Organizing for Action, the political organization for President Barack Obama, is calling the ban on abortions at 20 weeks in Albuquerque, New Mexico”pretty scary.”

Never mind that the legislation would stop abortions after 20 weeks — including babies at or after viability and all the way to the day of birth — Obama’s campaign thinks the bill is scary, not the abortion of babies so very late in pregnancy.

LifeNews reported previously how Obama’s political group is leading the charge against the bill.

As the Washington Examiner reports:

President Obama’s old campaign operation rallied the troops today, warning of a “pretty scary” ban on abortions in the sixth month of pregnancy that voters in Albuquerque, N.M., might pass.

“Something pretty scary is happening in Albuquerque right now,” Kaili Lambe, who manages women’s issues campaigns for Organizing for Action, wrote in an email to Obama’s 2012 campaign volunteers and grassroots donors.

“This is a serious attack on women — and it’s a deliberate attempt by extreme interest groups to test their latest anti-women strategy,” she said.



The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance had 54 percent support among the city’s likely voters, even though “Albuquerque generally is a progressive city and New Mexico is generally a progressive state,” as ProgressNow New Mexico spokesman Patrick Davis said.
