FBI Probes Pro-Lifers

NEW YORK () -- Attorney General Janet Reno asked the federal investigators to find out whether anti-abortion militants are conspiring to commit violence at abortion clinics, The New York Times reported Thursday.

All 56 FBI field offices received a confidential teletype Saturday, the day after a doctor and a volunteer escort were shot to death outside a Pensacola, Florida, clinic, the newspaper said.

Several well-known anti-abortion activists were listed in the teletype, the Times reported. It said they had all signed the "justifiable homicide" declaration that supports killing doctors who perform abortions.
