Anti-Abortion Group Must Pay Doctor $8.6 Million in Damages
Three anti-abortion groups -- Operation Rescue, Missionaries to the Pre-Born, and the Dallas Pro-Life Action Network -- must pay a doctor $8.6 million in damages for harassing and trying to force him to stop performing abortions. A federal jury yester day ordered the payment to Dr. Tompkins who received harassment, abuse, stalking, telephone harassment and mail threats from the groups for over ten months. Eventually, Tompkins had to shut down his practice and move out of town.
