TRENDING: Actresses call out Romney on abortion in new ad (Moron.Org)
CNN ^ | October 15, 2012

Posted on 10/15/2012 9:20:12 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Hollywood actresses Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington are featured condemning Republicans for their stance on abortion in a new political ad from the liberal group MoveOn.org.

The spot, released Monday and directed by noted filmmaker Rob Reiner, will air nationally and in the battleground states of Colorado and Virginia, the group said, adding it would air during shows primarily viewed by women.

"I want to talk to you about women," Johansson says at the beginning of the spot, followed by Washington saying, "And about Mitt Romney."

"Mitt Romney is for ending funding to Planned Parenthood," Longoria says, with Johansson chiming in, "Including cancer screenings."

The ad continues:

Washington: "He said he'd overturn Roe v. Wade."

Johansson: "We have Republicans trying to redefine rape."

Longoria: "Trying to force women to undergo invasive ultrasounds."

Johansson: "If you think that this election won't affect you and your life, think again."

Washington: "Vote."

Longoria: "Vote."

Johansson: "Vote for Barack Obama."

In a statement, Reiner said Romney, and his running mate Paul Ryan, would "eviscerate women's rights" if they're elected in November.

"We'd be talking about getting rid of abortion, birth control, access to health care screenings. As a husband, son and father, I can't stand by and let this happen," Reiner continued....

We'd be talking about getting rid of abortion, birth control, access to health care screenings.

These liberal dummies actually think that Romney is going to get rid of birth control and deny access to heathcare screenings. Even with respect to abortion, the worst that would happen if Roe is overturned is that it goes back to each state to decide the policy. Complete idiots.

These women who have likely all had multiple abortions are now advocating the killing of more babies.

If they made a commercial promoting killing four year old children with chainsaws, no TV station would run the ad and the ladies would be tossed in jail.

Therefore, no TV station should run this ad and these women should be locked up for promoting the killing of children.

I am pretty sure that the outright embrace of Abortion and Planned Parenthood WILL NOT help them in the election.

All polls show more than half the population is against abortion on demand and they are very much against tax payer funding for abortion.

I’ve bodyguarded Eva Longoria in the past, so of course I’ve been two to three feet away from her for hours at a time. I see better looking Latinas all day long at my neighborhood Wal-Mart. She’s nothing special, whatsoever. The others I’ve never seen in person.

How about Four DAY old babies or Four hour old babies. That is more like what is happening. Particularly with the infanticide president who believes that new born babies that survived abortions should be left to die.

He is scum and i pray that there is justice in this World or in the next!

None of their statements are true, yet it doesn’t matter.
(Except maybe the de-funding of PP)
What this really means is that for liberals the only thing that is important is anal sex and unlimited free abortions.

What’s sad is that these dingbats are supporting Obama, when the Islamists that Obama has aligned himself with would have these women whipped publicly for even being in the same room with a non-relative male when they do their acting.

And a woman’s charge of rape would only be legally considered if she had 5 males who witnessed the rape - never mind that if 5 males were there to witness the rape and didn’t stop it they are either weak scum or the ones doing the raping.

As to forcing somebody to bear a child - these people would not only force a woman to bear a child but would force her to marry someone without her consent, with mandatory suicide or an “honor killing” if she refused.

If women are stupid enough to fall for this crap then they probably deserve what they will get. And Meathead will deserve to have to watch it happen.

The rest of us don’t deserve it though, and that’s what sucks about my freedom being dependent on somebody else having a clue.

Longoria: “Trying to force women to undergo invasive ultrasounds.”

Yeah, because having an ultrasound is so much more invasive than having a fetus sucked out of your womb.

These people are ridiculous, and they sure feel threatened by women doing an ultrasound before going through with the abortion.

A woman's "Right to Choose" is done when her knees are separated. If that's the Choice, then you can live with the consequences and not force others to pay to bail out your irresponsibility.

OR, if ANY abortion is performed, DNA samples of the baby are mandatory, and the FATHER will be identified and Legally Responsible for ALL costs associated with his and her act; NOT THE TAXPAYER (they should require ALL births to un-wed mothers to be DNA-tested, and the fathers identified, also, and made to pay the support. AGAIN, taxpayers have NO RESPONSIBILITY to fund a Fluke-lifestyle).

When I used to argue with liberals (I don’t speak to them anymore) I’d always point out that republicans were president for 22 years and democrats for 16 years after Roe V Wade. Abortion is still legal.

Ultrasounds are invasive and abortion is not an invasive procedure? These women are the worst of the female form. No they do not want an ultasound they just want to destroy their offspring. Abortion is an evil that defies the biological imperative of survival.

Does any man actually want to touch a woman who has such a hatred of life? Yuck! That is some bad mojo.

Here’s the situation as I see it.

America has a LOT of problems right now, most of them liberal-caused.

They can’t all be solved at once.

The list will have to be prioritized, and one of the theories of prioritization is to assign tasks by importance by labeling them “A, B, or C”, and work the “A” items first, once completed, the B items will become A,s, etc. following this method we’ll probably never even get to the C’s.

Compared with the catastrophies facing us, abortion - although important - is probably an “H”.

Romney is going to be very busy for the fist four years just patching the holes in the titanic america, so polishing the brass bell will be far below the radar.

To democrats, social issues are all “A’s”, and there is nothing else that matters much to them. Budgets are only in place to support their social agenda.

This is why Obama and his lib rip base continue to rail about abortion.

Obama said, paraphrasing, if you can’t win on the big things, make the election about little things...like, Big Bird.

Taxpayer funding of abortion, and contraception, is morally and economically wrong.

We need Romney to focus on the A-list.

These vacuous women personify the term Sex Object. Big boobs, no brains.

Washington: "He said he'd overturn Roe v. Wade."
He can't "overturn" it, even if he wanted to.

Johansson: "We have Republicans trying to redefine rape."
Democommies make redefinition an art: liberal, gay, teabag, marriage.... to name a few.

Longoria: "Trying to force women to undergo invasive ultrasounds."
LOL... "invasive" ultrasounds? Please explain. Even transvaginals aren't invasive.... not nearly so much so, as say, sticking a tube in your uterus and vaccuuming.

"Cancer screenings?"

. Always look for the weasel word. "Screening" can mean lots of things, maybe questions and/or breast exam. What PP does not do, but wants people to think that they do, is mammograms. They refer women to someone else for that.
