Antiabortion Activists Taken into Custody in Virginia

Two antiabortion activists, Rae Powell and Carol McAdoo, were taken into custody Wednesday after refusing to answer some questions of a federal grand jury investigating abortion clinic violence. At least one of these questions related to the Army of God manual. Federal officials have called the Army of God a terrorist group and describe its manual as a handbook on crimes against abortion clinics and workers.

Powell and McAdoo were among four Virginia residents alleged to be involved in abortion protests who were subpoenaed to appear before the panel in Newport News. The other two apparently answered questions and were not detained
