The New England Journal of Medicine has beefed up office security now that Randall Terry, a leader of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, has called one of its articles "Nazi-like" and compared it to "chemical warfare on children." The new study, published in the Journal Wednesday, says that doctors can quickly and safely induce abortions by using a combination of two other drugs to produce the effect of the controversial French abortion pill RU-486. Although 66 violent incidents occurred at U.S. abortion clinics this year, Terry, who delivered his diatribe by fax, shrugged off suggestions his comments could be incendiary. But TIME's David Van Biema cautions: "The threat probably won't come from Terry himself, but from fringe elements who could well interpret these unhelpful Nazi metaphors as an invitation to drastic measures."
