Fighting for Life

Gov. Robert P. Casey was about to hear a death sentence. The doctor's message was grim: A rare, incurable disease was at work in Casey's body. No cure. No treatment. Casey had just been reelected to the PA governorship by the biggest landslide in the state's history. An abortion-control case with Casey's name on it was about to land on the U.S. Supreme Court. And Casey was soon to be embroiled in a political fight that would result in his being snubbed, then embarrassed, at the Democratic Convention because of his outspoken criticism of abortion on demand. Then, when his death was imminent, his life was saved. The moving story of a man's repeated fight against extraordinary odds -- first for life itself & then for political justice & morality. Photos.
