Man Arrested In Florida Abortion Clinic Fire

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say the man charged with setting fire to a Florida abortion clinic long targeted by violence told investigators he was motivated by his hatred for abortion.

In an affidavit released late Thursday, prosecutors said 41-year-old Bobby Joe Rogers told investigators that he made a fire bomb and threw it at the clinic early Sunday.

Rogers said he was pushed to action after he saw a young woman enter the clinic for an abortion while he was standing outside the clinic with a group of protesters recently.
