PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two Molotov cocktails were thrown toward the Oregon Right to Life building after a window was broken in a failed attempt to break in, Keizer police said Monday.
The incident happened around 10:35 p.m. Sunday, officials said, and brought responses from Keizer detectives, fire crews and an arson investigator from Salem PD.
Oregon Right to Life officials said there was “minimal damage” to the building.
“Understandably, our team is shaken up by this attack. We are committed to taking proper precautions to protect the safety of our staff as we move forward,” said Oregon Right to Life executive director Lois Anderson. “We are thankful for the quick action of our first responders committed to maintaining a safe environment to operate in this community.
“Oregon Right to Life has had long-standing opposition to the use of force, intimidation, and violence by any person pursuing pro-life activities. Our commitment to the well-being of all human life requires that we respect the inherent value and dignity of all people. Just as we condemn abortion and euthanasia, we oppose private acts that take human life, inflict bodily harm, or destroy another’s property.”
