Abstract

Dr. Garson Romalis, a Vancouver physician who performed abortions, was shot and severely wounded by an unknown assailant 3 years ago. In this article he tells Anne Mullens about the incident and its aftermath. The shooting, which has since been linked with the attempted murder of 2 other abortion providers, has not changed Romalis' views on the importance of the procedure. Today his major concern is that young physicians will be too frightened to provide an essential and legal service. He is working to convince medical students of the need to continue providing abortions.
