SBA List Runs Pro-Life TV Ad in Missouri

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a $150,000 television ad campaign across Missouri highlighting President Obama’s extreme record on abortion and featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden.  Missouri has recently been at the center of the conversation on abortion.

“In light of the recent national discussion over abortion, it’s important Americans know the President’s best-kept secret: his extreme record on abortion.  Melissa Ohden’s powerful story draws a stark contrast to his unbending support of abortion and the abortion industry and reveals the human face to this debate.” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “President Obama’s appalling record on abortion is not just limited to his four votes to deny rights to abortion survivors but spans to his recent heartless refusal to support bans on sex-selection and late-term abortions. These actions fly in the face of mainstream American views and run counter to the President’s first term pre-election talk of finding common ground. Recent polling reveals the majority of Americans support bans on these horrific practices.”  


A partial script reads:

Ohden:            ​I was aborted, and my body discarded…like I didn’t exist.

But a nurse heard me crying…and cared enough to save my life.

There’s something else you may not know…when he was in the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama voted to deny basic constitutional protections for babies born alive from a failed abortion. Not once, but four times.

I know that it is by the grace of God I am alive today…if only to ask America this question:

Is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward? Leadership that would discard the least and the weakest among us?

This ad is the first in a series highlighting President Obama’s extremist record on abortion. The SBA List has additional ads being considered for release in North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. This week, the SBA List is in the midst of a five state “Women Speak Out: Abortion is Not Health Care” bus tour which has drawn attention to President Obama’s extreme record on abortion.

    Why blame the current administration a botched abortion from the 1970s? Standard procedures have changed since then. I think most people are opposed to “convenient” abortions vs. arguably “necessary” ones, but projecting religious views on state policy defeats the whole point of “separation of church and state” as outlined in the first amendment. This woman should be mad at her parents for making a poor decision thirty years ago, not placing blame on the current administration who wasn’t even around during the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling. It’s interesting how people forget that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court during that time, Warren E. Burger, was a Republican appointed by a Republican administration. If anybody, blame Richard Nixon. Or you could go back further and blame Thomas Jefferson who proposed the first amendment.

      The current Obama administration and most of the Democrat political machine has been and is making a concerted effort in many ways to enshrine the killing of preborn children as a “right” that must be tolerated and paid for by everyone. Obama is a pro-abortion radical whose views have extended to protecting infanticide in cases of the babies survival after a late-term-abortion attempt.

      It is true that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament uphold the principle of human life from conception. And modern science confirms the beginning of a new unique life at conception.

      Robert, this young woman is speaking up because the obama led democrats have proclaimed “a woman’s right to choose” as their main platform issue.  Obama is on record voting not to saves the lives of babies born alive after an abortion attempt.  Why isn’t that at the very least depraved indifference or negliect?  He voted no not once, but 4 different times.  In his opinion, a baby born alive after an abortion should be killed.  And obama is calling Mitt Romney extreme?????  Abortion isn’t a health issue; it’s a convenience for those who choose not to take personal responsibility to prevent unwanted pregnancies.  This is a much broader issues than simply a woman’s right to choose.  Once she becomes pregnant, it’s not only her body.  Our unborn babies should have rights also.  This brave young woman who survived being aborted, was scalded with saline.  That’s barbaric.  And Romney is extreme????
