    Code: 1643

    Portrays religious terrorism in Pensacola, Florida, which has become the epicenter of the national debate over abortion, including a 1984 clinic bombing, the 1993 murder of a clinic physician, and the 1994 murder of another clinic physician and his escort. The video combines "found" video shot by clinic escorts, which portrays the escalation of violence by anti-abortion protesters at a clinic before the shootings, with interviews with a diverse group of civic and religious leaders who discuss the religious fervor and violence which has characterized this conservative community, as well as their own convictions and responsibilities surrounding these controversial issues.

    Directed by Janet Goldwater and Barbara Attie
