For years, opponents of abortion rights have complained to local, state, and federal law enforcement that Theodore “Ted” Shulman, a radical abortion-rights activist, was harrassing and threatening them. Nothing ever came of it until late February, when the anti-abortion rights blogosphere lit up with rumors that Shulman had finally been arrested….
Now Mother Jones can confirm that Shulman, the 49-year-old son of famed feminist author and activist Alix Kates Shulman, faces a 6-count federal indictment for allegedly threatening 2 unnamed anti-abortion activists. The charges, which each carry a maximum 5-year-sentence, could land Shulman in prison for decades if he’s convicted on all counts. Shulman pleaded not guilty.
