A Planned Parenthood clinic in McKinney, TX–just north of Dallas–caught fire last night when someone threw a Molotov cocktail at the building. Reports Pegasus News:
Holly Morgan, director of media relations and communications for Planned Parenthood in Dallas, said their McKinney health center located on Eldorado Parkway was “attacked” between 10 and 11 p.m. Tuesday with an incendiary device.
The person or persons involved in the attack threw a Molotov cocktail, consisting of diesel fuel in a glass bottle with a lit rag, at the building. Morgan said the device did not penetrate the front of the clinic but did cause some serious damage.
I wish I could say “unfuckingbelievable,” except, well, not. Violence and threats directed by “pro-life” people at Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers are pretty standard. I concede that it remains to be seen whether this attack was directed specifically at Planned Parenthood–the mini fire-bomb landed on their doorstep, though they’re in a larger retail center.
Thank goodness no one was hurt, and that Planned Parenthood was able to reopen this morning.
