Wisconsin man pleads guilty to firebombing Madison pro-life clinic

A man has pleaded guilty to the 2022 firebombing of a Wisconsin pro-life organization.

The event took place just days after the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last year, according to a report by Breitbart News.

Madison resident Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 30 has agreed to plead guilty to the attack on the Wisconsin Family Action by signing a Nov. 20 plea deal.

The admitted bomber signed the agreement in exchange for a promise that he will not receive the maximum punishment of 20 years behind bars, and a judge will review the plea deal on Dec. 1.

The Attack

Roychowdhury carried out the attack on the early morning of May 8, 2022, according to local law enforcement. Upon arrival, law enforcement discovered the charred remains of two mason jars, one of which had been singed but had not caught fire.

A huge "A" and the number "1312," a disparaging acronym that numerically stands for "ACAB" (All Cops are Bastards), were spray-painted on the building's exterior.

The Department of Justice identified Roychowdhury as a suspect in March of 2023, and police were able to recover food disposed of in a public trash can by the then-suspect and to recover DNA from the items.

The DNA recovered matched what was found on the jars that exploded at the pro-life center, putting Roychowdhury at the center of the investigation, leading to his eventual arrest the same month at Boston Logan International Airport where he was apprehended as he was about to fly to Guatemala City.

Officials say he was charged with one count of trying to cause damage with fire or an explosive, which carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum of twenty.

More Attacks

The firebombing was one of a number of attacks against pro-life organizations and churches following the release of the Supreme Court's pivotal abortion ruling.

Since the verdict was leaked, 88 pro-life organizations and pregnancy clinics, as well as 214 Catholic churches have been attacked, according to statistics compiled by CatholicVote.

The DOJ continues to go after pro-life activists on FACE Act charges, but Roychowdhury is one of the few pro-abortion zealots who has been detained.

“Roychowdhury’s crime was not the only incident that Wisconsin Family Action endured, either,” LifeSite reported. "Following the attack, the group received a series of angry and threatening voicemails from pro-abortion radicals, including ‘Burn, little Jesus freaks’ and other death wishes, a declaration that the arsonist was a ‘true American patriot,’ obscenities, general expressions of contempt, and a suggestion that pro-abortion violence was some sort of logical progression from abortion activists unsuccessfully trying for years to deal with this nonviolently.”
