New Ad Calls President Obama an “Abortion Extremist”

The Susan B. Anthony List is out with another hard-hitting ad telling it like it is when it comes the massive pro-abortion record President Barack Obama has put together as president.

The ad, which exposes President Obama’s opposition to legislation providing equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion, features abortion survivor Melissa Ohden and nurse and whistleblower Jill Stanek.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the pro-life women’s group, talked about the new ad, saying SBA has “a brand new, hard-hitting television ad that we want to get up immediately in key battleground states that exposes Obama’s radical record on abortion.”

“You already know that Barack Obama is an abortion extremist,” she said. “However, I’m sure you also know that far too many Americans — including those in critical battleground states — do not. It is up to us to change that — and we’re running out of time as Election Day is just four weeks from today.”

“Our ad exposes President Obama’s callous belief that a child should not be afforded equal treatment and constitutional protections if an abortion fails and the child miraculously survives — like Melissa Ohden,” Dannenfelser continued. “Imagine — live newborns being left out to die at the hands of an abortionist, and our president thinks that’s the way it should be. We’re convinced this TV ad will have a huge impact in exposing Obama’s radical views to voters who will decide the election if we can raise enough to put it on the air.”

“We refuse to let Obama hide from his callous abortion record,” Dannenfelser added.



This week the Women Speak Out PAC, an SBA List affiliated group, ran spots entitled “How will you answer?” and “Abortion Radical” in concentrated media markets in Virginia, as part of a more than $875,000 television ad campaign in swing states.

Recently released polling data from the SBA List shows that President Obama loses support from likely swing voters once they are educated on his extreme abortion record. A majority of swing voters (54%) are less likely to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion (35% much less likely). Key voter groups were also negatively impacted including independents (46%) and pro-choicers (43%).
