DEAR DR. SPENCER begins with a selection of letters from thousands of women pleading for his help. They come from students, housewives, husbands and boyfriends, and they reveal with painful clarity the desperation their writers felt. The program includes interviews from those who remember Dr. Spencer, including Ashland residents (his wife, his lawyer, and many of his friends); women who traveled in search of his safe care; and a juror who served at one of his trials and helped to acquit him, even though she opposes abortion.
