MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, Dec. 21 /CNW/ — 14 arrested outside Rudy Giuliani’s headquarters in Manchester. Among them were dedicated anti-Abortion leaders, Randall Terry (founder of Operation Rescue), Joan Andrews-Bell (who has served multiple years in prison and is the Author of “You Reject Them, You Reject Me.”) and her son Emiliano (whom suffers from “frozen joint disease” and was adopted after being rescued from a dumpster after being born with no legs.)

11 anti-abortion protestors led by Randall Terry were arrested on Tuesday for blocking the entrance to Guiliani’s headquarters and charged for criminal trespassing. On Wednesday other activists followed suit: Joan Andrews-Bell , son Emiliano and Willy Lewis. Randall’s group was finally released around 10pm that same day, but he was inexplicably transferred and detained over night and finally released Thursday around 2pm.

Joan Andrews-Bell , Emiliano and Willy Lewis plead “nolo condendere” (which neither admits nor disputes a charge). They were fined $240 each, which they refused to pay. They were then sentenced to 5 days in jail at the Hillsborough County Jail in Manchester. Their decision is the outgrowth of their uncompromising commitment to be in solidarity with the victims of abortion, and to expose the pro-death position of Rudy Giuliani.

“These Manchester sit-ins are the beginning of a series of events that will take place in several states and escalate through Super Tuesday. Our plan is that February 5th will be the funeral of Rudy’s treacherous presidential bid,” said Randall Terry.
