Oklahoma Abortion Clinic Bombed

The Reproductive Services Clinic was bombed on January 1, 1997 and again on January 19th. The abortion clinic, which offers a variety of family planning services, sustained minor damage and was closed for an afternoon after a bomb went off at the back of the clinic. No one was injured, and police do not yet have any suspects. A woman, identified only as Terry, who has worked at the clinic for fourteen years was outraged and commented, "Certain groups would consider this a victory, but what it is is an outright attack on women's rights."

This bombing came three days after an Atlanta abortion clinic was bombed twice and a month after an abortion doctor in New Orleans was stabbed fifteen times around the neck, chest and shoulders by an anti-abortion extremist.
