Randall Terry, ultraconservative publicity hound and founder of Operation Rescue, is absolutely devoid of compassion. Convinced that "personhood" begins with a single microscopic zygote, he and other anti-choice activists would force rape victims (including young girls who are sexually assaulted by an adult male relative) to carry their fetus to term.
According to the gospel of Terry and his radical Christian posse; your wives, sisters, daughters and mothers whose health is threatened by unexpected pregnancies should be compelled to play Russian roulette with their wombs, possibly their lives. It is Operation Rescue's considered opinion that females are superfluous - except as vessels for a man's seed. If your loved one suffers and dies while giving birth due to a medical condition... well, God's Will Be Done sayeth Terry and similar-minded religious fanatics.
You've no doubt seen videos in which Terry and his deranged minions drag around bloody fetus dolls and baby coffins, or rejoice over the cold-blooded murder of women's health care providers. Recently, he's hatched another scheme for spreading his unnatural brand of misogyny. Since television networks are not allowed to reject the commercials of political aspirants, Terry is producing faux candidates from whole cloth in order to bring those blood-spattered fetuses into your living room. Kevin Kileen reports for CBS St Louis: A Highland, Illinois mother of 13 known for her protests outside a Granite City abortion clinic announces she’s running for Congress as a Democrat on the abortion issue. Retired obstetrics nurse Angela Michael says she wants to air more than 250 commercials in the St. Louis television market featuring images of aborted fetuses... Meanwhile, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis — Paula Gianino — says Michael has a reputation as an extremist. "This is a woman who video tapes the faces and cars of patients that go to facilities that provide abortion care, and she puts them up on her website," Gianino said. Gianino says Michael also has a reputation for "yelling and screaming" outside of abortion clinics... (Husband Dan Michael bragged to KMOX: "We have pictures of patients on our website. It’s not a violation of privacy. It’s public record. It’s like if somebody’s going into a grocery store. If they don’t want to get their picture taken, then they shouldn’t get an abortion.") Her decision to run was announced on the steps of the Old Court House in downtown St. Louis, flanked by "pro-life" presidential candidate Randall Terry...
Like the fictitious Dr. Frankenstein, Randall Terry creates his political grotesqueries from spare parts and lifeless appendages, spawned by morbid ideology. His influence isn't waning. If voters don't denounce the anti-choice movement's infectious insanity, right-wing monsters will eventually dictate the reproductive decisions of every woman in America.
