The Susan B. Anthony list is making preparations to push a new television ad exposing President Barack Obama’s pro-abortion record, calling him “Radical on Abortion, Wrong for America.”

In an email to supporters, SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser talked about the new commercial.

“As you know, thanks to the help of SBA List members across the country, we were able to air our television ad featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden in the key swing states of Missouri and North Carolina — exposing Obama’s radical abortion record to the voters,” she said. “The ad went viral online and is up to 297,000 views on YouTube.”

“And now — we have produced a new, hard-hitting ad that we want to get up on the air immediately in the key swing state of Ohio,” she said. “Remember: Planned Parenthood is spending millions on deceptive television advertising to mislead voters into thinking that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the radicals when it comes to abortion. It is up to us to counter-punch Planned Parenthood and provide the truth to the voters who will determine this critical election.”



Dannenfelser provides more details about the new commercial:

Once swing state voters have viewed the ad they’ll instantly know just how callous our President is on the issue of abortion. Our ad lays out the facts:

* As a Illinois State Senator, Barack Obama voted to deny equal treatment and basic protections for babies born alive from a failed abortion — not once — but four times!

* As a U.S. Senator, Barack Obama refused to back a modest parental measure that would have prohibited transporting a minor girl across state lines to obtain an abortion.

* And as President, he championed and signed into law ObamaCare — the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in history and refused to protect baby girls from the practice of gender-selective abortion – a real “War on Women.”
