Pro-Life Group Attacked By Molotov Cocktail, Headquarters Set Ablaze | 9 May 2022 | Protesters attacked a pro-life group’s headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, on Sunday, according to a police announcement, throwing a Molotov cocktail at the building. The demonstrators targeted the pro-life non-profit Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), The New York Times reported. Graffiti was found on the building that read, "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either." A Molotov cocktail was also thrown into the building, but did not ignite, according to police.
