Wyoming Abortion Clinic Set Fire!
According to court documents, Lorna Roxanne Green has told investigators that she decided to burn the clinic because she was having nightmares and experiencing anxiety over the Wellspring Health Access clinic.
She set the Wyoming abortion clinic on May 25, 2022. She broke a window in the clinic and filled aluminum baking pans with gasoline, and set it on fire.
The clinic was not able to accept patients until March this year because of the damage brought by the fire. The clinic had drawn protestors who are against abortion and was scheduled to open a few weeks later after it was established.
The Wyoming abortion clinic is the only clinic that offers surgical abortions in at least a decade. The clinic also provides gender-affirming health care, family planning, and women’s health care, and offers abortion pills.

The police released surveillance video at the Wyoming abortion clinic at the Casper facility after the fire. A masked woman in a hooded shirt was captured by the surveillance camera. She was not arrested until witnesses named Green as the possible suspect.
If convicted, she will be facing up to 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.
Although lawmakers have passed a bill banning abortion except in cases of reported incest or rape, or when the mother’s life is in danger, abortion remains legal in Wyoming. On the other hand, while an opposing lawsuit proceeded, a state judge banned the hold.
