(Newser) – Theatrical antiabortion protester Randall Terry was escorted from a town hall last night as he hammered Howard Dean for "baby-killing," Salon reports. Terry has been protesting outside town halls, but last night, he came indoors as the former DNC chair and Rep. Jim Moran met with constituents in Virginia. Things were “rowdy and ugly” from the start, writes Alex Koppelman.

Moran noted that there were people at the meeting who weren’t from his district and were there just to interrupt. He said those people should leave and singled out Terry, who was shouting that Dean was a “baby killer.” Moran decided to allow Terry to ask the first question if he’d stop protesting. Terry opted not to and was removed from the meeting with the crowd chanting “kick him out,” Politico notes.
