Planned Parenthood Bombing Suspect: ‘I Lit Up The Clinic’

A man accused in the weekend bombing of a Planned Parenthood office in Wisconsin reportedly admitted “I lit up the clinic” after his arrest.

During his first appearance today in federal court, Francis Grady, 50, also asked if the federal judge overseeing his case knew “how many babies were being killed” at the clinic, according to a report from WLUK, the Fox affiliate in Green Bay.

Grady reportedly offered to plead guilty on the spot, but the judge scheduled a second hearing for April 19.

Grady was charged with two felonies related to the Sunday night bombing of the clinic in the town of Grand Chute. No one was hurt and the bomb only did a small amount of damage to the building.
