Abortion Bomb Plotter Pleads Guilty to Federal Charges

Justin Carl Moose pled guilty late last week to plotting to bomb a North Carolina abortion clinic. Moose was arrested in early September and charged with "providing information related to the making, use, or manufacture of an explosive," as stated in his plea agreement. He faces up to 20 years imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine.

The FBI press release in September states that Moose allegedly "utilized a social networking website as a platform to advocate violence against women's health care clinics - specifically locations where abortions are performed - and the health care professionals employed at these facilities." In reference to vicious attacks on abortion providers, Kathy Spillar, the Executive Vice President of the Feminist Majority Foundation commented, "we need to send a strong message that this is domestic terrorism, and it must be treated as seriously as international threats."
