Fighting For The Innocent

He has led the largest civil disobedience movement in American history, with over 70,000 arrests in the “rescue movement.”
On The Campaign
Mr Terry says:
“This campaign is about human rights, ladies and gentlemen. It will be first and foremost about the human rights of babies that are brutally slaughtered and thrown in dumpsters and landfills. But it is also about the human rights of the slave labor force on Obama’s plantation.”
Paying The Price
Mr. Terry is most certainly a man who believes strongly in the mission statement of the organization he founded. He truly is dedicated to do whatever it takes to end abortions in America, and in the process, he has been arrested nearly 50 times, and has been incarcerated for over one year of his life (accumulated jail and prison time.)

He was sued by various abortion groups, had to file bankruptcy, and ended up losing everything he owned
