anti-abortion legal warrior threatens women's clinic

Saw this item on Above the Law... In Texas, 27-year-old law school graduate Erlyndon Joseph Lo is facing federal charges for threatening to use deadly force to prevent an abortion at a women's clinic: Plano man is arrested after threatening women's clinic.

On Friday morning, Lo went to the Plano federal courthouse and filed a court document saying that at noon that day, he was planning to go to the Southwestern Women's Surgery Center in Dallas and "use deadly force to defend the innocent life of another human being," according to court documents.

Lo's filing specifically sought a restraining order against law enforcement, asking that officers not be allowed to harm him if he had to harm someone else. Uh, what? Isn't this guy supposed to be a law school graduate? Obviously, the FBI was notified, and Lo was arrested.

Lo faces two charges: using interstate commerce to communicate a threat to injure, and threatening force to intimidate and interfere with clients and employees of a reproductive health service in order to intimidate that facility's clients and employees from obtaining and providing reproductive health services. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.

But wait, there's more. Last month, Lo sued the U.S. Supreme court seeking to outlaw abortion. The suit he filed at the Plano clerk's office was hand written. In it, he said he was acting as his own lawyer. Something is wrong with this guy. More on his craziness here: SMU Law Grad Morphs Into Anti-Abortion Warrior.
