New York City, N.Y., Oct 4, 2012 / 23:42 pm
A self-described "pro-choice terrorist" on Wednesday was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison for his 2010 internet death threats against pro-life leaders like Fr. Frank Pavone and Princeton University law professor Robert P. George.
Theodore Shulman, 51, was sentenced to 41 months in prison in Manhattan federal court. He will also face three years of supervised release, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.
"I have already publicly forgiven Mr. Shulman and pray for him every day," Fr. Pavone, the head of Priests for Life, said Oct. 4.
The priest renewed his previous joint statement with Bill Baird, a proponent of legal abortion, that Fr. Pavone said rejected "hatred and violence in word and deed between those on opposite sides of the abortion issue."
