Pro-Life Ad Exposes Obama's 'Extreme' Abortion Record

Ad Feedback

In a new television add, the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List is calling out President Barack Obama's record on abortion.

The ad notes that when Obama was in the Illinois legislature, he voted four times in support of late-term abortions.

In the video, a woman named Melissa Ohden speaks about being born alive, in spite of an abortion procedure.

"I know it's by the grace of God I'm alive today," she says. "If only to ask America this question: Is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward, that will discard the weakest among us? How will you answer?"

The SBA List described the commercial as part of a campaign to "shine light on Obama's extremist record on abortion."

"(The president's policies on abortion) fly in the face of mainstream American views and run counter to the President's first term pre-election talk of finding common ground," SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement.

Other pro-lifers are also speaking out against President Obama.

A bus filled with pro-life women made its way across Florida to the GOP convention.

The passengers on the "Women Speak Out" bus tour say they are tired of the Democrats' portrayal of pro-life Americans as extreme.

"When you analyze who are the extreme ones, it would have to be Obama and the Democrats," rider Jill Stanek said.

"Because most Americans don't like late-term abortions. They don't like sex-selective abortions," she continued. "They don't think babies should be allowed to be aborted because they feel the pain of it all. So Barack Obama is the extreme one."

This passionate group of women points out that pro-lifers represent the majority, and don't come close to holding the most extreme positions on abortion.

"All the Romney/Ryan ticket is trying to do is to save innocent human lives. That's how extreme they are. You know, I'll be that radical any day," Stanek said.
