Arrow Deliver Them From Evil

The Alta View Hospital hostage incident began the night of September 20, 1991 when Richard Worthington, armed with a shotgun, a handgun and sticks of dynamite arrived at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, UT in an attempt to kill Dr. Glade Curtis who had performed a tubal ligation on his wife...

After planting the dynamite outside, Worthington entered the Hospital's Women's Center and took 2 nurses (Woolley & Wyler), a patient, Christan Downey, who was giving birth to her first child, her sister Carre, the baby's father Adam, and 2 newborn babies hostage (Caitlin, the daughter of Christan and Adam, was born during the siege). Dr. Curtis saw what was happening and hid in his office, where he called the police. When the police arrived nurse Karla Roth attempted to wrestle Worthington's shotgun from his hands. She was successful, but did not know he had 2 guns.. As she ran away, Worthington shot her in the back with the other gun. Roth died several hours later from the wound..Worthington held the hostages for 18 hours.. He was talked into surrendering and releasing the remaining hostages by Sergeant Don Bell and Detective Jill Candland of the Salt Lake City police department who were assisted by a hostage inside, a nurse named Susan Woolley. After an arrangement was made for his surrender, it started to fall apart due to miscommunication. Marjorie Wyler reached out and placed her hand on his hand holding the gun and told him this had to end. Worthington was worn out and gave up without a fight as she then took the gun from him, allowing everyone to walk out without any further injuries. Worthington was sentenced to 35 years in prison for the murder of Karla Roth, he apparently committed suicide in his prison cell on November 11, 1993..Tubal ligation or tubectomy (also known as having one's "tubes tied" (ligation)) is a surgical procedure for sterilization in which a woman's fallopian tubes are clamped and blocked, or severed and sealed, either method of which prevents eggs from reaching the uterus for fertilization.. Tubal ligation is considered a permanent method of sterilization and birth control..The Egyptian Ebers Papyrus from 1550 BCE and the Kahun Papyrus from 1850 BCE have within them some of the earliest documented descriptions of birth control: the use of honey, acacia leaves and lint to be placed in the vagina to block sperm.. It is believed that in Ancient Greece silphium was used as birth control which,
due to its Effectiveness and thus desirability, was harvested into Extinction... are slum kids.. Everybody talks like that..THEY DO NOT! At the feedstore do I say, "Oh, now Wally, give me a bag of that F-in' pig feed, and a pound of that bitchly cow corn"? At the bank do I say, now give me some of your Christ-ing money!" THERE, LOOK THERE, NOW SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!..
