Anti-Abortion Activist Plans Salina Campaign Stop

Posted 3 years ago

By Post Staff

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 1 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

    Too bad his mother didn’t exercise her rights to an abortion. Go home jerk, we don’t need you causing more trouble here.

    Amen Joe…..another fanatical fruit loop…..Kansas doesn’t need anymore help from this group….

  • NO NO NO!

    Great! Another MORON making Kansans look like a bunch of backward thinking, ignorant, self-righteous, pretentious, A**HOLES!

    Mr. Randall, Not everyone who lives in the great state of Kansas, shares your RIDICULOUS beliefs. Don’t use Kansas to spread your hate rallies. We have MUCH bigger problems going on right now, than ABORTION and/or GAY MARRIAGE!

    RON PAUL! Our only hope!

    It’s encouraging to me to see so many comments against this visitor. I hope that everyone is prepared to serve as advocates for all women in Kansas as the abortion ban is discussed in upcoming weeks! I would hate to see a woman’s choice taken away in Kansas.
