Former Binghamton resident Randall Terry visited the city briefly for a protest against recently-enacted state abortion rights legislation.

Terry became known nationally after he founded the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue more than three decades ago.

Terry launched a statewide tour after Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act into law. The abortion rights measure had been debated for years but only passed after Democrats took control of the state Senate.

At each stop, Terry and a few others perform a graphic skit that he hopes will "put the fear of God in other state governors and legislatures who are going to be tempted to follow New York's lead in this."

During the performance, Terry is outfitted as the Devil while another actor portrays Cuomo.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program Wednesday, Terry insisted Cuomo is running for president. Terry expects the governor will allow other Democratic candidates to "burn themselves out" before he enters the race for the party's nomination.

Terry plans to conclude his tour of the state Sunday with performances of the skit outside St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan.
