Nutball Anti-Choicer Launches Anti-Health Care Crusade

Randall Terry, an anti-abortion advocate, started his five-day, five-state tour to oppose Democrat-led health-care reform, according to The Roanoke Times. Terry is the founder of Operation Rescue, and in the 1980's and 90's Terry was one of the most outspoken opponents of abortion. 

In his skit, Terry and other anti-choice opponents staged a scene where Terry stabbed a plastic baby doll with a knife and then proceeded to pretend to give a lethal injection to an elderly woman. 

The article said he went as far as delivering a dead fetus to Bill Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in 1992.  

More recently, he was arrested in March at the Notre Dame graduation ceremony, where President Obama was the commencement speaker. After the murder of Dr. George Tiller, Terry said "He reaped what he sowed."
