FBI investigates arson at Buffalo anti-abortion clinic

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said on Nov. 14 it was offering up to $25,000 to help identify suspects who threw Molotov cocktails at an anti-abortion clinic in Buffalo, New York, in June. Surveillance footage released by the FBI shows unidentified people setting fires and breaking windows at a CompassCare Pregnancy Services center in Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo. The incident occurred on June 7, about two weeks before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, ending protections for abortion rights at the federal level. CompassCare’s website says it offers medical advice and guidance to people considering abortion and lists “Abortion Pill Reversal” as one of its services. According to the FBI, the fire caused “considerable damage”. One person also spray-painted “Jane was here” on the building, the FBI said. A day after the fire, CompassCare issued a statement blaming the arson attack on a political group called ‘Jane’s Revenge’. “Abortion terrorists broke glass and bombed CompassCare’s pro-life medical office in Buffalo,” CompassCare wrote. “The signature graffiti message left by the criminals reads ‘Jane Was Here’, in reference to the terrorist organization Jane’s Revenge,” the company said.
