Breaking: WI Man Arrested for Plotting to Kill Abortion Doctor
Just coming across the wires from Madison, Wisconsin: Feds: Wis. man planned to kill abortion doctor.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Marshfield man who planned to kill abortion providers in Madison this week was thwarted on the eve of the intended attack when his gun accidentally fired in a motel room, leading to his arrest for reckless endangerment, according to a federal complaint filed Thursday.
Ralph Lang, 63, confessed his intentions to investigators, saying his goal was “to lay out abortionists because they are killing babies,” the complaint said. He was charged with attempting to injure or intimidate a person who provides reproductive health services. He was scheduled for an initial appearance Friday. …
Lang had a history of targeting Planned Parenthood buildings. Court documents said he was arrested in 2007 outside a Madison branch, telling officers that everyone in the building deserved to be executed and that police were failing in their jobs by not carrying out the executions.
He told authorities he bought the .38 caliber gun about two years after his arrest “to help end abortion.”
