Judge Orders Abortion Opponent |To Remove Threats From The Web

PHILADELPHIA - A federal judge ordered anti-abortion activist John Dunkle to remove postings on his Web site that threaten a clinic worker by exhorting readers to shoot her in the head. U.S. District Judge Thomas Golden granted an injunction, which prosecutors requested in August, that also bans Dunkle from publishing similar messages with the names, addresses or photographs of other workers of the Philadelphia Women's Center. The worker who was threatened, a clinician, said she stopped providing reproductive health services because she feared death.
