New Pro-lIfe Ad Blasts Planned Parenthood
by David Brody
The Susan B. Anthony List strikes again. They are determined to defund Planned Parenthood in the latest budget battle on Capitol Hill and now they’re out with a television ad airing in the Washington, D.C., area. Read what they say about it below and then have a look at the ad.
“Today, a coalition of pro-life organizations led by the Susan B. Anthony List Education Fund announced the launch of a $90,000 television ad campaign in the Washington, D.C., area featuring former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director Abby Johnson exposing the true corporate realities behind Planned Parenthood’s business model, one which requires an ‘abortion quota’ to increase revenue.”
The ad, which starts Tuesday, March 29 and will run through Thursday, April 7 on D.C. area cable.
Abby: I JOINED PLANNED PARENTHOOD BECAUSE I WANTED TO HELP POOR WOMEN WITH REAL HEALTH CARE NEEDS.
I STILL DO.
Abby: I LEARNED THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS NOT ABOUT WOMEN’S HEALTH AT ALL.
THEIR PRIMARY PROFIT CENTER AND THEIR ENTIRE CORPORATE CULTURE IS ABOUT ABORTIONS.
Announcer: PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS AMERICA’S LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDER. NINETY-EIGHT PERCENT OF THEIR SERVICES TO PREGNANT WOMEN ARE ABORTIONS. AND THEY RECEIVE OVER $360 MILLION IN TAX DOLLARS EVERY YEAR.
Abby: MY SUPERIORS ACTUALLY INSTRUCTED ME TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS AT MY FACILITY.
Will the pro-lifers win out or will Speaker John Bohener and Republican leadership break their hearts and compromise on the issue during the negotiations for the long term Continuing Budget resolution?
