Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — On the heels of campaigns from Americans United for Life and the Susan B. Anthony List, the Family Research Council is the latest to launch a new advertising campaign taking on pro-abortion Democrats seeking re-election to the House of Representatives.
FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with the legislative portion of the Family Research Council, started a television ad campaign today against five members of Congress.
The pro-life group says their voting record has been detrimental to families.
The $125,000 cable news ad buy is connected with the "20 in 10" campaign targeting those members of Congress who voted for harmful legislation, including the new health care law that allows for taxpayer funding of abortions.
The campaign targets Reps. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, Betsy Markey in Colorado, Carol Shea-Porter in New Hampshire, John Boccieri in Ohio, and Tom Perriello in Virginia.
The ad features a working-class American with a man in a suit hanging on his back, representing "big government."
He says: "I woke up one morning and it was there: big government on my back. It’s a huge problem. It’s affecting everyone. They’re taking over our health care, using our money to bail out big business."
"Even our kids are in trouble," the ad continues. "Congress supported big health care, big bailouts, big debt. Get Washington off our backs – stop big government on Election Day."
According to record form the National Right to Life Committee, none of the five members of Congress cast any pro-life votes in this past session of the House — even on issues such as federal funding of abortion where most Americans are opposed.
