SBA List campaigns to run pro-life ad in key battleground states

posted at 4:00 pm on September 25, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Susan B. Anthony list, a pro-life advocacy group that last week released an ad dramatizing the obscene partnership between President Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, aims to raise enough money to run the ad in key battleground states. To that end, they’re in the midst of a 72-hour campaign to come up with just $21,000 — so small a sum in comparison to the price of an Obama fundraiser.

As the ad depicts, the president’s support for Planned Parenthood runs deep. Even when states have legitimately — and through the proper legislative avenues — sought to defund the abortion provider, the administration has stepped in to override states’ decisions. Earlier this month, for example, after the Executive Council of New Hampshire decided not to renew a $1.8 million contract with PP, the administration stepped in and awarded Planned Parenthood of New England more than $1 million in federal funding. Just days ago, the First Lady hosted a fundraiser with Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards and EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock.

Liberals often profess that they want abortion to be “safe, legal and rare,” but the administration’s actions suggest a different vision — a vision in which abortion is safe, legal and as frequent as additional funding for PP can make it. Supporters of the organization repeat two myths ad nauseum: (1) Planned Parenthood is the only provider in certain states of women’s health services and (2) federal dollars to Planned Parenthood don’t go to fund abortions. In reality, (1) less-controversial alternatives to Planned Parenthood exist almost everywhere (anyone with Medicaid can go to their family doctor for free, for example) and (2) federal funding for PP frees up other dollars for abortions.

As the ad says, it’s time to “turn off the music.”

Update: This post originally mistakenly referred to the “Executive Council of New Jersey,” when, in fact, it was the Executive Council of New Hampshire that opted not to renew its contract with Planned Parenthood. The post has been corrected above.

I thought the ad was smart. Making it more than just a pro-choice v pro-life argument. The ad demonstrates that through all his failures, Obama refuses to stop the money flow for PP.

Kinda of odd that not one of the folks that left him were black. Wierd huh.

Kill babies on demand but don’t you dare advocate executing murders and rapist. Oh no, THAT’S going too far.

Why does Obama hate live babies?

Abortion is the first altar at the temple of the Progressive religion (BIG GOVERNMENT).

All who seek to enter the temple of power must first bow and be sprinkled with the blood of the unborn. Only through this covering of blood can they enter the holy of holies (and see the power of the Federal Government).

Progressives have their own religion (though they go shrill in proclaiming that there should be a seperation of church and state).

It’s their full time, 100% sold out to it, dream of dreams.

The Federal Government and it’s high priests controlling all manner of life and all personal decisions, how many kids you can have, if you are even “fit” to have children, if you should have your child aborted, if you should have fries in a happy meal or apples, if you should be allowed a toilet that actually flushes away your waste in one flush, if you must wear seat belts, you name it…..they want to control it……

THAT is their religion…….THEY WANT TO BE GOD (and their vehicle to do it is Government).

Here’s a thought: On the almost impossible chance that a convicted murderer or rapist is actually 100% inncoent at least the had the chance to defend themselves in court…the murdered child on the other hand is not allowed to utter a word (cry…to show they are human) in their own defense.

Sweeeeet. Racist of course, but well done.

Well – we’ll see what kind of ads SBA runs once Mittens is the nominee.

They have NOTHING to celebrate in him.

Scott Brown said he wouldn’t vote to remove funding from Planned Parenthood. Mitt Romney is Scott Brown’s political GodFather.

If abortion were never allowed here, would this nation even have a chance at electing a conservative? I hate to put it that way…

Without a doubt the Prog’s religion is government, enforced by union goons, and abortion is their sacrament. The party of death, “shared sacrifice”, and misery. Why people support them is amazing! Especially minorities, the donk’s support of the welfare and abortion have decimated the groups they purport to want to help the most.

Thanks for the link Don – few better causes.

Back when folks had the big families most were conservative – it’s only when we swapped faith in God for faith in government/and rampant sexuality, that liberalism took over.

Did anyone catch Plouffe on Chris Wallace today? He said the House had to stop catering to the Tea Party. Compared to Nancy Pelosi catering to his organization- Organizing for America… If Plouffe wasn’t nothing more than a parasitical political hack he would have figured out how to reach out to the Tea Party Movement.


David Plouffe Defends Obama’s Deficit Reduction Plan; Sen. Lindsey Graham on Foreign Policy Challenges

Why isn’t this a blog post…Lindsey Graham cleaned Plouffe’s clock, you sure can tell who the amateurs are. I can’t believe it’s Lindsey Graham bringing the pain.

Why isn’t there a blog post about the ungrateful hitchhiking sh#ts who just dumped all over the United States and thanked Sean Penn and Cindy Sheehan for all their help in getting them released?

Outstanding ad.
Very effective.
