Theodore Shulman, the man who sent death threats to me and several other pro-life leaders, has entered a guilty plea in Federal Court to an incident involving threats to Father Frank Pavone and Princeton Professor Robert George. He faces up to 51 months in prison. According to the New York Daily news:
The plea deal includes an agreement that prosecutors would not charge Shulman for possession of cyanide and two other deadly substances at the time of his arrest.
Read the rest here.
The cyanide and other deadly substances are worrisome, especially since Shulman has evidently had graduate training in either medicine or biology. He is a highly intelligent man who represented the proaborts very, very well when not engaging in threats. Of course, his obsession with promoting abortion led him to explain away the scientific literature that showed the link between abortion and breast cancer. His intelligence and talents as a scientist have been tragically squandered in the service of the greatest evil to grip this nation since slavery.
Shulman’s mother is the celebrated feminist author, Alix Kates Shulman who authored Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen, a feminist manifesto. Shulman’s mother aborted four of his siblings. Two before him and two after him. That’s a terrible family legacy to grow up within.
In what I have read by his mother, she mentions his sister but not Theodore.
There is no celebration or joy in my home today. A relatively short sentence for a man who has sent threats to many and who has been found in possession of three deadly substances is a disquieting reality. Equally disquieting is the thought that this brilliant man has destroyed himself, gripped as he has been by a terrible evil; perhaps too, by the emptiness wrought by four missing siblings.
Theodore needs our prayers, and plenty of them. Absent a solid spiritual and ethical formation, the power of our medical and scientific technology will twist, distort, and destroy those entrusted with it’s secrets and protocols. Shulman is living proof.
If tonight many of us are breathing a little easier, I feel nothing but emptiness and sorrow for a fellow scientist my age, whose mother butchered four of his siblings. I can’t imagine such a horrific absence of love, such cold and callous evil and how that factors into a human being’s development.
Pray for Theodore, for his mother, for their conversion and healing. It’s all so very, very sad.
