Pro-Life Women’s Group’s Mailer to Half Million Voters Hits Obama on Abortion

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A national organization for pro-life women is joining the fray to persuade what polls show are the 14 percent of voters who are either undecided or soft in their support for Barack Obama or John McCain. The Susan B. Anthony List has a professional new mailing that hits Obama on his pro-abortion views.
The mailing is headed to 500,000 voters in the battleground states of Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and Colorado.
The mailer shows a baby carriage on railroad tracks and says, "if you saw this, you would take action — wouldn’t you?"
The flip side of the mailing says Obama wouldn’t and highlights his votes against a measure in the Illinois legislature to provide medical care for newborns who survive failed abortions.
"Barack Obama voted four times against the Illinois State Born Alive Infants Protection Act," the SBA List mailing explains. "Despite hearing horrifying testimony from nurses about health babies being left to die in hospital supply closets, he voted against protecting these innocent children who defied all odds and survived an abortion."
"Seem to gruesome to be true? It’s true," the mailed adds.
The mailing then describes the bill Obama says will be the first he will sign as president — the so-called Freedom of Choice Act.
The Congressional measure not only makes unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy for any reason a national law but it overturns any laws to reduce abortions in all 50 states such as bans on taxpayer funding of abortions or measures like informed consent or parental notification.
The SBA List mailer says the Obama-backed bill would "wipe away all state and federal abortion restrictions from the books, including the partial-birth abortion ban."
"Even worse, your tax dollars would pay for those abortions," the mailer says. "On the issue of abortion, Obama is an extremist. And that’s a fact."
The mailer closes by asking voters to support "a team that values life and is willing to take action to protect it" and features photos of John McCain and Sarah Palin.
