WASHINGTON, D.C., March 3, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – New information has come to light that Theodore Shulman, a self-described “pro-choice terrorist” who was arrested last week by federal agents in a possible connection to death threats against pro-life leaders, has four siblings that were aborted by his mother, a feminist authoress and political activist.
Theodore Shulman's mother, feminist activist Alix Kates Shulman, has said that she had four deliberate abortions. AOL’s Politics Daily reports that Shulman, 49, charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in a case under seal, 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.”
Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek says that Theodore has spoken of his aborted siblings, saying his mother aborted two unborn children before his birth, and then aborted two more afterward.
According to Politics Daily, 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 Stanek; Robert P. George, Princeton philosopher; Priests for Life founder, Fr. Frank Pavone; Bryan Kemper of Stand True Ministries; pro-life scientist Gerard Nadal, and others.
Politics Daily reports that Stanek had compiled 4,000 comments over four years that Shulman had posted on Stanek’s blog, including this one: “I’m looking forward to watching a documentary entitled ‘The Assassination of Jill Stanek.’”
Theodore Shulman, 49, has frequently harassed Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger, recently threatening in a voice mail that Sullenger should “convert” to pro-choice “during the few months you have left on this earth,” or else “you will go to hell and burn.”
Upon the death of pro-life leader Dr. Bernard Nathanson, Shulman wrote, “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.”
Shulman is charged with communicating interstate threats against two pro-lifers and is currently being held without bond at Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City, a Federal holding facility.
Although the complaint against Shulman was filed under seal, Operation Rescue says they have been informed that the case involved two pro-life activists who are simply referred to as Victim 1 and Victim 2 in order to protect their safety.
Shulman is also the object of a Federal investigation in Wichita, Kansas, which could result in additional charges being filed against him for making serious death threats against Operation Rescue staff members.
