Randall Terry Plans His Gruesome Ad Campaign

Well, you can’t say he isn’t determined. Randall Terry, the former leader of Operation Rescue, an anti-choice group known for harassing and terrorizing doctors and women seeking abortions, says he has followed through on his plan to get graphic, anti-abortion television ads on the airwaves under the guise of running for president.

Terry, who says he is challenging President Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination in Iowa and New Hampshire, now announces he has his ads ready to launch in early voting states.  According to his press release, “The ad has multiple graphic images of babies murdered by abortion, and makes the argument that to vote for Obama knowing that Obama supports the murder of babies is a betrayal of the Catholic Faith. The ad will run on every TV station in Iowa and the five state regions that surrounds Iowa (Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, and Minnesota). The ad will run on at least one news broadcast per station.”

Terry is also targeting an ad buy during the Super Bowl, which he says will also run in local markets.

In the 2010 election, Terry mentored local congressional candidate Missy Smith in D.C., using the same FCC loophole to run graphic ads on television there as well.  Smith ended up losing dramatically, but Terry considered the campaign a success and vowed to emulate it in more states, as well as nationally.

Stephan certainly makes a point. Shielding one from the gruesome reality of present and past day evil does not make it go away. We can only hope if more were really aware of the atrocities committed daily on our planet that more action would be taken. Same can be said of the past: if we don't know about it, we can't learn from it.

Lyn M., no one wanted to see the slave ships either...though it took the likes of men such as William Wilberforce to expose and end the slave trade. Honestly, I do not want to see either...and doubt this man is a William Wilberforce. But the "yuck," you are exclaiming happens to 4,000 babies a day. Maybe we should consider ending the root of the pictures rather than attacking the one who shows them. Abortion is the root, not this man. Just a thought.

Imagine if the Jewish Holocaust aired in America when it was taking place...it would mess up your dinner, but I say...it should.

Barbara W., I do not believe in a deity, but "Choice for all" is not the main issue at hand, whether you believe in abortion or not. This is why no one is for "Choice" a year after the birth, although that baby is still dependent upon the mother to continue its life. The real question is whether or not it is innately wrong to take the life of the baby while it is still inside of the womb. That's the "issue at hand"...no matter what side of the line you fall on. "You will reap what you sow" is a quote from a deity's book, btw, the Christian one...Galatians 6:7. For future reference, I wouldn't quote a deity's book so proudly when you're goal is to undermine that "deity."

Cheers; the Irish refuse to legalize abortion and statistically hold the highest maternal safety rate. What if the "issue at hand" was maternal safety, I wonder where abortion would fall...

He's yet another argument for mandatory psych evaluations for all politicians!

I decided to read his platform-just to see. As a Catholic, this heretic, with his mean repressive viewpoint is not a Catholic and does not speak for me. He is the reason the Catholic church still performs exorcisms.

Running for the Democrat leadership? Shouldn't he be running for the Republican leadership? After all, he is a kook....
