Pro-Life Group Funds Ads in Key States Against Obama, for Senate Candidates

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The Family Research Council is undertaking a last-minute effort to urge voters to oppose Barack Obama because of his pro-abortion record and to support pro-life candidates for the House and Senate. The FRC Action PAC is launching a radio and newspaper ad campaign in the last push before Election Day.
Radio ads will target Senate races in Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky and the Michelle Bachmann Congressional race in Minnesota.
"On Monday, a newspaper ad will run in eight Ohio newspapers analyzing the impact of a President Barack Obama and an unchecked far-left Congress," the pro-life group told LifeNews.com in a statement. "Such a scenario would lead to radical policies" on abortion.
In Georgia, the FRC radio spot endorses Senator Saxby Chambliss, saying that he "opposes abortion on demand" and that his opponent, Jim Martin, has made "protecting abortion rights one of his top legislative priorities."
The Kentucky ad says Democratic challenger Bruce Lunsford "doesn’t think that a criminal that murders a pregnant woman should be charged with killing her unborn child" — referring to his opposition to the unborn victims bill.
The ad promotes Sen. Mitch McConnell as a "proven leader Kentucky and America needs" because he says "no to partial-birth abortion [and] cloning human beings."
The Minnesota ad endorses Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann — a mother of five who has "opened her home to twenty-three foster children." She "shares our family values" because she fought to put a stop "to abortion on demand, gruesome late-term partial-birth abortions…."
The Family Research Council ads come after the National Right to Life Committee endorsed a handful of Senate candidates.
NRLC also backs McConnell, Bachman, and Chambliss and supports Senator John McCain against Obama.
