Abortion Survivor to Blast Obama Record in TV Ad During Debate
Life News ^ | October 3, 2012 | Steven Ertelt

A woman who survived a botched abortion will be featured in a television commercial criticizing President Barack Obama’s abortion record that will air during tonight’s debate.

The Women Speak Out PAC, a project of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, announced that its television ad highlighting Barack Obama’s extreme abortion record will air during tonight’s presidential debate. The ad features abortion survivor Melissa Ohden and exposes President Obama’s opposition to legislation to provide equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion.

The ad will run on KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver, Colorado costing $25,000.

“Tonight voters across the country, including many who are undecided, will be watching the presidential debate in order to learn more about each candidate,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

She told LifeNews: “America’s #1 abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, has been targeting Colorado voters with ads attempting to paint Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as extremists, but voters deserve to know who is really extreme on the issue of abortion. President Obama is so committed to abortion that he repeatedly opposed measures to ensure equal treatment and protection for babies who, like Melissa Ohden in our ad, survived a failed abortion. President Obama is far outside the mainstream on this issue.”

The ad buy comes a day after the Women Speak Out PAC announced its first $500,000 television ad campaign concentrated in key media markets in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. So far in the presidential race the SBA List and the Women Speak Out PAC have spent a combined total of more than $875,000 on television ad campaigns to expose Barack Obama’s record on abortion.

The television commercials include one profiling Obama’s pro-abortion record and another featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden exposing how Obama repeatedly failed to support a bill in Illinois as a state legislator that would provide medical protection for babies who survived botched abortions.

The launch of the Women Speak Out PAC comes on the heels of polling data released by the SBA List showing that President Obama loses support from likely swing voters once they are educated on his extreme abortion record. A majority of swing voters (54%) are less likely to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion (35% much less likely). Key voter groups were also negatively impacted including independents (46%) and pro-choicers (43%).

Between this & reverend wright ,
This is more effective critism.
Reverend wright is morally corrupt and a waste of time bringing up. The unedited tape
Was ok because it had new info. May loose
Some independent emotions due to implied racism against Obama .

Economy, foreign policy, and accountability .
Anything else won’t hit home to independents .
Independents will decide the election. If after
4 years the incumbent hasn’t “made the sale”
They are facing the outsiders court.

Independents aren’t swayed by “red meat”.
If they were then they wouldn’t be an independent and “read meat wouldn’t matter”
Because the sale was already made.

Cheerleaders are nice to look at and their cheers make you feel good , but in the end they
Don’t score the touch downs.

Sorry for the rambling and iPhone typos.

Enjoy the debate. I still say Obama knows the
Questions in advance.

Ok, one more post. More on topic.
Feel free to criticize me directly on this.

If someones pregnant due to rape or incest. Both bad situations.

If they have an abortion or give birth
They will have to be exposed to doctors and nurses in a compromising position and subjected to the emotional distress they had during the attack. I don’t understand what’s to gain by the abortion except quicker results.
If you have the child or the abortion
You will still be messed up in the head for the duration of your life due to the attack.

I don’t understand why some pro lifers
Make exception for rape & incest because whether you became pregnant or
Not you will have lifetime emotional
Scars.

Again sorry for rambling and iPhone
Typos.

MEDICARE UPDATE - Some of Obamacare just kicked in. Found out at church tonight that it started October 1st. Our church secretary's mother broke her kneecap. She stayed in the hospital for two days. NOW THE KICKER: UNDER the new law, IF a Medicare person is put in the hospital, and then dismissed and sent home, THEY CANNOT BE READMITTED FOR ANY REASON FOR 30 DAYS. This lady went home and a day after she got home, she fell and apparently broke her back. They took her back to the hospital. She was treated in the emergency room and they were told that they could not readmit her because of this new rule. IF a hospital does readmit someone, that hospital will be FINED a portion of their total Medicare money they receive each year. It was either 1 or 10%, I forget which they said. BUT, according to our secretary the doctor told her he wanted to admit her mother, but the hospital would not allow it because of this potential fine. So, Obamacare strikes. I can only see this as a means to cull the older folks. We all know that many of them are hospitalized and then maybe two or three weeks have to be readmitted. Now, this is impossible.

Yep, Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster. It needs to be repealed tout de suite. Same with where I work - but our AG has told Obama to go fishing elsewhere.
