Randall Terry Removed By Police From Howard Dean Health Care Town Hall Meeting

Anti-Abortion Extremist Ejected After "Murder" Incitement

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last night in northern Virginia, Representative James Moran and Governor Howard Dean held a town hall meeting on health care that was attended by thousands of people. Anti-abortion extremist Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue, had announced prior to the event that he would be there to disrupt it by accusing President Obama of "killing Granny and babies." Velvet Revolution was there with cameras.

After a spirited defense of health care reform, which at least 75% of the crowd supported, Congressman Moran introduced Howard Dean. Immediately, Mr. Terry and a handful of his followers began screaming from the middle of the room, "We won't pay for murder" and "Howard Dean murders babies." The Congressman demanded civility but was ignored. He then told the crowd that Mr. Terry was there to disrupt the event and offered to allow him to ask a question, but Mr. Terry kept screaming. Finally, thousands of people surrounded the disrupters and began chanting, "Kick him out, kick him out." The police then escorted Mr. Terry and his band of disrupters out of the meeting and off the property.

Velvet Revolution captured the entire event on video and posted it on YouTube. ( It shows that Mr. Terry was not interested in a democratic debate of the issues but instead wanted to shut down debate and incite people to violence.

Operation Rescue has been inciting violence against women's health care professionals for years, and that incitement has been directly implicated in the death and maiming of many people, including the recent assassination of Dr. George Tiller by Scott Roeder, a self described follower of Randall Terry and Operation Rescue. VR vehemently condemns these attacks on the democratic process and urges vigilance to ensure debate without violence or incitement to violence.
