Feds Charge Ex-Con in Wisconsin Abortion Clinic Bombing
Grady reportedly has a long history of run-ins with the law. He was charged on March 30 with resisting or obstructing a police officer, and in August 2011 was sentenced to two months in jail and a year on probation after committing an apparently similar offense, Talking Points Memo reports. Last decade, he was repeatedly accused of skipping out on his bail, and in 2004, he was sentenced to a year and a half in prison and 3 1/2 years of supervised release for manufacturing or distributing cocaine.
His alleged attack on the Wisconsin Planned Parenthood is the second abortion clinic bombing this year. On Jan. 1, a Pensacola, Fla., clinic that has been a target of anti-abortion violence for nearly 30 years was leveled by a bomb for the second time in its history.
This week’s attack came amid a heated national debate over women’s health care issues, revolving around insurance coverage for birth control and a spate of proposals pushed by state lawmakers to make obtaining an abortion more onerous.
