MADISON (WKOW) — Local leaders and organizations are speaking out against violence after what Madison police believe was a targeted arson attack on an anti-abortion organization.

Governor Tony Evers condemned the attack, saying violence was “never the answer”.

“We reject violence against anyone who disagrees with another’s point of view,” Governor Evers tweeted.

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson also denounced the attack, calling it “heinous”.

Two local groups on either side of the anti-abortion debate also released statements.

Advocates for Planned Parenthood Wisconsin (PPAWI) have reaffirmed their values ​​of health and safety for their staff and patients, saying their work is “rooted in love.”

We condemn all forms of violence and hatred within our communities,” PPAWI tweeted.

Pro-Life Wisconsin wanted the safety of all pro-life advocates and those of Wisconsin Family Action. They also included a quote from Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, who called the attack “a manifestation of pro-abortion people’s anger and lack of tolerance towards those of us who are pro-life.” .
