Abortion Clinic Firebombing

Florida: A homeless man made a crude fire bomb from gasoline, a 32-ounce beer bottle and a shirt to torch a Penscaola abortion clinic that has a history of being a target of violence, according to an arrest affidavit.

Bobby Joe Rogers, 41, said he was pushed to action after he saw a young woman enter the clinic for an abortion while he was standing outside the clinic with a group of protesters recently.

The clinic has been attacked before. It was bombed on Christmas Day in 1984, and in 1994 a doctor and a volunteer were shot to death. The gunman, Paul Hill, was executed in 2003.

American Family Planning has been the site of near-daily protests with anti-abortion activists carrying Bibles, crosses and signs.
