Fire at Planned Parenthood Facility Determined to Be Arson

PicMonkey Collage - Planned ParenthoodA Planned Parenthood facility in Washington state caught on fire today, and authorities determined the cause to be arson.

The Pullman Fire Department and Inland Northwest Joint Terrorism Task Force made the call after inspecting the fire, which reportedly started at 3:30 am PST. The fire was put out hours later.

No one was injured, but the facility is expected to close down for a few weeks at the lest.

A local Planned Parenthood CEO said in a statement, “This is an appalling act of violence towards Planned Parenthood, but unfortunately a predictable ripple effect from the false and incendiary attacks that fuel violence from extremists.”

Planned Parenthood has come under intense criticism recently after a series of videos came out in which PP officials talk about harvesting fetal tissue.
