Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry plans presidential run, return to Kansas

January 13, 2012


— An abortion opponent who made headlines in Kansas 20 years ago returns to the state this month to open a campaign office for a presidential run.

Randall Terry was one of the leaders of the 1991 "Summer of Mercy" abortion protests in Wichita, where authorities made more than 2,700 arrests over several weeks.

Terry is using his presidential run to draw attention to his anti-abortion agenda. He plans a campaign swing Monday in Illinois followed by stops in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Minnesota and Idaho.

He'll meet with Kansas anti-abortion leaders Jan. 21 in Wichita. He also has news conferences and meetings scheduled in Topeka and Salina.

"He'll meet with Kansas anti-abortion leaders Jan. 21 in Wichita."

Someone should alert the FBI's anti-terrorism task squad.

Like moths to a flame, the idiots are flocking to Kansas as the wing-nuts take over what was once a moderate, educated, intelligent Kansas.

What a joke. Does anyone take him seriously at all?

Here's a joke I saw once: "The Randall Terry Virus: When your computer fails it's software, your only options are Retry and Cancel. Abort isn't an option."

He should be in jail for child endangerment after what he pulled in Wichita, having kids wrap themselves around car tires.

So, your main platform is running against women's rights?

Got anything else? Our country needs lots of jobs fast. What do you have for that?

Hopefully, this means Vermin Supreme will make a stop in town to sprinkle more pixie dust on this fool.

Shannon Dea, co-president of Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region, responded to a call by a Canadian member of parliament to have a debate on the humanity of the unborn child, saying: “Medical science is irrelevant to the question of when a fetus becomes a human being — that matter is a legal and philosophical one, not a medical one.” And deeming babies being mangled, dismembered, poisoned, and beheaded to be human, or possibly human, would cut down Planned Parenthood’s abortion mill profits. End of discussion, according to criminal, racist Planned Parenthood.
