BREAKING: Far-Left Extremist Sentenced To 7.5 Years In Prison For Fire-Bombing Of Wisconsin Pro-Life Office

A far-left extremist who participated in a bombing of a Wisconsin pro-life office in 2022 was sentenced to 7.5 years in federal prison earlier this week.

The incident took place in 2022 shortly after a draft opinion of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade was leaked to the press. The offices of Wisconsin Family Action became one of several pro-life locations and churches to be targeted by fire-bombings and other attacks by groups such as “Jane’s Revenge.”

Hindu Sankar Roychowdhury, a PhD holder, was arrested in 2023 on charges of attempting to cause damage by means of fire or an explosive in connection with the Wisconsin incident.

In addition to carrying out the attack, Roychowdhury wrote “if abortions aren’t safe, you aren’t either” on the walls of the property.

The far-left group Jane’s Revenge — which was implicated in a number of fire-bombing attacks in the wake of the Roe V. Wade decision — claimed responsibility for the Madison attack. The group released a statement at the time calling for for “the disbanding of all anti-choice groups, fake clinics, and violent anti-choice groups within the next thirty days,” according to local outlet WISC-TV.

Roychowdhury was identified as a suspect nearly a year after the attack thanks to DNA evidence recovered from the scene. Investigators also matched his handwriting to that of the threatening message found at the property. After initially pleading not guilty, the far-left extremist ultimately accepted a plea agreement in exchange for a lesser sentence.

Wisconsin Family Action President Emeritus Julaine Appling emphasized the seriousness of the crime following the sentence, stating that the incident was a “very visual reminder that people who disagree with us can and will use violence to try to silence us.”
