Wake-Up Call: The doctor is still in

Dr. Warren Hern just keeps making headlines -- whether he wants them or not. For decades, he's practiced behind bulletproof glass at his Boulder clinic, occasionally attracting the attention of publications ranging from Westword (you can read one of our profiles here) to the current edition of Esquire, whose "The Last Abortion Doctor" describes how, after the murder of Dr. George Tiller in May, Hern became the last physician in the country to perform late-term abortions.

That dedication has gotten Hern headlines, and also his own threats. As the Denver Post reports today, a seventy-year-old Spokane real estate broker has just been indicted on suspicion of making threats against Hern in June, only three weeks after Tiller was slain inside his Wichita church.

Those are headlines Hern could live without.
