3 September 2003 – Paul Jennings Hill

Paul Jennings Hill

Anti-abortion activity turned ugly when ex-minister Paul Jennings Hill shot two men.

In a haze of contradiction, pro-lifer Hill killed abortionist 69-year-old Dr John Bayard Britton and his bodyguard, retired Lt. Col. James Herman Barrett (74) on their way to their clinic, where they carried out terminations, in Pensacola.

Over the Hill

So what was Hill’s defence? That he had saved the lives of countless unborn babies, for which he believed he would be martyred for the pro-life cause.

Hill’s 2003 execution by lethal injection took place in Florida, with no sign of the hoped-for sainthood. He was 49.
