Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

The intersecting lives of John Salvi, a 22-year-old anti-abortionist charged with murder in the armed attacks on two Massachusetts health clinics, and his victims Leanne Nichols and Shannon Lowney, clinic receptionists. This program traces the moral terrain these three Catholics traveled, particularly over the issue that obsessed Salvi and ultimately fueled his alleged attack.
