getting Molotov cocktails tossed through broken windows and fires ignited, but tomorrow it could be anyone…”
