The pro-abortion candidate for governor in Virginia is using a comment from a conservative activist about Wendy Davis, calling her Abortion Barbie, to fundraise for his campaign. Terry McAuliffe is attempting to use a controversial comment by RedState founder Erick Erickson to bring in cash for his campaign.

Erickson, who has been actively raising cash for McAuliffe’s pro-life opponent Ken Cuccinelli, pro-life points this out in a blog post this afternoon at RedState:

Terry McAuliffe just sent out a fundraising email. He clearly does not like RedState readers or me. Sounds like he is jealous of what we did for Ken Cuccinelli. Let me provide you the text:

Do you recognize the name Erick Erickson? I wouldn’t be surprised if your answer is “no.”

He’s an ultra-conservative blogger who popped up on the radar earlier this week when he called Texas State Senator Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie,” a disgusting comment that’s not remotely out of his character.

And then yesterday, Erickson raised $10,000 in small donations for Ken Cuccinelli —before 11:30 a.m.

We can’t let that kind of momentum build unchallenged. Donate $5 right now to help Terry match the Tea Party’s moneybomb.

It’s not ideal that the Cuccinelli campaign picked up a quick $10K that they’ll use to smear Terry. But it’s worse that Erickson was able to raise the money so quickly.

Here’s your opportunity folks — let’s raise more money for Ken Cuccinelli. Seriously.

Do you really want leftists beating you at this? Head back over and donate some more to Ken Cuccnelli.

After Texas abortion advocate Wendy Davis was exposed as not knowing the details of the Kermit Gosnell case, and after she said women were essentially stupid and “didn’t understand abortion” if they opposed banning late-term abortions, Erickson pulled out a label for Davis, calling her Abortion Barbie.
