Harrisburg, PA (LifeNews.com) — Pennsylvania Congressman Chris Carney is the subject of a new campaign launched by Americans United for Life seeking to inform voters about how members of Congress voted on the ObamaCare bill that contains massive taxpayer funding of abortions.
Last week, AUL launched the first round of its Life Counts radio campaign in Pennsylvanias 10th District.
The ad is AUL’s effort to hold Carney accountable for his record in support of taxpayer-funded abortion. During the current session of Congress, Carney voted five times to promote or pay for abortions using taxpayer dollars.
In a September 4 story from the Sunbury Daily Item newspaper, the Carney campaign attacked AUL Action, claiming its representation of Carneys record was false.
Yesterday, AUL president Charmaine Yoest responded.
Chris Carney voted for the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in American history and has a clear 100 percent rating from two leading pro-abortion advocacy groups," she said. "These facts speak for themselves; we are doubling our radio ad buy to ensure that voters in the 10th District have the opportunity to hear the truth.
Carneys record is clear: he is not pro-life.
Carney had a 100 percent rating with NARAL in 2007 and Planned Parenthood in 2008. Additionally, he voted for this years Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the health care bill which establishes taxpayer-funded abortion despite overwhelming opposition from voters.
AUL Actions Life Counts ad campaign is being doubled in the 10th District and the first round will run until September 14.
