Pro-lifer John Salvi kills two in attacks on two abortion clinics

Two receptionists were shot dead and five others injured when 22-year-old pro-life activist John Salvi, dressed in black, started firing at two nearby abortion clinics in Boston. It’s believed that he targeted the clinics because they were testing a new abortion pill.

The possibly schizophrenic Salvi was arrested several days later when he started shooting at another clinic.

His paradoxical pro-life stance ended in contradiction after he was put in prison.
