Pro-Abortion Groups Renew $30 Million Campaign Against McCain, Sarah Palin
Life News ^ | 9/8/08 | Steven Ertelt

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Three pro-abortion groups are renewing their pledge to spend $30 million collectively bashing John McCain. The organizations upped their commitment to the attack ads and get-out-the-vote efforts with the addition of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to McCain's ticket.

NARAL, Planned Parenthood and Emily's List are the long-time heavy hitters of the pro-abortion movement and they each previously announced multi-million dollar campaigns targeting the presidential election.

They told The Hill newspaper on Friday that voters can expect to see the effort roll out over the last 60 days of the election season.

"This is the most anti-choice ticket in history of the Republican Party," NARAL Political Director Beth Shipp told the paper. "McCain put someone as outside the mainstream as you can on his ticket, which is Sarah Palin."

Shipp is concerned that Palin will draw the kind of voters -- independents, pro-abortion Republicans and women -- that they are working to persuade to vote for pro-abortion candidate Barack Obama.

NARAL's $10 million will reportedly target about three dozen Congressional districts where the organization thinks it can swing enough votes to Obama to make the difference in the election.

Planned Parenthood also told The Hill that Palin makes the differences between the tickets clear with respect to abortion.

"This selection may satisfy the right wing of the Republican Party, but it will further alienate mainstream women voters," it said.

Emily's List president Ellen Malcolm, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter during the Democratic primary, says Palin will be unable to win over disaffected Clinton backers who, she says, are gravitating towards Obama.

"With the most important decision of his candidacy, Senator McCain managed to appear politically expedient, reverse his advantage on experience, damage his potential for growth among independents and undecided voters, and turn off the women who supported Senator Hillary Clinton," she told The Hill.

Ellen's comments make it clear that pro-abortion women's groups like Emily's List are more concerned with abortion than with helping and promoting women.

"If Senator McCain thought that putting Governor Palin on the ticket would be a game changer, he may have been right, but not in the way he intended. Senator McCain has seriously misjudged women voters if he thinks he can win them over simply by putting a woman on the ticket," she said.

However, polls show that about 20 percent of Clinton backers will support McCain in the November election.

Ellen's comments make it clear that pro-abortion women's groups like Emily's List are more concerned with abortion than with helping and promoting women.

And what the rabid abortionists don't understand is that abortion IS NOT a major priority for the average liberal.

And if they keep saying a “baby like Trig should not have been born” they are shooting themselves in the head.

Plus when you use your PAC money to attack a woman with a child that has downs syndrome there is really no way to keep it from sounding like you’re cheering for eugenics. (which in fact it is probably what it is... but they really don’t want it to sound that way.)

From Wiki:

Ellen R. Malcolm has had a long career in American politics, particularly in political fundraising. She is an heiress of one of the founders of IBM. After graduating from Hollins College in 1969[1], she worked for Common Cause in the 1970s. She was a press secretary for National Women's Political Caucus and later Esther Peterson, special assistant for consumer affairs in the Carter administration. She went on to found EMILY's List, a left-wing organization which supports the election of pro-choice, female Democrats to public office, and was president of America Coming Together.

Malcolm was named one of America's most influential women by Vanity Fair (1998), one of the 100 Most Important Women in America by Ladies' Home Journal (1999), one of the Women of the Year by Glamour (1992), and Most Valuable Player by the American Association of Political Consultants

Wasn’t Planned Parenthood pleading poverty and screaming for more federal funds just recently?

Is this the same EMILY’s list whose membership could only muster a 55% disapproval for Sarah in an online poll?

America is pro-life! If the country wasn't, the GOP ticket would be going all the way downhill. And no - Planned Parenthood and NARAL are not really about "choice" for women!

In a couple months our Sarah might tell little Barack O-bla-bla something like: Barry your Moose is cooked, your Chickens have come home to roost, you have exceeded your pay-grade.

Sarah is more of a man than little Barack will ever be.

If you have $30 million lying around to spend, spend it consouling these kids about not having sex in the first place, and buy them good condoms in the second place.

abortion IS NOT a major priority for the average liberal.

They wish. Over time it has been verified empirically that a sincere prolifer, especially one who "walks the walk" like Sarah, brings a steady 5% bump over any prochoicer. The recent poll results on women at large says these repugnant baby-killing harpies are FOS. Furthermore, sentiment among "the yout'" is increasingly prolife, not proabortion.

cheering for eugenics.

Planned Parenthood was organized explicitly for the purpose of eliminating blacks and other "inferior dark races" (like Greeks and Italians) from the American scene.
