Clinton Condemns Abortion Clinic Bombing

President Clinton denounced the bombing of a Birmingham, Alabama clinic in which a clinic security officer was killed and a nurse was seriously injured. “I strongly condemn the senseless violence that claimed the life of an off-duty police officer and injured others in Birmingham, Alabama... This bombing was an unforgivable act that strikes at the heart of the constitutional freedoms and individual liberties all Americans hold dear,” said Clinton.

The President recalled the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) that he passed into legislation, claiming that “We will continue to enforce that law to its fullest extent -- and to protect our nation’s family planning clinics.”

U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno has issued a statement confirming that the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms will be investigating the bombing.
