What was in doubt was how the jury would react to the defense’s attempts to portray the killer as somehow less culpable because of his fevered opposition to abortion and his outrage that abortion rights are constitutionally protected in this country ( The New York Times on the Jury in the abortion murder trial)
Whew! The Times was aghast that on the jury there was not one vegan, or an environmentalist, or a performance artist , or anybody who attended an ivy league school or at least Syracuse. They were doubly nervous when the jury sent out for Dunkin Donuts instead of Starbucks! But the jury got it right, a midwest jury at that!
