Prolife activist Randall Terry announces presidential candidacy

Political firebrand Randall Terry has announced that he is running for president as an independent.

Terry, 65, announced his candidacy on Thursday at events in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. He cited two reasons for why he is running:

  • To show millions of Americans the grisly truth about abortion. Terry’s presidential ads show graphic images of aborted babies.
  • To call on Roman Catholics, evangelicals and black Americans who voted for Biden in 2020 to repent and not vote for him in 2024, in the hope of causing Biden to lose key swing states

Terry’s running mate is Stephen Broden, a Black pro-life leader and pastor, “I’ve never seen a community so exploited and bamboozled by slick advertising as the black community,” he said. “If you are black and you vote for Biden, you’re an accessory to black genocide and the murder of innocent babies.

“President Joe Biden and the Democrats have proven they are baby killers,” he said. “We will expose their slaughter of babies and call on Christians to refuse to vote for them. Human life is precious; ending the slaughter of babies is America’s No. 1 ethical and political battle.”

The campaign is producing more than 20 graphic pro-life ads. “These ads are designed to challenge viewers to confront the reality of abortion and inspire them not to vote for Biden the Baby Killer or any Democrat,” according to a campaign news release.

Terry founded the anti-abortion organization Operation Rescue. Beginning in 1987, the group became particularly prominent for blockading the entrances to abortion clinics; Terry led the group until 1991. He has been arrested more than 40 times, including for violating a no-trespass order from the University of Notre Dame to protest against a visit by President Barack Obama

In 2003, Terry founded the Society for Truth and Justice and conducted a program that he called Operation Witness. In 1998, he ran for Congress in upstate New York, and in 2006, he ran for a seat in the Florida State Senate, losing both times in the Republican primary.

He previously ran for president as a Democrat against Barack Obama in 2012 in which he was prevented from airing a graphic commercial during the Super Bowl. He appeared on the ballots in Oklahoma, Alaska Missouri and New Hampshire. He won 18% of the Democrat primary vote in Oklahoma.
