In 2005, Eric Robert Rudolph pleaded guilty to numerous federal and state homicide charges in connection with a series of bombings across the southern United States between 1996 and 1998, killing two people and injuring at least 150 others in the name of an anti-abortion and anti-gay agenda. Included in his attacks was a Jan. 29, 1998, bombing at a Birmingham, Ala., abortion clinic that killed police officer and part-time clinic security guard Robert Sanderson, and critically injured nurse Emily Lyons.
