Summary
On October 23, 1998, Buffalo abortion provider Barnett Slepian was killed by a sniper's bullet fired through the kitchen window of his home. Days later, police informed another local doctor, Shalom Press, that they had received a threat warning that he was "next on the list." Within hours the Press household was under federal marshal protection. America's violent struggle over abortion--which had already claimed the lives of five doctors and clinic workers--had come to Buffalo. Press's son combines a retelling of his family's experience with firsthand accounts of protesters arrested outside his father's office, patients who braved the gauntlet of demonstrators, and politicians who attempted to appease both sides. Here we see, as never before, the people behind the absolute convictions that have divided our nation for the past three decades.--From publisher description
