Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall announced on Monday that an explosive device had been detonated outside his office in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Marshall said that “no staff or personnel were injured by the explosion.”

“In the early hours of Saturday, February 24, an explosive device was detonated outside of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office building in Montgomery,” Marshall said. “Thankfully, no staff or personnel were injured by the explosion. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency will be leading the investigation, and we are urging anyone with information to contact them immediately.”

The announcement did not specify whether a motive has been determined or if there are any suspects.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency informed Breitbart News that special agents found the detonated explosive around 8:19 a.m. on Monday following a tip about a “suspicious package” near the intersection of Washington Avenue and South Bainbridge Street in Montgomery. The agents were able to confirm that the explosive device had been detonated in the early hours of Saturday morning, with no reported damage to nearby buildings.

The agency stated that no additional information is available at this time “as the investigation is ongoing.” When questioned about a potential connection between the incident and Marshall’s views on in vitro fertilization (IVF), Amanda Priest, spokesperson for Marshall’s office, advised CNN not to make assumptions about a specific issue. Just one day prior to the incident, Marshall announced that his office had no plans to use a recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling to prosecute families seeking IVF or IVF providers.

“[Marshall] has no intention of using the recent Alabama Supreme Court decision as a basis for prosecuting I.V.F. families or providers,” Katherine Robertson, the office’s chief counsel, said in a statement.

Following the ruling in February, the highest court of the state declared that frozen embryos are legally recognized as unborn children according to state law. Consequently, individuals who cause harm to these embryos may be subject to legal consequences under the state’s Wrongful Death of a Minor Act. This decision has sparked intricate debates surrounding both legal and ethical matters, prompting both Democrats and Republicans to hastily propose bills aimed at safeguarding in vitro fertilization (IVF) practices within the state. As a result of this ruling, it has been reported that three clinics in Alabama have temporarily suspended their IVF services.
