Abortion Clinic Security Guard Killed in Australia
Steven Rogers, a security guard at the Fertility Control Clinic in Melbourne, Australia was shot in the face and killed by an unidentified gunman on Monday, July 16. Police have not determined if the shooting was related to anti-abortion protests. The clinic, Australia’s oldest private clinic to provide abortions, was the site of an anti-abortion protest that day. The anti-abortion activists had left the clinic only fifteen minutes before the murder. Police now have the gunman in custody, but he has refused to identify himself or enter a plea.
