So a genuinely evil man has been stalking pro-life figures on the Web, threatening their lives, and reveling in the prospect of their assassinations, including in the comboxes over at FIRST THINGS.
Fortunately for us, there are laws against such things:
Theodore Shulman, a pro-choice activist who in 2010 threatened to kill several pro-life leaders, has been sentenced to 41 months in federal prison.
Shulman, 51, pleaded guilty in May to one count of transmitting a threat to injure another person. The targeted victims named in the case are Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Princeton University’s Robert George. …
Shulman, a self-described “pro-choice terrorist” is the son of feminist activist Alix Kates Shulman. His mother wrote the 1972 sex-novel Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen and has stated that each of her four abortions were deliberate – “not one was the result of carelessness.”
Shulman liked to style himself as the “first pro-choice terrorist” and even had a blog called “Operation Counterstrike.” His mission statement was: “Right-to-lifism is murder, and ALL right-to-lifers are bloody-handed accessories. Swear it, believe it, proclaim it, and act on it.”
His targets included many pro-life leaders including LifeSiteNews bloggers Jill Stanek and Dr. Gerard Nadal.
Shulman is one sick puppy. But imagine growing up with a woman who publicly boasted of her four abortions. At what point do you begin asking yourself, “How close was I to winding up in a dumpster in the back of some clinic?” How can life be seen as anything but a weird accident, and ultimately meaningless?
I eagerly await pervasive MSM coverage of this conviction.
I will pack a lunch.
