California professor charged for allegedly shoving anti-abortion protester
(Reuters) – A pregnant California professor will face charges for allegedly shoving a 16-year-old anti-abortion protestor and stealing another picketer’s sign during a campus demonstration earlier this month, a prosecutor said on Friday. Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor who teaches feminist studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara, faces misdemeanor charges of theft, battery and vandalism, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley said in a statement. The video posted by the group begins with a written statement saying that a group was carrying signs showing “images of abortion victims” and distributing pamphlets to provoke a dialogue among students. She’s a professor.” In response, Miller-Young turned around and said, “I may be a thief, but you’re a terrorist.” When the protesters attempt to enter an elevator with Miller-Young, the group claims the professor shoved a protester several times and scratched her.
