Man Who Burned Down Florida Clinic “Disliked Abortion”

Robin Marty

Sometimes it really is just that simple.

Police have arrested a suspect for the New Years Day fire that burned down a clinic in Florida that provided abortions, and his motive appears simple.

He doesn’t like abortion.

Via the Washington Post:

According to the affidavit, Roger’s [sic] told investigators he had an aversion to abortion and said he had recently witnessed an anti-abortion protest near the clinic that further prompted his actions.

“Rogers admitted to intentionally setting fire to the clinic due to his strong disbelief in abortion,” the affidavit stated, and “he stated (he) was further fueled when he recently witnessed a young female entering the clinic while he was sitting amongst anti-abortion protesters.”

Clinic protesters claim that they are simply there to inform women and show their abhorrence for abortion.  But even without actively inciting violence, they still serve as a catalyst.
