Rob Schenck on the Consequences of Inflammatory Rhetoric

Clip: 08/16/2019 | 19m 41s | Video has closed captioning.

At one point, Rev. Rob Schenck was a prominent figure in the anti-abortion movement. He was willing to say and do almost anything in his zeal to shut down abortion clinics - that is, until his rhetoric helped motivate the murder of Dr. Barnett Slepian, an OB/GYN in Buffalo, NY who performed abortions. He joins the program to discuss the unintended violent consequences of his words.
