On Wednesday, March 10, 1993, Dr. David Gunn exited his car during a protest outside the clinic where he practiced medicine in Pensacola, Florida. Before Dr. Gunn, a victim of polio who walked with a severe limp, could reach safety, a man cried, "Don't kill any more babies!" and shot him three times in the back. When the police arrived, Michael Griffin, a thirty-one year old "pro-life" protester wearing a gray suit, admitted he had just shot the doctor with a .38 caliber snub-nosed revolver. The forty-seven year old Dr. Gunn died shortly thereafter during emergency surgery at a local hospital.
