The man accused of bombing a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wisconsin said on Wednesday that he did it "because they're killing babies there."
Francis Grady, 50, spoke to reporters who were covering his first appearance in federal court since the Sunday night attack. The Green Bay Press-Gazette posted video of him walking through the courthouse followed by a short clip of him speaking to reporters outside.
"There was no bomb," Grady said. "It was gasoline."
A reporter asked why Grady attacked the clinic.
"Because they're killing babies there," he responded.
The newspaper also got more from inside the federal courtroom, where Grady reportedly interrupted the judge to ask, "“Do you even care at all about the 1,000 babies that died screaming?"
Grady was charged with two felonies in the attack. No one was hurt and there was only minor damage to the clinic.
