Speaking in a raspy voice, Robert Lewis Dear yesterday appeared via a video hookup from the jail, where he has been held since surrendering after Friday's five-hour siege.
The clinic's parent organization, Planned Parenthood, has said witnesses believe the gunman was motivated by his opposition to abortion. But Dear has been described by acquaintances as a reclusive loner who did not seem to have strong political or social opinions.

Police have declined to speculate on a motive for the attack. A law enforcement official said Dear told authorities, "no more baby parts" during a rambling statement after being arrested.
Public defender Daniel King, who represented Colorado theater shooter James Holmes will act as Dear's attorney. The suspect is expected to be formally charged on December 9.
Dear, 57, is accused of fatally shooting a university police officer who responded to the attack, as well as an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two inside the clinic. Nine other people were wounded.
