Anti-Abortion Extremist Arrested

Anti-Abortion leader Matthew Trewhella was arrested last week and charged with assault and obstructing police. Trewhella and others were demonstrating at Indiana high schools showing photos claiming to be aborted fetuses when parents complained to local authorities. Trewhella leads the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Missionaries to the Preborn, an extremist group that has undertaken violent tactics outside abortion clinics, and has called for the formation of militias in the past. Trewhella was released from custody after posting $100 bond.
