Veteran reproductive-rights crusader BILL BAIRD tells his amazing story. At great personal cost, he helped establish a woman's legal right, not only to abortion, but to purchase contraceptives.
He survived assassination attempts, 8 criminal convictions, prison brutality, the firebombing of his abortion clinic (the nation's first), the breakup of his family, and the absence of any help from NOW, ACLU, & other potential allies. One of his 3 Supreme Court cases was cited 6 times in Roe v. Wade.
Excerpted from a panel discussion at the University of Hartford, February 16, 2010.
