Man Admits To Firebombing Pro-Life Clinic

  • A Wisconsin man, Hridindu Roychowdhury, pleaded guilty on Friday to firebombing the office of a prominent pro-life group last year.
  • Roychowdhury, 29, admitted to throwing two Molotov cocktails through the window of Wisconsin Family Action’s Madison office on May 8, 2022, less than a week after the leak of a draft opinion suggesting the U.S. Supreme Court’s intention to overturn its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.
  • One of the Molotov cocktails thrown into the office failed to ignite; the other set a bookcase on fire. Roychowdhury also admitted to spray-painting the message “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either” on the outside of the building. No one was in the office at the time.
