Cheryl Deann Sullenger (born 1955) is an American pro-life activist. Sullenger is currently the senior vice president for Kansas-based anti-abortion group Operation Rescue.

Anti-abortion activism[edit]

Sullenger started her involvement with the anti-abortion movement in 1984, volunteering for a crisis pregnancy center in San Diego County.[1]

Attempt to damage a clinic[edit]

Sullenger and her husband Randall were members of the Bible Missionary Fellowship, a fundamentalist church in Santee, California. On July 27, 1987, a member of that church attempted to bomb the Family Planning Associates abortion business. Sullenger provided a wig for co-conspirator Eric Everett Svelmoe, who planted the bomb. The gasoline bomb was placed at the premises but failed to detonate as the fuse was blown out by wind.[2]

Sullenger and her husband both pleaded guilty to conspiring to damage the Alvarado Medical Center abortion clinic.[2] Sullenger's husband was sentenced to 18 months and she was sentenced to three years by US District Judge Earl B. Gillam. Her sentence was scheduled to begin after her husband's ended so that one of them could stay at home with their daughters, then four and six-years-old.[2] Sullenger served two years in U.S. federal prison and was released in April 1990.[3]

Following completion of her sentence, Sullenger taught children at a Christian school for seven years. She was also elected to the Central Committee of the 75th District of the San Diego Republican Party.[1]

Wichita and Operation Rescue[edit]

In 2003 Sullenger moved to Wichita, Kansas where she began serving as a senior policy advisor for Operation Rescue under Troy Newman. With Newman she wrote the books Their Blood Cries Out! and Abortion Free. In 2003 she and Newman issued a statement on upon the execution ofPaul Jennings Hill, writing that because Hill was denied by a judge from mounting the defense of his choosing, he was denied due process. Because he was not allowed to defend himself, they thought his execution was unjust.[4] As a part of Operation Rescue, she pressured companies to cease doing business with abortion provider George Tiller. Sullenger also participated in protests outside the homes of clinic workers.[5]

False Link to Tiller assassination[edit]

In 2009 Sullenger was falsely accused of aiding Scott Roeder, the anti-abortion activist who assassinated Wichita physician George Tiller. Roederhad called her since she was the public contact for Operation Rescue and inquired about Tiller's court dates during Tiller's criminal prosecution, but he was one of dozens of people who called Sullenger for such information.[6][7] Rachel Maddow ran an expose filled with inaccuracies covering an alleged but completely non-existent "unholy alliance" between Sullenger and Roeder.[8]

Sullenger continues to work through peaceful, legal means to expose abortion abuses and gain prosecutions for abortionists who are breaking the law.
