Faith Family Freedom Fund, a super PAC associated with the Family Research Council (FRC), launched a radio ad campaign today targeting Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) for voting against the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2014. The radio ad will run on four radio stations across Rep. Hanna’s district: WFBL AM, WMCR FM, WSYR AM and WSYR FM.

“Yeah, I can’t believe it either. Hey there, we’re just talking about Congressman Richard Hanna and how he doesn’t care about us. He certainly has no interest in protecting the lives of the mother and the unborn child. When all other Republicans and some Democrats voted to stop federal funding of abortion, he cast the only Republican vote to keep your tax dollars flowing to the abortion industry. No American should ever be forced to pay for the abortions of others. Don’t re-elect Richard Hanna, and keep some of your hard-earned dollars.”

Faith Family Freedom Fund President Connie Mackey made the following comments about the ad buy:



“While Americans are divided on the issue of abortion, they are united on the issue of using taxpayer money to pay for it. Polls consistently show that a large majority of Americans oppose being forced to pay for other people’s abortions. Congressman Richard Hanna ignored the will of the people by voting against commonsense legislation that would ensure American tax dollars in Obamacare and other federal programs aren’t used to pay for abortions. The people of New York deserve better. We are now joining with concerned taxpayers in the 19th District in working to remove Congressman Hanna on Election Day,” concluded Mackey.

The ad was paid for by the Faith Family Freedom Fund.
