Amanda at Think Progress: Suspicious Fire Breaks out at Second Reproductive Clinic in Georgia.
Investigators are still trying to determine what caused a fire at an obstetrics and gynecology clinic — the second suspicious fire at a Georgia reproductive clinic this week. No one was injured in the Wednesday morning fire that started on the third floor of the Cobb County clinic, which anti-abortion advocates regularly protest, according to local news reports. Employees told a local TV station they saw "suspicious activity" before the fire:
Clinic workers believe the fire started on the third floor. They said two unknown men went upstairs and left shortly afterward, minutes before the fire was discovered.

"We have patients here. They're under anesthesia. This could have been life-threatening," employee Angela Buckner told Channel 2's Ross Cavitt.
On Sunday, a fire was reported at another clinic in Gwinnett County. In addition to the recent fires, women's health clinics reported break-ins and stolen computer equipment in March after the Georgia legislature approved a restrictive bill preventing abortions after 20 weeks.
Emphasis original.

Have I mentioned once or twice or three million times that this is fucking terrorism? Have I mentioned that maybe our president should say something about it?

It is. He should.
