The Madison, Wisconsin, headquarters of a Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life organization, has been vandalized with Molotov cocktails.
Madison Police Department Chief Shon Barnes said in a statement that the department is working on the arson investigation with federal officials and the Madison Fire Department.
“It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted,” he said in the statement.
Barnes said the police department will provide an update on the case at 2 p.m. Monday.
On Twitter Sunday, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers condemned the apparent arson.
“We condemn violence and hatred in all forms, including the actions at Wisconsin Family Action in Madison last night,” Evers wrote. “We reject violence against any person for disagreeing with another’s view … We will work against overturning Roe and attacks on reproductive rights by leading with empathy and compassion. We will defend what we believe in with our words and our voices — in the streets, in halls of government, and at the ballot box. In Wisconsin, we must lead by example.”
“It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted,” Barnes said in a statement.
“Due to the suspicious nature of this fire, our arson investigators responded,” Madison police spokeswoman Stephanie Fryer said. “They are actively working this case at this time.”
