FBI Arrests Pro-Abortion Terrorist

Posted by John Jansen (February 25, 2011 at 5:46 pm)

QuicktakeThe FBI arrested 49-year old Theodore Shulman yesterday in New York City on charges of communicating interstate threats against two as yet unnamed pro-life leaders. He is currently being held without bond at the city’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, a Federal holding facility.

Among the pro-lifers who have been the subject of Shulman’s threats is Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger, whom he repeatedly harassed by calling her cell phone “too many times to count.” What’s more, Sullenger reports, “He was always brazen in his threats and openly identified himself, telling us not to bother calling the FBI because they would never do anything for us.” [Continue reading ...]

Planned Parenthood Helps Pimp Cover Up Child Prostitution

ppnewjerseyUPDATE 2/3/11: Join the special webcast tonight with Lila Rose and other pro-life leaders at 8:30 p.m. EST (7:30 p.m. CST, 5:30 PST). Help expose and defund Planned Parenthood here!


Just this morning, Lila Rose and Live Action released their latest undercover video, filmed at Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey. This is definitely their most shocking video so far.

The footage shows a Planned Parenthood clinic manager coaching a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers how to obtain STD testing, contraception, and abortions for their underage prostitutes, and make everything “look as legit as possible.” [Continue reading ...]

Don’t Law Enforcement Officers Have Anything Better to Do?

Police cars outside Albany Medical Surgical Center abortion facility in Chicago

Perhaps the pro-life victories on election day have frustrated the abortion clinic folks, or maybe it was just on their calendar to call the police on us today. In any event, that’s what they did.

I was standing in the alley behind the Albany abortion mill in Chicago this morning in the same spot I always occupy, near the clinic parking lot entrance. The clinic administrator had arrived in her enormous SUV and made her usual comment about not blocking the entrance.

At that point I was alone, and, although I like to think I’m pretty competent, I really don’t think I could single-handedly block an entire alley or parking lot entrance—certainly not both at once!

Shortly after her arrival, my colleague Andrew arrived. Now there were two of us—still not a big enough contingent to form a blockade. We gave literature about abortion alternatives to several groups of clinic clients, all of whom came successfully through the alley, stopped and accepted our literature, then drove on in to the parking lot.

Police Called on Law-Abiding Pro-Lifers

About an hour into our vigil at the clinic a Chicago Police SUV pulled into the alley. [Continue reading ...]

On May 20, the Pro-Life Action League coordinated more than 150 pro-life activists from across Iowa and the Midwest in protesting an appearance by Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards in Cedar Rapids. The event was billed as a 30th anniversary celebration for Planned Parenthood of East Central Iowa—and we were there to deliver the message that abortion is nothing to celebrate.

The protest was a tremendous success, with great turnout and fantastic media coverage. The entire event was a testament to what pro-life activists can accomplish with careful planning and a healthy dose of divine grace.

A “Welcoming Committee” for Cecile Richards

I first learned about Cecile Richards’ scheduled appearance—and the protest being planned by Dubuque County Right to Life—from a post by Jill Stanek on her pro-life blog. Given my history with Richards, I was eager to take part, so I reached out to my colleague Steve Brody, executive director of Dubuque Country Right to Life, who graciously accepted my offer to help “welcome” Richards to Iowa.
