Eric Rudolph was responsible for four bombings in the Atlanta area, motivated by his personal anti-abortion and anti-gay agenda. He is most famous for bombing the 1996 Atlanta summer games, of which security guard Richard Jewell was wrongly suspected after the media began reporting its suspicions. Rudolph’s confession would ultimately clear Jewell’s name, but the damage was done.
On January 29, 1998, an explosion tore through an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama. Serial bomber Eric Rudolph later confessed to the crime, which killed two and critically injured one. Rudolph was also responsible for the Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta, as well as a series of other bombings across the United States, all in the name of his anti-gay, anti-abortion agenda.
