Pro-Abortion Terrorist Arrested by FBI

February 26th, 2011

He’s finally been arrested, but apparently Theodore Shulman harassed and threatened the lives of pro-lifers over the course of four years

…a lot of pro-lifers:

From Jill Stanek’s blog:

Shulman has threatened pro-life activists around the country, including Bryan Kemper, Gerard Nadal, Troy Newman, Fr. Frank Pavone, Lila Rose, Ken Scott, Cheryl Sullenger, Robert George, and me, among others.

His blog is still live. He observed the death of Dr. Bernard Nathanson this way:

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who produced the right-to-lifist propaganda flick SILENT SCREAM, is dead.

Unfortunately, he died in his bed. He was not killed by a pro-choice counterterrorist. Too bad, he would have been a most effective target.

Today I was only able to find a total of eight articles on this by running his name (without quotes) through Google News. I wonder how many stories would be on the internet if it had been an anti-abortion terrorist…

    This is both hilarious and alarming at the same time. Should we go done the long list of the harm, damage and deaths caused by the anti-abortion terrorist?

    March 10, 1993: Dr. David Gunn of Pensacola, Florida was fatally shot during a protest. He had been the subject of wanted-style posters distributed by Operation Rescue in the summer of 1992. Michael F. Griffin was found guilty of Dr. Gunn’s murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

    July 29, 1994: Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort, were both shot to death outside another facility in Pensacola. Rev. Paul Jennings Hill was charged with the killings. Hill received a death sentence and was executed on September 3, 2003.

    December 30, 1994: Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi was arrested and confessed to the killings. He died in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.

    January 29, 1998: Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.

    October 23, 1998: Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death at his home in Amherst, New York. His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers in Canada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Dr. Slepian’s murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.

    May 31, 2009: Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed by Scott Roeder as Tiller served as an usher at church in Wichita, Kansas.

    Arson, bombing and property damage:

    December 25, 1984: An abortion clinic and two physicians’ offices in Pensacola, Florida were bombed in the early morning of Christmas Day by a quartet of young people (Matt Goldsby, Jimmy Simmons, Kathy Simmons, Kaye Wiggins) who later called the bombings “a gift to Jesus on his birthday.”

    May 21, 1998: Three people were injured when acid was poured at the entrances of five abortion clinics in Miami, Florida.

    October 1999: Martin Uphoff set fire to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, causing US$100 worth of damage. He was later sentenced to 60 months in prison.

    May 28, 2000: An arson at a clinic in Concord, New Hampshire resulted in several thousand dollars’ worth of damage. The case remains unsolved. This was the second arson at the clinic.

    September 30, 2000: John Earl, a Catholic priest, drove his car into the Northern Illinois Health Clinic after learning that the FDA had approved the drug RU-486. He pulled out an ax before being forced to the ground by the owner of the building who fired two warning shots from a shotgun.

    June 11, 2001: An unsolved bombing at a clinic in Tacoma, Washington destroyed a wall, resulting in US$6000 in damages.

    July 4, 2005: A clinic Palm Beach, Florida was the target of an arson. The case remains open.

    December 12, 2005: Patricia Hughes and Jeremy Dunahoe threw a Molotov cocktail at a clinic in Shreveport, Louisiana. The device missed the building and no damage was caused. In August 2006, Hughes was sentenced to six years in prison, and Dunahoe to one year. Hughes claimed the bomb was a “memorial lamp” for an abortion she had had there.

    September 13, 2006 David McMenemy of Rochester Hills, Michigan crashed his car into the Edgerton Women’s Care Center in Davenport, Iowa. He then doused the lobby in gasoline and then started a fire. McMenemy committed these acts in the belief that the center was performing abortions, however Edgerton is not an abortion clinic.

    April 25, 2007: A package left at a women’s health clinic in Austin, Texas contained an explosive device capable of inflicting serious injury or death. A bomb squad detonated the device after evacuating the building. Paul Ross Evans (who had a criminal record for armed robbery and theft) was found guilty of the crime.

    May 9, 2007: An unidentified person deliberately set fire to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

    December 6, 2007: Chad Altman and Sergio Baca were arrested for the arson of Dr. Curtis Boyd’s clinic in Albuquerque. Altman’s girlfriend had scheduled an appointment for an abortion at the clinic.

    January 22, 2009 Matthew L. Derosia, 32, who was reported to have had a history of mental illness rammed a SUV into the front entrance of a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota.

    Seriously? You think there’s anything about this that qualifies as “hilarious”?

    I can’t even imagine any pro-lifer ever saying anything like that about an anti-abortion terrorist.

    From what I remember, whenever any of the things you’ve listed has happened the blogosphere has been ablaze with unequivocal condemnations from both pro and anti-abortion folks. Do a Google blog search on “Theodore Shulman” and see how few hits you even get. (and most of the ones I checked were by pro-life bloggers…)

    Bob Barnes:

    So your logic is that two wrongs make a right? In other words, one person’s or group’s bad behavior excuses another person’s or group’s bad behavior?

    @Bob Barnes

    But Bob, this guy — he terrorized people by (gasp) writing about them on his BLOG! AFTER they were DEAD already! Clearly he is the be all end all of evil compared to the actual, you know, MURDERS carried out by “pro-life” people.

    No, my logic is don’t point your finger when your side has so many more abuses attributed to you.

    Leland, your side holds the monopoly on abuse and harm…. don’t point your finger until your own messes are cleaned up.

    You are SO right Emma! Writing nasty things about someone if FAR worse than gunning them down in their own church! The horror!

    And Leland, that is why Bob wrote that it is both alarming and hilarious – that you get your panties in a bind over the arrest of someone who wrote nasty things, JUST because he is pro-choice but somehow feel the stuff done by the anti-choice people is OK.

    First of all, I certainly do not identify myself as being on the same “side” as the criminals that you listed — whatever motives they may have claimed.

    Second, the idea that you expressed here is a popular one, but I see it as simply a convenient way to dodge valid criticisms. The fact is that no person or movement is perfect, and therefore your argument could be used in an attempt to shut down any kind of criticism, from any source.
