An abortion rights advocate will go to federal prison for 41-months for threatening to kill two pro-life advocates.
Theodore Shulman was sentenced in Manhattan federal court on Wednesday.
In January 2010, Shulman threatened to injure two pro-life advocates via a message on "SecondHandSmoke," a blog written by Wesley J. Smith that appears on the website FirstThings.com, a site by an interreligious, nonpartisan research and education institute.
The FBI says the message stated, ""If Roeder is acquitted, someone will respond by killing [Victim-1] of [the university] and [Victim-2] of Priests for Life."
Roeder refers to Scott Roeder, who was convicted in 2010 for the murder of Dr. George Tiller, a doctor who provided abortion services.
The intended victims have been identified in various web postings as Rev. Frank Pavone, a Catholic priest who leads Priests For Life, and Professor Robert George of Princeton University.
Shulman was in possession of cyanide, castor beans, and rosary peas at the time of his arrest in February 2011.
In addition to his prison term, Shulman, 51, was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment fee.
Shulman pleaded guilty in May.
