Activist Vows Graphic Anti-Abortion Ads During Super Bowl 

File Photo. Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Veteran anti-abortion activist Randall Terry says he's mounting a Democratic primary challenge to President Obama in 2012, in part to be able to run graphic TV ads showing aborted fetuses during next year's Super Bowl.

Terry, who founded Operation Rescue, unveiled a campaign website this week, including three prototype 30-second videos he wants to air during the 2012 NFL championship game and throughout the Democratic primary next year. The videos, narrated by Terry, show bloody and dismembered fetuses following abortions.

He plans to formally announce his candidacy Thursday in front of the Holocaust Museum in Washington.

"I want to pummel Obama. I despise this presidency. He is the arch child killer of the Western Hemisphere, so I'm going to go head to head with him," Terry said in a phone interview.

"My ultimate goal is to make child-killing illegal again. And for child-killing to be made illegal, there has to be a crisis of conscience; we have to show the victims like we show the Holocaust victims and say never again."

While TV networks occasionally reject ads based on controversial or graphic content, the Federal Communications Act requires broadcasters to provide legally qualified political candidates fair access to ad time and forbids them from censoring ads "in any way, or for any reason." Terry said he's confident he can raise the $2.5 million for a Super Bowl spot and that CBS would broadcast it.
