    He said, ‘Who said life starts at 40?’
    He was forever haunted by his disinclination to visit his father, arrested for labor activism and later killed by the Gestapo.
    A higher court reversed one jury acquittal, which led to a ten-month prison sentence.
    While his landmark Supreme Court victory (January 28, 1988) was based on the inalienable right of a woman to choose, some provincial governments and anti-choice lobbyists viewed it only as a theoretical right.
    Only when his mother died did he truly believe she loved him.
    He established a link between unwanted children (particularly males) and violent criminal behavior.
    In particular, he noted the frequent abuse Hitler suffered at the hands of his father.
    He established a link between abortion and a lower crime rate.
